Professional Bakers Like It

I found that people who own retail bakeries and bake for a living liked this pan. I like to hear from the experts in addition to the average home baker like myself.  People who do something for a living often have a different perspective than those of us who bake for our families and friends.  I found this to be true with professional bakers who used this Nordic Ware Leakproof Springform Pan.  One baker commented that because time is money, she liked  this springform pan because it was the easiest and quickest of all of her springform pans put together. That baker replaced all of her existing springform pans with these Nordic Ware Pans.

Is It Really Leak-Proof?

The biggest selling point of this Nordic Ware Leakproof Springform Pan is that it is leak-proof.  I wanted to look into this in-depth and see if this was true.  I found the results interesting because on the one hand yes, it is leak-proof as far as not letting material like batter spill out.  However, it will let water in if you need to cook something in a water bath. One customer explained that a perfectly cooked cheesecake should be cooked with the pan surrounded by water.  Unfortunately, this pan did let water in, so she needed to wrap the whole thing in foil before baking anything in a water bath.

Cools Faster Than Traditional Pans

Some people who used this springform pan, also used it for cooking and baking foods that didn't require a springform type of pan. They found that springform pans allow dishes to cool faster when out of the oven.  They also were very happy with this particular brand for the cool-fast quality it exhibits.

Can Be Used In a Pressure Cooker

Some bakers liked the fact that this 9-inch Nordic Ware Leakproof Springform Pan fit nicely in their pressure cookers.  People liked how it cooked cheesecakes mostly in their pressure cookers. The size and nonstick quality was highly praised by customers.

Works Great In Instant Pots

If you have a 6-quart instant pot, you may want to try this springform pan in it.  People found that it not only fit perfectly with some room to spare, but that it cooked up great cheesecakes.  Bakers advised that once you try the Nordic Ware Leakproof Springform Pan in an instant pot, you will never go back to cooking cheesecakes in an oven water bath.

Easy Release and Easy Cleanup

The Nordic Ware Leakproof Springform Pan scored high praises with customers for its ability to release foods easily.  It also was highly praised for easy cleanup.  Some people simply rinsed, wiped, rinsed, and dried this pan.  While others washed with hot soapy water, rinsed, and dried.  Both techniques worked well for cleaning this springform pan.

Hand-wash Only

Make sure to follow the directions and only hand-wash this springform pan.  One customer explained her experience with putting it in the dishwasher.  Not only did the buckle come off, but it also rusted around the snap area.  The Nordic Ware Leakproof Springform Pan is definitely for hand-wash only.

My Conclusion 

The Nordic Ware Leakproof Springform Pan scored well with customers.  It is leak-proof as far as not spilling batter and food goods out.  However, it will let in a bit of water if you use it for a water bath.  People who cooked cheesecakes in their oven in a water bath, advised covering the pan with aluminum foil first.  This pan will work well in both a pressure cooker and instant pot.  This pan was highly praised for its easy release and easy cleanup abilities. Be aware that this pan is hand-wash only, so don't plan on putting it in your dishwasher. Based on feedback from professional bakers as well as home bakers, the Nordic Ware Leakproof Springform Pan is a quality springform pan that does its job well.
