Learn more about this Ruffoni
A twist on a classic. The traditional frying pan design features one long stick handle, for tossing and flipping – here, it's replaced with two decorated side handles, for oven-to-table dining and entertaining. Use your serving frying pan to sauté fresh healthy greens or to sear proteins, cover it with its lid to steam and simmer on low heat or move the pan to the oven to roast meats, gratin side vegetables, and pasta bakes.
Made with best-in-class clad stainless steel: a thick core of super conductive aluminum alloy guarantees great responsiveness, ensuring food will not burn or overcook. The inside is lined in brushed stainless steel, practical and easy to clean, whilst the external stainless steel layer is induction-ready and hammered by our master artisans to ensure lasting beauty. The stainless steel handles are decorated with delicate leaves and the lid is crowned by a fennel, carrot and bean shaped knob, silver-plated by our partner silversmiths in Milan.
Made in Italy.

Getting out the most of your Ruffoni Roaster
A versatile roaster is a cookware wonder: it'll conduct heat beautifully, so you can get a great sear on meat and vegetables on the stovetop; it'll be generously sized and designed for the oven, allowing for longer cooks that slowly extract all flavors; and it'll look beautiful so you can proudly bring your creations to the table.
Around the Holidays, choose a beautiful copper roaster for a showstopping turkey. Come January, explore countless other recipes: a meat loaf, brisket, glazed ham or vegetables stuffed with rice and herbs. For a simple but delicious Italian roast, choose a flavorful meat such as beef, pork or lamb, or opt for poultry for a more delicate roast. Add diced potatoes and three or four garlic cloves, a good glug of olive oil, some rosemary, salt and pepper. A nourishing meal that will appeal to the whole family and fill your home with nostalgic aromas.
In lower, open roasters, you can cook and serve side vegetables like potatoes, carrots and swedes, or crisp up cobblers, french toast bakes and desserts. Choose a deep roaster instead to entertain guests or feed a large family: try your family's favorite casserole recipe, or toss parboiled pasta with bolognese sauce, bechamel and torn mozzarella, then top with a good grating of parmigiano for an irresistible pasta bake with a crunchy cheese crust.
All our roasters transition seamlessly from stovetop to oven to table, for a presentation with class to spare.
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. 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 and 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.
