Retro colored cookware: Wear-Ever Bounty (1972)

Everything you expect from high-priced cookware, except the price.

The outside is fired-on-at-1000°F porcelain. The cooking surface is superbonded Teflon II on thick, heavy-gauge aluminum. The colors are kitchen coordinated: Avocado, Poppy, Harvest Gold and Horizon Blue.

Look at the selection: Fry pans, sauce pans, griddles, saute pans, bakeware about $5. Five and eight-quart dutch ovens, egg poachers, chicken fryers, teakettles $8 to $12. Rice steamers and other sets $12 to $30.

It’s high-priced cookware without the high price. Any way you look at it.
