Though no springform pan is entirely leakproof, the Farberware Nonstick Bakeware 9-Inch Springform Pan was closer to watertight than most others we tested. It has a nonstick coating that releases cakes and cheesecakes cleanly, and in our tests it didn’t overbake cakes the way many of its competitors did.
The Cuisinart 9-Inch Chef’s Classic Nonstick Pan is quite similar to the Farberware pan. It’s about the same shape and weight as the Farberware pan, and it also has a nonstick coating that released cleanly. This pan isn’t as highly rated on Amazon as the Farberware, and it sounds like some people have experienced more leaking than I did (which was none), but it’s the best alternative for the price (around $16).
