It's a cook's nightmare: you make a beautiful cake or lasagna and then struggle so hard to wriggle a piece out of the pan, it looks like a collapsed mess by the time it hits the plate. Enter the Lock n' Bake pan--a 2004 winner in Hammacher Schlemmer's Search for Invention competition--which solves that problem with sides that fold down after baking and a flat, removable tray for neater serving.
