Golden Rabbit enamelware is created using a traditional handmade production method that has changed very little since the late 18th century. Each piece is hand-dipped and fired at extremely high temperatures causing the steel to contract and fusing the porcelain enamel to the steel, creating a durable, non-porous surface. Slight color variations and imperfections are a natural byproducts of this craft and are not due to any inattention to detail. These inherent aspects of the enameling process are a part of the charm and uniqueness that make enamelware so popular.
Enamelware products can last many years and passed down from generation to generation if given the proper care.
Use & Care Guidelines
- Never pre-heat enamelware dry. When left on high heat, enamelware will quickly reach high temperatures that can destroy the enamel surface if left empty.
- Never let liquids boil dry, it will also damage the enamel surface.
- Porcelain enamel-on-steel is stick resistant; however, cooking on too high a heat can cause oil or fat residue to stick to the surface. Cleaning the pan thoroughly between use and using a small amount of cooking spray or oil can help reduce sticking.
- Our enamelware is safe for cleaning in the dishwasher. Soaking or allowing enamelware to sit wet is not recommended and can occasionally cause rusting around the rim. Should rusting occur, use a mild Soft Scrub cleaner or Magic Eraser to gently remove the spot.
- For the occasional dried-on or burnt food, mix 2 teaspoons of baking soad with water and allow to simmer in the pan for 15 minutes, let the pan cool to room temperature, then rinse. Repeat if necessary.
- Do not use steel wool, scouring pads, oven cleaners or strong abrasive cleaners on porcelain enamel products.
- For stain marks from food residue or burner marks from gas stoves, use a mild Soft Scrub cleaner or Magic Eraser to easily remove.
- To protect the beauty of the porcelain enamel finish, avoid strong impacts. High quality enamel is the most chip resistant enamelware available and its stainless steel rim helps prevent some chipping, but dropping enamelware onto a hard surface or something hitting the enamelware can cause the enamel finish to chip.
