WEST BEND -- Brian spent the morning at Housekeep Crockery learning how to make hand-crafted cookware using centuries-old manufacturing techniques. They created vintage copper cookware from scratch, tinning copper cookware and seasoning cast iron skillets over an open fire.
About Housekeep Crockery (website)
In the 1800s, much of what was found in the kitchens were items that were actually forged, hammered and created in America. It was too expensive to send over to Europe for cookware and kitchen goods, and all of the natural resources and artisans could be found here in the States anyway.
Today, that’s often not the case with our kitchenware. Pots are made by machine in China, dishtowels are stitched in Taiwan and food is grown in Mexico.Housekeeper Crockery copper cookware is made in America. Our dishtowels are made in America. Our cast iron is made in Wisconsin. Our pottery is made in Wisconsin.
At Housekeeper Crockery, we’re dedicated to bringing our food preparation tools home.
