History: The Wear-Ever brand was created in 1903 evolving out of a number of mergers by companies including The Aluminum Cooking Utensil Company, the Aluminum Manufacturing Company of Two Rivers and Manitowoc Aluminum Novelty Company. Wear-Ever was originally sold directly to consumers through travelling salesmen and by 1913 it was one of the most recognized brands of aluminum cookware. By 1941, WearEver accounts for 40% of the aluminum cookware sales in the United States. In 2004 Global Home Products purchased the Mirro, Regal and Wear-Ever brands and combined them to form The WearEver Company. See: www.wearever.com/aboutus/history.htm
