I have only used this three times and the lightest scratch becomes permanent. While this has a good weight to it, it already looks like it is 5 years old from three uses. I would not buy this again.
this is a very nice round layer cake pan, strong and always look bright after cleaning, I used on my oven for cake preparing was awesome. it is offered at Kmart with a very good deal and all the food I prepared on it was great. this item is very recommended for cakes lover.
