Non stick muffin tin question

nzpcltd, Nov 1, 2:59am
I have just bought my 2nd set of non stick muffin trays. Usually I spray them first but after a while they stop being non stick! Should I not be spraying them at all? I am wondering if this is damaging the surface somehow however the tins dont look damaged at all. can anyone help with some words of wisdom so I can stop buying blimmin muffin trays?

Buy some from the 2nd hand shop which are not non-stick and they will live forever.

I have nothing that is non-stick - bread tins, wok, muffin tins, fry pans are all steel - and yes sometimes they rust - and nothing sticks to them at all ever. Nicely seasoned they are great.

never spray or oil mine, just use paper muffin things in them.

I have the same problem so always use paper muffin liners, however they brown better without. I might have a look for some old muffin tins as I have a few old fashioned patty tins from op shops that I use for tarts and are really good.

Perhaps it would help to just put small disks of baking paper on the bottom of the tins. The sides could easily be loosened with a small plastic knife. Lining the tins with baking paper is really tricky and I would not do it again.

I oil muffin tins, only takes a minute. Leave muffins to cool after cooking and just run a knife around edges and they don't stick.
