Hutch’s GraniteWare Roasting Pan — November 12, 1975

Hutch’s GraniteWare Roasting Pan

The black, white-speckled roasting pan Hutch uses to make the Paul Muni special for Starsky in the tag of 01-10 “Lady Blue” was one of those generic kitchen items I never expected to be possible to identify. But then Daisy Morgan realized that she has a newer version of that pan in her kitchen (and, like the true Starsky & Hutch fan that she is, then made a Paul Muni special in it). So now we know it’s a GraniteWare roasting pan! Thanks for this great tip, Daisy!

This roasting pan is apparently a real American classic, and if you want your own, it’s still in production!

“GraniteWare by Columbian Home Products has been a part of American kitchens for nearly 150 years. Our classic enamel coated cookware continues to be manufactured in our family owned, Terre Haute, Indiana factory as it has been since 1906. It is the original speckled cookware that has helped generations of families turn holiday feasts and everyday meals into cherished memories.”

Hutch’s Copper Bread Box — October 22, 1975

Hutch’s Copper Bread Box

This interesting copper bread box is seen as soon we’re invited to step into the kitchen of Hutch’s Canal Cottage in “The Pariah” (above). In the latter half of S1 it wanders around the counter, but returns to sit on top of the frigde when Hutch moves to Venice place.

It’s probably from the 1950s, and according to online auctions of similar items, it is marked “Krestline, Speco Products, Chicago, ILL”. The box has holes at the back for hanging on the wall.  In addition to the bread box, it has four small drawers: two large ones labeled for flour and sugar, and two small ones for coffee and tea. You can see the labels in this photo of an identical bread box from an online auction. The measurements are approximately 45.5 cm x 26 cm x 31 cm).
