This pan can have minor leaks depending on what you are baking. If you have a thin batter or are going to be putting it in a water bath, it's best to put aluminum foil around the pan first. Water can leak in on your cheesecakes and other desserts if placed in a water bath. This is an issue that all springform pans have to contend with.
Ease of Cleaning
Some customers found that this pan was hard to clean around the little groove where the metal seam meets. One person used a toothpick to get that area clean. Other than that area, this pan cleans up easily. Make sure to hand wash it and not put it in the dishwasher. Also use normal precautions as you would with any non-stick finished pan.
Be careful when handling this springform pan, as it does have some rough edges. I'm going to quote a customer who explained the problem with the edges. She reported,
"I have always been completely satisfied with the Wilton products I've purchased previously. They are usually top quality in how they are manufactured and perform wonderfully. However, this springform pan was definitely not up to their normal quality and I was quite disappointed. The edges were rough and there was extra metal around the ridge. There were also two 'cut-out' grooves on the bottom-they likely serve some function, but I couldn't figure out what. This was bought as a gift for my mother, and when she took it out of the package she almost cut her fingers on the rough edges. It seemed likely that this pan would end up cutting fingers and snagging dishrags so I returned it. I will still recommend Wilton products in general, but not this springform pan."
Make Sure To Dry After Each Use To Prevent Rust
This pan, along with other springform pans I've reviewed, will rust if they are not dried well after each use. Make sure to take a clean and dry towel and blot dry all areas were water could be trapped. The inner and outer sections should be dried separately. It's a good idea to let it air dry after towel drying to make sure that all the water is off of the pan.
Works Well With Air Fryers and Pressure Cookers
The Wilton Excelle Elite 6 x 2-3/4 Inch Springform Pan fits in most air fryers perfectly. One person recommended to cover the top with aluminum foil to deflect the air blowing down. It also works well with most pressure cookers. One customer happily reported that she can bake cheesecakes in 17 minutes in her pressure cooker with the help of this springform pan.
If you are wanting a small-sized pan, then you might really like the 6 x 2-3/4 inch dimensions. The word "cute" size just kept coming up over and over again. This is a also a great size if you want to make cake layers. Another good thing about the small size is it works great if you have to make multiple cakes. One lady had to help her niece make 9 cheesecakes for a school experiment. They had to document their results. She was thrilled with the small size, since she had to make so many. The cheesecakes turned out great, by the way, without any leakage during cooking.
The Wilton Excelle Elite 6 x 2-3/4 Inch Springform Pan is a small springform pan that works well for mini cheesecakes or layered cakes. It works well in most air fryers, pressure cookers, and Instant Pots. This springform pan can leak a bit depending on what and how you are cooking with it. If you will be putting it in a water bath, it's best to use aluminum foil to cover the pan so that water doesn't seap in. Make sure to only hand wash this springform pan. Towel dry and then allow it to air dry completely to prevent rust. I hope that my review of the Wilton Excelle Elite 6 2-3/4 Springform Pan helps you go about purchasing a springform pan in the future.
