RE: The tariff classification of an enameled cookware set from China

Dear Ms. Galins:

In your letter dated July 15, 1999, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample you provided is a 3-piece cookware set, containing a stockpot, a strainer insert and a lid. The stockpot is 9.4375 inches in diameter and 7 inches in height. It holds 7.68 quarts. The strainer insert is of a slightly smaller size so that it may fit into the pot. The lid, likewise, is made to fit the strainer insert. Each of these items is made of steel coated with a blue porcelain enamel.
