The Best Bundt Pan

After spending 11 hours researching and testing four bundt pans, we found a clear winner: the Nordic Ware Platinum Collection Original 10- to 15-Cup Bundt Pan (for other choices, also see our guides to cake pans and springform pans). It’s made of cast aluminum, so it’s thick and sturdy but not too heavy, and it has a nonstick coating that allows cakes to come out cleanly even from tight crevices.

The shape of the Nordic Ware Platinum Collection Bundt Pan is beautifully defined, with ridges that are taller and sharper than on any other pan in our test group, and it will bake cakes to a perfectly even golden brown. Nordic Ware is the original maker of the bundt pan, and the company still holds the registered trademark on the name, so it stands to reason that it would be the standard bearer in quality. This bundt pan is a solidly made classic that performs head and shoulders above the competition.

If you’re looking for a bundt pan that costs a little less, we recommend the Anolon Advanced Nonstick Bakeware 9.5” Fluted Mold. The ridges are relatively defined, the nonstick coating releases easily, and it was the only other pan we tested to bake cake to an even brown. The silicone-padded handles are easy to grab and it’s formed out of a heavy enough gauge metal (carbon steel).
