The new stainless steel cookware line named Marcus, which will be available at major retailers this fall, is aimed at the home chef who wants to prepare food like a professional.
“After cooking for so many years I wanted to make a switch in my cookware. There are far better stoves with higher heat appearing in home kitchens and I wanted to create a product to match,” says Samuelsson.
“MARCUS Cookware embodies my vision for every home chef to have the best products for their culinary experiences. More and more, real working pots and pans are being displayed in kitchens. Home chefs should be proud of their tools – that’s why I created such a sleek and contemporary line of cookware.”
Marcus Cookware is manufactured and distributed by Regal Ware Worldwide, the leading manufacturer of high quality stainless steel cookware in the United States. “We are pleased to partner with a chef of Marcus Samuelsson’s caliber in bringing this product to the retail market,” said Jeff Reigle, President and CEO of the Wisconsin based company. “MARCUS cookware reflects our tradition of offering the world’s finest cookware to promote the health and wellness of families today.”
According to a press release by Regal Ware Worldwide, a portion of all proceeds from the sale Marcus cookware will be donated to charities close to Marcus Samuelsson, which help to improve children’s lives.
The Marcus Cookware line consists of two Covered Stock Pots (8 quart and 5.4 quart); three Covered Sauce Pans (3.5 quart, 2 quart and 1 quart); two Covered Sauté Pans with Helper Handle (11.75 inch and 10 inch); three Fry Pans (11.5 inch, 10 inch, 8 inch); and a Pasta Set. Every item can be used on gas, electric, ceramic glass and induction stoves.
