Rosie Riveter: I bought two of these to make ice cream cakes and they performed wonderfully. I lined the bottoms of the pans with parchment paper before adding the crust then lined the sides with parchment paper before adding the filling, which made removal of the ring pan much easier and provided a buffer between the nonstick coating and the filling (I will do that when I make cheesecakes in these as well - and see how it works). The combination of the nonstick coating and parchment meant that the cakes came out easily and the parchment was removed from the bottom of the cakes by simply using a spatula run around between the parchment and the bottom of the pan and gently pulling the paper out. No problems. I did notice that in the 10 minute thawing period some of the chocolate syrup used between layers (that won't freeze and stays liquid) began to leak, but it did not leak in the freezer or cause problems... so as long as your mixture's consistency is not too thin these should not leak. For more liquid "no-bake" cakes - assemblies that never hit the oven - I would recommend lining the pan with plastic wrap. I haven't tried that but have seen various recipes that suggest that for easy removal of the finished cake.
Ryan: Good buy!
Sev Johansson: The best, as recommended by America's Test Kitchen. Can't disagree. Makes great cheesecakes! Cleans easily and is a great value.
Sharmaly: Enough said. The cheesecake batter doesn't leak out but water does, which means that water also enters the pan when using it in a pressure cooker to make cheesecake. The cheesecake turns out fine but the crust ends up being wet. I expected more from this brand even after reading previous reviews.
sheila j eakin: This arrived bent out of round and the lip appeared to be manufactured wrong as it was turned up on one side. Had to send back. Asked for an exchange only because it was a gift and had it shipped to the person. Hope the second product is better. It appeared to be a "second" and not first run quality.
