Meet John

John Martelli has led production at our factory in Tennessee for over 40 years, and he really knows his stuff when it comes to quality cookware. John doesn’t compromise – he ensures that every piece of cookware that leaves our factory is up to his high standards.

We have a long history of private label custom manufacturing, constantly innovating with the newest technologies. We’re now bringing that experience and innovation directly to you.

We're committed to

Uncompromising Quality

In crafting a quality product there is often a choice between the easy path, and the right path. For our cookware, we've consistently chosen the path of better materials, smarter design, and higher standards of quality.

Here's what that looks like in practice:

Why use 7 layers?

Most other multiclad stainless steel cookware will use 3 to 5 layers of metal in their construction. We opt for a 7-ply metal sourced from Pennsylvania.

Our 7-ply construction isn’t a gimmick or an excuse to charge a higher price — it’s a design choice that allows us to craft cookware that doesn’t sacrifice durability or beauty.

Better Exterior

Most cookware will use 400 series steel on the exterior for its induction capability. However, 400 series steel is significantly more prone to corrosion and pitting, sacrificing the long-term beauty and durability of the cookware.

Our 7-ply design allows us to use 304 steel on the exterior, improving resistance to corrosion and producing a deeper, longer-lasting shine. Our cookware is made induction-ready by sandwiching the 400 series steel inside the exterior 304 steel.

Better Surface

While other premium cookwares will tout their use of 18/10 steel, we decided to go a step further. 316Ti steel is a titanium-stabilized alloy that is even more durable and non-reactive than 18/10. The added titanium and molybdenum makes 316Ti twenty times more resistant to corrosion and pitting from chloride solutions that occur when cooking with salt directly in the pan.

The result? It's the most non-reactive cooking surface available that will stand the test of time.

even & efficient heating

We use three layers of aluminum throughout the body of the cookware to quickly and efficiently distribute heat.

  1. 316Ti Stainless Steel — Unrivaled stability and durability
  2. 1145 Pure Aluminum — Bonding layer; even & efficient heating
  3. 3004 Aluminum — Even & efficient heating
  4. 1145 Pure Aluminum — Bonding layer; even & efficient heating
  5. 304 Stainless Steel — Strength & structure
  6. 400 Ferritic Steel — Protected magnetic steel for induction capability
  7. 304 Stainless Steel — Durable surface with lasting luster

Designed for Great Cooking

Not only does our cookware use the best materials available, it's also a joy to cook with.

Professional chefs consistently choose stainless steel cookware for a reason — it creates the most flavorful results. We want to make that experience available to every home cook.

Authentic Flavor

Cast iron or aluminum cookware can chemically interact with the food in your pan, changing its flavor.

Our 316Ti cooking surface develops the flavor of your food without altering it. It’s ideal for building flavor-packed fond and deglazing. Plus, cleaning is simple.

Easy to use

We’ve designed our cookware to be comfortable and easy to use.

  • Our handles are actually comfortable in your hand, and have a hollow center to stay cool on the stove.
  • The edges of our cookware are ground smoothly for easy, no-drip pouring.
  • Fully oven-safe, dishwasher-safe, and compatible with all cooktops (including induction).

Variable thickness

Thicker isn’t always better. Instead, we believe every piece of cookware should be designed for its own intended purpose.

Fry pans and skillets are for browning and searing, so ours are thicker in order to retain more heat. Saucepans and stockpots are for simmering or boiling, so ours are a bit thinner in order to respond faster to changes in heat.

Quality & Value

The way we choose to manufacture our cookware isn’t cheap — we use only the best materials and employ skilled craftsmen here in the USA. Yet we are still very competitive in our pricing with other companies that do not have these same exacting standards.

lifetime warranty

We’re confident in the quality of our products and have been servicing our customers’ cookware for over 60 years. If any of the products you purchase from us exhibit flaws in manufacturing, we will replace it — no questions asked.

American Manufacturing

We’ve made made high-quality custom stainless steel cookware in Clarksville, TN for over 40 years. Many of our employees have been working with us for over 20 years.

We value this legacy not only for the great cookware it produces, but also for the chance to work with our talented friends and neighbors.
