Copper food molds have been in use since the days when every middle class American household had a small kitchen staff, and dinners were served in courses. The designs on the decorative molds indicate the course for which they were intended; a cook would never use the fish mold for a rice timbale or a pineapple-shaped mold for the meat loaf. These days, cooking is more likely to involve the different colored lids on plastic microwave containers, but old-fashioned copper molds make a warm and nostalgic addition to any kitchen's decor. It is simple to hang copper molds, because they all come with attached hooks.

Using Thermal-Mould trade; copper mold materials as inserts will reduce the need for water lines, thus lowering tool design and machining costs. Nonferrous' proprietary cross-grain forging and heat treatment processes result in uniform physical properties, excellent polish-ability and improved machining characteristics.
