The Oster Company, manufacturer and retailer of small appliances, was founded in 1924 by John Oster. By the 1960s, the company was developing and marketing new items such as the fondue pot and chafing dish. As part of their advertising effort, Super Pan was created as a clever superhero who fought boredom at mealtime. Comic books and buttons were widely available to attract the attention of children, and thus their parents, to the brand and products.
