Use & Care
HOW TO CLEAN COPPER
Copper is a "soft metal" which explains why it is the best heat-conducting metal of all metals.
Copper requires a little more care than most other cookware. While it is ok to let the copper exterior darken with age (otherwise known as "patina" or "verdigris"). A quality polish is recommended to maintain its warm glow.
Cleaning the inside of unlined copper is essential. To remove any verdigris on an unlined pan, use a vinegar-salt solution or rub it with lemon sprinkled with salt. Rinse and dry the pan.
If you have an iron-handled pan, rust on the handle may be scrubbed (a light gauge steel wool works well) off and then lightly oiled.
It's not advised to use a dishwasher for washing copper cookware due to the harsh chemicals used in some dishwashers that could shorten the life span of your cookware.
Never use cleaners containing bleach to clean copper cookware - bleach is corosive and will cause your cookware to pit.
There are two different options for cleaning your copper cookware:
- To maintain a shiny surface, clean after every use with Copperbrill cleaner
- To create a nice patina of copper, well appreciated by professionals, clean occasionnally with Copperbrill cleaner
Copper will naturally darken without regular polishing. But any time, you can use Copperbrill cleaner to recover the original shiny surface.
