Decorated Fry Pan - 11"
The frying pan allows you to sauté vegetables, sear meats and shallow-fry almost any kind of ingredient. The tin-lined inside is naturally low-stick, perfectly suited to cook delicate foods like eggs and fish and the cast bronze handle, decorated with artichokes, makes it special enough to serve directly at the table.
Crafted in solid copper for superior heat conductivity, hand-hammered and tin-lined by hand over fire — so naturally low-stick. The riveted stick handle is cast in solid bronze and decorated with artichokes.
A timeless piece that will transition seamlessly from stovetop to tabletop, and can be proudly hung on display to adorn any kitchen when not in use.
Made in Italy.
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.
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. Its peculiarity is the handle, decorated with artichokes, which makes it perfect for bringing it from the stove to the table, allowing your family and guests to enjoy your food while it's still piping hot.
Use tip: remember that copper cookware never needs to be pre-heated, and always use a bit of oil or butter to prevent sticking.
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.
I have this pan, and I only choose to use it sometimes, I use the stainless mauviel for most. I own this mostly for it's looks. Beautiful. it's a piece of art.
Copper responds quickly to heat without any hot spots. It is my favorite pan for frying an egg with a touch of olive oil. The lower temperature brings out the best in the hen's creation. We have found that the taste is superior to an egg cooked in copper lined with stainless steel. The brass artichoke handle is exquisite. The shape ideal for flipping. The Mauviel CopperBrill makes cleaning a snap. The pan may need to be re-tinned in ten years? But that is many delicious meals away.
This is my go-to pan for almost everything. It distributes heat well, maintains an even heat, and cleans up like a dream. I've been using this pan from Ruffoni for 4 years or so and absolutely love it. The person here who rated it 3 stars having never cooked in it is unfair. How can you rate a pan used for cooking by looking at it? Ruffoni makes very high quality cookware, one of the best in my experience and I've been cooking extensively for over 40 years.
This pan browns foods beautifully! Its heat responsiveness is really high, allows me to control the temperature and cooks foods evenly.
