Enamelware

Enamelware once brought to mind cowboys drinking bitter coffee on the open range, but we’ve turned that idea on its head, making colorful, fun, and richly patterned enamelware part of everyday living in every room of the house-no campfire required.

After developing our first designs in 1995, and being unable to find a manufacturer in the U.S., we traveled to Taiwan and found a production company that was able to work with us to see our vision fulfilled, and that’s where our very first pieces were produced. Our designers trained the artisans in the complex color-dragged, hand-painting techniques specific to our Courtly Check® enamelware. In order to fulfill the growing demand for our enamel products, we now also work with selected manufacturers in China, Indonesia, and Thailand. We continue to send our artisans on training trips to our partner companies.

Creating enamelware is time-honored and time-consuming process. The production facilities are modern, but many of the techniques developed by the ancient Egyptians—enamelware has been around for that long—are still in use. Raw steel bodies are machine milled or hand-formed, glazed, and then kiln-fired at temperatures of more than 1,380 degrees Fahrenheit. Each piece is coated again with a colored frit-based glaze and refired. Courtly Check® designs are hand-painted using colored frits that fuse to the base coat during firing. Decals used in our Flower Market enamelware are hand-applied after the second glaze firing. These decals fuse to the base coat during the next firing, becoming a permanent layer in the design. Minor surface irregularities are a normal result of metalworking and the hand-application of the enamel surface and decoration. After the designs have been applied and fired, a final cover coat is added, and pieces are fired once again to ensure that all enamelware is completely food-safe.

Enamelware Care and Use

Please take care with your enamelware; while the surface is strong and durable, it’s not indestructible. Rough handling, banging or dropping a piece may cause the glazed glass surface to chip. As with any enamel product, some scratching and dulling of the surface is likely to occur over time.

Our enamelware exceeds both federal food safety regulations and California’s Proposition 65, the strictest environmental safety standards in the U.S. Handle enamelware with care, and discontinue use for food service if it becomes chipped, cracked, or broken.

  • While most enamelware pieces are dishwasher safe (except those with rattan, wood or knobs), hand-washing and drying will extend the life and lustre of the finish.
  • When washing, use a nonabrasive soap and sponge or nylon pad only. Dry immediately for best results.
  • Knife marks left on majolica or enamel plates may be gently removed with Soft Scrub, Bon Ami or other mild abrasive cleaners.
  • If marking from silverware should occur, apply a paste of baking soda and water to the area and rub gently to remove marks.
  • To remove burnt-on food, use a nylon-covered pad or wooden scraper, or loosen with a solution of baking soda and water.
  • Do not boil tea kettles dry, as this will result in damage to the finish. Boiling the kettle dry may also damage cooktops.
  • If water is allowed to remain in tea kettles, rusting may occur. To remove rust stains and mineral deposits, fill the kettle with water and add two tablespoons of baking soda and the juice of one half a lemon. Boil for four to five minutes. Rinse and dry.
  • Pieces that do not have rattan, wood, knobs, or other embellishments may be used in an oven, up to a maximum temperature of 400 degrees. Be sure the piece is at room temperature before it is placed in a warm oven.
  • Do not use enamelware in a microwave oven.
