“More than twenty years ago, my dad passed down his treasured (Health Craft) large stockpot to me. Overall, it has been in use for more than 35 years and has attended more family events then many of the younger and outlived a number of older family members. Now, on Father’s Day, I will pass hosting duties and the stockpot on to my first-born son to continue the family tradition. Our entire family owns many Health Craft products. Thanks for the memories." Bobby B. Biloxi, MS.
Why invest in high-quality stainless steel? Because aluminum and cheap stainless pots corrode, discolor, alter the taste of food, and can even contaminate.
