I recently purchased a Baker’s Secret Mini Fluted Tube Pan from Amazon.com. I had a pan quite like it but it was all bent and beat up. I am a person who makes good use out of my pots and pans. So I needed a new one. I’m very put out by how hard it is to find baking pans that are not non-stick. I like stainless steel without non-stick crap but after searching around for an hour, I settled on the non-stick one. Whatever.
So it arrived and I was all, oh cool! until I went to peel the paper label off the top.
I am utterly disgusted with the glue they use to attach the paper to the pan. I cannot remove this stuff. It simply will not come off. I have made my fingers sore trying to pick it off. When I do get a little off, it sticks to my fingers and I can’t get it off of them! I tried soaking in warm water, but water seems to just make it harder.
I know there is a glue that comes off easily while holding paper firmly attached. I’ve seen it. Why can’t they use that? I am left with a brand new pan that looks like hell. I don’t even know what will happen to that glue mess if I tried to bake with it still on....which I totally would not even attempt to do.
How can this company charge people money for this crap with good conscience when they have to know (because I am not going to believe I am the only person with this problem) about this horrible issue? I would return this to Amazon but they will charge me to ship it back since this is not their fault and shipping would be nearly as much as the $10 I paid for the pan. Ten dollars might not be a lot of money, but it’s money I no longer have and have given to them for a product that is useless to me.
I will NEVER buy another Baker’s Secret product. Never.
