Help! I have made several tarts and I can't seem ever to get my tart off of the metal flat plate that is part of the 2 piece pan. Is it mean't to stay on the metal? How do they serve tarts at cafes and such, what the heck! How does this piece of bakeware work?

In my experience, alex, it does stay on the bottom insert part of the pan. That may be why quite a few tart pans are sold. Folks have to buy new ones because they never got the bottom part returned after serving the tart at a get together, etc.

However, if you want to remove the tart from the bottom, you could line it with a piece of parchment paper before you add your tart ingredients. Then, you could slip a spatula or knife between the parchment and the bottom of the pan to remove the tart.

Place the tart in the pan on a hot towel or heating pad. The heat will soften/partially melt some of the butter/shortening in the crust and loosen it a little so you can slip a thin cake spatula in between the crust and pan bottom and slide it off.

Parchment will also work.

I grease the bottoms of my tart pans and I also use a thin icing spatula to remove tart from pan. They make tart pans now with a non stick coating they are dark colored like the non stick pans.

What exactly is a tart pan? Can I use a muffin pan instead?

flip it onto a plate so the base it showing, heat it fast with a blowtorch and remove the metal plate.
then flip it back onto whatever you wish to serve it on.

if you do it while it`s still hot out the oven, you may not even need to heat with a blowtorch, just 2 simple moves and it`s done :)

A tart pan is similar in size to a pie plate. The sides of the tart pan are pretty much straight up and down, almost at a 90 degree angle, and they are fluted / ruffled. The bottom section of the tart pan is removable (similar to a cheese cake pan, only there is not a release mechanism on a tart pan). Looking for a picture to post .... aha!
