Dear Ms. Curbelo:

In your letter dated February 18, 1998, received in this office on May 4, 1998, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The merchandise consists of a number of aluminum pots (calderos, items 113-03-0124, 113-03-0126, 113-03-0128, 113-03-0132, and 113-03-0138). They are made of cast aluminum and do not have a non-stick interior coating. The pots come with a cover with a plastic button handle.

The applicable subheading for the pots will be 7615.19.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for table, kitchen or other household articles, of aluminum, other, cooking ware, not enameled or glazed and not containing non-stick interior finishes, cast.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
