How to Cook with Copper and then... Clean it!

Professionals love copper cooking pots and pans because of their quick reaction time. Copper cooks faster and better because of its uniform conductivity, as it surrounds your food with uniform heat. It has about ten times the heat conductivity of stainless and glass, and twice that of aluminum, so only requires low to moderate heat to obtain the best results.

Copper develops a beautiful patina that many pros and home cooks prefer. However you can easily remove it with salt and lemon, and then wash with fresh water.

The pure tin lining is not reactive to acidic foods, it is not allergenic, does not rust, and can be easily refurbished, and at a very reasonable cost, compared with other metals. Being a soft metal, keep it in good condition by always having liquid in the pot before putting it on the heat, and use non-scarring utensils such as wooden, silicone or nylon. It may darken with use, however it does not affect its performance nor react with other foods subsequently cooked in the pot, and it can be cleaned.

With minimal care in its use and cleaning, it will become a heirloom to be treasured and used by subsequent generations.
