I love to make desserts and this springform cake pan is perfect! It does not make my cakes or cheesecake stick at all and nothing leaks. I like how it came with the lid, you don't see that often. The lid has a very useful handle to help carry your cake when it might be a little too hot. The removable bottom is easy to come off and put back in. Material of it all seems very well made and sturdy to last quite some time.
