Nathaniel Waterman of Boston Massachusetts is acknowledged as having first patented in 1859 what is considered the quintessential gem muffin pan design, at the time calling it an "egg pan". The main features of the patent were (1) the individual cups with cut-outs between each to allow for the even circulation of heat around them, but (2) still being sufficiently connected together to promote conduction of heat through the iron. Multiple configurations of several shapes were devised, each with a unique number assigned that came to be employed as somewhat of a standard, even by other manufacturers who-- with or without authorization-- copied the designs.
