Extreme Revere Ware Repair

I’ve never seen a Revere Ware pot damaged as badly as the one in this YouTube video:

The pot in question is a newer pot, with a thinner copper layer; I am shocked that he didn’t go through the copper layer into the stainless steel with all his grinding.

He goes further to demonstrate cleaning Revere Ware with Cameo copper cleaner and Cameo stainless steel cleaner.

I haven’t tried Cameo cleaners but I sure am going to.


More Ebay Trends

I’ve been reporting on the trend of Revere Ware products listed on Ebay for some time, and the trend has been slowly rising, meaning more and more Revere Ware cookware is listed on Ebay. The holidays showed in interesting phenomenon.

Ebay count

The large dip just before the holidays could mean a couple of things. Perhaps people were snapping up Revere Ware via buy-it-now or regular auctions (less relists) or perhaps people took a break from listing their cookware because they were otherwise consumed with the holidays.

Post-holidays, the upward trend in listings seems to have resumed. Perhaps the availability of replacement parts (from us) has made Revere Ware more valuable so more people are listing their old cookware. 🙂


Cast Iron

In addition to our very complete set of Revere Ware, we frequently use cast iron pans for cooking. Here is a quickie tutorial on how to resurrect an old rusty cast iron pan by removing the rust and then seasoning the pan.


People Sure Love Their Revere Ware

This picture from an auction on Ebay shows just what lengths some people will go through to keep using their Revere Ware, even in the absence of replacement parts. And this just happens to be one of the types of handles we sell. 🙂


Proper Cooking Temperature

While scrubbing the inside of my Revere Ware skillets with a green scrubbing pad doesn’t worry me too much, it can be a pain. The best way to avoid this is to find the best temperature for cooking food without it sticking to the pan, handily outlined in this pan preheating tutorial.


The Revere Ware Community

We sell a fair amount of our parts through our website and Ebay, so Revere Ware fans are clearly online, but how Internet savvy are they?

Sadly, not that Internet savvy. Seems nobody is talking about Revere Ware on Twitter and Facebook has a sum total of zero groups related to Revere Ware.


Ebay Trends

Since I first reported the trends I’ve been following of Revere Ware items for sale on Ebay, the trend has changed from flat to clearly rising. Since we don’t have multiple years of data to look at (yet), it is impossible to speculate whether this is a yearly cyclical trend or a general upward trend.

Repairing Lids

If you have a lid that the screw stud has broken off of (which can happen if it rusts), we’ve added some simple directions for repairing the lids and adding a screw. Revere Ware lid knobs use an 8-32 machine screw thread.

Revere Ware Trends

The graph below represents the frequency of searches for “revere ware” on Google over about the last three years.

Google Trends

There is definitely a serious bump in searches for Revere Ware around the holidays; I am looking forward to seeing what that does to our sales. But the main point is that the frequency in searches for Revere Ware appears to be slowly dropping over time. This means that it is more important than ever to preserve the Revere Ware heritage and history, such as what we do here in making old manuals and other useful Revere Ware information available to anyone that might be looking for it.

But the other point we might infer from this graph is that less people are searching for Revere Ware information because that information is harder and harder to find. Our sales continue to grow at about 20-30% a months I am convinced because more people are able to find us, not because more people are interested in replacement parts. This is where we ask for your help. The majority of our traffic comes from blogs and other discussions where people are discussing Revere Ware, and someone posts a link to our site. You can help people find not only the useful information we provide but the parts we sell by linking to our site wherever you can.
