Introducing: Falcon Enamelware April 16 2014
Since the 1920s Falcon Enamelware has been an icon of British home life. Ice white with a distinctive blue rim, it is instantly recognisable as a design classic.
But as well as timeless elegance, Falcon Enamelware has enduring strength and functionality. Enamelware is porcelain enamel fused onto heavy-gauge steel, which is what gives it its unique qualities – durability, smoothness and chemical-resistance. It can assume brilliant, long-lasting colours, and cannot burn. If you drop it, it may chip but it won’t break. Enamelware is made to last!
The form is usually pressed out of a sheet of steel, which is then dipped in liquid enamel and fired in a kiln. Once the first firing is complete, the rim is hand-painted, the Falcon Enamelware crest added to the base and the whole thing is re-fired to seal.
Here at Pedal + Tread we present the classic Falcon enamel mug which has been made in the same factory since 1951, but has now been updated and improved by using a heavyweight steel and thicker enamel for extra durability and smoothness around the rim. It is dishwasher-safe and oven-safe up to 530F / 270C, it can also be used on gas stoves and electric hobs, making it ideal for use outdoors when hiking, camping, cycle touring or just at home enjoying your daily hot brew.
Available now at Pedal + Tread in three great colours; pillarbox red, pigeon grey and classic white with blue rim.
