Austrian enamel milk pan 0.5l, blue
A half litre enamelled steel Austrian Schnabeltopf (literally 'beak-pot') or milk pan, for the warming of milk or sauces, or even the boiling of a single egg. Enamel, which is in essence coloured glass fused to a steel ground, marrying a smooth inert surface to a shatter resistant form, has long been the material of choice for warming milk, custards, or other sensitive flavour absorbing drinks or sauces, as it doesn't react to acidity, or retain and transfer flavours. With a diameter of around 10cm this pan comes in a soft blue, with a creamy off-white interior. Made in Ybbsitz in Austria at the hydroelectrically powered metal stamping and enamelling workshops of Riess, a company with an unswerving commitment to both the quality of their produce, and an environmentally, and socially sustainable model of industry.
