What is a Good Sub for 8” Springform Pan?

What are some alternatives to using the stated 8” springform pan? I’m usually pretty good at spatial relations, but with one overhead shot of the finished cheesecake it’s difficult to tell how tall/deep it is. If I’m not interested in popping it out to display, would a 9” tart pan work? Or 9” pie pan? Or not deep enough?

Barry - another idea. If you're not interested in popping it out, and have a nice ceramic dish of similar volume, bake and then serve from that.

Correction. Don't bake. Prepare and serve.

Hi Barry! Do you have an 8-inch (or even 9-inch) cake pan? That’d be the best sub here. If you’re choosing between the tart pan or pie plate, I’d use whichever is taller so there’s room for the filling. Hope that helps!

Hi Erik. Thanks. One last question. How much salt in the crust? Salt is not in the ingredients list but is mentioned in the instructions. I’ll report back on the finished cheesecake! :)

Just a pinch!
