Do you know if there is any way to re-enamel a pan?

enamel pans - have a few pieces of my mothers pots and pans and this one is so useful in the kitchen that I am wanting to repair the nicks in the enamel food holding part

I have a pot that I use and am very fond of which has developed a couple of nicks. Can I get it re-enameled?

I know you can get enamel baths recoated and can buy the kit. But I'm not sure about saucepans. Perhaps those little tiny pots of enamel paint you get from craft shops of DIY stores would work but I would read the label before I tried it and if possible find an e-mail address where you can ask the manufacturor first, after all suacepans get a lot of heat and you don't want it to affect your food. My mum had enamelled pie dishes and she just used them regardless of the chips. I hope you can get it fixed.

Thanks so much for this. I had hoped someone here might know. I normally do look on the net, however, I gave MyLot a chance to inform me. You are a good friend and I appreciate your quick response

Thank-you for giving me your best response, did you get your favourite pan looked at yet, or asre you a bit like me, battleing on until you get around to it?

No, but I'd sure like to see the answers you get, as my favorite Le Creuset Dutch oven also has a bad nick.

So glad that I will be able to share it with you. We will both have a repaired pan to use in our kitchens. Maybe they would know if you contacted them?

I think you just have to get a new pan it would be to expensive to fix
