KROMEX

A BRIEF HISTORY OF KROMEX KITCHENWARE KROMEX ALUMINUM KITCHENWARE WAS MADE BY ALCOA ALUMINUM COMPANY AROUND 1957. ALCOA WAS MAINLY AN INDUSTRIAL FIRM AT THE TIME. THEY WERE PURCHASED BY REYNOLDS ALUMINUM IN THE EARLY 1960'S. IT WAS AROUND THAT TIME THAT METALWORKING COMPANIES CHANGED TO INDUSTRIAL AND NOT DOMESTIC PRODUCTION. KROMEX WAS SOLD AT MONTGOMERY WARD AND SEARS TO NAME A FEW. I STILL FIND IT HARD TO BELIEVE KROMEX WAS NEVER PRODUCED AGAIN. IT HAS CLEAN LINES THAT LOOK GREAT WITH TODAY'S STAINLESS APPLIANCES. VERY USER FRIENDLY AND DURABLE,NOT DAINTY! THE COLORS OF KROMEX MAKES YOU WANT TO REDO YOUR KITCHEN JUST TO SET THEM OFF PERFECTLY. THE HOT RETRO COLORS OF TURQUOISE,PINK,YELLOW AND CLASSIC ALUMINUM AND BLACK ARE STILL LOOKING HOT IN KITCHEN DECORS TO THIS DAY!! THERE ARE MANY STYLES AND COLORS INCLUDING COPPER!! SOME KROMEX STYLES ARE EASY TO FIND, AND SOME ARE NEVER FOUND. KEEPS THE COLLECTORS CONSTANTLY LOOKING FOR THAT ELUSIVE PIECE TO COMPLETE THEIR KITCHEN COLLECTION. WHAT FUN!!
