Serving Frying Pan - 11"
- Ideal for sautéing and shallow-frying but also wilting and simmering
- Crafted in solid copper for unparalleled heat conductivity
- Hammered for increased strength and lasting beauty
- Tin-lined by hand over fire
- Made in Italy
A classic with a twist. Fry pans are most often seen with one long stick handle - here, we replace that with two practical side handles, for a more convenient transition from stovetop to oven and tabletop. We also add a lid, so you can cook spinach and leafy greens in their own water, or simmer proteins, mushrooms and veg on a low heat after browning.
Sauté fresh healthy greens or shallow-fry chicken, fish and vegetables in this naturally low-sticking pan. Sear meat in the open pan, or use the lid to steam veggies and potatoes on low flame.
Crafted in solid copper for superior heat conductivity, hammered for increased strength and lasting beauty 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.

Ideas for Use
Getting the most out of your Ruffoni Fry Pan
A good fry pan allows you to sauté vegetables, sear meats and shallow-fry almost any kind of ingredient. Constructed of solid copper or highly conductive clad stainless steel, Ruffoni fry pans are also well suited to cook delicate foods.
Our fry pan is a practical and versatile kitchen ally that you will find yourself using at different times of the day for the most different recipes. Let the children wake up to the smell of freshly made pancakes for a sweet Sunday treat, and fry some eggs for the grown-ups. Come lunch time, use to sauté all kind of veggies, then sear and pan fry chicken breast or cod fillets and fries for a quick and delicious dinner.
For even more flexibility, pick a fry pan with lid: wilt spinach and other leafy greens in their own water, then finish open, with a splash of cream and freshly cracked black pepper. Gently roast peppers, onions, tomatoes and spices for a deliciously caramelized shakshuka, then crack in some eggs and cover with the lid to firm up the whites.
Our serving shape, with two side handles, is especially designed to sit at the center of a crowded table and serve piping-hot food in style. Or pick a frying pan with the traditional long stick handle and hang it on display, so it adorns your kitchen and is always within reach.
Use tip: remember that copper cookware never needs to be pre-heated, and always use a bit of oil or butter to prevent sticking.
A Timeless Classic

Historia, meaning 'history' in Latin, is perhaps Ruffoni's most iconic collection.

- Each item is skillfully crafted from a single sheet of copper for maximum heat conductivity and superior temperature control
- Hammered by our master coppersmiths to ensure increased stregth and lasting beauty
- Internally lined by hand over fire with the purest, durable nonreactive tin so naturally low-stick
- Bronze handles are individually cast and attached with durable stainless steel rivets

- Heirloom quality items, worthy of being handed down through generations
- Lifetime Warranty

Use and Care For The Historia Collection
Taking care of your Ruffoni the right way
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.
Washing & Polishing
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 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.
