Medelco, Inc., founded in 1976, is a family owned and operated business. Elaine Robinson, Medelco’s president, is the daughter of the company’s founder, Walter Wolczek who invented their first product, the first talking scale for the blind. He also developed the first fetal pulse monitor and portable electrocardioscope; thus, the name derived from the company’s original product line - medical electronics.
In 1981 Medelco obtained patent rights for the universal coffee carafe plus a premier booth at the Chicago Housewares show from a distributor as settlement of its debt. The One All® brand was born. It is dedicated to making the lives of kitchen consumers easier, a useful, universal, high-quality, low cost product like their universal carafes that fit 90% of the coffee makers in use today. Their permanent coffee filters fit all coffee makers using standard filters. The Stovetop Whistling Tea Kettle and Stovetop Percolator are great stand-alone products designed to go from stovetop to tabletop. They created their Glass Cordless Electric Kettle, Scented Coffeemaker Cleaners and Reusable Single Serve Coffee Filter System, all made with a dedication to quality at an affordable price. Indeed, they will not deliver a product that they would not be proud to use in their own kitchens.
Medelco is a certified member of The Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), founded in 1997 and the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned, controlled, and operated by women in the United States. WBENC is the nation's leading advocate for women-owned businesses as suppliers to America's corporations.
Environmentally Friendly. Many of their products promote “Reduce & Re-Use.” If a consumer needs to replace a coffee carafe, their universal replacement carafes fit nearly 90% of the coffeemakers on the market – the consumer is not forced to purchase an entire new coffeemaker simply because the carafe is broken. Their permanent coffee filters encourage Re-Use of filters rather than disposal of paper filter products. Their single serve coffee filter system allows the consumer to brew their favorite brand of coffee as a great alternative to using the disposable prepackaged units. Their scented coffeemaker cleaners work great and are fully biodegradable, and all detergents and solvents meet both Green Seal and Echo Logo requirements.
