Make it easy for yourself while entertaining this summer. Have dinner with family outdoors without the worry. Forget about the plastic utensils, and feel at home when camping. All of this is possible with the new collection of enamelware products at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.
Pictured here to the left is our Enamelware Canister Set, which is entirely food safe. Offering a retro look to your kitchen, you can organize in style. Store your coffee, sugar, tea and flour in these cute, white enamelware canisters with contrasting red trim. Featuring graduating sizes of 1, 2, 2.5 and 3 quart capacity. The canisters are first stamped out of steel then hand dipped and hand splattered. Additionally, this set would make an appropriate housewarming or wedding gift. If you like this design, consider our matching Enamelware Butter Dish.
What is enamelware you ask? Enamel is an applied coating that safeguards different materials, such as aluminum or steel. Enamelware is referred to as items that have a porcelain (a hard translucent white ceramic) and enamel finish. Enamelware is popular in kitchen cookware and household items due to its durability, strength and non-stick, smooth surface.
Shown here to the left is our Enamelware Percolator. Also retro in style, this percolator features an alternate design of bright red with white speckling. Awaken your senses in the morning and brew up to 8 cups of coffee when guests are over. Forcing the boiling water up through the coffee grinds and then filtering it through its separate chamber, you will love the smooth cup of joe that’s produced. Now if 8 cups isn’t enough for your crowd, try our new Enamelware Boiling Kettle. While not a coffee maker, this kettle allows you to successfully boil enough water to serve with tea or instant coffee when camping. Its large spout and durable handle eliminate the worry of spilling.
In terms of caring for your enamelware, it is very important that you follow care instructions to protect the longevity of your piece. As with all enamelware, please note that minor surface irregularities and unfinished edges are a normal result of the metalworking and enameling process.
1. Do not scrub with abrasive materials on enamel surface. Remove stains and burned on grease with a soap-filled sponge or simply warm soapy water.
3. Use sharp-edged metal utensils with extra care, in order to prevent scratching.
4. If enamelware should be left empty on a hot burner, switch off and allow to cool slightly before adding liquid.
5. Enamel on steel is hard and strong. But like any good ceramic materials, it will chip if handled too roughly.
To round out the enamelware collection at SYW, our Enamel Flatware seen here to the right, is a 16 piece set including forks, knives, tablespoons and teaspoons; combining enamel and stainless steel. Lastly, our new Enamelware Colander, offers the same red with white speckling design as the products featured above.
