This beautiful little Mauviel copper pot is just too good to leave in the kitchen - it's perfect for melting a little butter or chocolate, to cook a single poached egg or reduce a little 'sauce a deux'. Also gorgeous to serve hot chocolate or caramel sauces at the table.Please note: The matching lid is sold separately. Recognized as the leader in fine French copper cookware since 1830, Mauviel pans are prized by professional chefs for their even heating and fast response to temperature changes. The butter pot may be small but it stands with elegance against all others.
Featuring an extremely conductive layer of the highest-quality copper with an inner aluminum that holds and spreads the heat evening, creating a non-reactive, easy-clean stainless steel cooking surface. Made from bilaminated copper stainless steel (90% copper and 10% 18/10 stainless steel), this allows high performance within your pan that heats evenly and much faster than other metals. The non-reactive 18/10 stainless steel interior preserves the taste and nutritional qualities of foods and is easy to clean. 9cm diameter. Made in France.
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.
HISTORY OF MAUVIEL COPPER
In 1830, in a Normandy village called Villedieu-les-Poêles, which is located near the Mont-Saint-Michel, Mr. Ernest Mauviel established the Mauviel manufacturing company.
