The current owner of Hammersmith Cookware became infatuated with copper cookware in 1984 after reading an article about Hammersmith Cookware in an in-flight magazine. After visiting them, he decided he wanted to work in the industry and bought Hammersmith Cookware in 1986. The factory was moved to New Jersey where all aspects of production are done in-house. Cooking with copper has many benefits – including more even distribution of heat. Hammersmith Cookware handcrafts its copper pots and pans in America to high standards to ensure chefs and serious home cooks have successful, quality cookware.
