Magnalite cookware is high quality aluminum cookware that’s been made in the USA in Sydney, Ohio for many years. WagnerWare makes the cookware using the same excellent design and excellent quality aluminum alloy that made Magnalite pans famous since 1934. John Gordon Rideout teamed up famous architect, Frank Lloyd Wright to create the finest “form follows function” design that could be obtained with the manufacturing methods at the time. It is amazing that the cookware is still some of the best even to this day. The style has been copied many times, but the unique blend of alloys has never been duplicated.
There are different levels of Magnalite, Magpro professional cookware is for professional use and Magnalite for smaller operations and amateur chefs. Magpro is more durable, but Magnalite has the traditional design and appearance. It can be a tough choice for some operations because the Magnalite instantly reminds anyone, chefs or visitors, that the restaurant recognizes tradition and quality in their cooking style and equipment.
Magnalite pans are available in full cookware sets or individually. These include –
- Dutch Oven
- Roasting Pan
The Magnalite roaster is one of the more popular pieces and the full cookware sets are great wedding gifts or Christmas presents for cooks that appreciate the old style and design.
If you wondering how to clean magnalite cookware, it’s just like any other aluminum cookware. One preferred method is to add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice per quart of water and bring the mixture to a simmer. After that, clean with a steel wool pad. Standard dishwashing with dish soap and hot water works well too, but leaving soak for long periods or using a dishwasher is not recommended.
