New Parts in the Works

We have just begun the process or getting a slew of new parts made, including the smallest vintage two-screw pan handle and handles for newer pots that are held on with a single rivet or screw through the metal spline (see below). Finally, we are investigating the feasibility of producing gaskets for the 1574 and 1576 4 and 6 quart pressure cookers.

Extreme Revere Ware Repair

I’ve never seen a Revere Ware pot damaged as badly as the one in this YouTube video:

The pot in question is a newer pot, with a thinner copper layer; I am shocked that he didn’t go through the copper layer into the stainless steel with all his grinding.

He goes further to demonstrate cleaning Revere Ware with Cameo copper cleaner and Cameo stainless steel cleaner.

I haven’t tried Cameo cleaners but I sure am going to.

More Ebay Trends

I’ve been reporting on the trend of Revere Ware products listed on Ebay for some time, and the trend has been slowly rising, meaning more and more Revere Ware cookware is listed on Ebay. The holidays showed in interesting phenomenon.

Ebay count

The large dip just before the holidays could mean a couple of things. Perhaps people were snapping up Revere Ware via buy-it-now or regular auctions (less relists) or perhaps people took a break from listing their cookware because they were otherwise consumed with the holidays.

Post-holidays, the upward trend in listings seems to have resumed. Perhaps the availability of replacement parts (from us) has made Revere Ware more valuable so more people are listing their old cookware. 🙂

Cast Iron

In addition to our very complete set of Revere Ware, we frequently use cast iron pans for cooking. Here is a quickie tutorial on how to resurrect an old rusty cast iron pan by removing the rust and then seasoning the pan.
