Hey Good Looking – What you got cooking?!

Fabulous CathrineHolm cookware available at Fish4junk

We love enamel cookware.  It’s stood the test of time and is now more popular than ever!

Norwegian born Grete Prytz Kittelsen (1917-2010) designed  the fabulous ranges of CathrineHolm enamel cookware in the 1950’s and 1960’s.  Second hand CathrineHolm is now highly collectable – it varies in condition (and price) from fully usable to ‘just for show’.

The stunning midcentury designs, such as Lotus, are simplistic, contemporary and beautiful. Her inspiration for these designs often came from American art. She used simple shapes and plain colours on vitreous enamel. Her designs can be seen on bowls, cookware, teapots and coffee pots.


Grete Prytz Kittelsen was a goldsmith, enamel artisit and designer. She was known as “Queen of Scandinavian Design”. She died in 2010, aged 93. Her stunning enamel designs will live forever.

Here at Fish4Junk, we have a selection of CathrineHolm products in stock – casserole dishes, saucepans, teapots, coffee pots.  Most of our range is from the ‘Lotus’ pattern.

Here’s a simple recipe for your CathrineHolm casserole pot or saucepan.
