I am such a fan of Wilton's Indulgence line and this Tube Pan is no exception. I do not own one myself, though I wish I did. However, I worked for a small men's residence as a personal chef and they had one of these in their kitchen. I loved it for making coffee cakes and pound cakes for weekend treats for them. Wilton's Indulgence line is unique because of its special non-stick nature. They have created a non-stick coating that is apparently so good that they are confident that you can use a metal utensil on it. I have not done so because I don't want to tempt fate. But they do back up their claim with a 10 year warranty, so it probably is safe to use metal. This awesome non-stick coating keeps cakes from sticking, and when using this pan I never had pieces of cake left in the pan when I tried to get it out. Additionally, the design of this pan is excellent. Handles are such a great idea and all Tube Pans should have them. Because Tube Pans have to be turned upside-down to get their contents out, and because their contents are often very heavy, it can be very difficult to get a cake out of one whole. This pan, with its handles, eliminated much of the difficulty. I would love to have one of these pans in my own kitchen.
