A grateful grandparent reported: “Perfect muffin removal every time. My grandchildren can remove their muffins or cupcakes cleanly without leaving some of the food in the pan. I find that in my oven, blueberry muffins and cornbread will bake at least minutes for cooking time Very easy to clean and dry I am very happy with these baking cups and intend to use them forever.
Air fryers, microwaves, Instapots…
Buyers are thrilled that these versatile baking liners go beyond traditional ovens.
An impressed buyer reported“I only have an air fryer for one oven, and I can’t find any cupcake pans that will fit. So they’re perfect. They fit on the tray, aren’t too big, and they cook easily…Cakes and muffins are easy to remove and wash perfectly.”
This reviewer uses them in the oven, freezer and microwave“We don’t have a muffin tin, so I bought these to make an egg and zucchini muffin ahead of time and then freeze until morning. Then you put the cooked but frozen egg muffin in the microwave to eat on the go. I put these ‘paper’ muffins on a cookie sheet or pie pan before baking.”
“Works great in the Instapot,” another intervened.
“Best Air Fryer Muffin Pans!!” says an enthusiastic parent. “I have two college-age daughters and a heavily used air fryer. They wake up, tear up the muffin mix, pour it into the cups, and 8 minutes later we have 5 perfect muffins…I would recommend to anyone using an air fryer to cook.”
Dishwasher safe is always a plus, especially for busy bakers.
The parent above continued with their rave review: “They’re dishwasher safe!!! Flip them over to wash and they’re good to go next time. They never needed a spray and the muffins come out even screaming hot. The girls get what they want different small amounts of muffins, and I get what I want easily and is DISHWASHER safe! Sorry, I love that part.”
“I’ve baked muffins and brownies in the cups, and nothing ever stuck to them,” added another. “They wash easily in the dishwasher, and they’re shiny and colorful.”
