I'm always keeping my eye out for cookware at garage sales or thrift shops. Being in rural MN, there's really not a huge amount of cool second hand cookware to find. Mostly Calphalon and Cuisinart-ish stuff.
Anyhow, cut to chase. . . I picked up a set of Revere Pro Line cookware at a garage sale for $5. I got an eight inch skillet, a butter warmer, a sauce pan and two larger 'dutch oven' style pots. At first I was all, 'Ewww, Revere' thinking about that copper bottom stuff my grandma had in her 50's postmodern farmhouse kitchen. This is really different stuff.
"1989 - The first completely new Revere/Corning product was brought out - ProLine - made of a very heavy gauge of 18/10 stainless steel with a copper disc bottom faced with stainless steel to provide even heating and unusual "wire" handles which were designed by Richard Gregor of Corning. It was first made at Clinton, but by 1994 production was shifted to Thailand."
I've been cooking on it, and really enjoying it. The handles are wonky, but strangely pleasant in the hand. I'm really surprised and kinda sad. I seem to have maxxed out my cookware space in one fell swoop. . . now I'm going to really have to talk nicely to the wife if something even cooler comes along.
