High pot in hammered copper with handles and lid, made in Italy craftsmanship.

This solid copper deep pot is ideal for cooking in abundant liquid such as zampone and lentils, boiled meats, soups and soups. Made of hand-hammered and tinned copper, with lid and handles in solid brass, the design is a unique piece , as the object is born from an artisanal process according to the Italian tradition , made for centuries with the utmost attention to detail and unchanged expertise by coppersmiths.

Pot: hand hammered
Lid: hand hammered

In full respect of Italian tradition and quality , the entirely manual production is the result of a strong synthesis between passion and art that gives life to a unique and precious object.
Of exceptional quality and refinement, each object and each of its details are the result of careful processing carried out strictly by hand by master coppersmiths.
The copper cookware for culinary use, in fact, is entirely modeled by hand through   beating on specific iron poles with wooden mallets and special hammers for small productions, or with the lathe for larger ones.
This processing technique gives the copper an aesthetically embellished appearance, but above all makes it more resistant to wear , for a molecular hardening effect.
Subsequently, each product is tinned by hand over the fire, manually distributing the molten tin inside the cookware, so as to make it safe and hygienic.
Finally, cleaning and polishing are performed manually with biodegradable products, and finally polishing by brushing until a total brilliance is obtained.
Where necessary, the handles are fixed with rivets, to ensure a strong and lasting grip.
All these features make it an indispensable tool in particular for all those interested in haute cuisine.

The choice of materials is the first important starting point: a diligent selection is made to choose only materials of excellent quality.
So the copper used is pure copper, with the right physical qualities for perfect modeling. The brass for the handles comes from individual first choice ingots for artisanal casting and the tin used is 100% pure virgin suitable for food use, in compliance with the regulations and with a certificate of analysis.

The material:
Copper was the first metal to be worked by man. It is a practically indestructible noble metal with a high ecological value. This is why owning a copper kitchen utensil can mean owning a part of human history, which brings joy and charm in the preparation of meals and in the presentation of dishes.
Copper is suitable for long and accurate cooking due to its thermal conductivity which allows the heat to spread evenly over the entire pot and lid so that, once the desired temperature is reached, energy savings are obtained as it requires little heat.

Technical features and warnings:
  • Can be used for gas, radiant or electric cooking, preferably with low flames;
  • Do not use sharp objects in direct contact with the interior, we recommend wooden cutlery to avoid scratches in the tin plating;
  • Do not use steel wool pads for internal cleaning, in order to avoid the removal of the tin;
  • Washing in the dishwasher is not recommended to avoid complete oxidation of the copper;
  • Do not leave the instrument in direct contact with flames or plates without food or condiments inside;
  • Do not stack the pans on top of each other; it is advisable to hang them up.
NB: With continued use, copper will take on its characteristic antique color . For those who prefer shiny copper it is recommended to use (only outside) the vinegar and salt solution and rub in steel wool, or copper cleaning products, easily available on the market. Pond will also tend to darken but this natural reaction does not affect its hygiene. If the coating of the tin plating is no longer uniform, it will be essential to proceed with a new tin plating for which you can contact the supplier or experts in the sector directly. With the correct precautions indicated above, tin plating can last up to 9/10 years.

The possibility of periodically stagnating the interior and polishing it externally makes the container eternal : this is why these tools are often handed down from generation to generation.
