To know whether it is safe to use copper, one needs to understand what this metal is all about.
Copper is an essential mineral in one’s body tissues, which along with iron aids in the formation of red blood cells. Copper also helps in maintaining the nerves, blood vessels, bones and immune system healthy. This mineral trace is found in some whole grains, shellfish, potatoes, dark leafy greens and dried fruit.
People often obtain their copper from the food they eat. The amount of copper a body needs is somewhere between 19 to 900 millicentigram for adults. Large amounts of copper, however, can be dangerous as they can become poisonous, which is why many people ask whether it is safe to cook in copper pots and pans.
Amoretti Brothers copper cookware are manufactured with a double layer of tin lining on the cooking surface.
Since everything we manufacture is hand-crafted, also the tin lining is added using a traditional handmade technique which guarantee that the process is made in the right way.
This to prevent any possible extra ingestion of copper in your body.
It is also important to say that some cooking preparation do not require a pan with a tin lining. For example a mixing bowl is usually without a tin lining because it is used for sweet foods, or jam. Other preparations like some vegetables (nopal in Mexico by example) need to be cooked on raw copper to be greener.
But what is the tin lining?

We add a double layer of 100% pure tin to give extra durability.

Also, copper can kill a type of virus known as a coronavirus that causes respiratory problems ranging from the mild discomfort of a common cold to potentially lethal pneumonia.
