Lodge StraightSided Muffin Pan
The Lodge Muffin Pan is a traditional cast iron pan that gives baked goods a beautiful golden-brown crust. Since this pan is cast iron, it isn't non-stick, and it can take a year or so before baked goods will slide easily out of the pan. Until then, you'll want to oil the cups before pouring the batter in. Though a cast iron muffin pan is a little more work than a non-stick pan, it does create some of the most delicious cup cakes and corn bread muffins around. These pans also get better with age, and many people pass down their used cast iron to children and grandchildren.
