About this product
Simply prepare your dough as usual, but then chill it in the refrigerator. We recommend overnight, but even just a couple of hours is sufficient. Once the dough is fully chilled, remove it from the refrigerator, roll it out to about 5mm in thickness, and use the tart ring to cut it to fit. You’ll have a golden, delicious crust in no time.
To help you bake golden, delicious baked goods, we worked with "l'Ecole du Grand Chocolat Valrhona" to design a tart ring that met the expectations of French masters, but also provided the usability today’s bakers expect and demand. Made from sturdy steel, this tart ring is perforated to help ensure even heat distribution and to allow steam to escape quickly. The result? Golden, delicious crusts for pies, tarts, and more!

Are your tart rings made in France?
Yes! They are made and assembled in our very own factory in France.
Which material are they made of?
They are made in stainless steel, that is of the highest quality available.
What are the holes for?
The holes allow the perfect heat conduction for your pie, tart, or other pastry, resulting in perfectly golden and crispy crust while keeping the inside soft and moist.
Do they need to be oiled before use?
You can use a tiny bit of oil or fat if you want but you don’t need to, since they are nonstick.
Can I use the tart rings on any baking surface?
You can use any type of baking sheet although we recommend using our specially conceived perforated silicon mat, in addition to our perforated aluminum baking sheet. You can also use a regular baking sheet.
Are the rings dishwasher safe?
Yes, they are!
What is the difference between Alchimy and Affinity, aren’t they both stainless steel?
Yes, both the Alchimy and Affinity lines are stainless steel cookware, but there are 2 main differences between the two. First, they are aesthetically different with Alchimy featuring a unique brushed exterior, while Affinity features the classic polished stainless steel exterior. The second (and biggest) difference is the construction. The Alchimy line features a 3-ply construction of 18/10 stainless steel, a heat conductive aluminum middle layer, and a durable and induction-compatible exterior, while the Affinity collections features a 5-ply construction made up of 3 layers of conductive aluminum sandwiched 2 layers of high-quality stainless steel, also induction-compatible.
How does multi-layer differ from an aluminum encapsulated base?
Stainless steel cookware with an aluminum encapsulated base conducts heat only throughout the bottom base of the utensil. With the Alchimy and Affinity collections, the multi-layer technology extend throughout the base as well as up the sides of the utensil, allowing for better heat conductivity and circulation, cutting down your cooking times and making your time in the kitchen even more efficient.
How do I keep my cookware looking clean and like-new
Cleaning your stainless steel cookware is easy – to start, our Alchimy and Affinity lines are dishwasher safe and of course can also be handwashed with dish soap and hot water. To remove any stuck or burnt-on food, you can soak the utensil in hot, soapy water and scrub it off with a kitchen sponge. For stubborn messes, you can boil some water and scrape off any stuck-on bits.
To keep your Alchimy and Affinity cookware looking like-new you can use a non-abrasive cleaner, like Bon Ami or Bar Keepers Friend for stain removal and keeping your cookware shiny. To restore the shine, you can also rub it gently with some baking soda and water!
Does stainless steel cookware have nonstick properties?
Depending on what you are cooking, food may stick to your stainless steel cookware if the temperature is either too hot or too cold, but when used correctly, stainless steel cookware will be your favorite in the kitchen. It might take some trial and error to figure out what works with your cooking style, but a good tip is to always pre-heat your pan.
