Amerock Kitchen Hardware

Amerock kitchen hardware is some of the best hardware in the kitchen industry, especially if you choose the styles that are protected by Amerock's Guardian Lifetime Finish.

Amerock kitchen hardware should be one of your first choices when looking for hardware, especially decorative kitchen hardware.  The photo at left features some of Amerock's Porter Collection.

When we built and installed kitchen cabinets, we almost exclusively used Amerock decorative kitchen hardware.  We only rarely used something else, and if we did, it was from Belwith-Keeler (another fine company, especially when you are looking for specialty handles, like antique or animals, etc).

A testimonial from us, not only did we use Amerock kitchen hardware for 15 years in the cabinet industry with no problems, we have Amerock decorative kitchen hardware throughout our home.  We built our house in 2000, and have never had a problem with any of the handles we have tarnishing or breaking (of course, we purchased the ones with the Guardian Lifetime Warranty).  They look just like the day we installed them.  See our sister site The Woodworkers Depot to order Amerock Hardware online.

To keep your handles and knobs looking new, just clean with warm soap and a mild detergent when needed.

TOP 10 REASONS TO CHOOSE AMEROCK (okay, technically 11, but 2 of them are very similar!!)?

  • Durability.
  • Their handles and knobs just feel good to grip.
  • They have several appliance pulls to choose from (if you need that sort of thing).
  • Have literally thousands of handles, styles, and finishes.
  • Several of the handles have a Guardian Lifetime Finish - guaranteed to never tarnish.  Look for these handles first if you plan on staying in your home a while and don't want to be replacing handles due to tarnishing.
  • They come with 8/32" x 1" screws included for installation.
  • Amerock hardware is guaranteed to be free of defects.
  • Amerock Corp., around since 1929 and now part of the Newell Rubbermaid Company, works to develop new and innovative styles continuously that reflect today's kitchen designs.
  • In other words, not only do they have lots to choose from, some of it is pretty contemporary as well as traditional.  They keep the time-honored classic styles, as well as developing new designs.
  • For the most part, Amerock Kitchen Hardware is very reasonably priced.
  • A few of their most popular styles of kitchen knobs, they have developed into passage and privacy door knobs and levers for the home (Their Amerock Ensembles Collection - pictured at right.)  This allows you to have the same style of door knobs as your kitchen knobs, however, each door knob to match your kitchen knobs will easily cost $40.00 or more, so probably won't be suitable for the budget conscious. 


Amerock has a very reasonably priced line of kitchen hardware called Allison.  The line includes a large variety of designs, multiple finishes, and affordability, but few have a Guardian Lifetime finish.  You do get what you pay for.  The Allison Collection's benefits are that it looks beautiful and is very inexpensive. (Pictured at right is a handle from the Allison Metals Collection A00174 Polished Brass). 


You can easily get some really nice Amerock kitchen hardware for $3.00 to $6.00 per handle (knobs are usually a bit less).  Be sure to ask or check where you purchase your handles to ensure the handles or knobs you've selected have the Guardian Lifetime Finish.  If they don't they will likely tarnish over time.

Some Amerock kitchen hardware lines are more expensive, but they are also usually more sophisticated and unique, like their Galleria line which often resembles art (like the photo at right, of the Galleria A53045 SKI (Silver Black). 

Or, the material to manufacture the handles is just that much more expensive, such as their Stainless Steel, Brass, Appliance handles, or several of there European inspired designs, like the Essential'z handle A19204 G10 pictured at left.



First, you should select a finish that you'd like to go with, for example polished brass or oil rubbed bronze.  Make sure it is something that will fit your decor.

Next, choose a style or design.  Design trends that Amerock kitchen hardware focus on are contemporary, casual, whimsical, European country, and traditional.  They have several collections within each of these general design trend areas.

Then, you need to decide what size meets your needs.  Most handles commonly have 3" centers.  If you are replacing hardware, you will need to know what size you have now.

Finally, choose what you like.  What looks great to you and what feels right.  The photo below is of Amerock's Divinity Collection, A0560 G9, Sterling Nickel. We also have this handle throughout our main bath at home. I just love it.


You can purchase Amerock kitchen hardware from several sources online, like The Woodworkers Depot, or from your local hardware store or home center.


The Amerock Corporation not only manufactures Amerock Kitchen Hardware, they also have Functional Hardware (such as hinges and lazy susans), hardware for storage, and vinyl windows, which they are expanding as well.

Enjoy your Amerock Kitchen Hardware. . .

and remember - Have a Happy Kitchen!!!
