Due to its smooth, non-porous surface made of glass, enamel is bacteria inhibiting and is easy to clean. With right care and use it can last for a lifetime and become a family heirloom and your dishes will look new for generations to come.
- Use the smooth side of the cleaning sponge or a soft brush for cleaning.
- Avoid wire brushes, steel wool, scouring powder containing sand and cleaning sponges with ceramic particles this can scratch the surface.
- When using the dishwasher, select the glass washing programme. We recommend washing by hand for long enjoyment of the radiant shine of enamel.
- Dry the cookware well. Any lime spots can effortlessly be removed with vinegar water.
- Do not use heavy duty cleaning products and harsh chemicals when cleaning, enamelware can easily be cleaned with a simple combination of lime juice and baking soda.
- What appear to be scratches in the enamel could be marks left by metal tools: streaks of metallic residue, which have caused little or no damage to the underlying enamel. Enamel is much harder than stainless steel, you can scrub the marks with a gentle cleaning compound.
- Enameled steel is incredibly strong, but the glass top coat will chip if handled too roughly or dropped onto hard surfaces (revealing the steel frame underneath) remember it is still safe to eat from your enamelware dishes even if the steel underneath the glass is exposed.
- During the production process of enamelware products are hung for drying and firing under their rims therefore flash rust can appear in these areas, they can be easily removed with a damp cloth.
- There are small holes to allow gas to escape on models with hollow handles. Here the air can escape during firing. The little bubbles are part of the enameling process.
- There may be seams on the inside of the handle. Basic enamel leaks outwards slightly during firing, and a thin line appears this is part of the enamelling process.
Contrasting colours and patterns create a surprising composition and part of its appeal is that each design is unique.
Enamelware is a time honoured and a time consuming process made by fusing glass onto heavy-gauge steel. Raw steel bodies are machine mulled or hand-formed, glazed and then kiln fired to create a smooth surface.
We fire our products using a traditional kiln which creates very high firing temperatures. Depending on where an individual item is placed in the kiln, the degree impacts the colour intensity of the product giving each design a unique beauty and a point of difference.
Every piece is hand made individually. The patterns differ on each item showing the marks of its journey. We see these differences as something special that gives our products a unique character to be enjoyed over time.
