Even though we got every pot and pan you could imagine when we got married, some of my favorite pots and pans are the bright yellow Dansk Kobenstyle enamelware my parents got as wedding presents! My mom gave them to me when I moved into my first grown up apartment and I've used them ever since.
They are made differently than other enameled cookware, like Le Creuset, so they are much lighter weight, which has upsides (heat faster, easier to lift) and downsides (doesn't retain heat as well). The shapes are lovely and elegant, and the colors deep and rich.
A couple of weeks ago we were at a friend's house and saw his collection of pristine Dansk Kobenstyle enamelware in all sorts of beautiful colors I had no idea existed (hello, robins egg blue, I love you!). After getting over my embarrassment that our Dansk ware looks a little, um, well loved (we use them!) I became obsessed with getting more.
Hurray for ebay! (Please don't bid on the blue paella pan! I'm in love with it.)
