What a great story we received from a reader.
I graduated West Point in 1964. We were engaged that spring, and my future wife (who is from the Hudson Valley) drove to the factory outlet in Rome along with my Mother (who resided in Newburgh, NY) and her Mother to buy this set. We married in the fall and for the next 29 years traveled the world with the set. Our pots have been to Germany, New York, Oklahoma, North Carolina, Kansas, Belgium, Louisiana and Georgia. We kept the copper clean the whole time (polish after every use), and our two sons also polish their copper pieces. We used Twinkle until it was no longer available and Wrights since then.
We damaged our smallest pot — we left it on a hot stove until the handle melted off — and finally tossed it. We gave our square frying pan to someone in need just a few years ago. The tea pot handle broke and we did not know about your business so we tossed it.
The rest we are proud to have and use.
PS – we also have another set of items from New York. My wife’s twin brother gave us a set of Cutco knives and kitchen utensils (manufactured in Olean, NY) as a wedding gift. We still have all but one of the originals and have added several knives to the collection. Upstate New York rocks!
