Ideas for Use

Getting The Most Out of your Ruffoni Sauté

A sauté pan is a must in traditional European cooking. It has tall, vertical sides so that splatters are minimized, and a generous cooking surface making it perfect for browning and searing. Most sauté pans include a lid, which allows for slow simmering and stewing of tough meats and delicate sauces, and if large, it often has a helper handle so it's even easier to bring to the table for flawless presentation.

A sauté pan is of course great for sautéing freshly picked vegetables or proteins, so go ahead and try it with fresh asparagus tips, green peas, leeks and zucchini with butter, then deglaze with white wine and let reduce into a rich pan sauce. This shape is also perfect for browning and simmering, so sear chunks of meat and soffritto vegetables on medium heat, then add red wine, cover with the lid, and leave to gently bubble away on a low flame. Last but not least, a sauté pan is perfect for frying, as the vertical sides minimize splatters and large surface area avoids the building up of steam: prepare a traditional fried chicken, or make the most of your sauté pan's great temperature control by frying the perfectly flaky yet juicy fish with chips. You can use your sauté pan for almost any recipe, confidently: from crispy skinned chicken, to beef bolognese, from fried fish and chips to seared scallops and sautéed spring vegetables...without forgetting about fruit crisps and cobblers!

Use and Care for the Symphonia Cupra Collection

Taking care of your Ruffoni 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 & 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.
