Springform pans are made of two pieces - the removable bottom and the ring that fits around it forming the sides of the pan. The ring expands open or tightens together by the clip on the side of the pan. Springform pans are used for delicate foods like cheesecake or shortbread that are not easily unmoulded from a regular cake pan. With a spring form pan, simply unclip and remove the ring for easy access to slice and serve. This Circulon Bakeware non-stick springform pan features Circulon's unique elevated circles, which reduce surface abrasion caused by utensils. The pan is made of heavy gauge carbon steel for proper heat distribution and maximum durability. The high quality non-stick finish both inside and out delivers excellent food release and means there is no need to grease the pan for baking. The medium colour tone aids in even browning, and clean-up is a breeze. Oven safe to 260°C.
