The Galaxy line featured stainless steel construction with a bonded aluminum lining. The bakelite handles were changed from two piece to one, and the thickness of utensil walls and copper cladding were reduced. A good rule of thumb is knowing all lids and utensils are designed to be measured at whole-inch increments, with the exception of 5. A selection of this series was reintroduced as Patio Ware in 1956, attempting to cash in on the barbecue craze of the 1950s. This variety remains almost entirely within the heating utensil while in use.
Despite securing a patent for their copper cladding process in 1942, pieces from 1939—1946 featured a Pat. Early pans and skillets featured two piece handles, held together by rivets and screws. The newly developed 2000 line, for use on the then-new 1980s technology of ceramic- and glass-top stoves, featured heavy aluminum bottoms for good heat transfer. The Spectrum series featured aluminum non-stick pans with colored enamel bodies, and were imported from Thailand. While historians and aficionados cite the 6000 Line Designers' Group pieces as the finest cookware manufactured by Revere Ware, the 6500 Line Designer's Group was a confusing addition that sold poorly. But like all great brands, the way a company responds can pave the way for success. There have been many different lines and subtle changes incurred since 1939, yet most utensils retain a particularly universal look.
Cookware was an afterthought—but an untapped opportunity. Revere Ware has since been reintroduced, as World Kitchen currently as of 2016 offers select variations: Copper-cored stainless steel, traditional copper-clad bottomed cookware and anodized non-stick aluminum. You can buy the units individually, but you can also get a set if you are looking to replace your pots and pans or give them as a gift. Both new sets are dishwasher and oven safe—up to 350°F for any piece with handles, and up to 500°F for the Dutch oven and braising pans when used without lids. They have copper bottoms so that they can be heated quickly and evenly. Like all collectibles, some pieces have become more desirable than others. The new handles stay cool to touch on the stove.
They use it on a daily basis and have more expensive pots and pans but always end up using their Revere Ware Cookware instead. Sheets were applied to the wooden hulls of boats to protect them from destructive worms. The shipping weight is 9 pounds and is available to be shipped outside of the United States. Skillets may also be improperly measured, as the cooking surface is slightly smaller than the marked or measured size. The new, simplified trademark featured the familiar Revere silhouette, flanked by 1801, the year of the companies origin. The main series has always been the 1400 line, featuring the classic curved, smooth knurled bakelite handles, stainless steel walls and copper bottoms. You can view a wide selection of their products at.
Revere Ware Cookware mainly comes in sets. The second marked 2 below is a ribbed design with a single handle, similar to a Sauce Pan in construction. You can try the competition but you will eventually become fed up with the clunky designs, the poor material and easily scratchable surfaces. Institutional Ware was introduced for restaurants, schools and military bases. The walls of these Domed lids are noticeably taller than standard utensil lids. We chronicled the 130-year journey that began long before the introduction of the gasoline automobile, the assembling of the Statue of Liberty, or the convenience of electric in most kitchens. Later, a screw was located at either end of the handle.
When identifying various utensils, know that skillets are always of a larger diameter, with a shallow depth and a single long handle. The Centura series sold with less expensive materials, being made overseas, and were offered exclusively from Wal-Mart. Another customer says that they have been using their Revere Ware pots and pans for the last 53 years and they are still in good shape. The 500 line was a series of miniature 1400 series cookware, marketed as toys for children, but manufactured to the same standards as all their consumer cookware. Over the next 40+ years, Revere Ware would introduce new series to position itself in competition with other manufacturers at various price points, or for specific specialty markets.
The earliest style of bakelite handles feature two screws, just a little more than an inch apart, near the pan side of the handle. While specialty items and minor revisions were occasionally made to the line, the 1400 series existed with a relative consistency before the sale to Corning Glass inc. The most iconic pieces are listed below. Copper Maid was another economy series introduced in 1957. The product dimensions are 18×4 x 12 x 9. But what you may not know is that this horseback-riding hero had historic impact on how we cook today, too. Back then most cookware was heavy, made of cast iron, copper or bronze.
Initially Revere Ware was the culmination of various innovative techniques developed during the 1930s, the most popular being construction of stainless steel with rivetlessly attached bakelite handles, copper clad bases and rounded interiors for ease of cleaning. Transferring of its aluminum production from domestic to overseas manufacturing marked the beginning of the end. By 1968, in a cost cutting measure, the bakelite was made from one piece and pressed onto the attached metal handle. In 1998 Revere Ware, along with all of the divisions of Corning Consumer Products, were reorganized under the World Kitchen inc banner. Various aluminum products were also introduced, such as the Galaxy line. Below are the words Made under Process Patent.
I understand that anything you get new now called Revere Ware is made by someone else and is not the same as the older stuff. Most other series introduced were contemporaries of other lines from Corning subsidiaries. No more searching through your drawer for the right fit.
