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.

According to Buzzfeed, 30 years ago, everyone had Revere Ware in their kitchen

In this article from Buzzfeed lists “55 Things Literally Everyone Used To Have In Their Home 30 Years Ago That I Can Guarantee NO ONE Has Anymore”

Obviously the clickbait title is a little extreme.  And they missed the timeline on Revere Ware by a decade or two.  30 years ago, 1993, Revere Ware had already gone through two bankruptcies and was producing shoddy cookware in Korea and then China; they had long since lost their title as the cookware everyone wanted.

50 year ago, maybe …

Interestingly, many of the other items look far better suited to the 70’s than the 90’s.  Perhaps to the 20-something blogger that wrote the article, the 90’s don’t seem that different than the 70’s. 🙂

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!

Fun with AI

I decided to try out the new Microsoft Bing Image Creator to try and create some Revere Ware related images.

Revere Ware images much not be a very big part of it’s training model. I love in particular the double long handled pan (looks useful if not easy to bump into one of the handles) and the pan with the logo on the inside.

Again, doesn’t seem to really know what Revere Ware looks like.  It thinks it can throw the name on a kettle and it becomes Revere Ware.  It perhaps does at least know that Revere Ware is a historical brand, as the style of the kettles is not at all modern.

Absolutely no better.  🙂

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 revereware.org 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).

The Frankenpot

I’ve been corresponding with reader Andrew about a double boiler he picked up.

The bottom part is without any handles and has this stamp:

The Revere Copper & Brass Incorporated name was used in the late 1920’s to the late 1930’s I believe.  The top part says made in Korea.

Revere did at some point make double boilers that looked a lot like this, but the bottom had long and short handles on opposite sides.  My best guess here is that the bottom is a vintage storage container and the top is from the 1980’s or so, and they just happen to fit together.  The lid, who knows; it has a Phillips head screw holding the small knob on, which puts it as a more modern lid.

Can anyone shed any light on this apparent Frankenpot?
