Oscarware is a family-owned manufacturing business, founded in 1989 by Debra Dudley and her late husband Reg Dudley. Sensing the anything-can-be-grilled trend, they invented a new product they called “grill topper” making it possible to cook a variety of meals on an outdoor grill.
The original grill topper product transformed the traditional backyard barbeque menu from hamburgers and hotdogs to delicate fish, fresh vegetables and pizza. Grillers got creative with non-traditional foods starting new grilling trends. The company has continued to develop new topper products now offering a complete line of both disposable and gourmet porcelain coated steel toppers, woks and griddles.
All products are made in Bonnieville, a city of less than 300 people in south central Kentucky. Oscarware is the leading domestic manufacturer of both disposable and porcelain coated steel toppers.in the U.S. Debra and her daughter Kelly Dudley Busick, Vice President, manage the company today. Oscarware has grown to 32 employees and distributes product all across the U.S and Europe.
