#1: It’s portable. While paper plates do the job for picnics and outdoor parties, enamel ones like these give that extra touch of luxury to an impromptu setting. They’re great for pop-up dinner parties as they’re light, easy to transport and won’t break in transit.
#2: They now come in all manner of mantel-worthy colours – like these Duck Egg Blue Tumblers from Maisy & Grace.
#3: It’s cheap! Not only is it seriously on trend it also won’t cost your firstborn child. These enamel mugs, for example, start at just $3.95. At that price you can get one for everyone with a few leftover just for luck.
#4: It’s seriously durable – which is exactly why it’s used for camping fare. The best part is, even if enamel pieces like get a dent or two it simply adds to the charm. Enamel is also great for kid’s clumsy hands.
#5: It’s made by hand. The original enamelware dates back to ancient Egyptian and Roman times and in many places the enamelware surface is still applied by hand. This jug, for example, is handmade Romania.
#6: You know it lasts and lasts and lasts. Perhaps you still have a hand-me-down enamel pie dish from your grandma or enamel camping pot from the family collection – this stuff goes the distance. Like the says... it’s steadfast.
#7: They make great gifts for everyone. Men, women, hikers, homebodies – everyone. These via Etsy would look just as good in the back of a ute as they would on a pristine farm table.
