We proudly present… RIESS Fruit and salad bowl!

The enamel bowls with rolled rims (this is the name for the curved rim in enamel terms) are popular and versatile helpers in the kitchen, and they preserve the unadulterated taste of the food placed in them. The bowls can be stacked inside each other and as such, don’t take up too much space when stored away (they can also be stored with their little “sisters”, our kitchen bowls). They can be used as fruit bowls, salad bowls and are also often used as mixing bowls for baking.

This strainer can be used to strain or wash any fruits, salads or vegetables just like a kitchen colander. The long handle and the hook on the rim of the strainer make it easy to affix the strainer to a suitable pot or bowl. The bottom of the strainer has flower-shaped holes all over it.

We love it!


It is cut and scratch resistant, easy to clean and does not change the taste of the food prepared in it – porcelain enamel has many advantages. The RIESS family, who lived in Austria, thought the same thing almost a long time ago when they began making tableware from this easy-care material in 1922.

Handmade with LOVE…

… this thought applies not only to us when we are cooking, but also to RIESS. The RIESS-Emaille manufactory in Ybbsitz in the Lower Austrian Mostviertel is the only cookware manufacturer in Austria and meanwhile the family business is well known far beyond its borders. In addition to kitchen utensils in classic white, there are pots, strainers, bowls, cups and the like in delicate pastel colours as well as animal and flower designs – so there is something for every taste.

The various products of „RIESS-Emaille“ made it all over the world to cult lifestyle objects.
