Enamelware - Care instructions
We love enamelware because:
- The enamel surface is applied by hand. The design is then applied by hand and then re-fired.
- Minor surface imperfections and unfinished edges/rims are a normal result of the metalworking and the enameling process. These are not quality issues, it is the natural characteristics of enamelware and that’s what makes it special and unique.
- Do not use your enamelware in the microwave. Remember there is metal/steel under the enamel.
- Do not scrub with abrasive materials on the enamel surfaces. Remove stains and burned-on grease with a soap-filled scouring pad or sponge.
- Use sharp-edged metal utensils with care to prevent scratching.
- Do not allow enamelware to boil dry. It may damage the surface.
- If enamelware should be left empty on a hot burner or in a heated oven, switch off and allow to cool slightly before adding liquid.
- Enamel is very durable but it will chip if handled too roughly.
- Dishwasher safe (preferably on a light/glass cycle to keep the design bright and shiny). After dishwashing or hand washing, be sure to dry the underside of the rims to avoid any rusting.
- Avoid wire brushes, steel wool, scouring powders.
With proper care and love your enamelware should last for many enjoyable years to come. Beautiful and durable.
