All About Enamel
Enamel has been valued for kitchenware since the end of the 19th century thanks to its rust-free surface sealing, high level of hygiene and easy cleaning. At that time, the technological breakthrough was achieved to solidly combine the elements glass and iron.
Enamel was previously popular in jewelry and handicrafts in many cultures. First finds of enamel as burial objects in Mycenae are 3500 years old.
Carl Peter Fabergé used enamel to decorate his famous Easter eggs, made from precious materials for the Russian Tsars between 1885 and 1917.
Enamel is nothing but iron fused with silicate glass at 850°C. Only natural "mineral resources" such as iron, quartz, clay, feldspar, borax, soda and potash as well as the smallest amounts of metal oxides are used in the production. There are no artificial elements, which is why enamel is 100% recyclable in scrap metal.
The firing process creates the wonderfully bright colors of enamel as well as the hard, non-porous and scratch- and cut-resistant surface.
