Emile Henry’s factory has been in existence since 1850 and produces all products at its factory in Marcigny, in southern Burgundy. The traditions and knowledge of the manufacturing processes are passed from generation to generation. Many of the kitchen products are still produced by hand and carry the maker’s initials. Pottery made with passion and that love shines through when you cook with Emile Henry products.
The unique HR® (High Resistance) ceramic is developed in Emile Henry’s own laboratory. Designed for use by professionals and passionate home cooks. Made of natural materials, without the use of cadmium, nickel or lead. Non-toxic and safe in use and preparation.
The material is smooth, non-adhesive and non-porous. The hard glaze is easy to clean and does not retain odours or bacteria. The Burgundian clay evenly distributes the heat and slowly to the centre of the baking dish and has great heat-retaining properties. Extremely scratch and impact-resistant. Shock resistance: can be placed in the oven directly from the freezer.
By mixing the different items and colours, you can create beautiful, trendy combinations for at home, as well as eye-catching buffet presentations.
