  • Aristo-Craft Cookware
    In about 1964, my mom purchased a complete set of Aristo-Craft Square-round cookware from the West Bend Company. Over the years, some of the handles have become brittle and broken. Can anyone tell me where I can get replacement handles, or possibly if someone has a set they have disguarded. I've tried the West Bend Co. and they are not available. Thank you.

    Good morning. Did you ever find those handles? I have the same cookware. I have damaged a few pieces through the years. Would you have any interest in selling the pieces you have? If so I would like to hear from you. bjff

    I also have a set of Aristo Craft that I've been using since 1962! (don't you just love that square round shape?) A couple of years ago I also needed a couple of new knobs for the lids. I called the West Bend Company and they mailed them to me at a small charge. I suggest you call them and try again--maybe the person you talked to just didn't know what to look for. The knobs they sent me don't have the Aristo Craft logo on them like the original ones, but they fit. Good luck!

    Funny, I bought a set too in 1965, gave it to my daughter and now she's moving out of state and I have them back.   I thought I would try to find the handles and matching knobs for the top. West Bend had a lifetime guarantee, but can't find them to buy new these pieces.  They are still in good shape, and plan on keeping them.  If I find anyplace that we can buy them, I will let you know.

    I sent Regal an email, this was their answer, very nice company and the charge for getting free ones is only $8.00, My question was to confirm they were the square pots and pans.

     

    Yes, those are handles and knobs for Aristo Craft cookware.

    To receive replacement handles/knobs no-charge, per the warranty, the broken parts must be returned to the service department. We do require a check for $8.00 is included for shipping and handling. Send the package, UPS or Parcel Post Insured to the address below with your name and address and a letter of explanation:

    If you do not have the broken parts to return you may order the parts at a cost of $8.37 per knob and per long handle and $6.13 per side handle plus $8.00 for shipping and handling.

    Hi SD,

    Do you still have your Aristo-Craft Square Round Cookware that said you wanted to sell?  I grew up using it and I cannot get my mom to give hers up.  I've been looking for a pot set for four years since I got married, and none of the modern ones work as well.  Contact me at stephenandgina@gmail.com if you're still looking to sell.

    I bought a full set of Aristo Craft (including pie pans, mixing bowls, etc.- About $250.00) in 1960 from a door-to-door salesman when I was 18 in Charleston, SC.   Have used them for 50 years.  Except for the handles and knobs, they are like new.  The square design is terrific.  Too bad no one makes cookware like they once did.  I am so happy to know I can order the handles and knobs.  Thanks......

    I bought my Aristo Craft pans in 1964, at the age of 18, and have used them since I was married in 1965.  I haven't had a problem with the knobs or handles but my son burned macaroni on the bottom of the large pot just about 8 yrs ago.  I still use it but it's stained on the bottom.  What I am missing, is the lid to the double boiler.  It got thrown out accidently years ago.  I contacted West Bend years ago and was told since they no longer make this square style, they had no replacements parts, basically meaning their lifetime warranty is only the lifetime of the product.  They offered to sell me a new double boiler at the discounted price(since I was a prior customer) of 'only' $360.00.  RegalWare which bought out West Bend and the Aristo Craft product only has knobs and handles.  I found a lid on eBay but it was for the smaller pan.  If anyone finds an extra lid to the double boiler, I would be interested in buying it.

    I also bought a full set of the Aristo Craft from a door-to-door salesman in Greenville, SC in 1962 for approximately $250. This was right before I got married and wondered why I would spend so much for pots and pans. It turned out to be one of the best buys I ever made. I still use them and except for the handles coming off they are fantastic. In the past I have gotten new handles to both pots and lids. My problem is the screws on lids must be worn out and I have never been to get them attached. I will try the company again to see if they can suggest something. It is good to hear about so many people still using their pans instead of goi g to newer products that are not near as good. New certainly does not mean it is better.
