Everything about enamel

For kitchen utensils, enamel has been appreciated since the end of the 19th century thanks to its stainless surface sealing, high hygiene and easy cleaning. At that time, the technological breakthrough succeeded in solidly connecting the elements of glass and iron.

Enamel was previously popular in many cultures in jewelry and handicrafts. First finds of enamel as a burial object in Mycenae are 3500 years old.

Carl Peter Fabergé used enamel to decorate his famous Easter eggs made of precious materials, which he made between 1885 and 1917 for the Russian Tsars.


The material

Enamel is nothing but iron, which is 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 produces the wonderfully glowing colors of enamel as well as the hard, non-porous and scratch-resistant surface.
