Original Bundt Limited Edition Pan

Description (Brief)
Nordic Ware, a family-owned manufacturing firm in Minneapolis, Minnesota, was founded in 1946 by brothers Dave and Mark Dalquist, as “Plastics for Industry.” In 1950, the brothers bought Northland Aluminum Products, a small firm with a line of “Nordic Ware” products including griddles and steak platters. The same year, Dave Dalquist created a cast aluminum, fluted cake pan and trademarked it as the “Bundt” pan. The company continued to grow its product line to include specialty baking and cookware items, including the microwave turntable. Nordic Ware is notable due to its history of product innovation through engineering, and its continued production of cookware in the United States.
This Bundt pan was a limited edition version, produced for Nordic Ware’s sixtieth anniversary in 2006. This pan is made of heavy cast aluminum, is a 12-cup size, and has a silver, non-stick Teflon coating. The classic Bundt cake pan became very popular after the Tunnel of Fudge Bundt Cake won second-prize at the Annual Pillsbury Bake-Off in 1966.
