10 1/2". Dishwasher, Oven, Broiler, Stove-top and Freezer Safe. Not for use in the microwave. We do not recommend soaking enamelware, as this can cause rusting to occur around the rim.  Should rusting occur, use a mild abrasive cleaner, like a ceramic stovetop cleaner, to gently remove the spot.  This can also be used to remove marks made by metal flatware.

Learn More About Enamelware

First appearing in the 1870s, enamelware was the first mass-produced technicolor kitchenware. Found in American dry-goods stores and mail-order catalogs, enamelware was largely produced between the late 1800s through the 1930s.  Items such as biscuit cutters, baking tins, and ladles were stamped from thin sheets of iron, steel, or aluminum, then coated with porcelain enamel, which was fused to the metal in a very hot oven.

With varied patterns like the familiar swirls, mottles, speckles, and solids, enamelware was typically blue, red, purple, brown, green, or pink, plus gray and white. Enamelware was much lighter-weight than the average kitchenware, cleaned easily, and was less fragile than china, which added to its popularity.

Many pieces that survived home life at the turn of the century were lost to World War II scrap-metal drives, so vintage examples of the once-plentiful kitchenware are much harder to find now, and the rarity adds to the value.

Enamelware was manufactured again in the United States during the 1960s.  Seen in the kitchens of both Julia Child and Martha Stewart, this beloved kitchenware shares its certain warmth and charm in kitchens across Europe and the States even still.
