What are we doing to our bodies/environment with all of these man-made chemicals? Are the cheap bargain brand $19.95 non-stick pots and pans so cheap after all? What kind of metal goes into those pots and pans and where does it come from, why do all the recycling yards sell their ferrous metals to China?
I started to look for copper pots years ago after I purchased, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, by Julia Child. When I started to do research on copper cookware with tin lining it was from either France or Italy. I wanted to buy American, I don’t remember how I found out about this guy in New York selling a brand of copper pots named Hammersmith. I read his articles about, “Why Copper Cookware” and “Pure Metal Cookware” and I thought this guy is fanatical, so I called him years before I bought and I could feel his passion through the phone even though I was 2800 miles away in Los Angeles. I even took a trip out to Brooklyn to meet him. I loved what he was doing and I loved the product simple materials, I could see the passion in his eyes.
It’s not the height of one’s knowledge that attracts people, its the depth of their conviction and Mac had that in spades. You want to draw people to you to set yourself on fire, not literally, but as a firefighter I race to put out fires and you wouldn’t believe how many people stop what they are doing and look to see what’s going on with the fire. I think that’s what you guys are doing with Brooklyn Copper Cookware, we need to start the fires of manufacturing in this country again. We need to invest in America again. Why do I buy Brooklyn Copper Cookware? BECAUSE IT’S MADE IN THE USA AND SUPPORTING WORKING FAMILIES IN AMERICA!
