These are replacement handles for vintage era Revere Ware pots and Dutch ovens (i.e. the ones with two screws per handle). Please use the information below and the pictures to make sure they will fit your pot before you buy. These parts are newly
manufactured by reverewareparts.com and are made to look and work just like original Revere Ware pot handles.
Material: Bakelite, stainless steel
Includes: Each handle includes two handle halves + four screws. Each order includes two handles, enough for one pot
Measurements: 3.33 in (85 mm) long, 0.68 in (17 mm) thick, holes are 1.5 in (38 mm) apart on center
Fits: Vintage era pots and Dutch ovens. If your pot handles look like these, they should fit. See the product pictures for examples of the bracket this fit on as well as the pots.
Replaces: The original Revere part number for this replacement handle was 628.
The screws included with these handles are Phillips head, not slotted like the original Revere Ware pot handle screws were. Because the original slot head screws strip very easily, we consider this an improvement.
These handles have a matte finish, not a glossy one like the other Bakelite parts we sell. In our experience, some original pot handles had a glossy finish and some had a matte finish. We chose to go with the matte finish to provide a better grip.
Because Bakelite is somewhat brittle, over tightening can cause the Bakelite to crack or the screw inserts to pull out.
It is generally not a good idea to put Bakelite parts in the oven; it can make them dull or in some cases crack. We do not offer our Bakelite parts as oven-safe.
It is generally not a good idea to put Bakelite parts in the dishwasher; the soap will eventually dull and dry out the surface of the Bakelite. We do not offer our Bakelite parts as dishwasher-safe.
When you screw these on, if the smaller piece seems to not be on quite all the way, unscrew both screws a little, wiggle the handle to seat the handle better, and screw the handle tight again.
