This enamel lunch container is sturdy and safe for food, with timeless good looks, which you’ll need since enamelware is likely to last a lifetime. Despite its milky white finish, porcelain enamel is tough, combing the best properties of glass and steel. It is non-porous, won’t break, is scratch resistant, doesn’t harbor bacteria (or off-smells), and won’t affect the taste of your food or leech random chemicals into it (BPA from plastic, we’re looking at you).

It also has a nice, tight-fitting lid with a stainless steel clasp and handle. A rubber seal keeps soups and sauces from leaking, and the container can be put on the stove top for reheating.

The Austrian company that makes this container has been specializing in porcelain enamel for over 80 years. Besides making these handsome devils, they’re also the go-to company for the road signs of sea salt-whipped Italian towns, and other industrial goods that need to withstand high heat or the elements. Lest you think 80 is a bit young, the company started 461 years ago in 1550 as a pan-making firm.

This enamel container 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 reuses the heat three times over to save even more energy.

Use & Care

This lunch container can be heated on any stove top (gas, electric or induction). Un-clamp the lid first. 

Porcelain enamel is the coating around a core of metal, so don't put this in the microwave. If you've heated it in the oven, be sure to let it cool before submerging it in water — a sudden change in temperature could cause the metal to warp. This is sturdy, but not invincible. Dropping enamelware onto a stone floor can cause chips in the enamel.

This lunch container is dishwasher safe, but is also easy to hand wash. If there's food stuck on the bottom soak it with a bit of hot water and dish soap. Porcelain enamel is known for it's non-scratch properties, so if you need to take a brillo pad to a stubborn food particle, your container will withstand your efforts.

This porcelain enamel container is safe for those with a nickel allergy.

Production & Design

Only natural, abundantly available raw materials are used for enameling this lunch container.

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.

These containers are not disposable — you'll use them a thousand times over — but for good measure, they are 100% recyclable.
