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.
Nordic Ware manufactured this stadium Bundt pan during the early 2000s as part of their Platinum Collection. Since 2000, Nordic Ware has expanded their market by producing heavy aluminum, specialized cake pans for upscale retailers, most notably Williams-Sonoma, while still making stamped aluminum favorites for mass-market retailers like Target and Kmart.
