Mrs. Anderson's Non-stick Springform Pan with smooth base is perfect for baking creamy cheesecakes, flourless cake, and other delicate confections without them sticking. Crafted from professional-quality carbon steel with premium quick-release, non-stick coating that's PFOA free, FDA and European LFGB approved for added food safety. Heat is distributed evenly for uniform baking, from sides to the center. Specially designed as a 2-piece ensemble, the interlocking band hugs the base to form the sides of the pan and prevent leaks during the baking process. Once the cake is done and cooled, it's easy to spring the sides open with just a flick of the latch fastener and release the base.
