Super cool enamel jug that really keeps cool drinks cool and also makes a splendid vase. The black colour was a nod to the coal that fuelled London's industrial revolution.

Enamelware is made from a porcelain enamel, which is a powdered glass, that has been fused onto a steel base. First, the steel is shaped into the product and it is dipped into liquid porcelain enamel and fired in a kiln. After the first firing, the contrasting rim is hand-painted on and the Falcon logo is added to the base before the product goes back into the kiln for a second time.

The enamel coating can chip or graze if dropped, and the steel may oxidise if exposed. If this happens, the product is still safe to use.

Falcon enamelware was first manufactured in the 1920s near Birmingham, England. The collection was revitalised in 2011 to include new colours and different pieces. The thickness of the steel coating was also increased to make each piece even more durable and hard wearing.

Abrasive cleaning sponges or brushes may scratch the enamel surface. A soak in warm soapy water can help remove baked on food. A mixture of lemon juice and salt can also work wonders at removing stain marks. Sprinkle salt to cover a stain and squeeze lemon juice over the salt and let soak into the stain to create a paste. Scrub with a non-abrasive sponge.
