Learn more about this Ruffoni
This 7 piece designed by The Pasta Queen and handcrafted by Ruffoni artisans includes everything you need to elevate your pasta making game.
Caterina, the 8qt copper Pasta Pot/Stockpot lined with practical stainless steel, is the main character of The Pasta Queen Limited Edition. Rely on this capacious Stockpot for making soups, stock and of course for boiling pasta. The included Pasta Insert will help you save the precious pasta water (or “the Tears of the Gods”, as The Pasta Queen calls it) – an essential ingredient to make extra velvety sauces that will cling to the pasta and coat it perfectly.
Pinuccia, the 4qt copper Chef Pan lined with easy-to-care for stainless steel, is designed to be your partner-in-crime for preparing the most amazing pasta sauces, but thanks to her versatile size and shape, she’s also ideal for browning vegetables, simmering stews, and thickening soups and reductions. Don’t forget to bring Pinuccia to the table to make "scarpetta" by mopping up all the sauce with bread when no one's watching!
Stella, the 12” stainless steel Serving/Frying Pan, complements the copper cookware in The Pasta Queen Limited Edition while adding a pan that’s more spacious – for your larger cooking needs. Wider than Pinuccia, this shallow Frying Pan can be used to cook almost anything, whether you’re throwing together a delicious pasta carbonara, baking gratin vegetables as a side, or searing proteins for an impressive main course. You can even grab the two handles and shift Stella from the stovetop to the oven for your pasta bake or fruit cobbler!
This set is made from solid copper and clad stainless steel – the materials of the Ruffoni tradition, hammered by our master artisans for increased strength and lasting beauty and internally lined with practical, easy-to-care-for stainless steel. The stainless steel handles are decorated with delicate leaves and the lids are topped with The Pasta Queen’s signature pasta crown, hand cast in solid bronze and silver plated.
Made in Italy.
Getting the most out of your Ruffoni Set
The ideal cookware set contains everything you need, and nothing you don't. Our 5-7 piece sets include all the essentials to start crafting delicious everyday meals in Ruffoni. They will be a treasured special gift for a wedding, birthday, or anniversary, or the perfect way to start your own Ruffoni collection.
We include a braiser because it's one of our favorite and most versatile cookware pieces. Use on the stove for a large batch of creamy risotto, or to gently simmer pasta sauces, then toss in the pasta to serve. Use directly in the oven for casseroles and pasta bakes. Or brown vegetables and sear meats and poultry on the stove, then finish into brasati, stews or roasts in the oven. Bring to the table and gather around with family and friends for beautiful family-style dining.
A small saucepan is also an essential ally in the kitchen. Boil peas and other vegetables, gently cook rice and grains, or even re-heat leftovers. Thanks to the great heat conductivity of all Ruffoni pieces, your saucepan will be perfect for simmering velvety sauces, gravies and reductions.
The frying pan is a practical kitchen workhorse that you will find yourself using throughout the day. Whether shallow-frying potatoes or sautéing vegetables and sides, browning proteins or cooking the perfect pancakes, the frying pan will always be in your hand, and hang beautifully on display when not in use. Remember that copper cookware shouldn't be pre-heated, and use a little oil or butter to prevent sticking.
Lastly, larger sets contain the soup pot: prepare homemade chicken stock, boil pasta for up to 4 people, or simmer tasty and healthy soups and minestrone.
Looking to expand your set for even more cooking possibilities? Our most popular additions are the chef pan, stockpot, and roaster.
Taking care of your Ruffoni the right way
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.
The silver-plated finial will naturally tarnish over time: use a silver-polishing cloth to restore its shine, or to polish more thoroughly remove from the lid by twisting the special screw - rotate the screw, not the finial, to prevent damage to the lid. Always hand-wash as dishwasher use would accelerate the silver tarnishing.
