New Parts in the Works

We have just begun the process or getting a slew of new parts made, including the smallest vintage two-screw pan handle and handles for newer pots that are held on with a single rivet or screw through the metal spline (see below). Finally, we are investigating the feasibility of producing gaskets for the 1574 and 1576 4 and 6 quart pressure cookers.

    Can’t wait to get these in my hands. I literally have PILES of pans waiting for them!

    Will you ever be making replacement handles for the tea kettles? The little finger pull broke off of ours so that you can’t open the cap to pour out the water. It seems silly to buy a whole new tea kettle if we could simply replace a part.

      Parts are proving to take longer to develop than we had hoped, which has slowed down the consideration parts to develop above and beyond the current batch. We do plan on eventually looking into tea kettle parts but their development might go well into 2011.

      One short-term solution would be to find a replacement kettle on Ebay that is in bad shape but has good parts you can use as a replacement. You can find all tea kettle auctions conveniently on one page here. For instance, I was able to buy one that had a lot of crud burned on the outside but all the parts were in good shape and were very usable as replacements for another kettle.
