  • Coming Soon: Our Artisan Edition Flask Collection

    Posted on November 5, 2015


    Santa's helpers have been awfully busy lately in my made in America workshop! This is just a sneak peak of the many new items we'll be rolling out in the coming weeks, just in time for the holiday shopping season. These beauties here are part of our Artisan Edition Flask collection. We took our best selling Vermonter Flask and added a unique detailed finish to each one to give it a personality as distinctive as the individual that drinks from it. Some of the flasks in the collection include the Golden Treasure Edition Flask, Marble Splash Edition Flask, and Dancing Flame Edition Flask.


    Only 25 copies of each flask will be made available, so when these are released be sure you order yours before they become a Bromwell tradition for someone else! Stay tuned for more new and exciting made in USA goodies from Jacob Bromwell.

  • Caring for Copper Products

    Posted on October 15, 2015


    By now, you probably know that Jacob Bromwell specializes in beautiful American made copper items for the home and campsite, and maybe you own a few. But do you know how to care for your copper products so that they stay as shining as a brand new penny?


    One of the reasons my factories churn out so many copper products is because for a luxurious looking metal, it is surprisingly easy to care for. Since copper is a metal that oxidizes over time form contact with air (and will oxidize faster in humid air) it develops a tarnish that dulls its finish. The tarnish can be easily removed using any approved copper polish, including the one Jacob Bromwell sells. If the item has a surface that comes into contact with food or drink item then follow up the polishing with warm, soapy water, rinse, and you're done!


    There are also several common food items in your kitchen that you could use as a polish substitute that do an equally dandy job removing tarnish with all natural ingredients. First, you can dissolve one teaspoon of salt in one cup of white vinegar, then add enough flour to make a paste. Apply the paste to your copper product and let it sit for a minimum of 15 minutes and up to one hour. Rinse with warm water, and dry.


    You can also make a paste of lemon juice and cream of tartar, apply it to the product for five minutes, then rinse with warm water and dry.


    Another option is to make a paste of lemon juice and salt and rub it over the copper product with a soft cloth. Again, rinse and dry. A lemon slice dipped in baking soda and rubbed over the copper surface will work as well!


    And that's all there is to it! Polishing up your copper products 3-4 times a year will keep them sparkling and looking brand new for decades to come! You can see all of the American made copper products we make here.

  • Celebrate National Coffee Day Everyday with Jacob Bromwell

    Posted on September 29, 2015


    There's nothing else like the aroma and taste of a freshly made cup of coffee in the morning, or any time of the day. Today is National Coffee Day, a day we celebrate the drink that gets our engine humming in the morning. As it turns out, coffee's roots in America date back to 1670. That's when Bostonian Dorothy Jones was granted a license to sell coffee, and became America's first coffee trader. By 1688, coffee was the breakfast beverage of choice in New York City, replacing beer.


    Today, Americans are the world’s biggest consumer of the caffeinated beverage and the average person drinks three cups daily. And today, Jacob Bromwell is proud to make the Lewis & Clark Coffee Pot, a glorious copper kettle that holds seven cups of your favorite java. My coffee pot is handcrafted from pure copper and hasn’t changed since we first started making it in 1819. It promises to bring a touch of early Americana to your kitchen and dining room table and like all of my products, it’s proudly make here in the USA.


    So have an extra cup today and raise it to the drink that may not have originated from the U.S., but has surely won over the hearts of Americans everywhere!
