Revere Ware Cookware

Revere Ware Cookware has been around long enough that most people remember seeing it used in their mother's and grandmother's kitchens.

This durable cookware has been around so long for a reason: it is easy to use, easy to clean and maintains its quality for generations.

With its signature pots and pans that sport their copper bottoms, it is arguably the most recognizable cookware line today.

Revere Ware Cookware Highlights

Revere Ware is lightweight, durable and easy to clean. The stainless steel and copper design of the original collection remains popular to this day. Revere now includes nonstick pans in its product line for people who like the convenience and ease of cleaning that nonstick provides.

Their nonstick formula is also resistant to scratches by metal utensils. Revere also offers a bridal registry on its website so new couples can start their lives together with the best Revere has to offer.

Revere Ware Products

  • Copper Advantage (Copper Base) – this is the traditional design that is most commonly associated with Revere Ware. The copper is exposed on the base as a design feature and to provide even heating. The brushed stainless steel is non-reactive and easy to clean after cooking.
  • Copper Advantage (Protected Copper) – this series sandwiches the copper between layers of stainless steel, allowing only a small band of copper to show through. Besides this change, this series shares the same high quality as the Copper Base collection.
  • Tri-Ply Stainless Steel (without Nonstick) – this line of stainless steel cookware encapsulates a disk of aluminum on the bottom for even heating. The knobs are treated with a phenolic coating to keep them cool and Revere's well-known pistol-grip handles provide a safe and comfortable grip. The handles are oven-safe to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Tri-Ply Stainless Steel (with Nonstick) – the same high quality you find in the Tri-Ply Stainless Steel with a nonstick interior. This nonstick interior is safe for metal utensils. Dishwasher safe, this collection can be used in the oven up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Revere Aluminum Nonstick – with polished aluminum, this lightweight cookware offers fast, even heating with high quality nonstick interiors for easy clean up. The handles of the pots and pans are oven safe to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Matching lids also have phenolic knobs to protect the cook from burns.
  • Teakettles – Revere offers its classic tea kettle and a more modern design with a copper bottom and stainless steel body. The copper bottom makes for quick and even distribution of heat so water boils quickly. They both sport phenolic handles that remain cool to the touch.

History of Revere Ware

Revere cookware has its roots in the very history of the United States. Paul Revere, patriot and silversmith began working with copper in 1801. He founded the Revere Copper Company which turned into Copper and Brass, Incorporated, the very company that makes Revere Ware Copper Clad Stainless Steel Cookware.

This most visibly recognizable line of cookware was designed by W. Archibald Welden and introduced to the world in 1939. This design epitomized great advances in technical and aesthetic design and proved to be amazingly durable without being too heavy. The new rounded edges made the pots easier to clean as well.

During World War II, Revere made war materials, and houseware production completely stopped until after the war ended. In 1966, the company diversified into aluminum. In 1986, after several years of financial problems, Revere was bought out by the Oxford Financial Group. Under the new ownership, Revere began to expand to include cutlery and small appliances.

In 1988, Revere Copper and Brass sold its houseware division to Corning Glass, which also owned Pyrex, Corning Ware and Visions. Today, Revere cookware is still one of the best known and most popular brands of stovetop cookware. With its heritage, quality, durability and innovation, Revere is bound to remain one of the most popular brands of cookware for some time to come.

Revere Ware has stood the test of time, and many people have old kettles or saucepans they have inherited with the famous copper bottom. The quality and ingenuity of the Revere company has continued to grow and today's cookware is just as durable and easy to use as the originals.
