Baking can be an expensive hobby when you need lots of tools to get the job done so being able to find cheap cake pan is extremely important. The good news is that there are a few places where you can consistently find cake pans for cheap. This entire site is dedicated to doing just that, but in this post I want to take a closer look at the two places that I recommend, Amazon and eBay, to help you decide which site you should shop from. Both of them are great choices, but different situations and occasions will make one a better choice than the other.
Amazon has built their marketplace to allow you to buy just about anything under the sun and have all of it shipped to your door at a great price. If you’re planning an entire party and need all of the favors or gifts to go along with it, you can take care of everything right on Amazon. This makes it the place to take care of all of your shopping at once. Retired cake pans are a bit more expensive on Amazon than on eBay, but they are more consistently available.

eBay is the best place to get cheap cake pans, flat out. Pans that are ten or fifteen bucks elsewhere can usually be found on eBay for less than five bucks! Some of them are used, but most of the time they are in excellent condition. Use eBay if all you need is the pan. I usually don’t buy more than one thing at a time on the site since it requires working with different vendors and shipping charges, not to mention that you can’t lump everything into one shopping cart and pay for it at once. If all you need is a cheap cake pan, use eBay!

There certainly are other places to find cheap cake pans, but none of them are as consistently affordable as the two listed above are. Other ideas are scouring garage sales or post-holiday sales at big box retailers.
