Vintage Ovenex Tins

ovenex muffin tins One reason that I love shopping at the thrift store is that there is so much character in some of the things you find. My mom found these at the thrift store and bought them for me. Aren’t they fantastic? They are from the 50’s I believe and look at how sparkly they are. I absolutely love them, they are so much prettier than those dull gray nonstick pans I have at the moment. ovenex loaf tin So out with the new (nonstick) and in with the old I say. I’ll pass mine along to someone who wants them, and then every time I make muffins or a loaf of something yummy, I will be able to do it in a fun, pretty, sparkly pan.

    They look wonderful – far more exciting than my black ones! Do they give the cakes patterned edges?

    Thanks everybody.

    Pomona, I haven’t used them yet, but I imagine they would as the pattern is indented. I’ll let you know after I get a chance to use them.

    These are just like the baking tins my Mother used in the 50’s. She got rid of them in the early 60’s because of an alert on the lead content of the metal. Please be careful and have them tested before using them.

    I have an Ovenex 8″ baking pan that I saved from my grandmother’s kitchen years ago – it is lovely but quite rusted – I wonder 1. is it de-rustable? 2. is anyone interested in buying it?

    Hi … I’m originally from Seattle currently living in Perth, Western Australia. I have an Ovenex bread pan which was my Dad’s – it would be somewhere around 90 years old; it is before the starburst pattern – it has little squares as its pattern. I just used it today to bake Banana Bread. It just keeps on keeping on. I lined it with baking paper although it is in quite good shape. Thought you would be interested.

    I have an 18″ baking sheet, cookie pan by ovenex. It was my grandmother’s.I have a bread pan or two also. She must have purchased them in the late 1920’s and early 1930’s. It is nice to see other people love these also.
