This is the mini loaf pan I bought last year after Xmas on Sale. So have not had the chance to try it out yet. I can't wait. Nordic Ware pans are not cheap but are a great investment. They are a very well made and high quality pan. Tip is buy them just after a big holiday or season and you can get them at 1/2 price. This pan was regular $40 CDN but I bought it for $20 CDN.
