    I am still trying to get a very nice looking cheesecake.....my sides look like they stuck on the pan a little. Some recipes say to grease the sides, wondering what to use. I thought butter would burn, dont know what the perfect cheesecake makers would use....thanks

    I don't see why you couldn't use butter, it shouldn't burn. Another alternative is to line the inside of the pan with a strip of parchment paper that is cut to fit - the parchment can be buttered or not (your preference).

    Make sure the cheesecake has been well chilled (at least 3 hours) before removing the springform pan ring/side. Carefully running a very thin knife blade around the inside of the pan to loosen the cake before removing the ring helps too.

    The easiest way to solve the problem is to use a recipe with a crust that goes up the sides of the pan. icon_wink.gif (My personal preference is a shortbread type crust, I never use a graham cracker crumb crust on my cheesecakes.)

    Thank you for the reply....i could use parchment paper but it would be hard to keep it in place when you pour in the batter. The reason i never greased the side as i thought the butter would mix in the batter. Between solving the crack problem ...i am trying to get a nice looking cheesecake. I dont like graham crusts either and usually dont use any crust at all.

    thank you for replying ....you learn alot from other people..
