The characteristics of stainless steel cannele mold are that it is not easy to rust and is easy to maintain.
Iron molds are easy to rust and require timely maintenance. Stainless steel molds are relatively better.
However, the disadvantage of stainless steel is that it has poor thermal conductivity and is easy to stick on the mold. So if you are using a stainless steel mold, be sure to apply more butter or other release oil before pouring the batter.
Aluminum molds are characterized by good thermal conductivity and high cost performance. Even novices can bake cannele with beautiful colors. Moreover, the aluminum mold is also suitable for refrigerated desserts and can be used in the production of jelly and pudding.
However, aluminum molds have poor durability and are easily deformed.
The characteristic of silicone molds is that they can bake a large batch at a time, and the mold care is also simple. The price is cheap and the threshold is low for novices.
The disadvantage is that the mold itself is very soft and will thermally expand when baked. Therefore, the batter should not be poured too full.
Select mold size and quantity
Cannele made with a large mold has more moist and soft parts inside. On the other hand, Koruri made with a small mold has more hard and crispy skin. Moreover, the large-sized Koruri tastes chewy enough, and the small-sized Koruri is fun to eat one bite at a time. The size and quantity you make depends on your goals.
