The classic fry pan is an all-day maverick that will accompany the home chef from breakfast to dinner, whilst the covered saucepan will allow you to simmer sauces and reductions without splatter. The perfectly sized braiser comes with a decorated lid to transition seamlessly from stovetop to oven to tabletop, for effortless cooking and impressive presentation. Finally, the accessories are designed to ensure the best use of the cookware: the cherrywood utensils will not scratch the tin-lined interior, and the Ruffoni cleaner has been especially formulated to remove tarnish and restore the copper's shine.
The covered braiser, the fry pan and the covered saucepan are 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. Their riveted handles are cast in solid bronze, and the lids are crowned by Ruffoni's signature acorns and leaves. The set is completed by practical cherrywood utensils and Ruffoni's copper cleaner and delivered in a stunning wooden gift box.

IDEAS FOR USE
GETTING THE MOST OUT OF YOUR RUFFONI SET
The ideal cookware set contains everything you need, and nothing you don't. Our 5-7 piece sets include all the essentials to start crafting delicious everyday meals in Ruffoni. They will be a treasured special gift for a wedding, birthday, or anniversary, or the perfect way to start your own Ruffoni collection.
We include a braiser because it's one of our favorite and most versatile cookware pieces. Use on the stove for a large batch of creamy risotto, or to gently simmer pasta sauces, then toss in the pasta to serve. Use directly in the oven for casseroles and pasta bakes. Or brown vegetables and sear meats and poultry on the stove, then finish into brasati, stews or roasts in the oven. Bring to the table and gather around with family and friends for beautiful family-style dining.
A small saucepan is also an essential ally in the kitchen. Boil peas and other vegetables, gently cook rice and grains, or even re-heat leftovers. Thanks to the great heat conductivity of all Ruffoni pieces, your saucepan will be perfect for simmering velvety sauces, gravies and reductions.
The frying pan is a practical kitchen workhorse that you will find yourself using throughout the day. Whether shallow-frying potatoes or sautéing vegetables and sides, browning proteins or cooking the perfect pancakes, the frying pan will always be in your hand, and hang beautifully on display when not in use. Remember that copper cookware shouldn't be pre-heated, and use a little oil or butter to prevent sticking.
Lastly, larger sets contain the soup pot: prepare homemade chicken stock, boil pasta for up to 4 people, or simmer tasty and healthy soups and minestrone.
Looking to expand your set for even more cooking possibilities? Our most popular additions are the chef pan, stockpot, and roaster.
A Timeless Classic
The Historia Collection
Historia, meaning 'history' in Latin, is perhaps Ruffoni's most iconic collection. Each shape has been created by our master coppersmiths in the same way as cooking vessels were manufactured in royal castles and palaces upon the request of court cooks. Truly a celebration of our shared culinary history, with this collection we relive centuries of tradition and honor exquisite craftmanship:
- 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
- Handles and lids are enriched with finials in exquisite shapes such as acorns, artichokes, vegetables and animals to bring warmth and elegance to any table
- Heirloom quality items, worthy of being handed down through generations
- Lifetime Warranty
- Made in Italy
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.
