Farber set up a shop in Manhattan where he started a small business making bowls and vases out of hand-pounded sheets of copper and brass. Since that time the Farberware company has grown exponentially; in 1930 they introduced their first line of percolators adding small appliances to the list of items for which they were already known. In today's market Farberware is valued for its product innovation.
