How often do you use your odd size pans?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

In the process of purchasing magic line square, sheet and rounds.

I was wondering how often you use the odd size pans.

In my experience I use the 6,8 10, and 12 rounds.

I have no odd sizes so I don't know how often they are called for?

I was going for 6' through to 13" x 3 in the square. and round.

Do you use all those pan sizes?

My most used sizes for round wedding cakes was 6/9/12/15.

And I hate, hate, hate 3" deep pans.  YMMV.

Love my 3" pans. I only bake 2" cakes but I like the extra pan.

I also prefer the removable bottom pans.

I do not have the odd sizes (on way wish list). AZ Coutour uses them a great deal. Her cakes are gorgeous.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Why do you hate the 3 " pans? Those were the ones I was getting .

I Thought they would be better as I wouldn't have to worry about random recipes not fitting in the 2" or overflowing .

Thought they would have a bit more scope.

Just bought a bunch of magic lines to fill up my collection of round pans so I have at least 2 of all sizes from 5-12. I chose 3 inch deep pans for more versatility.

My 11" I have never used, still has the label on it, lol, 5" rarely.

 

I like to have a 3" difference in tiers, and either a 4" or 6" on top, so the 7", 9", 13" and 15" quite regularly. I love my 3" high pans as well.

I've use Magic Line 2" pans (love them).  I use all sizes often, including 5", 7", 9" & 11"

OP as you can see both 2 and 3 inch deep pans work, and having odds and evens is a plus. It all boils down to personal preference. Just get a good brand.

George101 ~~Are you a hobby baker OR will you be selling cakes?

 

Over the past 3 years as a hobby baker, I went bonkers and purchased (usually with coupons at local craft stores) TWO of each pan set:

WILTON BRAND PAN SETS:

Round

Oval

Petal

Hexagon

Heart

 

FAT DADDIO'S SQUARE/RECTANGLE PAN SETS:

Square

1/4 sheet (2 ea)

1/2 sheet (2 ea)

 

Since I hobby bake, I only bake when I want to (not because I HAVE to).  The pans I use 99% of the time?

 

Wilton round 6x2"

Wilton round 8x2"

Wilton round 10x2"

 

It's easier and doesn't require near as much "fiddling around" to use those for hobby baking gifts. 

 

IF I was starting over with the knowledge I have painfully gained, I would purchase 100% Magic Line, 2" high pans in round and square in even and odd sizes.    Unfortunately, since my existing pans work "ok", I can't rationalize chucking them and buying Magic Line.

Thanks all for your help

Magic line is my pan of choice, you have helped confirm I was making the right choices, this forum is an amazing support and wealth of knowledge.

Thank you all I really appreciate it.

Hi, I like the odd size square pans mostly because it's easier to calculate batter amounts....

post #12 of 17

I use my 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11 inch rounds very often. Wouldn't be able to function without them. Ditto on preferring 2 in. depth

Can you tell me why it is easier to calculate batter amounts?

HI, this is just me but I use boxed mixes pretty often and a 10" round takes one mix.

so a 9" square takes the same....

 

a 14" round takes 2 box mixes so a 13" square takes the same....

 

I hope that's helpful to you...
