Learn more about this Ruffoni

When it comes to preparing polenta (Italian traditional cornmeal porridge), using a genuine copper paiolo (Polenta Pot) is essential. Copper's superior heat conductivity prevents lumps and ensures uniform cooking of the polenta, while its unmatched temperature control comes in handy for avoiding hot spots and preventing scorching. The peculiar shape of our Polenta Pot serves a specific purpose as well: its flared sides facilitate stirring and encourage the steady absorption of water into the cornmeal, resulting in a creamy texture.

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 handle, cast of solid bronze, is adorned by acorns and leaves: beautiful finishes ensure seamless stovetop-to-tabletop dining and entertaining.

A timeless piece that will transition seamlessly from stovetop to tabletop, and can be proudly hung on display to adorn any kitchen when not in use.

Made in Italy. 

A timeless classic

Historia, meaning 'history' in Latin, is perhaps Ruffoni's most iconic collection.

Truly a celebration of our shared culinary history, with this collection we relive centuries of tradition and honor exquisite craftmanship:

- 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

IDEAS FOR USE

Getting the most out of your Ruffoni Chef's Pan

There's a reason they call it the "Chef's" pan: taller than a frying pan, but lower than a stockpot, with a wide opening and gently rounded sides, this shape is a cookware wonder, the perfect tool for infinite recipes.

Sauté vegetables with one hand thanks to the high rounded sides, brown chunks of meat on the wide bottom then simmer gently into rich stews, or toss pasta to coat it with its thickened sauce.

While practical and versatile, the Chef pan really shines when making risotto: its wide base ensures a steady absorption of broth, so that all flavors are absorbed while water evaporates quickly, and the rounded sides ease stirring and prevent stubborn grains from getting stuck in the corners. Explore combinations of flavors, from porcini mushrooms and truffle to seafood, all kinds of cheese and vegetables.

Choose this convenient kitchen workhorse for a novice home chef's present or treat yourself: it's the perfect starting point for a copper collection that will grow over the years!

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 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.

Tin Care

Tin will naturally discolor over time, but remain equally effective. Depending on use, the tin lining may eventually wear off and requireretinning. Prolong the tin lining's life by not scratching it with metal tools, never overheating the cookware, and limiting the use of acidic ingredients.
