The Story Behind Kohler Cast Iron Baths

Kohler is a family-owned company that has been producing high-quality plumbing products for over 140 years. The company was started by John Michael Kohler in 1873 when he decided to take a horse trough and apply an enameled powder coat to his invention. He then added four legs to create the first enameled cast iron bath. Since then, Kohler cast iron baths have been designed to last a lifetime.

How Kohler Cast Iron Baths Are Made

Kohler purchases scrap metal from many vendors, and brings the scrap metal to their foundry as the first step in forging bath and kitchen fixtures, trim, and other products. The cast iron baths are made from at least 80% recycled materials, including old pots and pans, car parts, dishwashers, and more. First, the iron is melted in an enormous furnace where all impurities are removed before being poured into molds. From that point, Kohler begins molding and shaping the iron into bathtubs.


Kohler’s cast iron baths are incredibly durable. Cast iron is a strong material, and the enamel is resistant to chipping and cracking. As a result, the bathtubs will last a long time while maintaining their aesthetics. In addition, Kohler cast iron baths to come with the peace of mind of a Limited Lifetime Warranty.


Kohler’s cast iron baths have a timeless style relevant to today’s homeowners. Cast iron baths are available in various shapes and sizes, so you can find one that fits your space perfectly. Kohler offers a beautiful assortment of cast iron baths perfect for any style or décor, including the following collections:

  • Artifacts
  • Bellwether
  • Tea for Two
  • Iron Works

Many options are available, including alcove and drop-in baths, and freestanding tubs, and many comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.


Kohler carefully considers ergonomic details and consumer experiences with every bath design. For example, Kohler designs the lumbar supports to accommodate many body types. At the same time, the slope of the baths facilitates both a comfortable upright and lounging position. Each piece is a genuine, handcrafted fingerprint that is truly one of a kind, the result of an artisanal process.
