Rectangular Roaster - 14"
In Italy, a succulent, slow cooked roast is typical for Sunday family get-togethers. We choose lamb, veal or beef and serve it alongside roasted potatoes and vegetables. Generous portions are never a problem, as on Monday we can create delicious meatballs with the leftovers! The rectangular roaster, thanks to its generous size and domed lid, is ideal for this! Of course, all kinds of roast turkeys, chicken, ham, meatloves and vvegetables will all be at home in this spacious, solid copper roaster 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 transition seamlessly from stovetop to oven and finally serve at the table, and can be proudly displayed to adorn any kitchen or dining room table when not in use.
Made in Italy.
Choose a flavorful meat such as beef, veal 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. The typical Italian roast is as simple as it is delicious: a rich meal that will appeal to the whole family and that will fill your home with nostalgic aromas.
Come Holiday time, the rectangular roaster will be your trusty companion for a showstopping turkey. Come January, you can use the rectangular roaster for many other recipes: a meat loaf, briskets, glazed hams, creamy pasta bakes or rice and herbs stuffed vegetables.
Our rectangular roaster can move elegantly from stovetop to oven to table, for a presentation with class to spare.
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.
