No more warming milk in the microwave: Reach instead for a charming enamel milk pan. These vintage-style pans are safe for gas and electric ranges, have small spouts for easy pouring, and are perfectly sized for steaming milk, preparing a cup of hot chocolate, or warming bottles. Here are five of our favorite small pans for small jobs.
