The decorated covered cake pan highlighted here is one example of a product that we manufacture in large quantities at NESCO / The Metal Ware Corporation. Measuring 14" in length x 9" in width x 2" in height, we pay detailed attention to its dimensions and wall thickness to ensure cakes, brownies and other items bake and rise evenly. Precise dimensional accuracy also ensures that the snap-on domed lid fits perfectly even after thousands of uses.

For maximum cost-effectiveness, we purchase food-grade aluminum in coil form to feed into our draw press. Primary manufacturing operations involve creating the blanks, drawing them to the precise depth, then bead forming the rolled edges. We closely monitor the process parameters and keep the precision tooling well-maintained to ensure accurate and repeatable results over long and continuous production runs. A three-stage industrial wash cleans all surfaces to ensure they are food-safe and that the lids are properly prepared to receive a baked on, high-gloss powder coated finish.

On our high-volume powder coating line, we use custom designed fixtures to ensure even coverage at precise thicknesses. Programmed control over cure time and temperature ensures a durable, richly colored finish. Finally, a UV stenciling process applies the graphically decorative design elements.

We manufacture these decorative covered cake pans at the rate of approximately 50,000 units annually. Inventory is kept at levels to meet forecasted demand, and our organized and flexible production process allows for quick-turnaround on re-orders.
