In late 2004, the Cookware Manufacturers Association Board of Directors began an initiative to offer to retail buyers a comprehensive series of educational papers. Many buyers come to their positions with little direct experience with cookware and bakeware. The CMA’s Buyer Learning Tools cover cooking methods (essential to understanding the other topics), materials, manufacturing methods, coatings and finishes and handles and their attachments, among other topics.
Each of the learning tools is self-contained. As a pdf file it can be easily downloaded to a computer or PDA device for study.
The CMA is an independent and authoritative source for information on cookware and bakeware, serving cookware manufacturers and marketers, retailers and consumers since 1922. For more information, call (616) 987-3520 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
