  • A Good Deal

    Posted on May 15, 2012

    You modern folk have it as nice as pie when it comes to getting a good deal on a purchased good—there’s all kinds of discounts and vouchers to be found. Why, back in my day getting a good deal meant bargaining and trading one item for another, often with a shifty eyed huckster who would try to pass off bottled tea for decades old whiskey.

    That’s why I like to make it easy for my customers to get themselves a price break on my products, the easy way: just sign up for the Jacob Bromwell newsletter, which arrives at your email address every other month. Each issue contains a discount code or promotion on a particular item, and is chock full of fun historical tidbits o’ info about seasonal or American family traditions.

    So go on and click here and fill out your info to start receiving the Jacob Bromwell newsletter—you can thank ol’ Jacob later!

  • Day 5 of Jacob's Journey: Greater With a Grater

    Posted on May 9, 2012

    May 2, 1819


    Along the road out of Hagerstown, I met a group of men gathered around a campfire, and they invited me to stay for dinner. The cookie's name was Nathaniel Morgan, and I dare say he was the finest cook I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. He was a fubsy old coot, knee high to a grasshopper, with an evil eye and half an ear. But what he lacked in ears and demeanor he made up for in culinary mastery. He claimed to have learned everything about cookery between the start of Texas Revolution and the end of the Spanish-American War, picking up tips from survivalist soldiers and renowned chefs alike. After polishing off his pork, beans and cornbread he told me over a round of tequila, “Bromwell you old sonofagun, if you wanna be great, you gotta dance like you’ve got tabasco pumpin’ in yer veins. But if you wanna be greater... get a grater.” I will never forget his sage words.

    Now I know what to name the grater I bought along for the trip: Morgan’s Famous Grater. It's made the same way it was nearly two-hundred years ago. It features fine, medium, and coarse grating surfaces, plus a slicing surface, making you master of cheese and produce. You can request it finished in either stainless steel or original tin (my favorite, since it stays sharper longer).

    Next time you’re in the kitchen with inferior cookware, just think: Can my kitchen get any greater? Now it can, with Morgan’s Famous Grater.

  • New Products!

    Posted on May 7, 2012

    My team has been busy working through moonlight on some spanking new products that we feel will continue to bring a bit of American nostalgia to your household.

    First up, my personal favorite: the Great American Flask (pictured above.) This handcrafted copper flask looks so much like the one I took on my American travels that it's uncanny! It features an historically correct wooden stopper and is perfect for carrying your favorite beverage of choice anywhere (and if your drink of choice happens to be moonshine, well--your pal Jacob will keep that bit o'info on the downlow.) :)

    Next, the beautiful Old Country Pie Safe. Also made of copper, this here pie safe carries cakes, pies, cupcakes and more and features an iconic star design on the cover. It's sure to attract attention at your town picnic or family BBQ!

    Both the Great American Flask and Old Country Pie Safe are handmade to order and are exclusive only to Jacob Bromwell. You can find these items and many more on the Collectors section of our website.

    Lastly we have the Premium Salad Server Set. Handmade from solid American maple, these salad utensils are heavy duty for tossing and serving your favorite salad and are crafted with long, wide handles and hooks for easy storage.

    And like all of my products, these shiny new items are all made in the U.S.A. and satisfaction guaranteed--and that's no applesauce!
