for the love of enamelware

Technically I got these for camping, but they have snuck into everyday use as well. They are light, easily stackable, (well not the mugs.) I can also put just about any food in them. Loving that!

The only slight unhappy side, if you drop them, they can chip. While this doesn’t effect their use, to my eyes it’s a constant reminder with the dish in question, of that time I was rather clumsy and dropped a whole strawberry crumble on the kitchen floor…sad face indeed.

How about you? Do you use enamelware? Old stuff or new stuff?

If you look after your pieces (as in don’t drop them from a big height!) I suspect they will last far longer than I will. My grandmother still uses some select items that have been gracing cupboards for over her life time and her mother’s. Far more impressive than my chipped Ikea bowls.

 If you would like to buy some enamelware, I highly reccommend

Odgers & Mc Clelland, Exchange Stores– Nundle and

The Lost and Found Department.

Both small companies run by some super duper lovely people.
