Join Heritage Steel craftsmen at their work:
Each Heritage Steel Pan Begins at their Tennessee Presses:
We start the process with the highest quality 7-ply stainless steel. These blanks are aligned and pressed into their initial form by machinery exerting up to 300 tons of pressure.
Shape Heritage Steel's Easy-Pour No-Drip Rim
After its initial press, the pan undergoes two additional draws, forming the easy-pour lip of the pan and dispensing with excess metal around the edge.
Each Heritage Steel Pan Gets a Bath In Their water-saving and eco-friendly state-of-the-art 40-foot washer:
