The Kitchen Store at JK Adams is the first and only retailer in Vermont to carry the celebrated Made In cookware brand.

Made In is motivated by their 100-year family history in kitchen supply, as they set out to rethink the kitchen landscape. In their work, they have partnered with the best raw material providers and multi-generational, family-owned manufacturers in the USA and Europe to build superior culinary tools. With the guidance of the world’s finest chefs, Made In products are designed to perform and crafted to last.

Made In Marketing Director, Lindsay Jackson noted, “JK Adams is in its 80th year, which is a milestone in itself—but they’re not resting on their laurels. They are inventive and bringing in innovative partners with the product they sell to their communities.”

The result is cookware worthy of a spot in both Michelin-starred restaurants and home kitchens. The brand always says, “No matter the meal, what it’s made in, matters.”

Starting off as a direct-to-consumer brand, Made In has over 100,000 five-star reviews online. They recently surpassed 2,000 restaurant customers around the world, further cementing their credibility in the culinary community.

“We were thrilled to have Made In co-founder Jake Kalick visit us in person,” says JK Adams Marketing Director, Sean Osborne. “As a native New Englander, he asked to tour our factory and our flagship store. Now his brand is part of that same store, and we couldn’t be prouder.”

In a letter to JK Adams, Kalick stated, “We look forward to an exciting adventure ahead and a long-term partnership with you.”

Now the public can shop the Made In collection in Dorset, Vermont and start cooking like a professional. On the factory level of the 3-story flagship store, you can find top collections such as the Enameled Cast Iron, “Chef-Favorite” Stainless Clad Cookware and the “Indestructible” Carbon Steel, to name a few.

The Kitchen Store at JK Adams flagship manager, Megan Long, is excited to bring this line to New England. She stated, “With their strong social media presence and marketing knowhow this brand is a great addition to the Kitchen Store.”

“Even if you’re not a professional chef, having that equipment immediately makes you better,” says Grant Achatz, Chef and restauranteur. “It makes cooking so much easier.”

The world’s finest Enameled Cast Iron hails from Northeast France, where craftsmen have been pouring professional-grade cast iron since the early 1920s. Their Stainless Clad Cookware is crafted by manufacturing partners in Italy who specialize in high-quality metalworking. It can sear even the most delicate proteins to perfection, and because it’s oven-safe up to 800F, can also smoothly transition from stovetop to oven. Plus, it features a Stay-Cool™ handle that minimizes burn risk, even during high-heat cooking.

Their Carbon Steel begins in the hands of Swedish metalworking artisans, who punch the body of each pan from a single sheet of metal that has undergone heat treatment to guarantee even cooking and corrosion resistance. Their Seasoned Carbon Steel Frying Pans allow you to take advantage of Carbon Steel's cooking potential from day one—and the seasoning will only improve the more you use it, becoming more and more reliably nonstick.  To order Made In today please visit us in Dorset, Vermont or call our store at 866-362-4422.
