We had Revereware my MIL passed to my hubby which we passed to our daughter. It still looks great. And that's interesting about the factory and the sign! I'll have to see if my in-laws know about this one. They seem to know about everything else around here.
Embrace the plateaus. They are your body's way of adjusting to the new you!
Looks like the sign was bought in 2017 for another restoration attempt. I don't know how old my oldest Revereware is -- my mother gave me some second hand pots in 1968. Not here personal ones -- these were from a second hand store.
I've had Revere ware for years and it's still in good condition. The factory was located in New Bedford, Ma. and my brother in law worked there for years. Plus they had a store near the Bourne bridge on Cape Cod. Another bit of info: Their neon sign of Paul Revere was taken down from the factory and placed on Highway 195 in Dartmouth, Ma. The sign has since been taken down. I don't know where it is now. Revere wear, if taken care of, can last forever.

I think about the only time that Revereware isn't safe is on some of the newer conduction glass tops. If your Revereware has an uneven bottom surface, it may tend to collect small bits of moisture between in and the glass stove top. The 'dancing' hot water may tilt the pot a bit on high temps. If you're within the distance of these hot water bits, you may get a small burn.

Indeed I got a reply from the company. It seems that the pot is safe to use despite the pitting. Here's their email:
"Thank you for contacting World Kitchen, LLC.
"Over time, it is the nature of metal to pit. For this reason, our cookware is not warranted against pitting. It is an uncontrollable, natural occurrence. There are some measures you can take to minimize pitting in your cookware. Only add salt to your water after it has come to a boil. The more salt or acidic based foods you cook in your cookware, the more likely it will be to pit. Your cookware is still safe for use and the marks will not affect the performance of your cookware.
"For further assistance, please contact our Consumer Care Center at 800-999-3436. Representatives are available from 8am to 5pm, EST, Monday through Friday, and will be more than happy to assist you."
I will call their center just to be sure that the written response isn't what they send to all questions regardless of the types of metals used for different product lines.

This seems the only remotely related board for my question.
I have a few pieces of my mother's Revereware stainless pots with copper bottoms (1950's or perhaps 1940's), in good condition. A friend recently gave me an equally old piece that had been his mother's. The bottom of the interior is marked with many small, black dots. I feel them when I run my index finger over them.
Does the pitting make the pot unsafe to use? If the answer is "yes and no," please spell out the details. I've googled and found no reference specific to these pots. I've also sent a "contact us" at the current mfr's website, but don't expect a useful reply; the site is clearly intended to sell merchandise rather than provide backup.
