Question by Matty Cob: Will a glass pan affect baking a cheesecake?
I am planning on making a cheesecake with a recipe I retrieved from (Alton Brown). He used a 3×9 inch cake pan, but all I have is a 8x8x2.25 in glass (square) pan.

Besides affecting the shape, can I use the glass pan for the recipe?

If so, how will it affect the baking of the cheesecake?

Thanks for your help!

It will be fine, baking wise, but you should really use a spring form pan for cheesecake if you want it to look nice at all.
