The Perfect Brownie Pan, Part Deux

In the name of science *snicker* I decided I must attempt one more batch of brownies using the Perfect Brownie Pan. If you read my last post on the subject you will recall that I had hoped removing the divide before the brownies cooled completely would solve the problem of it getting stuck. I used the same mix I had in my previous two attempts (what, like you’ve never used a box brownie mix? It’s good stuff!) to keep things consistent.

I waited a good 35 minutes before removing the perfect brownies from the oven. Here’s where the tricky part came in, I could not decide just how long to let the brownies cool before removing the divider. If you have any experience with cutting or eating brownies before they have completely cooled, then you know it tends to get messy. I decided that it was like ripping off a band-aid, best to do it quickly. I waited a few minutes and proceeded to remove the divider, and voila, success!! This is not to say it was perfect, that would be a lie. It was messy and I still had to use a bit of finger force, but it was much better than carving each individual brownie away from the divider.

Overall, the Perfect Brownie Pan is less than perfect, it’s just ok, but for me that is good enough; I’ve already purchased it after all. The absolute best part of the pan and all of its parts is that it is incredibly easy to clean. Before the Perfect Brownie Pan invaded my home, I would use a glass dish and let me tell you how much of a pain that is to clean! But you probably know, as I’m sure you are a brownie lover too.

So, that’s my update, the price is probably not worth it for most since it’s not exactly as wonderful as the makers would have you believe. But, clean up is simple and it makes brownies. That in itself might be enough for some.

I'm glad you were able to get it work right! I've seen a lot of reviews on this (that's how I found this blog post)...deciding weather to buy it on I think after this real life review, I might have to give it a try!

I just saw this commercial and it made me giddy. Seriously. I'm a brownie lover {boxed brownies at that} and sucker for handy dandy things that seem to make my life easier ;) I think I'll wait for this to go on sale and give it a try myself. Too bad it didn't go quite so easily as the commercial but then things are always better on tv.

Yes, I was quite sad it wasn't perfect. Though I really should put more emphasis on how easily it cleans up! I've never had a brownie pan that I could just wipe off. That alone almost makes it worth buying
