Springform Pan Buyers’ Guide

What is a springform pan?

A springform pan is a type of device used in baking that has sides that can be disassembled from the base. The base of the pan and the sides are separate pieces that can be put together when the base is aligned with a groove that is at the bottom sections of the walls. There is a latch on the exterior which secures the pieces together by tightening the belt that turns into the walls of the pan and holds the base at the groove of the wall base. A springform pan is usually used to make dishes that cannot be flipped to remove from the pan they were baked in such as cheesecakes and tortes. Dishes with a delicate bottom layer such as the cracker crumb dust on cheesecakes can be baked with a springform pan to avoid deconstructing the layer.

How to use a springform pan?

Springform pans look complicated but are surprisingly easy to use and can help you bake a flawless cake. Before starting to bake, make sure the bottom and the sides of the fit together fully and are secure. This will help you reduce or completely eliminate any leaking. Place the sides and the bottoms together. Once they are together, shut the clamps completely and fill up the pan with your desired mixture. Bake your dish according to the recipe and let it cool down. If your pan is not a nonstick pan, then you can carefully use a butter knife to loosen out the edges around the sides of the pan. If you are using a nonstick pan, use a scraper or a rubber spatula. Open the clasp, remove the sides of the pan, and serve.

How to get the cake out of the pan?

There are a few methods for removing your cake from a springform pan. One way is to let your cake chill overnight. Removing a cake while it is still warm may lead to cracks in the crust. When you are ready to serve your dish, loosen the sides of the cake by using a butter knife dipped in hot water. Run the butter knife across the edges of the cake and loosen it. Keep wetting the knife every few inches to avoid dragging a dry knife along the cake. You can also try using a source of heat to warm the bottom of the cake and the cake becomes easier to move. A blowtorch or a gas burner can be used as the heat source. Once this is done, unclasp the sides, remove them and slide the cake onto a platter to serve.
