National Presto Industries Inc., was founded in Eau Claire, Wis., in 1905 as Northwestern Steel and Iron Works, maker of industrial-size pressure canners for commercial canneries. Ten years later, it began manufacturing large pressure canners for home use. In 1939, the company introduced the first saucepan-style pressure cooker and gave it the trade name "Presto." Since then, the company has expanded its product line to include a wide variety of popular cooking gadgets, including electric griddles, pressure cookers, pizza ovens, deep fryers, and more.
