Every piece has been kiln-hardened twice at 1400F to stand up to scratches and chipping.Bon Ami dates back to 1886 and is a very mild abrasive that’s good for cleaning almost anything without dulling or scratching the surface, so it was perfect for this.By combining the Bon Ami powder with a little water, I made a paste that I used to scrub the surface some more.Surely they must have a better one than the one that came with my pot. I was very disappointed in the way it was shipped though.It was not wrapped or padded and was loose banging around inside a box with another item.

Even though I’m not using them for cooking, vintage enamel pieces are so simple, versatile and charmingly utilitarian that they’re easy to find a use for. They’re generally cheap and easily collectable, so I like to keep my eye out for little bowls and baking pans and trays at junk shops and estate sales.
