While summer is all about grilling, fall is all about baking. The onset of the extended holiday season means the kitchen gets a workout with flour-coated counters, mounds of chocolate chips, and spicy scents wafting through the whole house. For many, baking a batch of pumpkin bread or snickerdoodles brings back cherished memories of spending time in the kitchen with mom or grandma. For me, sitting on the kitchen stool while I stirred a batch of cookie dough in Mom’s giant Pyrex bowl was pure heaven.
You can bring some vintage flavor back into your own holiday baking this season with our Vintage Housewares Collection. This Vintage Pyrex 4-Quart Bowl will hold the muffin mix while adding some sunshine to your kitchen with its zesty yellow finish. This hue comes from the Primary Color line of Pyrex dishes and the bowl measures just over 10″ in diameter. For smaller batches, check out the matching Vintage Pyrex Yellow 2.5 Quart Bowl which is eye-popping on your counter even when you’re not baking!
For an updated version of these classic bowls, don’t miss the newest offerings in our Porcelain Enamelware Collection. This Set of 5 Enamelware Nesting Bowls gives you a full range of sizes for everything from salsa verde in the small bowl to a hearty salad in the largest size. These American made bowls are hand spun from commercial grade steel then coated with porcelain enamel glass and baked to create a hard-as-nails finish that will stand up to years of use. Choose from seven brilliant colors for this nesting set.
Want more variety in your kitchenware? Then choose our Build-Your-Own Enamelware Bowl Collection where you choose five bowls in whatever size and whatever finish color you want. If you want five small bowls all in Jadite, you can do that! Or how about two small bowls and three large bowls in five different finish colors? The number of options are a mathematical challenge but rest assured these beautiful porcelain enamel bowls will outlast your kitchen!Read More
The entertaining season is upon us and while I do love visiting with friends and family, my favorite part of the holidays is the food! I love throwing a party with nothing but hors d’oeuvres and desserts because, quite frankly, those are my favs. It’s like opening your own tapas place where guests sample little bites of this and that and since they don’t fill up on a heavy meal, there’s plenty of room for dessert!Read More
It’s the biggest birthday party of the year and everyone is invited! The 4th of July is one birthday that’s celebrated from coast to coast with picnics, parades, concerts, and fireworks exploding from Boston to the Big Island. It’s a day to celebrate our country’s struggle for independence, its colorful patchwork of peoples, and the resurgence of quality, American made products to the worldwide marketplace.Read More
Back in March when we were simply dreaming of summer picnics, we featured the Manhattan studio of The Jewels of New York. Diana Yen, the creative force behind this catering and food consultation service, installed two Ivanhoe® Avalon Warehouse Porcelain Pendants to brighten up her busy work space. And as it often happens with customers browsing our website, something else caught Diana’s eye.
“I thought the Porcelain Enamel Dinnerware collection was delightful and would make a fun spring picnic,” Diana says. So in spite of the recent spate of rainy weather on the East Coast, Diana and her staff created a lovely picnic lunch in Central Park featuring Spring Quiche and Pickled Radishes all served up on our beautiful porcelain graniteware plates and bowls.Read More
