Lakeland PushPan Loose Based 20cm Cake Tin - Round
Product number: 15773
If you can’t resist a baked cheesecake, but find it a hassle to foil-wrap a tin before placing it in a water bath, this 8" PushPan Loose-Based Cake Tin is the answer to your baking prayers. It’s completely watertight, so your mixture won’t leak out and water hasn’t got a hope of getting in, and the patented, push-out bottom means that getting your cheesecake out is child’s play.
The loose-based cake tin that doesn’t leak
If you haven’t yet made their acquaintance, we’d like to introduce you to PushPans. They’re the only loose-based cake tins we’ve ever come across that are completely watertight and leakproof, and it’s all thanks to the snugly fitting silicone seal around the edge of the base, which ensures that none of your mixture escapes and no liquid gets in. So you can cook loose batters without any leaks, bake a pudding or cheesecake in a water bath without having to wrap your tin in layer after layer of tin foil – and then remove your creations without having to turn your cake tin upside down, simply by pushing up the base to release the seal.
Patented silicone seal base
So why would you need a 100% watertight, loose-based cake tin? Firstly, let’s talk about putting things into the tin. The super-tight seal around the base ensures absolutely nothing leaks, even from the thinnest of cake, quiche and batter mixtures, which allows for so many more recipe choices and helps to keep your oven mess-free – and means you can use it just like you would a ‘normal’ cake tin with a solid base, if you want to.
And what about liquid on the outside of the cake pan? Have you ever cooked a baked cheesecake in a ‘bath’ of water, bain marie-style? If the answer’s yes, then you’ll no doubt have wrapped the outside of the cake pan in a couple of layers of foil so the water couldn’t make its way inside and ruin your cheesecake mix. The PushPan’s trusty seal eliminates any need for wrapping as it won’t let a drop of H20 in.
You won’t find any fiddly clips to contend with, and there’s no need to line a PushPan with greaseproof paper, so you won’t get any baked-in parchment wrinkles that might ruin the look of your finished bake – just grease with a little butter or fat to enhance the non-stick performance of the pan and to help the base push in and out more easily. And there are handy fill lines on the interior of each pan, giving the option of a shallow or deeper cake, or a perfectly measured-out multi-layered mousse.
Easy-release for perfect presentation
When it comes to presentation, the easy-release seal ensures your hard work isn’t undone at the final stage. Just pop your PushPan on top of a tall tin and push down firmly on either side of the collar – this will release the seal and raise up the base, with your perfectly presented cheesecake, sponge or savoury dish perched on top. The collar has no seams to leave unattractive lines in your cheesecakes, and the baked goods are released easily with perfect edges.
Evenly baked results
Made from heavy-gauge, silver anodised aluminium, PushPans offer even heat distribution with no hotspots, are oven safe to 230°C, freezer safe and metal utensil-friendly.
How to use
Before first use, wash and dry your PushPan, and grease the inside and base. Insert the base with the silicone seal at the bottom, and gently push all the way down until it sits evenly against the bottom of the collar with a snug fit. To serve your creation once it’s baked, just place the pan on a tall tin from your cupboard, push down on the top of the collar to release the seal, then slide your cake from the base onto a serving plate. To clean your PushPan, gently wash both pieces in warm, soapy water, rinse and dry.
Find the perfect PushPan
Round PushPans are available in either anodised aluminium or non-stick heavy-gauge steel in a range of sizes – perfect for large celebration cakes – and there’s also a square version and a flan tin in aluminium too. With use, the anodised aluminium pans will build up a patina that enhances their natural non-stick properties even further.
