Punch, soup, stew, brandishing while chasing naughty mice around the kitchen...this classic enamel ladle does everything a ladle should. Hang to store via the hole in the handle or the traditional curved end hook (which, in addition to the generous 12" length, keeps the ladle from slouching alllll the way around and falling into the pot).
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 a pan with it or drop it like it's hot (even if it's hot!) or it can chip.
