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).
