There is an amazing variety of cake pans available these days, but who has room in their cabinets for all those different options? With the Bundt Fancy Springform Pan with Two Bottoms from Nordic Ware, that question is a little less of an issue. The pan uses a typical springform ring but allows you to easily switch between a flat bottom with a waffle pattern--ideal for cheesecakes, layer cakes, tarts and more--and a fluted tube bottom--which works well for Bundt cakes. The ring is 9 inches, and will work with any recipe that is meant for a 9-inch pan. The pan's parts are made of aluminized steel and are resistant to both rust and warping.
The Bundt Fancy Springform Pan with Two Bottoms seals tightly as you change out bottoms. Like other springform pans, you do not need to worry about the pan leaking and making a mess in your oven. Each of the three parts also has a nonstick finish so they release cakes and other treats easily. The nonstick finish also simplifies cleanup: the pan should only be washed by hand, preferably with mild detergent. The pan is $18.
