Russian immigrant Simon Farber began S.W.Farber company in 1897 when he began making gift racks and trays. The company became official in 1900. Farber began selling matchsticks, later moving to Brooklyn and manufactured a clamp-on light.
Everything changed in 1944 when the company moved to the Bronx and began manufacturing stainless steel pots and pans they called Farberware. During WWII the company made small arms for the government. Simon’s nephew, Sam Farber, joined the company after serving his time in the war.
By 1995, Farberware was one of the largest producers of stainless steel cookware in the US.
Today, the company makes and sells a variety of kitchen and cookware. The Neat Nest Stacking Nonstick Frying Pan was labeled as excellent by Consumer Reports in January 2020.
Farberware’s corporate office is located in Needham, Massachusetts.
