CLASSIC KUWI ENAMELWARE Q & A's:
HAND BUILT: Our enamelware is hand dipped with an extra thick enamel glaze, and then fired in the kiln in extremely high temperatures. This can be repeated numerous times, depending on the product. During this process, the coloured pigment in the glaze reacts during the firing process, giving each piece its own varying character and finish, with no two pieces exactly the same. This process (and extra enamel coats), can result in slight texture on the enamel, or small imperfections... but also, helps to create a stronger, more durable product.
ARTWORK APPLIED BY HAND: Because the artwork is also applied by hand, there will be slight variations, that add to the hand built, vintage feel.
If I chip my enamelware, is it still safe to use?
This enamelware is shatterproof, although if dropped the outer porcelain layer can chip. If this happens, the steel below naturally oxidises & the enamelware remains safe to use. We think this just adds to the vintage charm of this kiwi classic!
Our enamelware is Food Safety Tested to meet FDA standards, is chemically safe, not made with plastics, eco-friendly, child safe & tough as!
