About Us

~ Heirloom Quality Products for Heirloom Living ~

Heirloom Living is a small, woman-owned business dedicated to offering high quality American made products. We are delighted to call Wisconsin home - a state rich in history, the birthplace of many great businesses and products, and realm of countless proud cheese heads. We humbly take our place among the people and businesses in this great state.

At Heirloom Living, we are passionate about offering high quality products that are made right here in the USA. Some might call us naive, claiming that the United States is no longer capable of competing in manufacturing, but we believe that our country still has a fighting chance. We believe that this country offers immense skill, talent, and perseverance.

Our focus is on the quality that American-made offers, rather than a burgeoning bottom-line. Our products are made using only high-grade, food-safe materials, in accordance with standardized and certified processes. We won't use inferior materials to boost our bottom line. We won't go offshore to get a better deal. We take high quality seriously and go to great lengths to ensure a superior product that will last you for years. 

And, while it may seem that our products are more expensive, it really comes down to quality and durability. If you compare our products to other cheaper versions, you will find that it's not an apples-to-apples comparison at all. As with most products, you really do get what you pay for. When you buy Heirloom Living products, you're getting heirloom quality products designed to last you for years.


Our Silicone

All silicone is NOT created equal. To reduce costs, some manufacturers add fillers to their silicone products, some use inefficient curing processes which can leave contaminants, and some products aren't really silicone at all.

Nearly all silicone cooking products are made overseas, where standards are not as stringent as they are in the United States. What's more, even FDA approved food-grade silicone is permitted to have additives considered safe for human consumption. This allows for fillers to be used to lower the costs of production. This also reduces the quality. If you want to know what the FDA allows in food-grade silicone, check out their regulations here. While considered safe, we prefer to avoid these chemicals altogether. 

Fortunately, there is an easy way to tell if your silicone has fillers: twist or fold a flat surface on the silicone. If white shows through or the silicone lightens in color (as shown in the images above), the product likely contains fillers. Pure silicone does not change color when twisted or pulled (as shown in the images below). Additionally, pure silicone won't have an odor.

At Heirloom Living, Inc, we believe that the best quality silicone should be the only kind that comes in contact with your food. That is why our silicone is made in the USA using superior grade materials. Our manufacturing systems are as rigorous as are our demands for purity and quality.

Our silicone is 100% medical-grade silicone, typically reserved for medical devices. It has no fillers, no contaminants, and no questionable chemicals. It is safe up to 800° F and will not crack, peel, stain, or melt. And because it is manufactured in the USA, the manufacturing standards are enforced, and our quality is assured.
