Porcelain enamel is an ancient material - the first pieces of porcelain enamel found buried in Mycenae are 3,500 years old. Reiss enamel products has a rich tradition, with its roots dating back to the year 1550. That is when the original pan forge was founded in Ybbsitz in the Lower Austrian Mostviertel region. The manufacture of high-quality porcelain enamel kitchenware began here in 1922. Today, Julian Riess, Friedrich Riess and Susanne Riess, the ninth generation of the family, are at the helm of the company.
