Wilkinson 1888 Heritage Brand

Using our 130 years of bakeware and cookware expertise, we have developed 8 flagship kitchenware ranges offering you a great blend of proven quality, performance and value.

An additional benefit that Wilkinson 1888 can offer our customers is the option of using our family’s heritage brand to develop and customize a range, in expert partnership with us, that best serves your requirements. For example, we can offer a wide variety of metal substrates for both cookware and bakeware alongside an even greater variety of non-stick, natural and ceramic coatings and have the capability to guide you through the comparative benefits of each combination.

Similar to the private label ranges we develop and supply, we have high standards of quality control for any products supplied under the Wilkinson 1888 brand.

BAKEWARE

COOKWARE

BAKEWARE

The Heritage Collection

This material substrate is aluminized steel and is produced by what we call a “hot dip” process. This is when carbon steel is passed through a bath of molten aluminum which adds a considerable protective barrier to corrosion and considerably extends the dishwasher resistance.

Aluminum outperforms chrome steel and conducts heat four times faster than carbon steel and therefore, the aluminum layer produces more even baking.

Key Features of Heritage Collection

  • Crafted from ALUMINIZED steel
  • Very heavy Gauge – 0.8mm
  • ‘Best in Class’, reinforced, double-layer, non-stick coating (of your choice from our wide range of high-quality coatings)
  • Integral Handles
  • Plastic hanging tabs

Please note that as with all our standard Wilkinson 1888 branded ranges, we can discuss customization of the items in the range, the metal substrate and the coating. To include variations on design features such as coloured coatings, embossed bases, handles/grips etc.

BAKEWARE

Black Diamond Collection

We use high quality, cold-rolled carbon steel at the start of the manufacturing process and this allows us to deep draw many of the shapes and sizes you can see in the standard range below. Once the pans are created, we then process them through an acidic bath to remove any industrial oils and prepare the perfect surface on which to apply the very best PFOA-free non-stick coatings. The non-stick application process is finished off by hand to ensure even the trickiest of corners are well-coated. The pans are then cured at around 300℃.

Key Features of Black Diamond Collection

  • Crafted from high quality cold-rolled steel
  • Heavy Gauge – 0.6mm
  • ‘Best in Class’, reinforced, single-layer, non-stick coating (of your choice from our wide range of high-quality coatings)
  • Handle-free rolled edges
  • Plastic hanging tabs

COOKWARE

Tri-Pry ‘Best of Both’

The shiny, durable, mirror-polished beauty of our stainless steel cookware with the added benefit of an encapsulated aluminium core to maximise heat transfer and temperature consistency. Using the latest multi-layering technology, stainless steel and aluminium are bonded together to form the special Tri-Ply material. A core of aluminium is sandwiched between two layers of premium-grade stainless steel, cleverly combining the cooking benefits of both materials. The aluminium stretches from base to rim, meaning heat spreads evenly and gently throughout the entire pan, not just the base.

Private Label Ranges

The Wilkinson family has been providing global retailers with houseware products they have been proud enough to label up as their own, for well over 50 years. Prior to this of course, the retailers were stocking our branded products. In the last 15 years, the housewares supplier base broadened and strengthened in China. In 2005, Ian Wilkinson made a personal commitment to relocate to this growing economy to be best positioned to use the company’s 130 year experience, to facilitate and ensure the production and reliable supply of high quality cookware and bakeware from China.

Wilkinson 1888’s company values are adopted and embedded within our loyal, long-serving Chinese team headed by Nicole Huang. Their knowledge and experience of Chinese houseware manufacturing industries is outstanding.

 

In return, we have invested in their development to ensure a team that is fully conversant with the high-level demands of direct supply to many global retailers. You can find more details on our various vendor management services on our Wilkinson China website www.wilkinsonchina.com

Our low company overheads also enable us to supply several large 3rd party distributors. In the last 15 years alone, we have successfully supplied out of China, over 40 retail companies across the USA, Europe, Canada, Asia and Australia.

Whatever your cookware or bakeware sourcing requirement, you can trust us to provide you with and deliver, on a great value quote. We also commit to ongoing technical expert consultation and customer support, from initial enquiry stage through to post-delivery supplier performance reviews.

The Vulan Roaster®

The innovative, patented volcanic range in the base of this Vulcan Roasting Tin with Rack, channel heat and air upwards and around your food to create a kind of 360° ‘spit roast’ effect that sears, browns and crisps all over, resulting in beautifully cooked food without the need for turning. And the wide-barred rack elevates food, without it dropping though, so that any unhealthy fat drains into the base, ready to be poured away via the corner spout. Food doesn’t sit in fat, like it does with traditional roasters, so beautifully crisp results are a given. It’s perfect for roast pork and crackling, cracking for chicken and brilliant for bacon and pizza – try it once and you’ll never use another roaster.

Features of the The Vulan Roaster®

  • 360° heat circulation for ‘spit roast’ effect
  • Heat flows up through the ‘volcanic ranges’ in the tin base
  • Get beautifully crisp results
  • Pouring nose for fat and juices
  • Versatile and dishwasher safe
  • PTFE and PFOA Free
  • Over safe to 230°C

Caring for a Lifetime Guarantee

Your Naked cookware has enjoyed an initial pre-seasoning all over, but to preserve and enhance it, you should carefully follow the instructions below.  The more you love and use your pan, the older and browner it looks. However, every use deepens the seasoning and improves the natural non-stick layer. A natural carbon steel chef will take pride in the many unique and irregular patterns formed. Enjoy the beauty of imperfection!

First Love – Before First Use, Carefully Follow These Instructions:

  1. Firstly, wash the cookware in warm soapy water and dry thoroughly.
  2. Wipe a small amount of cooking oil all over the interior of the pan.
  3. Open your windows before placing the pan on the hob over high heat. Heat until the fat begins to “smoke”.
  4. Remove the carbon steel pan from the heat and allow to cool. Wipe away any excess oil with a paper towel. The browned slippery surface that you cannot easily wipe off, is the seasoning. You can now use the pan immediately or store ready for use, in a dry place.

Long Term Nurturing – How to Use and Care For Your NAKED Cookware:

  1. When frying, add cooking oil and start with a high heat to seal the food, then reduce the heat, as required.
  2. With each use of your pan, the nonstick patina will improve provided that, in the washing process, you only remove any cooking residue and do not scrub off the patina.
  3. Wiping the pan with a light vegetable oil, after washing and before storage will help protect the pan from corrosion.
  4. If, after many months of usage, the patina becomes too thick, then purify the pan by putting a generous amount of course cooking salt into the pan and warm using a gentle heat. With a thick wad of paper towel, rub the salt around the pan to gently exfoliate the excess patina. Empty out the contents and give the pan a final wipe over with a clean paper towel, ready for immediate use or storage in a dry place.

Note: Carbon steel cookware is not dishwasher safe, so be sure to always wash by hand. If at any time rust appears on your pan, then scrub with a hard brush to remove the rust and reapply vegetable oil to the affected area. It is now ready to use or to store in a dry place.
