I’ve accidentally started collecting vintage Copco pieces. It all started about 5 years ago with a $5 red pot from the thrift store, and then 2 years later a $10 yellow casserole dish from Scott Antiques came along.
From the looks of the label on the bottom, the little pot with the teak handle, it’s never even been used.
I love how colorful they are together, and I’m trying to locate a spot in the kitchen to have them all out on display. There isn’t much wall space for hanging a shelf or hooks so I’m thinking maybe a really high shelf above the window for cookbooks and my cast iron on the little island cart. We will see how long this easy project takes!
Copco started as a porcelain-enameled, cast iron cookware company, and has evolved into quite a different company today, but they do have a cast iron collection out with Mario Batali. These pots weigh a ton, but heat up like no other. There are quite a few cheerful Copco pieces out there for grabs on etsy and ebay if you want to add a few to your kitchen.
