Does anyone have any tricks on how to keep the cheesecake crust from getting wet from the waterbath for the cheesecake. Ive tried heavy duty foil but it still seems to always get wet. I would really appreciate it if anyone had some useful trick up their sleeve. Thank You!

I would suggest not using a water bath. If you control the temperature properly your cheesecake should not crack. I gave up using a water bath a few years ago for the same reason and have not had issues.

No water bath either,my dad never used one and since I make his cheesecake I don't use one either.
Do you put the pan in the water?
I always thought the water went in a seperate pan on the bottom rack?
I really don't know though since I've never done one, just wondering.
