The Best Enamelware

i am a food blog buying guide: falcon

I get tons of questions about my favourite kitchen goods. In “The Best Series,” I highlight my faves.

I LOVE enamelware. It’s durable, classic, easy to clean and super-versatile. You’ll see enamelware pop-up time and time again on I am a Food Blog. There aren’t too, too many enamelware companies out there – the most well known, for good reason, is British-owned Falcon. They’ve been around since 1920 and their classic pie set is something I truly covet. I have a couple of plates that I brought home with me from London (I use them ALL THE TIME) and if the luggage space was available I think I would have gone a little crazy. There aren’t any Falcon stores on this side of the pond, but Falcon ships internationally and in the US, Pigment ships as well.

Update: As Molly as pointed out, anthropologie has a red pie set on sale :)

    1. steph says:

      who doesn’t love a good sale!?

    1. steph says:

      woot! can’t wait to see them pop up on Local Haven!!

  5. Justin says:

    If enamel does stain – like coffee stains for example – what’s the best way to get it sparkling white again?

    1. steph says:

      Justin…what the? How did you get stains on your enamelware?! Are you still collecting ALL the Falcon mugs? So jealous that you can just walk over and buy some any time you want!

      I say use some baking soda, water and a soft cloth and scrub it out. It should work. Let me know if it doesn’t!
