White Enamelware Lunch Container: Good-Looking and Unbreakable

White Enamelware Lunch Container: Good-Looking and Unbreakable

Cambria Bold
Mar 15, 2013

I've admired this enamelware lunch container for a long time. Despite its delicate white appearance, the porcelain enamel is actually really tough. It's non-porous, unbreakable, scratch-resistant, doesn't harbor bacteria or smells, and won't leech chemicals or anything else into your food. 

The Austrian company that makes this container has been in the porcelain-enamel business for over 80 years. As Kaufmann Mercantile (the store that sells these stateside) says about the company, "Lest you think 80 is a bit young, the company started 461 years ago in 1550 as a pan-making firm." Well, then! The container can also be heated on any stove top (gas, electric or induction), and has a leak-proof seal.

It's pricy for a lunch container, yes, but that's because of the quality, the manufacturing process, and the durability. If you invest in it, it will last you a lifetime.
