USA Pans Springform Pan 9" x 3" (1085SF-6)
This is a good story. USA Pans are, as the name implies, baking pans made right here in the United States, by the world's largest manufacturer of commercial bakeware, the American Pan Company. In today's world of global manfacturing, that is unusual enough, but there's more. USA Pans are made like no other, in ways that make this bakeware uniquely practical, convenient and durable.
USA Pans are made of a blend of 65% recycled steel and 35% aluminum. This means they conduct heat very evenly and efficiently (aluminum) and they are extremely strong and rigid (steel). It's the best of both worlds. This aluminized steel is formed into pans with an all-over rippled, or corrugated, surface, that allows exceptional air circulation for even baking and browning. The edges of the pans are rolled over steel wire for unsurpassed rigidity.
That's just the pan itself - now for the surface. USA Pans are coated, on both sides, with Americoat, a safe, non-stick, silicone coating that contains no PTFEs or PFOAs. This coating means you never need to grease the pans or use parchment paper, and it ensures that cleanup is as easy as wiping out with a paper towel, running under hot water, or hand washing. Silicone is heat-resistant, impervious to stains and odors, completely non-reactive with food, and as durable as the day is long.
So, given all that, plus the USA Pans lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship, we think that USA Pans are a great investment, for the seasoned baker and the novice alike. These unique pans will be your first step toward successful, consistent baking.
