Formerly named J. Chein & Co., this New Jersey based company had been a well-known maker of tin toys. When the popularity of that product line declined, Cheinco Housewares emerged as a manufacturer of metal pantryware, mainly storage items, like canisters and other types of tins.
These products can be found with popular Corelle, Corning Ware and Pyrex patterns, and most of them seem to be genuine designs, possibly produced under licence.

The Spice O' Life and Old Orchard versions are look-alikes rather than exact copies. Cheinco named the latter "Spice Garden".
