Nordic Ware Kitchenware Products

Nordic Ware is a family-owned, American manufacturer of kitchenware products which was founded in 1946. This company has marketed an extensive line of quality cookware, bakeware, microwave and barbecue products. Yet, they are best known for their Bundt Pans – the founder of Nordic Ware {David Dalquist} invented the first Bundt Pan in 1950! Impressive, eh? Now, the company turns out nearly 30,000 Bundt pans a day. So, if you are looking for quality, long-lasting and time-cherished cookware and pans – now you know where to go!

When it comes to Bundt Pans, there is the traditional pan, but Nordic Ware actually has over 50 different shapes of bundt pans. When offered the chance to review Nordic Ware products, though there is a ton of cookware and bakeware to choose from – I had to test out one of these signature pans. Curiosity got to me, and {confession} I’ve never owned a Bundt Pan before. Since I have 3 princesses and really like to make original and outstanding cakes, I chose the Pro Cast Castle Bundt Pan.
It’s one heavy pan, so expense on quality is spared at all! It’s made of cast aluminum and is nonstick coated for quick release and easy cleanup. Since I was new to Bundt Cake baking, I scoured the internet for recipes to try and I don’t think I chose a very good one for my initial try. I always cook my cakes for less time than it says, to prevent dryness. Yet, with this pan, you need a firm and properly-baked cake for it to hold shape. So, my first attempt was delicious and looked great, but I am a perfectionist and I knew I could do better. Even so, it did come out of the pan easily and it was easier than you’d think to clean up. There are a lot of levels and corners to the inside, yet it cleaned up very quickly. So, that scores bonus points for me. I did try a different recipe in the pan a second time, and it turned out much better. The Nordic Ware site has featured recipes, so I’m going to stick with their Bundt Cake Recipes from now on – they would know, right? I also got to try the Zoo Friends Pancake Pan, and chose this because we always have pancake brunches on weekends. Each circle has a shape of the animal {giraffe, monkey, lion, elephant, hippo, rhinoceros and alligator shapes} which is imprinted on the pancake when it cooks. Again, this is solid bakeware, not light and fragile at all. I like it because it’s used right on the stovetop, and cleans up so nicely. One tip is that you have to cook the pancake completely on one side before you flip it with a fork {to prevent it from running}. Yet, it works great and the kids just adore it! We use it very often!

  12. I remember making Bundt cakes as a kid with my mom. There were so many recipe styles you could get including one that had pudding inside, then you finished the top with icing sugar or glaze that came in the mix.
    I haven’t seen the mixes anywhere in years, so I think if you were to get a Bundt pan you need a few of the Bundt mixes and maybe the Cake Topper too as no regular one would fit over it!

  13. The Creme Filled Wafer Cake Pan Set definitely catches my eye! I’m imagining a huge birthday ice cream sandwich right now!
