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 larger, more rugged handles of the 1800 line were marketed as made specifically for men's larger hands.
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.
Other lines introduced to expand the Revere Ware brand were the heavy duty Institutional line, substituting Stainless Steel handles for the bakelites.
By 1985 the cookware subsidiary Revere Ware Incorporated, which had remained profitable, had been sold to Corning Glass inc.. had expanded Revere Ware from the four lines at their acquisition, to over dozen lines, while ceasing any domestic manufacturing.
In 1998 World Kitchen became the controlling parent company of Corning.
You can still buy Revere Ware, which is now owned by Corning, (AKA World Kitchens), but it is stamped “China” or “Indonesia”, and one variation (Pro Line) was made in Thailand for a while.
The “good old pans” were and still are MUCH heavier and better than what you can buy today at Wal-Mart.
Coinciding with new series introductions, cost cutting measures were implemented in the manufacture of the traditional cookware.
The bakelite handles were changed from two piece to one, and the thickness of utensil walls and copper cladding were reduced.
The reduction of both stainless steel and copper continued throughout the decades.
(More on that in future posts.) Revere also changed their logo in 1968.
Prior to the sale of Revere Ware to Corning Glass inc in 1985, the brand offered or had in development four series.
