Calphalon Cookware History

In 1963, Ronald Kasperzak purchased a small metal company in Ohio called Commercial Metal. He turned it into the Commercial Aluminum Cookware Company. His goal was to provide aluminum cookware for the foodservice industry. In 1968, Commercial Aluminum Cookware adapted a technique from the aerospace industry to cookware? hard-anodizing.

This new line of cookware using this technique was called Calphalon. In 1975, Calphalon was introduced to the home cook. By 1992, Calphalon had developed their first nonstick cookware line, and the name "Calphalon" became a brand name instead of just the name of a product line.

In 1993, the Commercial Aluminum Cookware Company made the decision to close its foodservice division to devote its time to the retail market. In 1994, the company introduced its new lines of utensils and bakeware to the public. Calphalon has now been firmly established as a kitchenware brand. In 1997, the Commercial Aluminum Cookware Company officially changed its name to the Calphalon Corporation. New lines of cookware continue to be developed for the public.

Newell Rubbermaid purchased Calphalon in 1998, adding it to their growing family of companies like Little Tike, Rubbermaid and Graco. This same year, Calphalon introduced a new line of hard-anodized cookware. New lines of cookware were introduced in 2000, 2001 and 2002.

Also in 2001, the Calphalon Culinary Center opened in Chicago. This interactive educational center teaches new cooking styles, ethnic traditions and more using the best equipment Calphalon can provide. In 2002, Calphalon adds cutlery to its expansive line of products, introducing Contemporary Cutlery in 2003 and Katana in 2005. A second Culinary Center is added in Toronto in 2003, introducing Calphalon to Canada.

As 2006 came and went, Calphalon cookware branched out into silicone bakeware, bamboo utensils and a wide range of kitchen hand tools. Enameled cast iron was launched in 2007, adding color to the kitchen.
