Are any of you aware that Serbia makes fine cookware?

Asked by Coloma (47105points) January 16th, 2017

I recently bought a really nice new cooking pot and was surprised to find it was made in Serbia. After researching the brand name I came across this website.

www.metalaccookware.com/en

I had no idea that Serbia ( Metalac ) cookware was such a premiere company in Europe. Not only do I love this pot but I am pleasantly surprised to find that it is of Serbian origin. Do any of you own any Serbian cookware?

Yes I know about Metalac, it’s a very respectful company here when it comes to making cookware. Glad to hear they make it abroad too.

@Sneki95 So it made it to the US. So I guess it does pretty well around Europe. They only need Asia to conquer the world.

I was just looking at their little coffee pots last week. Trying to decide if I really really need one. I may buy one for a friend – we’re always heating up small amounts of liquids for tea/coffee/cocoa and I think those little pots would be perfect.

I generally prefer ceramic cookware so it was nice to see a more attractive option available.

What I really want is pieces from the Minnie Mouse series but I haven’t found those yet.

@Sneki95 I’m stoked, I want more of Metalac wares, really nice product.
@Mimishu1995 According to the website they are now distributing in Japan, maybe your next.
@BellaB Oh why not, you might use it more than you think.

No US brand worth considering?

Something positive about Serbia. For years, Serbia was known for its mass killings and hatred of Croatians. Glad things have changed.

@imrainmaker Of course, but I just happened on this brand and, well, nice cookware can come from anywhere. France is known for its famous La Creuset cast iron pots, no good cookware comes from a bad country. haha

@elbanditoroso Goes to show nothing and nobody is ever all bad.

@Coloma Do you know the metal content of the cookware? They certainly are nice a looking line of cookware! I had no idea cookware is made in Serbia.

@coloma – Good stuff can be produced anywhere in the world. To put it differently which is the US brand you think is equally good / may be better?

I just did some googling and I see All Clad is a brand known for quality and made in the US.

Coloma's avatar

@si3tech Enameled stainless steel and they have a line of aluminum too.
@imrainmaker All-Clad is top o’ the line manufactured in Penn. and Regal Ware made in Wis. to name a couple. @jca beat me to it.

Revere Ware used to be made in the US. Those pots often have copper bottoms. I have some I inherited and last night when I was googling this, I found a page that has the history of Revere Ware and the stamps at the bottom of the pots and their evolution. I am going to look at my pot bottoms later and learn more about my particular ones.

Coloma's avatar

@jca Oh yeah, Revere ware, I remember that too. Really popular back in the 60’s.

@Coloma Thank you. Enameled stainless sounds good to me. No aluminum for my cookware if it would have contact with the food. Aluminum-clad bottom (for heat distribution) is fine. My cookware is an old line called “Permanent” a stainless steel with aluminum clad bottom. I have had it for more than 40 years.

Le Creuset, Dansk, Metalac. I do love enameled cookware.
