    A friend of mine loves her Williams Sonoma gold(something) muffin pans. I am considering getting one, but they are expensive. Do any of you have experience with them, or can recommend an alternative?
    Thanks,
    Jo Ann

    i will agree williams-sonoma is expensive, but quality things ARE! i'm not sure if Wilton makes muffin pans, but i'm guessing they do--they make some really great cake pans.

    I still use my mother's (they are probably even my grandmother's) old, old cupcake/muffin tins. I love them. When I use them with the liner papers, I don't have to worry about anything sticking. For one, I love using the old things, and for two, I am too cheap to replace them, as long as I can still use the old ones!

    Wilton's does have some...they are very nice. I treated myself to a pan last year.

    I bought some stainless steel muffin pans from Amazon and I love them! Everything bakes so evenly and in the amount of time listed in the recipe.

    They are a little pricey. But, I bet they are less than the Williams-Sonoma.

    I usually get my pans etc. at TJ Maxx, Marshalls or Tuesday Morning, where I can get TOL brands for 50% off or more. Sometimes it takes a few weeks, but I usually end up finding what I want.

    I wonder if it really matters - especially if you use liners. I've been wanting another muffin pan but every time I look at the prices I decide I don't really NEED it, so I don't get it. I've been thinking of stopping at a local consignment shop and looking for an older one. I like the character of the older ones anyway!

    Jo Ann, I bought mine from King Arthur's (http://www.kingarthurflour.com/) and love them. They are similar to the ones Williams Sonoma sells. :)

    I have the one made by Wilton and really like it, even with no liners in them they release easily.

    I would suggest getting some older ones at a secondhand store. Just make sure they are HEAVY. Those make the best baked goods.
    Mine are older than dirt and "well-seasoned".
