French pastry chefs rely on classic fluted pans like this one to create attractive tarts with tender golden crusts. The nonstick finish releases pastry intact. Heavy-gauge tinned steel promotes uniform baking. Removable bottom supports the baked crust while you slip off the pan's outer ring. Pan bottom also aids in transferring the tart to a plate or cake stand. Nonstick exterior finish simplifies cleanup. Pan is equally suited to preparing savory quiches. Made in France by a company that has produced quality bakeware since 1887.
