This Stock Pot may look vintage, but it is the cutting edge of eco style, design & technology. There is more consideration & effort gone into creating this jug than brokering world peace. That's how much Riess wants you to enjoy it & feel good about your purchase! Watch the video in The Specs section & you'll know what we mean!
Handcrafted - Each Riess piece is handmade from a single section of the finest grade Austrian or German steel & coated with up to four layers of glass enamel. In order to be perfect, every piece not only requires enormous expertise, but also love of craftsmanship ... that's what you get from your Riess Stock Pot.
Planet Loving - Neutral environmental impact kitchenware exclusively made from natural materials is what Riess stands for, in fact today Riess is the only cookware manufacturer whose production shows a positive CO2 balance - to get that takes a whole lot of considered planning & implementation. Finally, after decades of use, & the time has come to discard your loved jug, it can be recycled into scrap metal. Got to love a pot that from start to finish has such a beautiful story to tell!
People Loving - Reiss has never paid mere lip service to social commitment: since 1930 it's provided company housing for employees that are struggling financially, & at the request of it's employees, restructured work hours from standard work hours to shift to provide a better work-family life balance ... & that's just scratching the surface!
