Why Copper Bottom Pots & Pans?

Found This Helpful

Burnished copper cookware is one of many choices for kitchen pots and pans. While copper pans are attractive, they also have some other benefits to consider as well.

Appearance

  • Copper cookware typically consists of stainless steel bodies with very shiny copper bottoms. It is often chosen for its appearance when used on hanging pot racks.

Heat Conduction

  • Copper is an excellent conductor of heat among non-precious metals. While it can be more pricey than other metals, it provides a uniform, even conducting surface for cooking.

Manageable Weight

  • Copper cookware has a manageable weight, which makes it attractive to busy chefs. Copper pans sit securely on burners; they can also easily be turned, flipped and picked up with one hand.

Ease of Cooking

  • During cooking, the temperature of a copper pot changes immediately when the temperature of the stove top changes. This provides ease in cooking and makes it especially easy to braise and brown foods.

New Cleaning Products

  • In the past, copper pots and pans were difficult to keep clean and shiny. However, a variety of new products on the market make it easy to keep copper pans shiny.
