traces its roots way back to the year 1900 when S.W. Farber, a tinsmith, set up shop on
Manhattan's Lower East Side. There, in a small dismal basement shop, he pounded sheets of
copper and brass into various shapes to make bowls, vases, etc. He continued to introduce
various lines of giftware and accessories throughout the years in silver-plated,
nickel-plated and chrome-plated finishes.
The year 1930 is the year in which
appliances came into the picture. That was the year that S.W. Farber introduced the first
FARBERWARE® percolator, thus beginning a
tradition of quality and value in small appliance products that continues to this day.
S.W. Farber was an innovator in his field.
In 1937, he introduced a device that kept coffee warm for hours after brewing - the
"Coffee Robot." This was followed in 1938 by the "Broiler Robot," with
a device to indicate when the product was ready to use. In 1954, he introduced a stainless
steel electric fry pan with an aluminum-clad bottom and a removable probe (sound
familiar?) which gave the consumer the ability to immerse the appliance in water (with the
probe removed!) for easy cleaning. The "Open Hearth" smokeless broiler (Now this
is really starting to sound familiar!) was "born" in 1962. This was innovative
in that the heating element was below the food, rather than above, as in traditional
broilers of the time.
