Learn more about this Ruffoni
A classic with a twist. Fry pans are most often seen with one long stick handle - here, we replace that with two practical side handles, for a more convenient transition from stovetop to oven and tabletop. We also add a lid, so you can cook spinach and leafy greens in their own water, or simmer proteins, mushrooms and veg on low heat after browning.
Sauté fresh healthy greens or shallow-fry chicken, fish and vegetables in this naturally low-sticking pan. Sear meat in the open pan, or use the lid to steam veggies and potatoes on low flame.
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.
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 transition seamlessly from stovetop to tabletop, and can be proudly displayed to adorn any kitchen when not in use.
Made in Italy.
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
Getting out the most of your Ruffoni Roaster
A versatile roaster is a cookware wonder: it'll conduct heat beautifully, so you can get a great sear on meat and vegetables on the stovetop; it'll be generously sized and designed for the oven, allowing for longer cooks that slowly extract all flavors; and it'll look beautiful so you can proudly bring your creations to the table.
Around the Holidays, choose a beautiful copper roaster for a showstopping turkey. Come January, explore countless other recipes: a meat loaf, brisket, glazed ham or vegetables stuffed with rice and herbs. For a simple but delicious Italian roast, choose a flavorful meat such as beef, pork or lamb, or opt for poultry for a more delicate roast. Add diced potatoes and three or four garlic cloves, a good glug of olive oil, some rosemary, salt and pepper. A nourishing meal that will appeal to the whole family and fill your home with nostalgic aromas.
In lower, open roasters, you can cook and serve side vegetables like potatoes, carrots and swedes, or crisp up cobblers, french toast bakes and desserts. Choose a deep roaster instead to entertain guests or feed a large family: try your family's favorite casserole recipe, or toss parboiled pasta with bolognese sauce, bechamel and torn mozzarella, then top with a good grating of parmigiano for an irresistible pasta bake with a crunchy cheese crust.
All our roasters transition seamlessly from stovetop to oven to table, for a presentation with class to spare.
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 and 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.
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.
