This is an electric cooking pot by Rena Ware which dates to the 1960’s.  It has been thoroughly cleaned and now shines like new.  Heavy stainless steel construction.  Waterless cookware. Lid has 2 vent holes.  I took the whole thing apart and cleaned under all the handles to ensure it was ready to use.  In great condition overall for its age with only minor wear.

I found this information on the Rena Ware Website http://renaware.com/company/our-history/. They are still in business today and going strong.

The Rena Ware story began when Dutch immigrant Fred “Pop” Zylstra and his wife Rena founded Rena Ware in 1941, choosing “water-less” cookware as the company’s core product and adopting a business model that would help others improve their lives. For over 70 years, Rena Ware has remained true to the principles upon which it was founded: honesty, integrity, courage, and the Golden Rule.

Cooking “Water-Less”

“Water-less” cooking means cooking food in the least possible amount of water—never boiling. It keeps the flavors fresh and intense. The food is cooked over low heat in specially designed utensils with self-basting covers that hold in steam and drench the food with its own flavorful goodness. Foods retain their natural essences, making vegetables tender and luscious, and meats succulent and juicy.
