Are Lou Malnati's pans sold through mail any good?

Are the deep dish Lou Malnati's pans sold through Tastes Of Chicago any good? Are they the same kind they use in the Malnati's restaurants? What are they made of and will they blacken?

The website doesn't mention the specs. of the pan, but looking at the photo, I can tell you it's not the same pan they use at Malnati's, at least not at any of the locations I've been to.

If you search the forum for 'blackening a deep dish pan' , you will find a lot of info on the subject.

I've had good results using AMCO aluminized steel cake pans. They're also less expensive.

Chicago Metallic makes a black-coat anodized version also:
