Lékué Round Silicone Springform Pan

Posted on

Round Springform

Springform pans are cake pans with removable sides, designed to make it easy to remove your baked goods without having to flip the pan upside down and pop them out. They’re typically needed for cheesecakes and other relatively delicate baked goods that need gentle handling to stay in one piece. Like other bakeware, springform pans are typically made of metal with metal sides – but this Lékué Round Silicone Springform Pan is breaking with tradition with an unusual silicone side design.

The pan has a sturdy ceramic base and a removable silicone ring that makes up the sides of the pan. The silicone is able to keep its shape without bending because of the sturdy base, so the pan can be used for cheesecakes and anything else that can be baked in a traditional springform pan. The advantage to the silicone is that nothing is going to stick to its surface, so even a very soft cheesecake or flourless chocolate torte will release easily. Silicone is both oven and freezer safe, so this pan can also be used to shape frozen desserts. The ceramic base is much more attractive than the standard metal bases found on most pans and can double as a serving dish, too.

    These are really amazing. I got one for a pretty decent price of $9. I love the glass bottom for serving vs. the bumpy bottom of most springform pans not to mention getting your pan scratched when the cake is being cut. I usually use a foil lining to get it out more easily and have it off the bottom to transport it. The glass works and looks beautiful and the silicone sides do a great job as well. Easy to get on and off. My only “complaint” is the floppy sides when removing it from the oven. I usually bake it on a cookie sheet to avoid damaging the sides of a tender cake or cheesecake with the sides moving around on me. Other than that, it is fantastic. I love how easy the clean-up is too in the dishwasher. Great one to promote!

    This pan does have the advantages mentioned above, but beware–it is not leakproof; that is, it will not keep water out when baking in a water bath. Other than that, it’s great.
