Choosing a tart pan

thequietlibrarian | Mar 12, 201811:55 AM     11

I am just delving into the world of baking pies and tarts at home, and I am looking for tart pan recommendations. Sur La Table carries Gobel tinned pans that have gotten good reviews online, but when I went to check them out in-store I found that they have surprisingly sharp edges. This was a deal-breaker as I do a lot of baking with my young son and want him to be able to safely handle any bakeware we use. Sur La Table also carries Gobel nonstick tart pans, but they were twice as expensive and I'm generally averse to nonstick.

Can anyone recommend another good tart pan? I'm looking for one with a removable base and, obviously, not-so-sharp edges.

Also, what size(s) should I get? I've read that 9 in is standard for tarts, but 9.5 in seems more common when I shop around. Does that half inch make any difference with the actual bake?

Thank you!
