Enamelware Dust Pan & Hand Broom
Dirt slides right off the glossy and smooth surface of this dust pan, which is made of metal coated with porcelain enamel. The dust pan is produced by an Austrian company that has specialized in porcelain enamel for over 80 years, using this expertise in rustic porcelain enamel for industrial goods that need to withstand high heat or the elements - including everything from cooking pots to the road signs of sea salt-whipped coastal towns.
The porcelain enamel is made from natural raw materials (namely: glass, a potassium compound and metal oxide). The company uses its own hydroelectric power plants to generate heat required to make the enamelware, and reuses 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.) Dust pan available with or without the rubber lip.
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 its products, the company constructed three of its own hydroelectric power stations that produce 100% green electricity. This saves 4,600 tons of carbon dioxide and 3.6 tons of sulfur oxide and sulfur dioxide from ever being released into the air. The construction of the drying and burning facilities allows the company to use and reuse the heat generated for three different purposes. The ultimate goal is to be completely independent from fuel oil.
