I purchased two of the 5 inch pans while in Seattle. I was planning to bake a few pot pies. I washed the pans and left them sitting on the kitchen counter. The next day my housekeeper was cleaning the kitchen and asked me how to remove the rust on the pans. I could not believe rust was forming on my new unused pie pans. I was so angry, the pans were immediately tossed into the trash bin.
The key words in the product description are ""Tinned Steel"". Do not waste your time on a tin pan. It was not worth my time to return them
These tins were great for the small Thanksgiving. I was having only a small part of my family and wanted to make two pies, but didn't want 20 slices of pie sitting in my fridge for the next week. For 2 bucks these pie tins are great. Crust was not soggy (I've noticed some ceramic pie plates have a tendency to make my crust soggy), the rim has enough space for pinching and they are a good size for a 1/2 recipe.
I would highly recommend, but make sure you treat them like cast Iron (they are tinned after all) - wash and dry after use. Don't be a fool and toss them if a little rust gets on them. Take some steel wool, SOS or a green pad to them - the rust will come right off and won't harm you at all
The website indicate the Tinned Steel Individual Pie Pan, 5"" is also available in 7"" size, but does not appear to accept the order
