“We’ve redesigned the entire Brooklyn Copper Cookware line to better fit American range tops and our Brooklyn pedigree. This has involved retooling from the ground up, which has teamed us with some of the last remaining hand metal workers in the country, all of whom are itching to get BCC moving again.”
Mac Kohler Founder, Brooklyn Copper Cookware
A Letter from Mac Kohler
Hello! We’re very happy for your interest and that you’ve stopped by.
Brooklyn Copper Cookware, Ltd. reintroduced American-made heavy-weight copper cookware to the market about three years ago – the first in a generation. Before we’d even finished our first pans we were deluged with orders, repair work and press coverage – exactly what any company just starting out could wish for, right? As grateful as we were (and are) for the amazing reception, we hadn’t anticipated just how big the demand for our solid, simple, beautifully-crafted tools would be, and we fell behind fulfilling orders pretty much immediately. Other factors outside our control (like weather) further compromised our delivering quality in a timely manner, so we shut things down to reassess. Having determined the market is ready for BCC, and committed as we are to making world-class wares in the US by hand, how best to now make those wares and meet demand?
The full story of relaunching the Brooklyn Copper Cookware line is available on our blog, but in the meantime work continues apace on bringing our original idea back to market better and… more original!
Lord willin’ and the crick don’t rise (again), we’ll be introducing the first of our redesigned, re-engineered BCC lineup in early 2015. You can be first to know by signing up for our newsletter, or if you’d like to get on the pre-order list just click through to the contact page to let us know.
Everything we’re already known for will only be getting better in BCC v2.0 – we’ll be using even thicker copper on many of our pieces, adding new items, improving our copper-to-tin bond, and introducing the most elegant iron ever married to copper. Our first new pieces will include the 3 quart rondeau, the 16 quart stock pot, our very popular 6 quart casserole and our best-selling 9.5 inch sauté. We expect these early wares to sell out prior to our official relaunch, so sign up for our newsletter to get your pick of the first litter!
While we can’t wait to show our new wares off, we’ve resumed our retinning and repair business with new partners. Our hand-wiped tin is now thicker and smoother, and we’ve been able to drop our price by over 15%. If your old copper could use some lovin’, please drop us a line through the contact page and we’ll get you started.
And if you have any questions regarding copper cookware, or any other cookware for that matter (or if you’d just like to say “hi”), please be in touch. We’re open for business and always open to hearing from aficionado and beginner alike.
Again, thanks for your interest and we look forward to helping out in the kitchen.
