These pans are decent weight and bake fine but they are deeper than other standard mini muffin pans. Because of this the bottoms are narrower and standard mini muffin papers don't go all the way in to rest on the bottoms. This causes the cakes to come out kind of squashed looking with not quite flat bottoms. If you don't use paper liners, I suppose these pans will work fine for you. If you do, I recommend trying the "Wilton Recipe Right 24 Cup Mini Muffin Pan" for just about a dollar more, it has the same diameter at the top of the cups but is not quite as deep.
