Mathilde E. Heuck, a renowned cook and homemaker, once traveled the world seeking ideas and recipes to improve the American kitchen. In 1922, she finally found the kind of brilliant idea she was looking for. Taking a few nails and a piece of string from her husband’s tool box, Mathilde created the famous Heuck Turkey Lacer. This innovation made the preparation of delicious poultry dressing easier for cooks and homemakers everywhere. Millions of Turkey Lacers have been sold over the years, making it one of Heuck’s most popular products. Since it’s establishment in 1922, M. E. Heuck Co. has expanded its product line to include more than 500 separate items. Each of these products were designed with Mathilde’s original mission in mind -- to simply improve the American kitchen. Their product line includes a variety of popular items including: non-stick and stainless cookware, kitchen tools and gadgets, nutcrackers, seafood items, and Fall seasonal offerings.
