Dansk Kobenstyle Cookware
In the 1950s, Scandinavian design partnered with American mass production techniques to create Dansk Kobenstyle cookware. Colorful, enameled steel and ceramic pots, pans, casserole dishes and bakeware are still used in modern kitchens. You can still cook with a selection of this practical, classic cookware in a variety of prices.What are the key features of Dansk Kobenstyle cookware?
The features of all Dansk Kobenstyle cookware and bakeware products are the same whether you are shopping for vintage, or brand new pieces:
- They are made of enamel-covered steel, and are lighter in weight than cast iron or clad steel.
- They have distinctive, cross-hatched handles.
- They come in an array of colors, including red, blue, white, mustard yellow, brown, and turquoise.
- Each pot, or skillet, can use its lid to double as a trivet. Just set it on the table, and the pot rests on the cross-hatched handle of the lid.
The list of products you can buy is a long one. You can buy new or vintage styles with the same quality for different prices. Here are a few examples of what types of cookware and bakeware are available:
- Casserole dishes with or without handles

You can keep your enamel products in good condition with a little extra care. The pans can be used on all types of stove tops. They work on gas, electric, and induction ranges. Dutch ovens or casserole dishes can be put on the grill. During the cooking process, heat the pans up slowly and always have fat or liquid in them. Avoid using excessively high heat or allowing the liquid to boil away, as this may result in damage to the enamel. For stirring, it is advisable to use wooden, plastic, or rubber tools, as metal may scratch. To clean up after cooking, wait until the pan has cooled, then wash with hot, soapy water. Rinse thoroughly, and dry well with a soft cloth before putting the pieces away. Avoid cleaning them with abrasive cleaning agents or cloths. For difficult-to-remove spots, allow the pans, skillets, or casseroles to soak for 1 to 2 hours before cleaning. If there is any staining, soak with water and vinegar for a couple hours before the normal cleaning process.Content provided for informational purposes only. eBay is not affiliated with or endorsed by Dansk Kobenstyle.
