REVERE Announces Launch of Two New Cookware Lines

REVERE announced the launch of two new cookware lines. The new lines – offered in stainless steel and hard anodized aluminum – will continue the brand's long-standing history and commitment to durability and quality cooking performance at an affordable price, with a patent-pending new feature and fresh authentic designs on trend with the needs of today's modern kitchen. The new lines are REVERE Copper Confidence Core™ Stainless Steel Cookware and REVERE Clean Pan™ Hard Anodized Aluminum Non-Stick Cookware. Both lines include a new patent-pending feature, the innovative Nest&Protect™ interlocking handles. Expanding on the functionality of the traditional hanging ring, the new design integrates features to nest and lock fry pan and sauce pot handles in place. As a result, when nested the pots and pans are elevated above one another, seemingly floating, to protect the interior and exterior finish, and store conveniently and efficiently without scratching. Unique features for the lines include: REVERE Copper Confidence Core™ Stainless Steel Cookware honors the brand's heritage, utilizing a copper disc centered within each pan's aluminum encapsulated stainless steel sub-base. Working together, these highly conductive materials help heat quicker than heavier gauge pans and more evenly. The 430 stainless steel base makes this set compatible with all cooktops, including induction. And laser engraved quick-measure marks found within the sauce pots, stock pot and Dutch oven save prep time. REVERE Clean Pan™ Hard Anodized Aluminum Non-Stick Cookware is designed to save time and effort for cleanup. The hard anodized aluminum surface is super durable, and the interior is coated with the Clean Pan™ three-layer titanium reinforced (PFOA free) non-stick coating that is metal utensil and dishwasher safe. Additional features available for both sets include stay-cool handles and interchangeable glass dome lids, and they are dishwasher and oven safe up to 350 degrees.
