Tarts are one of my favorite things to bake, especially during the summer months. Tarts are pretty versatile and when filled with fresh fruit — they're serious crowd-pleasers. My bank account is also pleased with my love for tarts because tart pans are typically priced so well!
One tart pan that is priced well is the Fluted French Tart Pan From Williams Sonoma. A huge feature is the heavy-gauge tinned steel because it allows uniform baking, which is a must for any tart. The removable bottom is the most exciting feature because it allows you to remove the tart flawlessly from the pan. If you're not looking for a new tart pan, this can also be used to bake quiches.
The fluted tart pan is oven safe up to 425°F and should only be used with wood, rubber, silicone or other tools made from scratch safe materials! It's hand washable and should not be scrubbed or scratched. Even with that said, you really cannot beat the price and construction of this pan. It's one of my favorites and even when I bake one into oblivion — I can easily pick up another for next to nothing.
