Customer Kathy sent us this picture of her handle.
It reminded me of how many people suffer with sub-standard handles because they love their Revere Ware so much, they refused to replace them, despite severely damaged or even missing Bakelite parts.
Welding on a new metal spline:
We’ve also gotten reports of people simply grabbing a bare metal spline with a pot holder or using pliers where the handle has come completely off the spline.
We’ve been selling parts now for 10 years. Before that, there was about a 25 year period where no replacement parts were available. People had a long time to get used to not being able to get replacement parts. Combined that with the fact that many of the Revere Ware generation are older, and not exactly internet savvy, we’ve probably reached just a fraction of the people that need our parts.
Revere Ware was sold from 1939 to 2018, almost 80 years. There have likely been 50-100 million people in this country that have used Revere Ware at some point during their lifetimes, and I would guess 10 million or more that continue to use their cookware. In the 10 years we’ve been selling our parts, we’ve sold to 40,000 customers. That means there are many millions of people still diligently using their Revere Ware, many of which are doing so with less than suitable Bakelite and other parts.
Please help us reach the people that need our parts. Help someone who doesn’t have access to the internet purchase parts. Tell your friends. If you come across a forum that is discussing Revere Ware and availability of parts, let them know about our parts and all of the information we’ve gathered. We need your help to keep this business going and help it reach the people that need it.
