About Rome


Rome is a 3 generation family business that has two main product lines; Outdoor Cookware and Garden Decor

Rome's Outdoor Cookware:
Rome has been making campfire memories since 1964 when we first started manufacturing our Original Pie Irons.  These cast iron cooking tools are designed to make sweet or savory toasted sandwiches and pies over an open fire. In the nearly 60 years that we’ve made them, Pudgie Pies (as people like to call them) have become an iconic part of the campfire and backyard fire pit experience.

In addition to our full range of unique Pie Iron designs, we also make various accessories for Pie Iron cooking.  We also have a selection of traditional cast iron waffle irons and the largest selection of marshmallow and hot dog folks in North America.

While Rome outdoor cookware is traditionally a campfire cooking brand, over the years more and more people use our products over the backyard fire pit as well as on barbecue grills.

Rome's Garden Decor:
Rome has been designing sundials and garden decor for nearly 60 years. With a specialty in solid brass, each original design is carefully hand poured using the ancient craft of sand mold casting. To compliment our dials, we offer a wide range of sundial pedestal bases. We also have a selection of stainless steel gazing globes and decor for the garden.

We mostly sell our cookware to specialty outdoor retailers as well as gift shops, campgrounds, RV stores, general stores and gourmet kitchen stores. Our garden decor is sold primarily to gift shops and garden centers. We have a permanent showroom at AmericasMart in Atlanta and invite you to meet us and see our products up close at the show.  

Rome’s warehouse is centrally located in Peoria, IL and our main office is in Madison, WI.  

All of our Pie Irons and cast iron cookware have a consumer friendly 10 year warranty.
