The 10 Best Springform Pans To Add to Your Kitchen in 2022

If you’ve ever found a recipe that requires a springform pan, then had to do a Google search to know what that is, you’re not alone. Springform pans are not a piece of cookware that would usually be on the list of most essential kitchen tools. Nevertheless, they are quite nice to have when making certain dishes, especially desserts like cheesecake or savory casseroles like a chicken pot pie.

Unlike traditional baking pans, springform pans have a band around the outside that unlatches, allowing your baked good to remain on a plate to be served. You can cut a perfect slice and leave the rest to be admired in all its glory. If you’re a type-A sort of guy who needs perfection on all levels, you’ll need a springform pan if you plan on doing any serious baking. Like every other piece of cookware, there are a lot of different brands to sort through. We’ve come up with a list of the best springform pans to buy for your cookware collection.

In professional kitchens, you see a lot of silicone cookware, and for a good reason. Silicone is the most nonstick material out there. Cooking with silicone takes some practice, so don’t give up after the first try if your cake isn’t perfect. This Teeo Silicon springform pan will yield some delicious dishes after you get the hang of it. An added plus is the glass bottom that won’t scratch like a nonstick metal one will.

Tips on Taking Care of Springform Pans

Before you buy one though, there are some things you should know.

  • All of these pans are nonstick, and most say they are dishwasher safe. Never put nonstick cookware in the dishwasher (except for silicone). It degrades the coating over time.
  • Many springform pans claim to be leakproof. It’s hard to rate which ones actually stand up to this claim. Many times leaks come down to user error, or it’s a one-off production flaw. If your pan consistently leaks, you don’t have to throw it out. The problem can be solved by using parchment paper or foil.
  • Always be careful not to scratch the nonstick coating of the bottom of the pan when slicing into your cake, quiche, or casserole. Always use the proper serving utensils.

The 7 best vegan wines to add your rack
Each of these delicious wines are completely vegan
Red wine pouring into a glass

When most people think about the vegan diet, they’re usually well aware that vegans can’t eat animal products like meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy products. You may even know that some vegans also avoid honey because the commercial honey production process can be harmful to the health of the bees. But did you know that many wines are also not vegan?
Although the basic ingredients in wine are vegan by nature -- as grape juice and yeast are not animal products -- the actual process is to produce and bottle wine often involves the use of animal ingredients called fining agents. Essentially, unless a batch of wine is allowed to sit for quite a long time, it will contain sediment from the grapes. Because it’s in the best interest of commercial wineries to bottle the wine as soon as it’s ready to free up the barrel, the wine often doesn’t have as long to settle.

Therefore, to hasten the process, winemakers often use fining agents, which are sticky substances that adhere to particulates in the wine, so they can then be filtered out. The final filtering process does remove nearly all of the fining agents, but the agents are not only animal products themselves (such as isinglass from fish bladders, gelatin from hooves, casein, and albumin from egg whites), but are also usually produced by industries that exploit animals.
Fortunately, there are several great winemakers that use vegan fining agents or give the wine ample time to settle, negating the need for fining agents altogether. Keep reading for the best vegan wines and make your next pour a vegan wine you can feel good about enjoying.

The 10 best canned sardines to elevate your summer cooking
Canned sardines are a great way to make a good recipe great
Sardines

Luckily for sardines, bigger isn’t always better. These tiny but mighty fish are packed with nutritional goodness and full of complex flavor. Unlike anchovies, their teeny counterparts, sardines have a far milder, rounder, less "fishy" flavor. Briny and complex, these little guys pack a delicious punch of salty, savory bite when used in a dish properly. The best canned sardines are even incredible alone, or when simply topped on toast, served with lemon and fresh herbs.

Additionally, sardines in a can are a sustainable source of protein for pescatarians, keto fans, and foodies looking for a punchy new ingredient. They’re rich in calcium, iron, vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids. But, unlike larger species, sardines don’t contain high levels of contaminants like mercury that could compromise your health.
