Editor's Notes

July 13, 2019:

Unlike regular cake pans, springform pans feature sides that conveniently can be removed from the base, which ensures a perfectly shaped, intact finished product that’s not crumbly, mushy, or cracked. They lend themselves well to desserts dishes like cheesecakes with graham cracker crusts, as well as pizzas, quiches, and more.

Joining the list today is the Rachael Ray 9-Inch, from the Oven Lovin’ collection of bakeware, which boasts heavy-gauge, carbon steel construction. Its nonstick design allows for quick and easy food release, well-shaped desserts, and fast, effortless cleanup. It comes in the standard, nine-inch design and is oven-safe for up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. A portion of sale proceeds are donated to Yum-o, Rachael Ray’s nonprofit organization that partners with organizations that feed hungry children, as well as funds educational opportunities for kids interested in culinary careers.

Some bakers also prefer the convenience of a springform pan for their square-shaped treats, so the Anolon Advance joins the list as a viable option for low-hassle brownies and bars. It features a durable base and expandable collar, along with a soft, rubberized grip for simple assembly and quick release of your dessert. For those who want a Bundt cake made in a springform pan, there’s an option for that too: The Nordic Ware Fancy, which comes with an insert that produces a finished product with a hollow center and fluted top. It’s from a family-owned company that was founded in 1946 and actually pioneered the Bundt pan, with most of its products currently still manufactured in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The Elsterware 10-inch was highly convenient for parties and picnics, thanks to its secure lid and carrying handle, but it leaves the list in this update, unfortunately, due to issues with availability.
