The Shine Shop is happy to announce that you can now purchase a BRAND NEW replacement handle hardware for your Revere Ware skillets and pans!
Hardware set (details)
Material: Stainless steel
Includes: Two nuts, two screws, and a hanging hook
Fits: Vintage era (pre-1968) SMALL handles. Most common are 6" skillet and early 3/4 quart saucepan handles.
The screws in the hardware set are phillips head, not slotted like the original Revere Ware screw sets were. Because the original slot head screws strip very easily, we consider this an improvement.
In some cases, the old screws can rust together and are very hard to get off. Twisting the screw also twists the nut on the other side. You can try pressing a slotted screwdriver between the edge of the nut and the bakelite to create some resistance to keep the nut from turning, but if it is truly corroded, the only real solution we've found is to break the bakelite off by prying between the two halves with a screwdriver. Once the bakelite is off, you can grab the nut with pliers.
