Member Exclusive Expires May 31st


Just a quick reminder that May is here and you still have until the end of the month to make use of the BCC 10th Anniversary Member Special!

Just copy and paste the code
 

LONG WINDING ROAD


when checking out at BCC.com and we'll lop 15% from your total. Please make sure you use the email address to which this newsletter was sent (since this is a mail list exclusive). The code will remain active through May 31, 2019.

This is our very first member special and while sales last month were off the hook we still have pretty good supply for most BCC items (although quite a number of you took advantage of the significant savings to pick up a Stocker; we're down to just six of that big boy!).

Once the code runs out we'll see what's left on our shelves and start planning our next production runs, likely for late June / early July, which leads me this month's next theme.

Time to Look at BCC Prices


We last adjusted prices two years ago and in the interim both labor and material prices have migrated steadily up, as have the costs of making our tooling (alone up over 35% since we milled our last handle casting plates three years ago). At the moment our partner foundry can only quote the specialized ductile iron we use for our handles in a wide range owing to huge volatility in the steel markets. The ongoing tariff regime has added an average of 25% to the material cost of our castings, and while we anticipate prices to remain elevated, we're hopeful the iron markets will settle back to more rational and predictable pricing before long.

Regarding the tightening labor pool, one of our goals in starting BCC was to make and sell a pure American, pure metal cooking tool and in so doing bring attention to the ancestral hand skills that made the tools that manifested this country's destiny. Our long game always foresaw everyone involved earning ever better wages for producing ever better and ever more popular pots and pans. We're not unhappy that our team's boat is finally rising.

BCC is not a high-margin nor a high-volume business, and we have no plans to be. Our chief intention is for every piece of BCC to represent "simply the finest cooking tools ever made". To keep at it we'll be adjusting BCC prices up between 10 and 15% before the end of July, 2019.

I feel it's important to remain as transparent as possible as we build our business and our relationship with all of you, which in our view extends way beyond just selling you copper cookware. BCC makes it easy to know what your cooking tools are made of. To eat what you cook is to know what you yourself are made of.
Thanks as ever for your continued faith and custom, and I hope you'll be in touch should there be anything at all we can help with.

Now, grab yourself some fine cooking tools and save 15% until May 31st. Just visit brooklyncoppercookware.com.
