Here's A Video I Made For You Of Some Of My Littonware
Littonware was produced in the 70s and 80s for a variety of purposes and came in a large selection of shapes and sizes. If you have Littonware and are curious to check how much it is worth, I would suggest going to Ebay and taking a look. I generally come across Littonware fairly easily and it is usually in good shape still. This stuff was really built to last. Although it can be brittle if you abuse it, it is generally very tough. Littonware is made of some sort of a plastic material that is built to survive microwaves and ovens and is rated for temperatures up to 400 degrees!
Littonware Microwave Cookware
Perhaps you have come across Littonware at a tag sale. Maybe you have some Littonware at a tag sale of your own and you don't know what it is or what it is worth. I am here to settle a few things for readers who may be curious.
Littonware all started with the Litton microwave oven. During the 70's and 80's microwave ovens gained in popularity, resulting in several different microwave cookware. Anchor hocking made some as well, most notably perhaps was the bacon rack. Looking back now, it seems like a silly idea right? Another popular name was Nordicware, which came out with tons of stuff for microwave cooking. They even came out with a bundt cake mold for your microwave...
Vintage cookware is very collectible now because they don't make it anymore. Since these have seen a lot of use over the years, and their numbers are slowly shrinking, there is no doubt that their value will continue to go up. The smaller the piece, the more common it is and the lower value it has. I have never come across a Litton oven but I am still holding out hope for that day!
When I do come across these, I usually get them for less than $3 each thanks to goodwill and salvation army. At tag sales I have seen them go for at little as 25 cents! This is a great deal considering I can sell pieces individually for over $20 plus shipping. The best piece I have ever found was the largest square casserole which I sold for over $40 plus shipping. Keep an eye out for these if you are a treasure hunter, and if you have one in your possession, don't let it go for $3, (unless you are selling it to me.)
