I put a cake cardboard in the bottom of my pan before I put the crust in. When it's baked, it lifts right out.

Oooh, fabulous idea, cheatize! I always use a spatula and very carefully and slowly loosen the cheesecake from the pan botton and slide it onto a plate. It's a bit easier when the cheesecake is very cold, but still dicey icon_smile.gif.

Another suggestion: Freeze the cheesecake for approximately 30 minutes. You don't need to cover it. Take it out of the freezer and place it a few inches above the stove burner on medium. Make a few swipes across. Remove the ring and lift off the cheesecake with a wide cake lifter. This is how I do it in the bakery. I use very expensive pans that produce a great bottom, so the cardboard would interfere. Also, the parchment on the bottom produces a slightly inferior crust in my experiments.

Fabulous idea! I must try this the next time I bake a cheesecake. Do you wrap the cardboard first, or just use it bare?
