of course I have some,
but I don't like them very well
they mostly do stick   and if you add any type of greasing  it damages the finish over time
it's also      too easily damaged by someone using metal utensils when you've set out proper items to use

and then there are the cookie sheets   a whole other category of loathsome
dark and air-bake---turn down the heat   light 
I've tried them all              the cookies don't spread properly on any of them    and still stick to most
I also tried the  silpat      and hated it    cookies don't cook on any of that the way I want them
now I just use parchment paper on the old-fashioned cheap metal sheets

and then there is the spatula that you can't actually get under a cookie without tearing it up
the coated ones are too thick
I used to have a good one but my sister turned on the oven without checking and melted it

I much prefer to use "regular" baking pans.  They are what I grew up with and I'm just more comfortable using them.  I have tried the non-stick pans and felt that they are not really non-stick.  Like Nellie, I too have experienced the problem with the finish if you grease them.  And, then there is the problem that when you notice in the non-stick coating you are to stop using them.  So, I just stick with my regular pans and continue to have success with them.

I prefer the regular pans.  If I think something will stick, I use parchment paper.  Of course, you can't use parchment in something like a bundt pan, but most baking pans are fine with it.  I am also afraid of the finish coming off, so generally I just go with regular pans.

I just posted this info under another subject. 
Look at Bed Bath and Beyond for USA pans.  
These are probably the best pans I have.  I just wish I had found them earlier.  
They are not "non stick" with a coating but I have never had anything stick.  The bottom of the pan is a bit odd as it has ridges on the bottom.
I also wish that I could replace all my pans with these but the pans I have will probably outlast me so I see no reason to buy new ones when the ones I have are perfectly good.  As the ones I have become damaged they will be replaced with the USA pans.

I ordered the Nordic Ware (?) 9x9 pan from Bed Bath and Beyond ------- I tried to get to actually talk to a rep but a recording said they were too busy. 
Subtotal: $15.99
Shipping: $5.99
Tax: $1.87
Total: $23.85

We'll see what that's like when it arrives.     (I was told that the 20% discount is good IN the store - not mail order ~sigh~)

I have some of both kinds.  Some of the "non-stick" are anything but that lol.  I always have to shorten the baking time with those anyway.  Usually no guess work with the plain pans.  But I have noticed that the newer plain baking sheets always pop up on one side in the oven.

The non stick pans for baking really don't matter as I always use parchment.  I hate the way the non stick finish comes off so when buying pans I avoid the non stick ones. 
I thought I liked the air filled pans, I have a 13X9 and many cookie sheets that are Air-Bake pans and anything I bake seems to come out much lighter in color.  Some bar cookies seem to be completely under done and the bottom sometimes crumbles so I have gone to my USA Pan for most of my 13X9 baking and I am sticking with the Air Bake cookie sheets only because I can not think of an excuse to spend the money to replace "good" pans.

Sounds like everyone prefers the regular pans.  I don't have non stick baking  pans and always use parchment for cookies.  That way I never have to grease them.  I like Pyrex for pies so I can see if the bottom crust is done.  One thing I never understood is the non stick saucepans.  The non stick stuff would come off and get into your food.  I've always preferred Corning then I can use them on my smooth top or in the MW.  Before I had smooth top I used Revere ware.  No non stick for me.

Nancy, that's an awful price to pay for one pan.

 nancy,
 that's just not right         they do take coupons on-line      I would call the store near you and talk to them about it         maybe they can get it reduced

when my niece registered for her wedding         I went to the store to purchase some moderate priced towels they had chosen   and they happened to be 50% off        but they were out of her color
a very nice gentleman working there  not only went on line to order them for me          he did it in a way that I could use a  the $ 5.00 coupons I had on each section as he ordered as I had planned to do in the store and had it all shipped to her home free of charges  
they also price-match     and always have taken expired coupons

if there is a store anywhere near you it might be worth the trip just to see how much stuff they have and how nice their employees are        there is ALWAYS someone near to help

Well - I just got an email from Bed Bath Beyond and the pan I ordered has been shipped.  I'm eager to see it.  If it's a pan I want I will use a coupon (they emailed me one) and order more.

I always thought they took coupons on line and over the phone. 
When I worked there...for a brief time when I was a bit insane....everyone had coupons.  If someone forgot a coupon I always had a few extra that I would scan for them and put into the pouch. 
(sad thing is employee discount was...you guessed it 20%... everyone walking through the door had a 20% coupon and employees could not use coupons with the employee discount so I could actually get better prices on some thins not being an employee) Anyway great place to work and I think I left more than one paycheck at the store. Awesome return policy so if you do not like the pans just return them.  Even after you have tried them a few times. You would not believe what we took back!

Joy Joy Joy ---- I just received (UPS works late!) the 9x9 square pan I ordered on 7/19 from Bed Bath and Beyond.  That's fast service. The brand is Nordic Ware and it's heavy.   I am delighted to have a pan that is not non-stick.
The one I currently have on order from Cutlery and More will arrive soon and I can see which is best.

Nordic Ware also has very good pans. 
I do hope you will call and have your totoal adjusted by 20%.  They should refund the difference.
