Italy is well known for hearty dishes, fried and sauteéd, but steam cooking is also popular nowadays to preserve foods’ nutritional properties and minimize the use of added fats.

For this reason, we created the steamer, an insert that will help you steam cook fish and vegetables, and will also be a precious ally for fun international recipes such as dumplings or baos.

Entirely made of stainless steel, it is suitable for Opus PrimaOpus Cupra, Symphonia Prima, and Symphonia Cupra soup pots, and can be safely washed in the dishwasher.

Made in Italy.

Use the steamer insert for all light and healthy fish, meats, and vegetable sides. Consider using a vegetable broth, chicken stock, or infused water as your steaming liquid to add a delicate additional flavor note as the food steams.

The steamer is also fundamental when it comes to cooking baos, gyozas and dumplings. Just rub the steamer with a thin layer of oil, set the timer and relax. Sometimes the most enjoyable recipes are also the simplest!

The Ruffoni Accessories

Pots and pans might be the kitchen’s main stars, but accessories and specialty pieces play a crucial supporting role. Some, such as the pasta insert and the warming stand are born as additions to main pieces and allow discerning home chefs to get even more use and enjoyment out of their collections. Others, like our jars and olivewood tools, don't need anything else: a lovely gift idea for a Ruffoni lover but also an elegant collection starter, suitable for anyone. Finally, some specialty items like the zabaglione bowl and jam pot honor antique confectionery traditions that rely on copper’s fantastic thermal and chemical properties in the making of caramel, jams and preserves, whisking egg whites and creating zabaglione.

Use and Care For The Opus Cupra 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. 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.

Silver Care

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.
