Monday Must Have: Fat Daddio Tart Pans

Happy Monday!  After way too long a bit of time off from posting, I'm back with an AWESOME Monday Must Have--the Fat Daddio Oblong Tart Pan

Lately I have found that this tart pan is the perfect choice for summer fruit tarts and since it is finally showing signs of summer weather here in Oregon, I have plans to use this pan many times over the next couple of months.

You may remember seeing this fabulous pan from this post that showed a beautiful golden brown Gâteau Breton (pictured again for your viewing pleasure) from that first time using these AWESOME pans. 

Let me share FIVE reasons why I love this pan and how it made the Monday Must Have list:

1)  Unique tart pan shape--love, love, LOVE this shape.  I think any dessert looks great in this shape and even after the tart is cut into pieces, it still looks pretty.

2)  The Fat Daddio brand--this is a great brand and many of my professional bake ware (cake pans) have stood the test of time.

3)  The pans wash easily and the wear and tear on them is minimal.

4)  Easy dessert removal--even with all the fluted/grooved edges, the tarts or cakes come away from the pan easily, keeping the dessert intact.

5) Reasonable price point--I actually paid a few dollars more from a local shop, but I have since found them on for less. 

One last thought...

If you are thinking about buying one of these pans, I'd highly recommend buying two--because most tart recipes will yield two of these tart pans and then you will have an extra tart on hand, because the first one will be eaten quickly!
