Attractive, Functional, Durable!
on March 2, 2008
I've had this for quite some time and it has held up very well. As the title states, this is (as with most enamel kitchen items) ENAMEL ON STEEL. I treat it exactly as I do my enamel tea kettle - hand washing only and wiping dry after each use. Enamel does take a little extra care but ours gets a LOT of use, and is more than worth it. This is so convenient, especially after using the plastic colanders (with no raised base) that sit flat in the sink and soak in the very water being drained. The price is impossible to beat, as well. When this is sitting on the counter top, it's also a practical way to display non-refrigerated fruit or vegetables!
