About Enamel Steel: The use of enamel steel in Mexico dates back to the 19th century, but it wasn't until the 1930s that it became popular when a thriving artisanal industry was developed for crafting high-quality enamel steel kitchen utensils, 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, resistance to corrosion, 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's non-toxic, more robust and durable than ceramic and glass, can be used directly over an open flame, doesn't alter the taste of food and beverages, is easy to clean, inhibits the growth of bacteria, and doesn't retain odors or residues.
