Rare replacement parts

If you have a 3-quart Revere Ware tea kettle, our cap is said to work by some customers, and you can have a trigger we designed 3D printed, but you are out of luck if you need a new handle.

My 60 year old Dutch Oven. Use it all the time. For soups, pasta, roasts etc. Still in great shape.
