Ideas For Use

Getting the most out of your Ruffoni Stockpot

Stockpots are approximately as tall as they are wide: a clever proportion that maximizes their capacity, meaning you can cook plenty of food at once.

Fill with water and any veggies found wondering at the back of the fridge for a light and tasty homemade vegetable stock, or add meat and bones for delicious homemade stock which can be used in any number of dishes (our favorite: risotto!). Alternatively, make a flavor base with soffritto, then layer on your favorite seasonal vegetables and simmer gently for endless soup options, nourishing and satisfying. The stockpot can also be used to gently simmer grains or prepare oatmeal for breakfast, or take a page out of all nonnas' book and mix vegetables, legumes and short pasta for a nourishing minestrone that the whole family will enjoy.

Bring directly to the table to keep your soup warm until serving and elevate any simple supper to special occasion. Store your stockpot right on the stovetop or on a display shelf when not in use to enjoy its warm shine every time you walk into your kitchen.

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

Cooking

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 Care

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.
