Oval Low Braiser - 15"
Designed to seamlessly transition from the stovetop into the oven, and finally serve at the table, our oval low braiser is a perfect mix of practicality and elegance. Perfect for roasting vegetables and baking delicious gratins, the low braiser with its domed lid is also ideal to prepare and serve juicy pork loins, chicken tighs and other meat and poultry.
Crafted in solid copper for superior heat conductivity, hand-hammered and tin-lined by hand over fire — so naturally low-stick. The riveted handles are cast in solid bronze, and the lid is crowned by Ruffoni's signature acorns and leaves.
A timeless piece that will transition seamlessly from stovetop to tabletop, and can be proudly displayed to adorn any kitchen when not in use.
Made in Italy.
Roast potatoes with garlic and rosemary; gently caramelize carrots and swede with a touch of thyme and honey; create bubbly, oozy, cheesy cauliflower gratins...Or roast a pork loin, chicken tights with the skin on, or other meats but searing them gently on the stove then moving to the oven with the lid on to slowly cook until pull-apart tender.
Our oval low braiser can move elegantly from stovetop to oven to table, so you can serve your sides or main family-style and savour while it's still hot.
Recommended for use on gas stovetops, open flames (wood, charcoal, barbecue) and in the oven - electric cooktops also possible. Never heat the pot empty and do not exceed 220 C (430 F). Bronze handles will get hot: always use pot holders while cooking. Use wood or plastic tools to avoid scratching the tin lining.
Hand-wash with a soft sponge and mild detergent, and dry immediately with a soft cloth.
With use, copper develops a rich patina over time that many love and cherish. To restore a polished shine, use a good copper polish (like Ruffoni Cleaner) or salt with lemon juice/vinegar.
Tin will naturally discolor over time, but will remain equally effective. Depending on use, the tin lining may eventually wear off and require retinning. Prolong the tin lining's life by not scratching it with metal tools, never overheating the cookware, and limiting the use of acidic ingredients.
