Harder to clean than it might be worth...
on December 1, 2016
I have used these twice. I washed them in hot soapy water when I first got them. The first time, I made muffins. The muffins came out perfectly and didn't stick to the cups in chunks, but they were thoroughly coated and incredibly hard to clean, even with a bristled bottle brush. I chalked it up as something I had done and attempted a second time. I tried cupcakes the second time and had the same result. The cupcakes pop out easily enough, but the cup itself is coated in crumbly, cooked on batter. The very description states, "Effortless food release—no greasing or cooking spray needed." Well, they have soaked overnight and it's still a total pain in the butt to get them completely clean. If you feel like soaking and scrubbing, these are great. I will try again with non-stick spray and hope for better results, but it is mildly frustrating to use these for now. The yellow cup is immediately after the muffins were removed, the purple cup is after soaking overnight and then being scrubbed over once with a bristled bottled brush.
