A few things to know about cooking with copper: Copper is fast and nimble. Its conductivity makes it sensitive to temperature changes, responding immediately when a cook raises or lowers heat, allowing you to precisely control the cooking process. It’s part of what chefs love about it. Said another way, it heats quickly and evenly, preventing food from sticking or cooking irregularly. These pans can handle the high heat needed for searing and browning flawlessly, or settle into a long simmer just as well. 

A very thin stainless steel lining provides a food-safe cooking surface without inhibiting the conductivity of the copper. The lining will not rust, tarnish, or oxidize, and resists scratching; unlike more common tin-lined copper cookware, unless damaged, these pots will never need to be refinished inside. The exterior is polished to a soft gleam and finished by a triple-riveted brass handle. 

French manufacturer de Buyer has produced revered cookware according to exacting standards since 1830. These pans are designed for professional use, with aesthetics and effortless functionality in mind. With proper care, these pans will serve for generations.

These pans can be used on any style of cooking surface except induction.

Care: Wash gently by hand, and dry with a soft cloth. If desired, the copper exterior can be polished as needed using polishing paste—though we find the soft patina that develops with regular use beautiful. Do avoid storing the pan against items that could scratch its surface.

Crafted in France.
