About Small Saucepan with Lid

Club Aluminum Cookware is retro today, but when introduced nearly 100 years ago, it was cutting edge. It also brought a new way of making and selling the aluminum pots and pans. Cooks also liked aluminum’s similarity to silver. Cast aluminum featured excellent heat conductivity, and unlike cast iron, could come with wooden handles. About half of all cookware is still made with aluminum. History At first, you couldn’t buy Club Aluminum in shops.

Small Saucepan with Lid History

At first, you couldn’t buy Club Aluminum in shops. Club Aluminum began before Tupperware, Avon and Pampered Chef parties. Club Aluminum started in Chicago as the Club Aluminum Utensil Company in 1923.

A 1925 Club Aluminum cookbook informed cooks of the company’s new technology: “The first entire kitchen equipment of processed hardened aluminum, scientifically constructed with tight-fitting covers.” Club Aluminum was also “scientifically constructed to last a lifetime,” according to the book.

Trademark tight-fitting covers helped seal in moisture, which meant there was no need to add water. This introduced a new style of cooking in the home. Club Aluminum touted this cooking style for its health benefits because essential nutrients didn’t escape through steam. The company sold the cookware on the party plan by selling it “directly to home managers through health lectures,” according to the Club Aluminum cookbook.

The cookware parties were most common from 1923, when Club Aluminum began, through 1933, when the Depression made such parties too expensive. The company declared bankruptcy that year and emerged with a new name, Club Products Standard International. The company’s new leader, Herbert Taylor, tested his new business philosophy on the company. That philosophy, the Four Way Test, is still part of Rotary Clubs worldwide today.

The company sold Club Aluminum products through the end of the 20th century, although its heyday was from the late 1930s through the 1960s. Not surprisingly, Club Aluminum pots have the colorful, rounded mid-century modern look of that era. Today, Mirro owns Club Aluminum.

The trademark Club Aluminum stovetop rings, found in a raised pattern on the bottoms of its pots and pans, let you know you have a genuine Club Aluminum product.
