How rare to find pieces that feel right at home both in rustic country farmhouse kitchens brimming with fresh milk and wildflowers and on pared-down minimalist apartment countertops with Sunday crosswords and fresh-baked bread? Rare. But, in the case of these classic, timeless, hand-painted enamelware bowls, luckily not impossible. The 5" bowls are ideal for your morning cereal, for a healthy serving of ice cream, or (our favorite application) for a single serving of chips at 5pm.

Enamelware is metal—not ceramic, so don't put it in the microwave!—made from steel fused with melted glass and fired at exceptionally high temperatures to achieve its signature glossy-hard finish. This process makes it easy to clean, rust-averse, safe to use in the oven, dishwasher, or freezer, and long lasting. There's a reason your grandmother still has hers. Like many centuries-old techniques, the hand-dipped coating + hand-painted details can present subtle variations in each piece. We think they're charming, and, never fear, these "imperfections" won't affect use.

Take Care: While it can withstand extreme temperatures and a host of other abuses (looking at you: camping with children) enamel's kryptonite is its vitreous coating. Don't bang it with a spoon or drop it like it's hot (even if it's hot!) or it can chip.
