Vintage Find: Spring Form Pan

 Do you remember my post about Timeless Spring Form Pans? How I was in love with idea of a pan with interchangeable bottoms, how I wondered if they still made them? I actually did do a search online to see if I could find one. No luck.  
Then Saturday on a whim we stopped at an estate sale and there in a kitchen cabinet was a Spring Form pan with interchangeable bottoms!! 
 I must admit it took me a few minutes to realize what I was looking at. The pan with the flat bottom was on one shelve and the tube bottom was on another shelve. I almost started dancing when I figured out I had found a treasure!
 With a little scouring, it is almost like new!
 A very ingenious design. This little clip holds it all together. Just hold the ends together and slide the clip down. 
Wa-la! Now I have an angel food cake pan! I love that now I don't have to have a huge pan I only use once a year wasting space in the cupboard.
I was so excited I had to try it out! Cherry Tea Cake. Yum!


  1. What a nifty idea! I love it when I find just what I was looking for at an estate sale.

    The cherry tea cake looks tasty. Maybe you could share the recipe? : )


  2. Now that's a clever idea! I don't think I've ever seen one with a tube in the center. All I find are flat bottoms. This would be a great piece to have. Congrats on the find!

  3. Yay for finding what you've been looking for! And I second the cherry tea cake request. :)

  4. I didn't even know they made things like that...awesome! So glad you found what you wanted. It would replace several pans for sure! You use the spring form without the angel food center for cheese cake too. What a space saver!
