Enamelware Dust Pan & Hand Broom
Shiny and a smooth with a surface dirt just slips off of, the enamelware dust pan stays looking innocent and clean despite spending its entire working life scooping up dirt.
Made of metal coated with porcelain enamel, the dust pan will look stately leaning into a corner, supporting the argument that even the most everyday items should be made well and look good — after all, they’re the items you use most often, as much in view as a vase or rug.
This dust pan is made by an Austrian company that’s been specializing in porcelain enamel for over 80 years, using their expertise in rustic porcelain enamel for everything from cooking pots and storage containers, to the road signs of sea salt-whipped Italian towns, and other industrial goods that need to withstand high heat or the elements.
This porcelain enamel is made from natural raw materials (namely: glass, a potassium compound and metal oxide). The company uses their own hydroelectric power plants to generate the heat to make their enamelware, and reuse the heat three times over to save even more energy.
While this will last a few lifetimes, when it comes to it, the dust pan is 100% recyclable.
Use & Care
Pairs with our horsehair hand broom. (Buy both together by selecting the option from the drop down menu above.)
Use this as you would any dust pan: sweep dirt into it, then dump the dirt into a trash bin.
If the pan needs cleaning, hose it down, hand wash it, or throw it in the dishwasher. Porcelain enamel is hardy, so there's no need to treat it gently.
Production & Design
Only natural, abundantly available raw materials are used for enameling this dust pan.
To carry out the high-heat enameling of their products, the company constructed three of their own hydroelectric power stations that allow them to use 100% green electricity. This saves 4,600 tons of carbon dioxide and 3.6 tons of sulfur oxide and sulfur dioxide from ever being made and released into our air. The construction of their drying and burning facilities allows them to use and reuse the heat they generate for three different purposes. They're excited about residual heat and are working towards the day when they are completely independent from fuel oil.
