From the Official Revere Ware Picture History Site. Was introduced in 1954 (although it was originally designed in 1939). Positioned for use in hospitals, restaurants, schools, and military bases it was copper clad and featured heavyweight, all stainless steel construction. Available in a wide range of sizes, the skillet and sauce pan handles were long tubes of stainless steel with knurled grip areas and hanging holes, while stock pots used simple, oversized, solid stainless loops. The lids were flat, and recessed to permit efficient stacking (even while hot) with “wing tip” extensions serving as handles. Institutional cookware was made with heavier gauge bodies than regular Revere Ware and did not require rolled rims to stiffen the sidewalls, making them simpler to clean. Although this line was well received, sales never got off the ground (only 113,000 units were made) and it was discontinued in 1958…. One of the biggest food fads of the 1950’s was the backyard barbecue, which was the focus of the. (1800 line) (brought out in 1956). Essentially a spin-off of the Institutional Line, Revere simply replaced the flat Institutional lids with polished, domed versions, and updated the packing. Since men were expected to be the principal users at barbecues, Revere advertised that the large handles were designed for a man’s “larger hands”. The line included only 6 pieces – 4 skillets and 2 stock pots no sauce pans were offered. Although seemingly a well timed and appropriate product, it suffered the same fate as the Institutional line, and production ceased in 1958.
