This is a great pan! Not just for chicken-frying, but for just about anything. It was made in Clinton, Illinois in 1985. They aren’t super rare, but they are not as easily found as some Revere Ware items. When it is full, it is pretty heavy, so the opposite handle is great for two-handed lifting. This is the newest piece of Revere Ware that I own, and one of the last made in the good old USA.
Super low heat is the key to cooking with this pan. As with all Revere Ware, the copper conducts the heat so much better than other metals, so high heat is a no-no. The Revere company put out several recipe books specifically for cooking with copper bottomed Revere Ware pans.
If anyone would like a free copy of this e-book, leave a comment on this post, and I will email you one. The book is great, but I have found one thing that removes copper tarnish even better than the cleaners mentioned in the book.
If I did all the technical stuff correctly, you can click on the picture of this copper cleaner “Texas Magic Sparkle” and the link will take you to where you can get some. It is all natural, and made from food-grade ingredients, and it isn’t a messy powder, it is a nice gel consistency, so it stays on the copper, and in about 1 minute or less, the copper tarnish is gone! No abrasives either, which I like, because there is only so much copper on the bottom of a Revere Ware pan, so why scratch off any when you don’t have to?
