Enamel cookware is a type of cookware with a porcelain or ceramic enamel coating on the surface. It includes a cast iron base forged from a single piece of metal that incorporates the handle. It is thicker and heavier, allowing even heat distribution and retention. Enameled cookware has an extra layer of enamel coating that covers the iron. The cookware is easy for braising, grilling, simmering, frying, and baking. It can be used on a stovetop, oven, or broiler. The enamel coating doesn't degrade as PTFE nonstick or ceramic coatings do. The enamel forms a nonstick coating that can handle temperatures higher than ceramic nonstick, making it ideal for cooking at high temperatures. The enamel coating on cast iron cookware is non-reactive and won't leach into food when exposed to acidic foods.
This cookware has become increasingly popular in recent years owing to its durability, versatility, and aesthetic appeal. It is also available in many colors and patterns, making it an attractive choice for cooks at home to have both functional and beautiful cookware. Enamel cookware is easy to maintain and clean due to its non-reactive, nonstick qualities. The enamel cookware market has grown significantly owing to increased consumer awareness about the advantages of enamel cookware.
Halt in Production Activities Affected the Supply Chain of Cookware Products
Many countries imposed several measures in 2020 to control the virus's spread, resulting in severe supply chain disruptions. Labor shortage at factories and logistics operations due to the pandemic further significantly impacted supply chains globally.
This market relies on international trade. However, border controls due to COVID-19 limited travel and transportation to many regions and created hindrances to international trade, most notably in 2020. Furthermore, national lockdowns continued to slow the flow of raw materials, disrupting the manufacturing of enameled cookware.
Congested ports, shipping container shortages, and related freight delays resulted in soaring costs and continued to disrupt the supply chain, thus leaving retailers and manufacturers without inventory to keep up with consumer demand while the prospect of price increases on the goods.
Enameled cookware companies are strengthening their supply chain strategies to become more resilient and operate with a strong network of suppliers and customers. Companies aim to develop a robust framework for a flexible and responsive supply chain to protect against future disruptions.

Cookware made of enamel is expensive for the common individual to purchase. Price fluctuation in commodities, including glass, copper, steel, and porcelain enamel, is a major barrier to market expansion.

Minor mishandling while carrying this heavy cookware can result in major accidents.
