MCWARE, the Magnalite Alternative

Just like your MawMaw
used to cook in!

Magnalite has not been produced since the early 1990s, however Cajun Classic Cookware produces McWare, which has become known as the “new Magnalite” since it’s introduction in 1999. McWare was originally produced and distributed by Michael R. McGee from Mamou, Louisiana. He coined the term McWare by combining his last name McGee “MC” with the “Ware” in cookware and created the McWare brand. McWare pots have been purchased, used and loved in kitchens all across Louisiana since 1999. You will not find McWare in big box stores, because Cajun Classic Cookware’s focus and support are for the Mom and Pop stores struggling to compete with the influx of big box stores.

Gary Matte Hardware Is Proud To Be A Distributor and To Now Offer These Pots For Purchase Online.
