Large Bundt Pan with Enameled Interior?

My Mom has a large (15-cup) bundt pan from the '70's that's enameled on the interior (not a non-stick coating), but it's getting pretty beat up. Does anyone make that kind anymore?

I've found bundt pans that are uncoated cast aluminum, pans that are enameled on just the outside, and pans that are coated with non-stick stuff on the inside. I've also found little bundts (6 cup ones) that are enameled in and out. What I'd love to find is a large bundt pan (at least 12 cup capacity) that's enameled on the inside (I don't care if the outside is enameled or not). Something kind of heavy would be nice.

Any leads would be most appreciated.

Thanks,
ninrn

    1. Kaiser and Nordicware make what you are looking for. You can probably find them at Amazon.

      1. Happybaker, I saw these and a similar one by another co. on another website but it said the capacity is only 6 cups. I notice Amazon doesn't list a size though, so maybe this one is bigger. I'll contact them and find out.

        Candy, I'm pretty sure Nordicware and Kaiser only make the non-stick coated and plain aluminum interior ones now. They sell the large enameled Kaiser bundt in the UK, but not in the US.

        Thanks very much to both of you for your posts.

          You're welcome!

          The 8" is 6 cups, so I figured the 10" might be 8 - 10 cups? But definitely contact the company directly, they might have just what you want!

        2. ninrn, I just went down to the kitchen and poured water into the nice enameled-steel bundt pan here (my mother's, which I have yet to use). It's 10", like the one in the Amz link, and holds ten cups. I think it is actually a Zenker; the shape's identical, only the interior enamel is light colored while the outside is enameled black.

          I just got a set of two 5-cup mini-bundt pans, the Norpro cast aluminum, and if I ever make bundt cakes I imagine they'll be what I use. I'd be happy to send this one to you for the cost of shipping, if you have any trouble getting hold of one through commercial channels.

            Ellabee, what a nice offer. Thank you. The thing is, my Mom says all her recipes need the 12-or-more cup capacity. Thanks again, though. Very internet-neighborly of you!

            1. re: ninrn

              You're most welcome.

              There is a more limited range of offerings in the size your mother's recipes need, but if possible I'd go with something other than stoneware. It strikes me as heavier and more fragile, and much slower to cool, than most of the alternatives.

          2. Does anyone have any thoughts on how this stoneware kind would work? It's expensive and only holds 11-cups, but maybe...: http://www.amazon.com/Classics-Stonew...

            I'm not a baker, and I don't know if stoneware is a good material for this kind of cake pan.

              From what I can tell the stoneware is not glazed - and that could be a real problem for baking. Heck, they even include a tool for cleaning off food - which means it happens. Lots.

              Are you not wanting the non-stick coating because you are concerned it would wear off? Here a nice and heavy cast aluminum 12 cupper.

                Hasten to say that I"m not a baker either, but far better IMO would be the NordicWare classic bundt pan, nominal 15-cup capacity but 12-cup for cakes (to allow rising room).

                I'm sure you've run into it in your search, but if not: https://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/... (available from other sources as well)

                1. re: ellabee

                  Ellabee - I think the pan you linked is the same one I found at Amazon!

                  Great minds think alike : )

                  1. re: happybaker

                    I'm sure we're both great minds <g>, and that both the pans are pretty great bundt pans, but I believe they're different:

                    Your Amazon link is enameled steel by Zenker, from Bavaria. My mother's pan here is as well, only with a light-colored enamel on the interior.

                    My King Arthur link is cast aluminum with non-stick coating from NordicWare, US-made.

                    1. re: ellabee

                      The first pan you posted was different, the second pan you posted was definitely the same great cast aluminum classic bundt pan from Nordic Ware.

              2. Bakers probably know this info, but I found it helpful and enlightening -- a good run-down on tube vs. bundt pans: http://kitchenencounters.typepad.com/...

                1. Thanks everyone. I'm still waiting to hear back about the Zenker's capacity. If it's big enough, that's what I'll get. I wanted to avoid both the coatings and the aluminum, but maybe, since she doesn't bake that often anymore, the cast aluminum is the way to go. I appreciate all the advice.

                    Is there any special reason you are avoiding the cast aluminum? That is the classic/original style in which millions upon millions of bundt cakes were made. (My grandmother is responsible for a few hundred).

                  2. Finally found one that works at Cost Plus World Market. Interestingly, it's not on their website, only at stores. Nordicware, enameled inside and out. Most shocking: on sale for only $7.95.

                    Thanks again for all the suggestions.
