This pan is wonderful and easy to use & clean. If you follow your recipe diligently, it produces the most moist, pretty-shaped madeleines w/o sticking to the pan! And then you too will feel the urge to quote from Proust's ""Remembrance of Things Past"":
""The sight of the little madeleine had recalled nothing to my mind before I tasted it...."" but ""....as soon as I had recognized the taste of the piece of madeleine soaked in her decoction of lime-blossom which my aunt used to give me .... immediately the old grey house upon the street, where her room was, rose up like a stage set to attach itself to the little pavilion opening on to the garden which had been built out behind it for my parents.""
I already have these pans that I bought at a Sur La Table store & I bake madeleines very often. Needless to say, they always turn out perfectly. I made this purchase today to give as a Xmas gift to a dear friend.
