Nordic Ware recently rolled out its new Charlotte bake pan to the independent gourmet housewares channel. The new pan is used to make Charlotte cakes, also called ice box cakes, and is designed to help the baker create the traditional a ladyfinger-style rim in an easier fashion, the company said.
Made from cast aluminum, the pan promotes even rising, uniform baking and a golden crust, the company said. The non-stick interior is also designed for easy release and quick cleanup, according to Nordic Ware.
The pan is oven safe up to 400°F, but consumers should use only wood, silicone, plastic or other nonmetallic utensils to avoid scratching the surface. The Charlotte bake pan is recommended to be hand-washed and dried thoroughly.
The company also recently released its Ultimate Bundt Cleaning Tool to help clean hard to reach places in detailed pans.
