Fish Kettle - 20"
The Ruffoni fish kettle is a stunning unique piece. Thanks to its extended length and extra-tall sides, it is especially designed for the delicate poaching of a whole big fish, while the included rack makes for easy removal of the cooked dish without breaking it. Of course you can get creative and make anything else in it too!
Crafted in solid copper for superior heat conductivity, hand-hammered and tin-lined by hand over fire — so naturally low-stick. The riveted handles are cast in solid bronze, and the lid is crowned by Ruffoni's signature acorns and leaves.
A timeless piece that will be the showstopper at the center of a special dinner and effortlessly decorate a large stove, dining table or sideboard when not in use.
Made in Italy.
While the presentation will be stunning, the preparation of poached fish is rather simple: choose lean fish such as cod, sole, snapper, or halibut or go for a fattier fish like salmon or trout. Incorporate some flavours in your poaching liquid: you can't go wrong with a mediterranean flavor combination, using garlic, fennel, olive oil and bay leaves, but also try your hand at a more exotic poach, with ingredients like coconut milk, lime, thai curry paste, ginger and garlic. For the traditionalists, a well-seasoned court bouillon is always a winner!
Bring your Ruffoni fish kettle to the table for the wow factor, then clean and portion the fish for your guests. When not in use, the Ruffoni fish kettle will be a showstopping decoration on your stovetop, dining table or sideboard.
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.
