About Enamel Steel: The use of enamel steel in Mexico dates back to the 19th century, but it became popular in the 1930s when a high-quality enamel steel kitchen utensil artisan industry was developed, becoming a symbol of Mexican culture and identity. For many years, enamel steel was the preferred material for manufacturing kitchen utensils in Mexico due to its durability, corrosion resistance, and ease of cleaning. However, in the 1980s, its popularity waned as other materials like stainless steel and ceramics began to dominate the market.

Today, enamel steel is being revalued for its beauty, its connection to Mexican culture, its versatility, and its qualities: it is non-toxic, more resistant and durable than ceramic and glass, can be used over direct fire, does not alter the taste of food, is easy to clean, inhibits the development of bacteria, and does not retain odors or residues.
