Name/Title

Boiler, Enamel Double Boiler

About 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.
