Non-stick muffin tins not non-stick

daeira | Aug 5, 201303:43 PM     17

Perhaps this is my incompetence more than anything, but I'm finding that my non-stick muffin pan isn't at all non-stick. In fact, I'm having such a hard time removing muffins. I'm wondering if anybody also experiences this and what remedies there may be.

For some background:
-The non-stick surface isn't scratched at all.
-I always use a plastic knife to run along the muffin cup to loosen the muffin.
-It's a mini-muffin tin so the cups are much smaller
-The muffins are fully cooked when they're removed from the oven, and are browned.
-I don't grease or spray the cup of the muffin tin prior to baking.
-I typically bake low-fat muffins

I was wondering if there might be better bakeware to use and am open to any suggestions. I'm getting so tired of struggling to get my mini-muffins out.

Thanks in advance.
