Ildpot – product text
In the 1970s, the Ildpot stoneware series was welcomed by Danish households as a truly novel series of cookware. Women had entered the labour market, which was changing the way food was cooked and served. The pieces in the Ildpot series could be taken straight from the freezer to the oven and then to the dinner table. This made preparing the evening meal both easy and manageable. FDB is now relaunching this iconic stoneware series, which was designed by the renowned architect and designer Grethe Meyer (1918-2008) who belonged to the Danish design elite and who worked throughout her life with the furniture designer Børge Mogensen. Grethe Meyer first and foremost wanted the Ildpot series to be functional. She therefore went to great lengths in shaping all the bowls and dishes to fit as neatly as possible into ovens and kitchen cupboards. She tested all the pieces in her own kitchen, thereby ensuring that they lived up to her functional and space-saving requirements. Ildpot is made of unglazed cordierite ceramic, a magnesium aluminium silicate capable of withstanding large temperature differences, and which also has a raw look that acquires a golden patina with use. In addition, Ildpot is a high-quality product that is environmentally friendly as it dispenses with the need to use disposable aluminium and foil trays, and which can be passed down from generation to generation. A beautiful and stylish design of which 18 different pieces are now being relaunched. Ildpot is dishwasher-safe and microwave-proof, and can also be used on a gas hob. However, it is not suitable for using on bonfires.
