Sizes of Royal Worcester Coddlers Produced

Royal Worcester (RW) produced four size of coddler - in increasing capacity.

The Standard Size was designed to prepare one egg. It nominally measures 3½ inches from the base to the top of the lifting ring, but there can be considerable variation - especially in the earlier coddlers, such as those with Type 1 backstamps. With the lid off, the coddler body stands nominally 2½ inches tall. This size can also be used to warm up an individual serving of baby food. RW no longer produces this size of coddler.

The King Size was designed to prepare two eggs. It measures 4 inches from the base to the top of the lifting ring. With the lid off, the coddler body stands 3¼ inches tall. It is approximately 2½ inches in diameter. This is currently the only size of coddler that RW produces.

The Jumbo Size was designed to replace the maxime (see below), intended for a small individual meal, such as a small stew. It measures 4¾ inches from the base to the top of the lifting ring. With the lid off, the coddler body stands 35/8 inches tall - the same height as the maxime. It is approximately 3¼ inches in diameter, about a half inch narrower than the maxime. RW no longer produces this size of coddler.

The Maxime Size was designed to prepare a small individual meal, such as a small stew. It measures 5¼ inches from the base to the top of the lifting ring. With the lid off, the coddler body stands 35/8 inches tall. It is approximately 3¾ inches in diameter. Royal Worcester no longer produces this size of coddler.
