RIESS: Porcelain Enamel
stands for high-quality cookware made of enamel and therefore for aroma-neutral, energy-saving and healthy cooking, baking and storage.
Since 1922, the traditional Austrian family business has been enamelling cookware in many colors and designs. The RIESS products are produced regionally, by hand in the Lower Austrian Mostviertel and, thanks to their own hydropower, CO2-neutral.
Over nine generations, our family has been creating kitchenware in Ybbsitz in the Lower Austrian Mostviertel region since 1550. Since 1922, we have specialised in the manufacture of top-quality enamelware.
All About Porcelain Enamel
Porcelain enamel has been a valuable material for kitchenware since the end of the nineteenth century, thanks to its rust-free surface coating, high level of cleanliness and easiness to clean. This was when the technological breakthrough was made that allowed the elements of glass and iron to be firmly bound together.
Porcelain enamel is an ancient material - the first pieces of porcelain enamel found buried in Mycenae are 3,500 years old.
Porcelain enamel has been popular in many cultures for jewellery and in arts and crafts. Carl Peter Fabergé used porcelain enamel to decorate his famous eggs, which he made out of precious materials for the Russian tsars between 1885 and 1917.
