Quite apart from the fact that copper cookware looks absolutely fabulous it is also practical.
Cook your potatoes with this beautiful copper potato steamer from Mauviel.
The Mauviel Cupretam Pour La Table Potato Steamer is simple to use, all you need to do is add water to the lower bowl and place the steamer on the stove top burner.
What happens next – well when the water reaches a mid-level boiling point the steam begins to form and rises through the main container holding the potatoes and softening them until they are steamed to perfection. Take the steamed potatoes out of the steamer and add your favorite topping to serve.
This method of cooking potatoes is much quicker than baking them and much healthier for you than fried potatoes.
The potato steamer is part of the Mauviel Cupretam Pour la Table range of cookware which is beautiful enough to serve from the stovetop to the table. The potato steamer has cast-iron or bronze side handles attached by sturdy copper rivets.
The Mauviel potato steamer is not suitable to use on an induction hob, but can safely be used on your standard gas or electric stove top.
It is recommended that The Mauviel Potato Steamer be hand washed with mild dish soap.

All-Clad is synonymous with quality and the Cop-r-Chef Braiser is no exception.
With a 4 quart capacity, this braiser is large enough to cook a meal for a big family or for when you are entertaining.
The domed lid seals in the moisture allowing the steam to return to the pan, keeping in all the moisture and flavor. And because the lid is domed you will find that the braiser allows you to easily fit in those larger cuts of meat.
The Cop-r-Chef braiser has an extra thick copper exterior with an inner core of pure aluminum not only on the bottom but also up around the sides for fast, even heating and the interior has a polished 18/10 stainless steel finish which will not react with food.
There are 2 stay-cool handles on the side of the pan that are attached with non-corrosive rivets.
This Cop-r-Chef braiser is beautifully finished so once you have taken it from the stove or the oven, it is stylish enough to serve at the table.
To keep your braiser looking good, hand washing is recommended.

Made in Italy, by Ruffoni, this exquisite Copper Risotto Pan has been hand hammered into the perfect shape for making risotto.
Evaporation is encouraged by the low sides of the pot and the wide surface helps the liquid to be absorbed. There is a wooden risotto spoon included that has a hole in the center so that as you stir the risotto the liquid is absorbed into the rice.
The Ruffoni Risotto Pan is made from copper which is an excellent heat conductor and the tin lined interior will not react with the food.
Once the risotto is cooked you can carry it to the table in this beautiful pan by hooking up the removable cast iron, stay cool handle.
The Ruffoni copper risotto pot has a 16 cup capacity and measures 10 !/4″” diameter and 2-7/8 inches high.
You will find that this is large enough to cook up a meal for a large group as it holds a generous 3 quarts.
But don’t limit yourself to only making tasty risotto in this beautiful pan, you can also whip up other yummy meals as the Ruffoni risotto pan can be safely used on both the cooktop and in the oven.
This is a beautiful pan that will not only enhance your cooking experience but will make a lovely addition to your kitchen, more so as the gleaming copper develops the patina that age brings.
