Sometimes cheap is just... cheap.
I bought these pans thinking they would be great for potlucks - cheap enough that if they don't come home, it's no big loss. Problem? They're cheap. No matter what I do, everything sticks to one of these. The other is slightly better but things don't brown evenly in them either. Maybe someone else will have better luck with them. I'll take my chances with my better pans.
Before I bought these, I thought I'd love them. I don't, yet I've kept them for years. Is there something in your cabinet that you thought you'd love before you got it, but were disappointed when actually using it? Is it time to let it go?
