Aug. 6 marked the 75th anniversary for Regal Ware, a family-owned marketing and manufacturing company that was founded in 1945. Founder J.O. Reigle started the company out of a desire to build “the finest plant with the finest equipment to produce and sell the world’s finest cooking ware.” Third and fourth generations of the Reigle family and many other multi-generational families have continued that work. The products are produced in Wisconsin and sold under a variety of brand names, including Saladmaster, Lifetime, and Classica. American Kitchen and ESPRO coffee and tea presses are also available.
