Chef pan with spoon - 4qt
The chef pan is the ultimate risotto-making cookware. But thanks to its versatile size and shape, this kitchen workhorse is also optimal for sauteing vegetables, browning then simmering stews, and thickening sauces and soups.
Crafted in solid copper for superior heat conductivity, hand-hammered and tin-lined by hand over fire so naturally low-stick. The riveted handles, cast of solid bronze, are adorned by acorns and leaves: beautiful finishes ensure seamless stovetop-to-tabletop dining and entertaining. Includes a special risotto stirring spoon crafted in cherrywood: the traditional circular opening helps to avoid overstirring thus facilitating the perfect creamy consistency.
Made in Italy.
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). 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 restored 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.
