Our Buy American Mention of the Week!

Right off the bat, I'll let you in on a little secret. I really like Jacob Bromwell. There is always something new happening at the oldest kitchenware and housewares manufacturer in North America. Sounds rather ironic, doesn't it? That's why I don't mind writing about this company more times (possibly) than any other company.
And what's not to like? Everything is made in USA with a lifetime guarantee by this company that still subscribes to the time-honored tradition of small-scale, hand manufacturing. For heaven's sake, where can you find a company that still offers exact reproductions of some of the same items (like the classic tin cup) that they (yes, Jacob Bromwell) supplied during the Civil War?
Okay, enough of the history lesson. Let's move on to talking about what Jacob Bromwell does best. They make a great variety of great kitchen and bakeware items, flasks and drinkware, writing instruments, tobacco accessories, and men's accessories. You can check them all out at www.rogersaysJB.com.
Flasks and drinkware happen to be their best sellers, so you might want to check out those functional works of art first. Yes, you'll notice the prices aren't going to land Jacob Bromwell products on shelves of Wal-Mart or Target, but we're not bargain shopping here, either. We're dealing with skilled artisans that gradually cut and mold raw materials (in America) into elegant and timeless pieces that will literally last forever.
The Great American Flask is their best-selling flask, which holds nine fluid ounces and remains true to Jacob Bromwell's original 1819 design. It is 100 percent handcrafted in the USA (right down to its American Birch stopper) using pure, solid copper and undergoes a lead-free soldering process at their Vermont workshop, just like the massive copper pots used by distillers for purifying liquids.
Right now I have my eye on the bigger and bolder Green Mountain Flask, as it holds 13 ounces and features a copper chain with a permanently-attached cork stopper. It's safe to say that this will definitely not be the first Jacob Bromwell product in my home...far from it!
If you're looking for a classic line of products you can keep closer to the kitchen, you'll want to check out Jacob Bromwell's kitchen and bakeware products. From the Original Popcorn Popper and All-American Flour Sifter to the Legendary Colander and Texas Deep Fry Baskets, you'll find something to uniquely complement your kitchen here.
When you browse the men's accessory items, you'll find products that are proudly made by red-blooded American men for red-blooded American men. These include the Lexington Money Clip, Old West Shot Glasses (set of four), and the Ben Franklin Beer Stein. No two Ben Franklin Beer Steins are alike, since they are completely built by hand. But yours will still hold 30 ounces of your favorite beer.
Jacob Bromwell is one of the few patriotic companies you will find that has never outsourced production to low-wage labor countries to reduce costs because they have faith in the creativity and productivity of American workers. The numerous variety of authentic materials used to make Jacob Bromwell products, including steel, stainless steel, tin, aluminum, copper, wood, iron, and leather, are all sourced domestically. Absolutely nothing is imported.
And right now, you can get a full 25 percent off your order if you order within the next 60 days (which will take you all the way through Christmas - hint, hint) by using the discount code BUYAMERICAN25 at checkout. Simply visit http://rogersaysJB.com and see all the great things that Jacob Bromwell has to offer.
Jacob Bromwell operates manufacturing facilities in Indiana and Vermont and all of their products are sold at select specialty retailers throughout North America, Australia, Asia, and Europe. With millions of units sold and a lifetime revenue of over $1 billion since 1819, it is estimated that 1 in 4 American households still own a Jacob Bromwell product. If you aren't a customer already, you should become one of them. Few companies design, manufacture, market, and distribute products today that are as authentically American as Jacob Bromwell.
