Questions & Answers
1. What is enamel?
Enamel is a material made by fusing powdered glass to a substrate by firing, usually between 750 and 850 °C. For more detailed information about enamel and the enameling process, see ABOUT ENAMEL!
2. Is it dishwasher, oven or freezer safe?
Of course it is! You can wash your enamelware in a dishwasher, don’t worry, it won’t get damaged. The color decoration won’t be washed off either. Our decals are well preserved within the enamel layer and are made to last. This is also the case when using in an oven or freezing. You can use enamelware to bake a cake or to freeze ice creams, it won’t change the taste of your food and will still look great!
3. Can I put it into campfire?

5. Do you ship overseas?
Of course! If a car can get outside your house, so can we. We deliver all around the world.
6. My enamelware has some imperfections! Why is that?
This is down to the nature of enamelware! Every coat of enamel is applied by people’s skilled hands, not by automatic machines. Some dots, shades, etc. are proof of this. We are not talking about imperfections which leads us to discard the product. These minute details often go unseen unless looking very closely and add unique character to your product. No two products are the same!
7. Is food eaten from enamelware safe to eat?
It’s really the safest way to eat or drink, to be honest. It is a completely neutral surface therefore it doesn’t react with any acids in food. It doesn’t contain any harmful ingredients either.
8. How should I care for my enamelware?
Enamelware is very durable, but it also can be damaged when handling without proper care. Throwing, dropping or scratching is really not recommended. If it accidentally happens and your enamelware chips on the outside, you can still use it. It will make your enamelware even more unique. However, if you will see that your enamelware is damaged in a place that can have contact with food, you should stop using it for eating or drinking. TIP: You can make a great flowerpot out of old enamelware!
9. Can I use it in the microwave?
Please, don’t even try it! Under the detailed enamel coat is high quality steel, which cannot be used in the microwave.
10. How should I clean my enamelware without damaging it?
Enamel is not really that demanding. A sponge and washing-up liquid will be sufficient. Just don’t use a scourer! You can try using baking soda, when you are left with hard to remove stains.
