Becoming familiar with your new ruffoni
This 7 piece designed by The Pasta Queen and handcrafted by Ruffoni artisans includes everything you need to elevate your pasta making game.
Caterina, the 8qt copper pasta pot/stockpot lined with practical stainless steel, is the main character of The Pasta Queen by Ruffoni Collection. Rely on this strong pasta pot for the countless delicious meals you’ll make over a lifetime, and use the included pasta insert to save the precious pasta water (or “the Tears of the Gods”, as The Pasta Queen calls it): an essential ingredient to make extra velvety sauces that will cling to the pasta and coat it perfectly.
Pinuccia, the 4qt copper chef pan lined with easy-to-care for stainless steel, is designed to be your partner-in-crime for preparing the most amazing pasta sauces, but thanks to her versatile size and shape, she’s also ideal for browning vegetables, simmering stews, and thickening soups and reductions. Don’t forget to bring Pinuccia to the table to make "scarpetta" by mopping up all the sauce with bread when no one's watching!
Stella, the 12” stainless steel serving/frying pan, complements the copper cookware in The Pasta Queen by Ruffoni Collection while adding a pan that’s more spacious – for your larger cooking needs. Wider than Pinuccia, this shallow frying pan can be used to cook almost anything, whether you’re throwing together a delicious pasta carbonara, baking gratin vegetables as a side or searing proteins for an impressive main course. You can even grab the two handles and shift Stella from the stovetop to the oven for your pasta bake or fruit cobbler!
This set is made from solid copper and clad stainless steel – the materials of the Ruffoni tradition, hammered by our master artisans for increased strength and lasting beauty and internally lined with practical, easy-to-care-for stainless steel. The stainless steel handles are decorated with delicate leaves and the lids are topped with The Pasta Queen’s signature pasta crown, hand cast in solid bronze and silver-plated.

USE AND CARE FOR THE PASTA QUEEN 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. Stella may also be used on induction. Use a burner that is similar in diameter to the cookware, never heat the pot empty and do not exceed 230 C (450 F). To avoid scratching or dulling the polished surface, do not use knives, sharp kitchen tools, corrosive detergents and metal scouring pads.
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.
The silver-plated finial will naturally tarnish over time: use a silver-polishing cloth to restore its shine, or to polish more thoroughly remove from the lid by twisting the special screw - rotate the screw, not the finial, to prevent damage to the lid. Always hand-wash as dishwasher use would accelerate the silver tarnishing.
