Our U.S Factory

Our U.S Factory

Over 300 products proudly made in our Minneapolis US Factory


We’ve manufactured Nordic Ware products in Minneapolis, Minnesota for over 75 years. Founded by H. David and Dorothy Dalquist in 1946, the company is a multi-generational family-owned and operated business. We are leaders in our industry, and our extensive lines of American-made cookware, bakeware, grillware, and microwave accessories enjoy distribution across North America and around the globe.

Consumers may know us best as the producers of the most highly rated baking sheets in the world, the developers of the first microwave oven turntable, or the creators of the iconic Bundt® Pan, but they also recognize Nordic Ware as a broad-based kitchenware brand that consistently represents innovative design, heirloom quality, and long-term value. Paired with excellent customer service and a commitment to integrity in every facet of our business, it’s no wonder consumers place their trust in us. We’ve provided American-made kitchenware to homes and commercial kitchens for a very long time, and we always strive to meet or exceed the expectations of the bakers and cooks who rely on our products.


Made in America means more than where we manufacture our kitchenware. It signifies a deep-rooted commitment to providing American jobs that support families and their communities. American-made products come with the guarantee that strict U.S. standards are met. From cleaner manufacturing practices to health and safety regulations to fair wages and compensation, American-made goods are a responsible, healthy, and environmentally friendly choice for consumers. We work with North American vendors for most of our supply needs too, which is ecologically sound because components can travel much shorter distances. While none of this changes the reality that people want to buy goods costing the least amount of money, more and more conscientious consumers understand the important benefits of buying American.


Everything necessary to produce our signature products happens in one place- from ideation, design, and product development to transforming raw materials into finished, packaged goods. This is most unusual in today’s world. We provide jobs for hundreds of people in America at a time when most manufacturers in our industry have moved overseas. Because we monitor the process from start to finish, we know what goes into everything we make. Our factory is a fascinating amalgamation of craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology. When products leave our facility, we are confident they will enhance the lives of others and stand the test of time. We who work at the company use and enjoy Nordic Ware products in our own homes, and we take a great deal of pride in what we produce for the world.
