Porcelain enamel is an ancient material - the first pieces of porcelain enamel found buried in Mycenae are 3,500 years old. Riess, an Austrian company that manufactures these enamelware has a rich tradition with its roots dating back to the year 1550. That is when the original pan forge was founded in Ybbsitz in the Lower Austrian Mostviertel region. The manufacture of high-quality porcelain enamel kitchenware began here in 1922. Today, Julian Riess, Friedrich Riess and Susanne Riess, the ninth generation of the family, are at the helm of the company.
Enamelware is not only the first choice for anyone with a nickel allergy, but also the greenest way of cooking. Exclusively natural minerals, such as iron, quartz, clay, feldspar, borax, soda and potash as well as very small amounts of metal oxides are used in its manufacture. There are no artificial elements, meaning that porcelain enamel is 100% recyclable as scrap metal.
This heavy duty Enamel Pan is built to last, and it’s perfect for making omelettes or for general frying.
First heat the pan with high flames letting the oil or butter get hot. The intense heat will burn or scorch the surface. Now add the egg into the pan and turn the heat lower right away.
Some sticking will remain a possibility in enamel pans due to the absence of non-stick coating. However, you will achieve more success with these instructions when frying your eggs. The main advantage of not having a non-stick coating is that it emits no substances (of a coating) that will go into your food. The surface is very smooth and non-porous. It's a healthier way of cooking, the food stays clean and with pure flavors.
