Vintage Nordic Ware Bundt Pan

VFish | Jun 25, 202101:50 PM     21

So, I found this old, heavy Nordic Ware bundt pan that I was going to chuck into the dumpster but hesitated because it is built well, but the coating is flaked off. I looked up on eBay to see what condition they are selling them, as I didn't think it was good enough for Goodwill. Lo and behold, people are buying chipped Nordic Ware bundts, paying anywhere from a few dollars to 20 something.

I took it home to clean up as there was some dried on grease. Some interior areas has a few pinhead size bubbles that can flake off with my fingernail.

Why would anyone use this pan? Wouldn't this flake off into the cake? I have some bundts but thinner, the only thing going for this is its thick mold but the coating is not good.

I don't know whether I should keep this or give it to Goodwill or estate sale or go ahead and toss it. It seems kind of a waste but I don't like this flaking coating. What would you do?
