Made of porcelain-coated steel, pewter is ideal for home use due to its colorful and durable nature. It's a favorite among children and preferred for everyday use in restaurants, bars, and for outings such as excursions or picnics.

The use of pewter in Mexico dates back to the 19th century, but it became popular in the 1930s when a high-quality artisanal industry of kitchen utensils developed, becoming a symbol of Mexican culture and identity.

For many years, pewter was the preferred material for making kitchen utensils in Mexico due to its durability, corrosion resistance, and ease of cleaning. However, its popularity declined in the 1980s as other materials like stainless steel and ceramics gained more presence in the market.

Today, pewter is revalued for its beauty, its connection to Mexican culture, its versatility, and its qualities: non-toxic, more resistant and durable than ceramic and glass, usable over direct heat, doesn't alter the taste of food, easy to clean, inhibits bacteria growth, and doesn't retain odors or residues.

Material: Porcelain-coated pewter steel.
Size: 4 x 15 cm, 30 g / 1.57 x 5.91 in, 1.06 oz.
Made in Mexico.

Enamelware Care

Enamel is an exceptionally strong and durable material. Here are some recommendations to ensure your enaml utensils remain in optimal condition:

Qualities: Stronger than ceramic and glass, non-toxic, doesn't alter the taste of food, doesn't retain odors or residues, and can be recycled for casting.

Versatile resilience: Enamel utensils are suitable for a variety of uses. You can safely use them on stovetops, ovens, and direct flame. Note that a temperature limit of 530F / 270C is recommended to preserve their integrity.

Dishwasher and cold-friendly: Enamel utensils are dishwasher safe. You can also store them in the refrigerator or freezer without concerns. Their ability to withstand temperature changes is impressive.

Microwave caution: Please note that enamel utensils are not suitable for microwave use. Avoid placing them in this appliance to preserve their quality and prevent damage.

Care and cleaning: To remove tea or coffee residue stains, you can apply lemon juice to the surface. For stubborn baked-on food, soak the utensil in warm soapy water. Avoid using abrasive sponges or brushes that might scratch the material. Coat the utensil with a thin layer of oil before cooking or baking to facilitate easy cleaning afterwards.
