Bundt Pans: Did You Know?
You may be surprised to learn that the Bundt name is a trademark owned by Nordic Ware. Bundt pan popularity was launched in 1966 when a Bundt cake called “Tunnel of Fudge,” baked by Ella Helfrich, took second place at the annual Pillsbury Bake-Off, winning Ella $5000—not too shabby even today, but a real bundle of dough (pardon the expression) in 1966. Nordic Ware has now sold over 60 million Bundt forms, pretty impressive for a pan with a hole in it!

Nordic Ware’s Springform Pan
A key to success in your next savory quiche, creamy cheesecake or other fragile baking endeavor is the leak-proof, 9-inch diameter springform pan. The metal cooking bottom on this bakeware dish doubles as a serving tray, so once your recipe is finished baking all that’s left to do is unclasp the pan, remove the outside band and dig in! The nonstick surface along the wall of the dish lets you remove it from delicate food, rather than vice-versa. The option to leave your sweet or savory baked treat on the bottom metal plate eliminates the chance of harming the shape when transferring from pan to serving platter, but if you prefer a different presentation you can gently slide a treat off the tray onto the serving platter of your choice.
Belgian (Waffle) Nordic Ware? A Geographical Paradox
Cook’s Illustrated recommends this non-electric Belgian waffle maker iron. It heats up quickly and evenly, directly on your stove, and can be used on gas, ceramic, or electric stovetops. Since the waffle maker heats evenly, your waffles come out uniformly cooked. The nonstick surface lets your waffles release from the pan cleanly, leaving perfect pockets for melted butter and syrup. The slim design is a space saver, especially in a small home kitchen or in an RV—it takes up much less room to store than an electric waffle maker. The interlocking hinges allow the two sides to separate, making cleanup a breeze. If you’re looking for a waffle mix to enjoy with your new pan be sure to check out our Gourmet Waffle Mix.
The Scottish scone and cornbread bakeware dish allows you to make eight equally sized hearty wedges of your favorite scone, cornbread or other pastry recipe. Perhaps you’d like to make individual cobblers or pie slices; with this dish you can. As with most Nordic Ware products, this pan has a nonstick coating to help your wedges release easily from the pan. As a bonus, this pan can be used outdoors on a grill, as well as in an oven. Serve cornbread with chili during your next camping trip!
While all the bakeware shown above is nonstick, we recommend you coat each with shortening or Vegelene cooking spray before filling with batter to ensure the intricate details stay intact on your finished product. Hand washing your new pan will help extend its life for years.
