Absolutely, you can definitely share some pics or stories about your Descoware…
I got my cookware from my best friends mom because she could not lift them anymore. It is my everyday cooking tool, I just love it. Heating and cooking items and letting it simmer for an hour until I’m ready to eat. Found your site looking for handles, mine are wearing out. The only thing that I have found to make them still work is to soak them in water for a day with a little olive oil. This makes the wood expand and the oil keeps it in I guess.
I tried to e-mail pictures and to ask a question about a piece of Descoware I recently obtained but your e-mail as it is written on the site will not go through.
I have a Descoware cast iron pot enameled off-white on the inside, bright red-orange on the outside (kind of two-toned red faded to orange. The pot measures 12″ in diameter and comes with the original lid. It says “Made in Belgium” on the bottom and I always thought it was a Le Crueset. After closer inspection, it is a Descoware. This was my mom’s pot, no doubt from the mid-late 1960’s or the early-mid 1970’s. I use the pot frequently for soups, meatball and tomato sauce, and for braising meats. It’s a great pot. Do you still want photos?

I WAS GIVEN A FRYING PAN BY A 3RD COUSIN, ON THE BOTTOM IT SAYS DESCOWARE MADE IN BELGUIM, ITS A POWDER BLUE WITH LITTLE BLUE FLOWERETTS AROUND IT SAME FOR THE TOP
CAN ANYONE PLEASE TELL ME THE DATE/ERA OF THIS PAN?
I emailed email@example.com pictures of my 10 piece chocolate brown set. Did you receive the email and the attached photos?
My husband got a skillet with a wooden handle in a box from an auction. I was just wondering a little bit about it. How much we should sell it at and some of the history. It is yellow with different pictures on it. Like a cow, fish, grapes, cheese, watermelon. A little bit of everything I think. The side of the pan says Markley if that helps. I will try and send some pictures.
Hi Amanda! Ebay didn’t get rich by delivering no value. Yours is a desirable item and 1 dollar starting prices are proven to work. Most pieces sell in the $20 range. Very rare (sorry, yours isn’t) can go as high as $150.
Thought you might like these pictures of 44 year old set.
Still in active use.
Just bought 2 Descoware Made in Belgium pot and pan, both white Enamel on the inside and red/orange on the outside for $10/set at Salvation Army.. I fell in love at first sight. Where can I post pictures?
Just bought at tag sale in Bridgeport ct for $1. Cleaned up nicely
Got three really fantastic pieces at Goodwill (for $12.99). . . they are all awesome. All Markley and they were in fantastic condition. Then I got crazy and bought a small casserole or maybe its a smallish dutch oven I dunno but it seemed too small to be very useful for a long while after I spent $5o on it. Not anymore!
I was making microwaved popcorn and enjoying it till my husband pointed out that there are seriously nasty chemicals involved, etc. which is a concern for the little one. And so I set off to see about old fashioned popcorn (but I was not looking forward to buying another piece of equipment to take up cabinet space). On the bag of popcorn kernels it says to just use a pot with a lid, put a couple Tbsp. oil in the pan and add 1/3 C. kernels and shake the pot over med.-high hear till till it is done popping. The smallish pot is absolutely P E R F E C T for this. The popcorn doesn’t burn, 1/3 C. is the exact right amount (as recommended on the bag) and I have a use for the most pricey piece I have. So now I am using it more… made Collard Greens the other day (they simmer SO long that the water or broth tends to dry out in my other stock pot and I have burned them more than once). They turned out absolutely perfect too! They did not dry out and were done in 1/2 the time.
I only use cast iron if I can. It is the best, bar none.
My fiances’ Aunt was cleaning out her late husbands “junk ” from the sheds in the backyard. In the dumpster she had BOXES of these pans. They are in original boxes and i am so curious about what we actually grabbed ! Unfortunately we didnt grab them all 🙁
I bought a yellow (6-8 gaunt approx.) Cooking pot w/ lid from an estate sale for $3. I love it. By far the best cook ware I have ever owned. I would like.
It is a Dutch oven that I bought not a pot. I would love to own more!
It is a Dutch oven (6-8 quart) that I bought not a pot.
I RECEIVED A SET OF THREE BRIGHT YELLOW DESCOWARE CASSEROLE DISHES IN GRADUATED SIZES(BIG,MEDIUM,SMALL] WHEN WE WERE MARRIED IN 1958. WAS VERY UNHAPPY WHEN THE MOVERS LOST THE LARGE ONEWHEN WE MOVED TO MISSOURI IN 1971. THOUGHTS ABOUT REPLACING IT? THEY HAVE BELGIUM MARK ON BOTTOM.
