4 Steps to Springform Pan Success

Springform pans can make or break a beautiful torte, cheesecake, or tart. Use these helpful tips to ensure success:

1. Double-check that the sides fit securely in the shallow lip on the bottom of your pan before you begin assembling your recipe.

2. Allow food to cool before removing the sides to prevent the dish from collapsing.

3. Before removing the sides of your pan, carefully run a knife around the edge of the cooked food.

4. When purchasing a springform pan, look for one made with heavy-gauge steel; avoid those made with thin aluminum or tin that can easily warp in a hot oven.
