Classic Favorite: Dansk Kobenstyle Enameled Cookware

We used to talk a lot about our favorite vintage cookware: the mid-century modern Dansk Kobenstyle enameled pots and pans with the distinctive styling and gorgeous colors. This cookware is still easily found in vintage shops and on eBay and we love its retro style, so we thought it was time to quickly revisit it!

We love enameled cookware, of course; our favorite pots and pans are enameled cast iron. The Dansk cookware took those bright, shiny colors and elevated them even further with angular modern lines, although the base material is sheet steel, not cast iron. The advantage to this is that it is much easier to lift, and also to go from stove to table.

Most of the Dansk products were designed by Danish designer Jens Quistgaard. But the company itself was always American-owned, founded in 1954 by entrepreneur Ted Nierenberg and Quistgaard.

Here's a link to the baking pan above, which we particularly like:
