looking for a spring form (post #56325)

Does anyone know where I can find a spring form like the one in this picture? My daughters want to bake our favorite cake but we cannot seem to find a spring form with flat bottom and a hole in the middle.

I found a slightly different one from Kaiser, it has texture - but it is essentially like a tube pan in springform

Thanks, but the tube base is fluted, not flat like grandma's Springform in my picture.

Go to Amazon. com and look for Kaiser Bakeware 10-Inch Springform with Flat and Fluted Bases, or look for Kaiser 630830 La Forme Leakproof Springform with Two Bases 10-Inch.

Does it have to be springform, or could you use a 2 peice angel food cake pan.

I'd prefer straight sides, actually, but that's interesting.

I've seen angel food cake pans (2 piece) with straight sides.


It's the sprinform that will be hard to find. Of course you could use a regular deep springform pan and put something in it to make the hole.

I have one.  Fluted bottom that fits on the springform, just like your picture.  Straight sides.


I can't help though, as I have no idea where I got it, and it has not one marking on any piece of it.  BUT, you now know it is to be had.  


FOUND IT!  Pampered Chef Springform Pan Set


Edit:  Pampered chef has it but I know I didn't get it there.  I put "springform + fluted insert" into google search


Editing again:  I see others have already given you alternatives, I'd go with them instead of Pampered Chef as it is way expensive.


But, but, it's SUPPOSED to taste like that!

I have one too - it is pretty old and made in Germany.


I think it may have come from Williams Sonoma  back when it wasn't a chain, just Chuck Williams' shop. It probably wasn't even called WS then. Long time ago.

I've never seen anything like that. I searched some of my favorite esoteric online cooking stores, and I did not find anything like it.

I did find this, but it is not a springform: http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/detail.jsp?select=C80&byCategory=C137&id=5970

Take a look at this site and look at the heat difusers to see if that would work for you to punt.  I'd ask at a restaurant supply or if you have a favorite bakery, ask them where they may find them.  Even SweetCelebrations doesn't have anything that looks like this.

It's not aluminum, it's tin over steel. You can see that in the photo. Besides, aluminum is very rarely made into articulated (unique shapes, clasps etc) pans, even today, at least for domestic use. In restaurant use, depends on the bakery.

I'm used to seeing your posts on BT. Thanks for helping out here as well.

You wrote, "Yours is a vintage Ekcoloy Aluminum Springform Pan - Silver Beauty"
Actually, mine is about a century old and from Germany, but the Ekcoloy looks almost the same, just lacking the plain flat bottom piece.
The seller called it aluminum, but the picture was clearly of a tin-plated steel one.

Thanks for the e-bay Ekco link too. I checked again today and found an "Ekcoloy Silver Beauty T343-9" springform there for my daughter for $2 plus shipping.

Oh boo! I just got a reply that it was already sold.

Your pan is a very lovely antique, I have several of the three piece combination, from grandmothers and great-grandmother. They didn't always have the clip closure but for versatility in frugal times, they sold them as a set.
You have some contemporary choices, if you don't want to search out a matching collector version. You could be a tin-plated steel three piece springform set; it will probably have the dimpled based. Kaiser makes a springform with a smooth, high-tech finish. Both of these choices would have the spring-lock attached to the sides.
In commercial or French bakeware, you can get the sliding clip side rings but they don't have fitted bottoms. Chefs put them on sheet pans.

Hi, Bruce,
Failing all else, how about a regular springform with a tin can of appropriate size placed in the middle. Empty, of course. Or filled with pie weights if necessary to hold it in place.

Cheers,
