Founded in 1880 by Edward Katzinger as Edward Katzinger Co., EKCO is one of the earliest manufacturers of kitchen utensils. Originally a manufacturer of tin pans for commercial bakeries, EKCO added kitchen tools and utensils to the line in the 1930s. By the 1950s, the company was the greatest name in housewares, making just about every imaginable kind of pan, utensil or gadget. In 1999 EKCO was acquired by World Kitchen and continues in operation today.
EKCO’s most iconic utensils was the Flint 1900 line (as pictured above). The resilient and durable Flint line set the production and design standard for all kitchen tools. Unfortunately, this classic line is out of production. @ EKCO – it would be wise to relaunch it!
