Mini 12cm/4.5 inch spring form cake tin/push pan from Poundland.

Just bought a couple of these, couldn't help myself, been a bit curious about push pans since the British Bake off. The sides move outwards when you unclip the clip and the bottom can be pushed upwards, to release the cake more easily.

The clips and the base are surprisingly sturdy.

A 13cm push pan in Lakeland is £8.99! [I'm pretty sure everything on the Bake Off is from Lakeland, they seem to be sponsored my Lakeland!] So I am getting to try them for just over a 10th of the price.

Heat from me, can't go wrong for a quid!
Personally I'm not a fan of this style of tin, every single one I've had has ended up warping and leaking! Even expensive ones from TK Maxx.

Wonder if this would be any good to make large Yorkshire puddings?

not sure if the batter might leak out? and if you heat oil in it first that may well leak out being so thin... anyway, what the heck - spend your pound, try it (maybe stand it on a baking sheet just in case?!?)

hmmmm Pie

There's a reason why the tins @ Lakeland cost £8.99! They're made from a considerably thicker alloy which allows for much better heat distribution. Further, the thickness means that they will not warp. This is particularly important for the bottom disc which can warp or get bent very easily, reducing the tins ability to retain moist mixtures.

Further to all this, the Lakeland tins have a double layer of teflon non-stick. It's extremely high quality which means that they are unlikely to scratch, even with relatively harsh treatment.

That all said, for £1.00, this is good value - I just wanted to point out that the two products compared are completely different and cater for different needs.

For full disclosure - I had 12 happy years working for Lakeland before I embarked upon my legal career in June - A truly fantastic company who care passionately about their customers.

Have to say, I bought the equivalent of these tins from The Range for the same price about a year ago. They have been used heavily(I make cakes for a living) ever since. I've never had a problem with them at all, and although they are starting to show signs of wear now, for the amount of use I've had from my £1 tins I'm a very happy baker!

I made Yorkshire puds in one of these style things and was perfect.

I personally wouldn't use one because they're too thin for a decent bake but for a pound they're okay when making stuff with kids, or something that needs quick heat, like a Yorkshire Pudding.

Great value but as per other posts can't really be compared the more expensive alternatives. Not sure it can be called a push pan either, it looks like a standard spring form tin. The 2 are a bit different. Just saying, but hot for £1!

I got 4 of these last week and made quiche in them,came out the tin no problem hot from me

Definitely worth a go at that price, heat from me too

I do like Lakeland stuff, everything I have bought there has been quality apart from one rubbish tin opener. However as much as I like them, my wallet does not especially when I am not sure if the product will be of benefit for me and I want to try something out on a whim.

I tried the cake tins out today in the oven. I also drew round them on a piece of paper before I started, so I could compare the shape of them before and after cooking. Here's some pictures in case any one is curious:

I put a paper clip on one tin so I knew which was which:

I can't say I noticed any warping. I didn't have any problems with leaking either. I did grease the tins but didn't line them with anything. It was very easy to get the cakes out

Over all I am very happy
