Hello (again) Canada!

We already sell to Canadian customers from our website, but shipping is a little ridiculous; that’s just the way the postage is between the USPS and Canada Post.  But now, it looks like Amazon.com has automatically opted us in to selling on Amazon.ca from our US based inventory. Woo hoo!

You can find all of our active listings there, so enjoy, Canadian customers.

The bail handle pot

Bale handle pots are a favorite of mine.  The handle makes it very easy to transport a pot of boiling spaghetti water to the sink, for example.  I have always though they were rare, but there are over 40 of them for sale on eBay right now.

If you are a Revere Ware lover like I am, consider making one of these beauties part of your collection.  The only downside is that there are no replacement parts for the Bakelite part of the bail handle.  I have had it in my mind for a while to design a 3D printable model, but never seem to find the time.

The bail handle pots come in three sizes, 4, 6, and 8 quart.  I suspect the 6 quart is the most practical, but the 8 quart is pretty useful as well.

Of the eBay listings, I counted:

16 4 quart, average price $44
21 6 quart, average price $49
3 8 quart, average price $135

I suspect a few of the 6 quart models were actually 8 quart ones.  Here is a lovely Revere Ware add that shows all three sizes of the bail handle pot.

The bottom line is that it is a great time to add one of these to your collection, both from an availability and price perspective.

Revere Ware utensil hangers

I’ve seen the Revere Ware utensil hangers s from time to time but never really knew how they were properly used.  Just the name makes one thing of hanging spatulas and the like.

 

This particular listing shows the back of the box, which I haven’t seen before.

And an add I found shows what this looks like in practice.

Very nice. I’m tempted to put up a display like this in our guest room kitchenette.  You can find quite a few on eBay.
