LOL - I'm guessing the bottom of your pan has a lip around it, and the bottom is slightly recessed, that is causing you problems? Turn the bottom upside-down when you assemble your pan and line it with parchment paper. This way you can slide it off without having to figure out how to pry it up over that "lip".

you know i yes it is but i have tried that and the parchment gets soggy and tears. i don't make the traditional graham cracker lead sinker bottom. i just grease and dust the bottom and sides of the pan with graham crumbs so i think thats why i have problems. where can i get those cardboard "rounds" that the store bought cheese cakes come on. maybe if i can get 9 in rounds they will work in my pan. i have gone to a resturant supply store and they don't sell them.

Well, for those 9-inch cardboard rounds - try a bakery that makes cakes, or the bakery in your grocery store if they bake cakes there. That is where I have gotten them in the past.

Try using waxed paper, and a few more crumbs on the bottom. Using a long metal spatula is helpful as well.

BTW, I have only used the cardboard rounds for finished cake, not baking.

yes they are usually used to frost finished cakes. people like my cheese cake because i don't go heavy on the crumbs. i have tried waxed also.

Allow the cake to cool completely!! Remove the spring form....Invert onto a plate or 9 in round...Apply a wee bit of heat to the bottom of the pan...Torch for a few seconds...remove pan bottom...invert to a 9 in. round.
