Wares of Knutsford is full of gorgeous items to help you achieve that oh-so-fashionable vintage look in your kitchen. One of the key components of our vintage kitchenwares department is our range of enamelware, which is as good looking as it is practical.
The range includes serveware and cookware in the traditional white and blue enamel colourway and also in some modern-looking colours, such as black, red and blue, and an extensive range of cream enamel cookware. These are made by Falcon from high-quality steel with a double enamel coating and feature a smart grey rim. Enamelware is popular in cooking for its even heat distribution and durability – these items will last a lifetime, and probably longer!
The cream enamelware range at Wares of Knutsford
Our cream enamel cookware range includes baking pans in 29cm and 34cm sizes. These come with useful deep sides to keep the contents of the pan safe and curved corners for easy cleaning. There are also a 22cm pie dish for traditional cooking and a 26cm mini roasting pan. You can also buy oval-shaped covered roasters in 22.5cm and 30cm sizes, which help to ensure roasted meat remains moist and tender by self-basting. A handle on each side makes them easy to use even when hot.
A four loaf cream enamel breadbin looks great on a kitchen worktop and is large enough to hold four full-sized loaves or a number of cakes and rolls. The cream enamel teapot looks stylish on a kitchen range and is the perfect choice for camping, picnics and days out.
If you want to really go retro, we also stock a cast iron cream enamel fondue set by Master Class, which is ideal for meat, cheese or even chocolate fondues. It comes gift boxed and includes six colour-coded forks.
There are also a couple of cream enamel whistling kettles, suitable for all kinds of hobs including induction.
Why buy cream enamelware?
Apart from the obvious cosmetic appeal of classic, smooth cream enamel and the nostalgic pull of using the kind of kitchenware you watched your grandmother use when you were a child, enamel is also an extremely practical material. Enamelware is made on a base of durable steel with a tough porcelain coating. It is resistant to chemicals and burns and while it may chip, it won’t break if you drop it on a hard surface. It offers an even conduction of heat during cooking, it is easy to clean and is oven safe up to temperatures of 270°C. It is also dishwasher safe and suitable for use on electric and gas hobs.
