Thanks to its colorful design and durability, it's a favorite among children and preferred for daily use in restaurants, bars, and for taking on excursions or picnics.
The use of enamel in Mexico dates back to the 19th century, but it wasn't until the 1930s that it gained popularity when a craft industry producing high-quality kitchen utensils emerged, making it a symbol of Mexican culture and identity. For many years, enamel 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 have a larger presence in the market.
Today, enamel is being revalued for its beauty, its connection to Mexican culture, its versatility, and its qualities: it's non-toxic, more resilient and durable than ceramics and glass, can be used over direct flame, doesn't alter the taste of food, is easy to clean, inhibits the growth of bacteria, and doesn't retain odors or residues.
