The One All brand of coffee and kitchen accessories is manufactured by Medelco, Incorporated.
Medelco, Inc., founded in 1976, is a family owned and operated business. Elaine Robinson, Medelco’s president, is the daughter of the company’s founder, Walter Wolczek. Walter was the inventor of the talking scale, Medelco’s first product.
In addition to adding voice to the digital scale, resulting in the first talking scale for the blind, Walter was responsible for developing the first fetal pulse monitor and portable electrocardioscope. Thus, the name Medelco is derived from the company’s original product line – medical electronics.
In 1981, one of our distributors closed up shop. In exchange for the debt owed, the distributor gave Medelco the patent rights for the universal coffee carafe as well as their premier booth location at the Chicago Housewares show. The One All® brand was born!
One All is dedicated to making the lives of kitchen consumers easier. We strive to create useful, universal, high-quality, low cost products. Our universal carafes fit 90% of the coffee makers in use today. Our permanent coffee filters fit all coffee makers using standard filters. The Stovetop Whistling Tea Kettle and Stovetop Percolator are great stand alone products designed to go from stovetop to tabletop. The newest additions to the One All product line are the Glass Cordless Electric Kettle, Scented Coffeemaker Cleaners as well as the Reusable Single Serve Coffee Filter System.
All of our products are made with an unparalleled dedication to quality at an affordable price. In fact, we will not deliver a product that we would not be proud to use in our own kitchens!

Our office and nearly 70,000 square foot manufacturing facility is located at 54 Washburn Street, Bridgeport, CT. Medelco’s manufacturing, assembly, shipping and receiving has taken place at this location since 1990. Medelco also maintained front offices in Trumbull, CT; however, in an effort to streamline operations and reconnect the office and manufacturing operations, Medelco relocated its office facility to the manufacturing facility in June, 2008.
Our facility layout consists of zones with separate, distinct purposes. These zones include component and packaging storage, production and assembly lines, assembled product warehousing and shipping & receiving areas. During production, our staff operates with over 200 linear feet of conveyor system for assembly of carafes, percolators, kettles and filters. This assembly includes use of state-of-the-art pneumatic fasters, adhesive applicators and packaging heat tunnels. We also maintain corrugated compactors for baling and recycling of nearly 40 tons of corrugated and paper materials every year. The vast floor area, along with high ceiling heights, allows us to maintain proper organization and inventory efficiencies.
Our facility is ideally located immediately adjacent to Interstate-95. This proximity allows for ease of trucking access which results in shipping/receiving economies for us and our customers. The shipping and receiving facilities include 4 loading docks and 1 drive-in overhead door. These facilities are strategically located at separate portions of the building – this allows us to accommodate the various tasks including loading/unloading of product components as well as shipping of finished products.
