Boiler, Enamel Double BoilerAbout this object
This is an enamel double boiler. Enamelware was popular in New Zealand from the 1930s through until the late 1960s, and recently has made a resurgence.
The English Judge Ware brand was marketed as ‘handsome, hygienic, heat retaining’. Enamelling stopped the metal in the pan from leaving a taste in the food. The double boiler (or porringer) was used for cooking custards and other delicate foods that could not be heated directly.
