This is an 8" x 8" x 2" bakery pan that has perfectly straight sides. A great advantage of this pan is that you may cut on it. It is perfect for brownies, cornbread, or gingerbread. Aluminum is malleable, and scratches or scuffs on the pan are normal. This WILL NOT affect your baked goods. We receive our pans from a commercial bakery supplier and not a retail supplier so they are not pristeen.
