Warranty on a Revere Ware refrigerator magnet?

My mother has had a Revere Ware skillet refrigerator magnet for years and when I started this business, I wanted one too. I dutifully found on on eBay and it has adorned our house ever since.

So when I came across a Revere Ware tea kettle magnet recently on eBay, I got a little excited.

25 year warranty?  Here is the back of that product card.

Wow, seems legitimate.  That’s the first warranty I’ve ever heard of on a refrigerator magnet.  25 years no less.

I suppose putting the warranty on there was good advertising, and very few were likely to actually try to make good on that claim.


Broken or ….

My 7 year old daughter likes to play a game called Broken or Not Broken, where she holds a stick, board, french fry, or other object and has us guess whether it is whole or not.  This eBay listing feels like a version of that game.

Well, is it or isn’t it a broken frying pan handle?  A close up of the handle seems to indicate it might not be broken.

It seems rather odd that the seller didn’t include a picture that shows the handle actually on the pan, and no mention of its removability in the listing itself.


Lost and lots of Revere Ware on eBay!

Our site that takes all the listings from eBay and classifies them to help you easily find anything Revere Ware related, is a labor of love and often requires coaxing to work properly.  Slight changes to the HTML structure of the eBay listing pages can break things.   Over the years we’ve had several occasions where the count we show on the home page broke and we weren’t collecting the total number of listings for a matter of weeks or months.

But despite the occasional inaccuracies, the overall trend is clear, especially as of late.

The climb in total Revere Ware related listings has been astounding, more than doubling to 8500 since October of last year.

Now more than ever, you can probably find what you are looking for Revere Ware-wise on eBay.



Mixing bowl-a-rama

We get a lot of request for the Revere Ware mixing bowl plastic covers.  There are some seemingly suitable alternatives, but no real replacement for the originals.  So it might interest some readers to know that there are some new sets of bowls and lids available on eBay, three to be exact. Click on the images below to go to the auctions.



A lot of interesting replacement parts on eBay recently

I’ve seen an inordinate amount of hard-to-find replacement parts on eBay recently.

Percolator parts

A customer contacted us looking for the spreader for the percolator basket.  In the past I’ve seen complete baskets and stem sets on a couple of occasions but that’s about it.  This week there were two or three of that particular part available.   In fact, on seller was selling all the parts of a percolator.

Older handles

There have been quite a few of the older handles used in the first few years of Revere Ware (for example here and here and here).

3 1/2 quart kettle handle

These come up from time to time and there is now.

Original glass percolator knobs

While we sell a suitable replacement, for those looking for the completely original look, there are a bunch of these (here, here, here, and here) on eBay right now.

Pressure cooker handles

These are probably off a used units.  For those looking for replacement Bakelite for the 4 quart pressure cooker, there are two sets available right now (one, two).

4 qt pressure cooker over pressure plug

Unless you steal one from another working pressure cooker, these are unobtanium.  But there is one (appears used) for sale on eBay.

The point is, if you keep looking, you can probably eventually find what you need for your Revere Ware on eBay.



Revere Ware roaster

I came across this on eBay recently and I just love the utility of it.

With deep straight sides and a dome lid, it is seems pretty useful.  I wish they made these in the vintage era.
