Best of RevereWareParts blog – Using eBay searches to find rare items or get a deal

This post from January of 2018 is a good one as it outlines the value and mechanics of saves eBay searches.

I’ve got about 50 saves eBay searches personally.  For some rare collectible items, I’ve waited years to find what I was looking for.

I highly recommend using eBay saves searches to locate those hard-to-find items, or to wait for the deal of the century on more common items.


New old stock skillet egg poacher

You won’t find a better deal than this on a new old stock (an old item that has never been used) skillet with egg poacher inserts.  And it is a vintage era item to boot, with the thicker copper and stainless steel of the era.  Get it while you can!


Replacing a Revere Ware kettle

Revere Ware tea kettles have been off the market since 2018, when Corelle Inc. (now Corelle Instant Pot) discontinued the Revere Ware brand.

But, the market for used tea kettles is quite robust as the listings on eBay demonstrate.

(That’s our eBay Revere Ware listing helper site that categorizes all the Revere Ware listings on eBay for your convenience.)

There are over 1,200 listings for kettles on eBay, or about 8% of all Revere Ware listings there.

So if you need to replace your cherished Revere Ware kettle, pick up a used one; with such an abundance of listings, you can surely fine them for a reasonable price.


eBay: great deals on bale handle pots

These have always been a favorite of mine as they are iconic and handy; the bale handle makes it easy to pick them up off the stove and pour the contents out, like when straining spaghetti.  There are a couple of great deals on eBay right now (one and two).


eBay Revere Ware deal of the week – bale handle pot

Bale handle pots are nice, and they are vintage era so good quality.  This one on eBay with a shipped price of just over $50 is an awesome deal for a relatively rare items like this.

Importantly, it has the bale handle Bakelite and it is in good shape.

Don’t be too concerned about the dark stained inside bottom.

That is almost certainly burnt hard water deposits.  A good soak pure vinegar, with intermittent heating and scrubbing will get ride of it, then follow with a polish with Bar Keepers Friend.



Revere made that?

I’m often surprised at some of the things that I find that Revere manufacturing made.  Like this lovely earring holder I came across on eBay:

Sure enough, Revere:

With a wife and three daughters in the house, I couldn’t resist.  Shhhh!  I’ll give it to one of them as a surprise.


Full copper 14 cup percolator on eBay

It isn’t often I see Revere Ware pieces I haven’t seen before, especially gorgeous ones like this all copper percolator on eBay.

If you look more closely you can see it is copper plated, not solid copper, which makes sense.  But it is in new condition and would make a beautiful display piece.  The price can’t be beat at just a $99.99 starting bid.  I might just buy it myself. 🙂
