The oval low open roaster is ideal to roast meats, gratin side vegetables and crisp cobblers and desserts.
Quickly brown the skin side of chicken thighs over the stove, then flip and add rice, olives, capers, fresh herbs and stock, and cook in the oven until all the liquid is absorbed, the chicken is cooked and juicy and the rice fluffy for a delicious and impressive one pot meal. Or bake and gratin irresistible potato dauphinoise, with a creamy oozy center and golden crust. Choose this elegant oval roaster to serve your sweet potato bake at the Holidays, or to prepare the perfect summer cobbler with peaches and blackberries.

IDEAS FOR USE
GETTING THE MOST OUT 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.
Use and Care For The Historia 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.
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 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.
