I have been cooking for many, many years and I love to try all the new things when they come along. I have bought a lot of the Rachel Ray bakeware after I got my first piece. After using this cookware, I got rid of my other cookware. The color really caught my eye. I use all the different colors. When we have company, everyone loves the product. It is easy to clean and very durable. The product is a little heavier than most bakeware, but it does such a great job baking foods that I don't really notice the weight now. It goes right to the table from the over. I love the high sides and built in handles. This is a great product. I bake breads a lot and this loaf pan is the best! Almost forgot! It cleans up easily either by hand or in the dishwasher!!!!
