Dansk Kobenstyle at Crate & Barrel.
I’m not sure how I missed this until now (and I apologize if it’s old news), but Dansk Kobenstyle cookware has been reissued and is now being sold at Crate & Barrel. There are two casseroles, a baking pan and a wooden-handled saucepan, each available in black, white and red. Nice!
The Kobenstyle line was designed by Jens Quistgaard, the co-founder of Dansk, in 1956. It’s been out of production for more than 20 years now, so this reintroduction is very exciting. Did you know that the X-handled lid doubles as a trivet and makes the pots stackable? Yup.
I love enameled cookware, and I’ve been admiring Kobenstyle stuff for a long time. I kind of feel like a jerk for saying this, but what’s held me back from buying any thus far is that I’m not all that into the colors of the vintage pieces (here’s a rather beautiful collection), at least in my house. I like the way those colors look in other people’s kitchens, but…well, you know me!
Is it weird that the prospect of having a couple of these guys sitting on an open shelf makes me feel a tiny bit less lazy about working on my kitchen renovation? But just a tiny bit…
