Sustainability of these Porcelain Enamel Casserole Dishes with a Cast Iron Core

Enamel coated Cast Iron products are designed to last many years and are often passed down through generations and that’s exactly what we hope happens with this cooking pot. Cast Iron is an extremely durable and relatively low cost material that’s infinitely recyclable, it just gets scrapped and turned into Steel, even items produced as a manufacturing fault can be completely recycled and turned into Steel-based products.
If dropped or treated without care, the Enamel coating can crack or chip. It can also stain and ware overtime when harsh ingredients and materials used to cook or clean with, otherwise it’s very durable and can stay intact for decades.
The Porcelain Enamel coating doesn’t impact the ability to recycle the Cast Iron.
The handle is made of Stainless Steel. Steel is very similar in durability and recyclability as Cast Iron, then the Stainless finish acts much the as an Enamel coating in the sense of it preventing toxins from leaching.
