Enameled ware

Enameled ware

Utensils made of thin sheet steel coated with a layer of a glass-like material were called enameled ware and were used when the utensils needed to be put on the stove or if the material being boiled was likely to discolor or react with metal of the utensil. When referring to such items, the “ware” was seldom mentioned, so that, for example, an enameled ware bucket became just an enamel bucket.
