Be careful what utensils you use INSIDE the pan.
on December 23, 2016
This is the 2nd square springform pan that I bought. A square springform pan is useful when you have a larger number of people to serve; you can get more pieces from square springform pan than you can from a round springform (wedges). The itself pan is easy to clean, easy to use. But there's one thing about it that I don't like, and that's the non-stick coating. It comes off way too easily. I baked a cheesecake, and the recipe said to run a knife along the edges to loosen it from the sides. In retrospect, I probably should have used a plastic knife or silicone spatula, but instead I gently used a small metal spatula. That was enough to scratch (nick) the coating off in some places, and rust is already setting in (!!). Also, eventually the coating will flake off, so I probably have to cover the inside of the ring with parchment the next time I use the pan so the cake does not come in contact with the rusted/flaking parts. Trust me, I didn't gouge the pan... To me, the coating should be more adherent -- not come off so easily. That is the only reason for a lower rating.
