I’ve often come across vintage aluminum kitchen items on my thrifting adventures but never knew much about where the items came from. I recently saw these canisters listed on Etsy and decided to do a little more searching online to discover some other mid-century aluminum treasures.


Kromex, a division of the Alcoa Aluminum Company, produced kitchenware and serve-ware from about 1957 through the early 60s. Products include kitchen canister sets, salt & pepper shakers,  spice sets, ice buckets, cake servers and more. Mid-century Kromex kitchen items come in a variety of colors such as yellow, black, pink and also copper.

Laura’s Classic Collectibles has a wide variety of Vintage Kromex items for sale that are in fabulous condition.

There is currently a large selection of Kromex available for sale on Ebay and as well.
