Forget about the nightmare cleaning your mini donut pan. Silicone bakeware is much easier to clean than traditional metal or aluminum bakeware. The nonstick qualities of silicone will make cleanup a breeze, no more scrubbing for hours. Silicone bakeware can be cleaned in the dishwasher and you’ll never have to buy paper muffin liners again. The Belgoods Bakeware 12-cup mini donut hole pan in vibrant orange measures 11.4 x 7.9 x 1 inches. They store very conveniently and won’t dent like metal bakeware can. You can drop it without having to worry that it might break like glass or ceramic bakeware can. These characteristics also make it less hazardous to use, because you do not have to be concerned about sharp edges or broken parts. Visit our Amazon page for more details:
