TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
Anolon — from hard anodized, and the suffix meaning “one” — originally offered two hard-anodized nonstick cookware collections, one for the home chef, one for the more experienced cook. Through our first years, as home cooks discovered our cookware, we solidified and strengthened our commitment to our mission, our consumers, and our products.
We selected and utilized components like top-quality aluminum and stainless steel and premium, metal-utensil-safe nonstick. We added Santoprene™ — a rubberized material — to our cookware handles for enhanced handhold, and ultimately trademarked our innovative Anolon® SureGrip® handle. As home cooks continued to expand their culinary capabilities in the years that followed, so did Anolon.
KITCHENWARE AND CULINARY EVOLUTION
We soon recognized that home cooks require more than fine gourmet cookware, so we extended our product development and design standards to new collections: Anolon Bakeware, Anolon Cutlery, and Anolon Tools and Gadgets. From our first baking pan to each durable knife blade to our stylish, practical kitchen utensils, each new Anolon product consistently delivered craftsmanship and distinction for creative gourmet cooks and their evolving kitchen expertise.
We kept growing, learning and evolving in order to deliver the essentials for gourmet cooking to each new culinary generation. In 2009, the Anolon Nouvelle Copper collection brought the first copper-layer base to hard-anodized cookware construction. We developed and launched other cookware collections, and to our cornerstone Advanced line, we added a distinctive companion: Advanced Bronze cookware, featuring the first bronze-colored nonstick exterior.
EXPERIENCE AND DEDICATION
As our years turned to decades, Anolon remained a gourmet kitchenware leader. We stay informed and experienced about cooking trends and developments, including the impact of digital culture. We maintain our focus and refine our processes to keep providing the right kitchenware for home cooks embracing principles and practices such as sustainable food sourcing and modern technologies. Heading into our next twenty-five years, we remain dedicated to continually creating and upgrading our gourmet kitchenware products with similar imagination and innovation.
Farberware® traces its roots back to the year 1900 when S.W. Farber, a tinsmith, set up shop on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. There, in a small dismal basement shop, he pounded sheets of copper and brass into various shapes to make bowls and vases. He continued to introduce various lines of giftware and accessories throughout the years in silver-plated, nickel-plated and chrome-plated finishes.
In 1930, appliances came into the picture and S.W. Farber introduced the first Farberware percolator, thus beginning a tradition of quality and value in small appliance products that continues to this day.
S.W. Farber was an innovator in his field. In 1937, he introduced a device that kept coffee warm for hours after brewing – the “Coffee Robot.” This was followed in 1938 by the “Broiler Robot,” with a device to indicate when the product was ready to use. In 1954, he introduced a stainless steel electric fry pan with an aluminum-clad bottom and a removable probe which gave the consumer the ability to immerse the appliance in water with the probe removed, for easy cleaning. The “Open Hearth” smokeless broiler was “born” in 1962. This was innovative in that the heating element was below the food, rather than above, as in traditional broilers of the time.
Quality, classic styling, tradition, reliability, value… these are attributes synonymous with the Farberware brand for over 100 years. But we’ve gone one step further. We’ve taken the best of the past and combined it with the technology of today to give you the best of all worlds. So take a look at what we have to offer, and give it a try! We know you won’t be disappointed.

Ruffoni is the legendary Italian hand hammered cookware, stunning in appearance, and is guaranteed to be the resplendent focus of any kitchen or dining room.
Ruffoni is situated on the banks of the secluded Orta Lake in the Italian Alps, an area appropriately known as the land of the coppersmiths. In 1931, Antoni Ruffoni crafted his first copper pan, a skill and passion that he passed onto his son, Fremide.
In 1962 Fremide Ruffoni founded the Ruffoni Company. Using antique manufacturing techniques passed down from his grandfather, he continued to produce the beautiful hand hammered copperware, ensuring uniqueness and exceptional quality was achieved by devoting attention to the smallest details. With passion and work handed down from generation to generation, today the Ruffoni Company is managed by Walter Ruffoni, Fremide’s son, who continues to produce unique, exquisite cookware pieces.
Not all cookware is of such splendor that it is presented in a museum, but Ruffoni pieces are. Proud of their historic roots, the Ruffoni Company has preserved and converted the original factory into a museum, enabling visitors to visually experience the story of the Ruffoni Company. On display is Ruffoni cookware and production equipment of old, allowing the museum to be utilised as a source of inspiration for the manufacture of new and exciting pieces. Today, the production of Ruffoni is anything but typical. Ruffoni still devotedly craft their cookware using antique specialist techniques:
- Hand hammering
- Mould melting
The end result is striking and it’s these traditional skills and attention to detail that allows for Ruffoni’s majestic appearance, and explicably differentiates the brand from mass produced cookware.
In forming cookware pieces using traditional master craftsmanship, Ruffoni accomplishes something not many other organisations can state – They create masterpieces, magnificent works of art that incorporate superior functionality and reflect centuries of history, experience and tradition.
