Benefits of Copper Cookware

Not many things are more gorgeous to a chef in the kitchen, whether you actually use it or not.

Copper cookware has a shiny luster all it’s own. Often handed down from generation to generation, copper cookware wins out.

On the other hand, this cookware isn’t just beautiful – there are more reasons it should be sought after!

Being an energy saver is just the beginning when it comes to this type of cookware. It evenly conducts heat and holds heat meaning from any heating source, it’s going to effectively use that heat and cook your food faster.

Because cookware like what you can get from Ruffoni brand, heats evenly, it makes cooking foods that can be difficult or burn easily a cinch!

Tip: When simmering stews and chili, using a copper pot reduces the chance of the bottom burning.

The only foods you really shouldn’t cook inside of copper are acidic foods like tomatoes, lemons and the like. The copper will get discolored because minerals leach out of the copper and the acidic food stains them.

When cleaning cookware like Ruffoni copper, you may need to use a bit of elbow grease at times when the copper seems to be discoloring.

You can either use a copper paste that often has chemicals in it, or you can go the natural way. You can use vinegar or lemon and salt, even ketchup and banana peels have been talked about that work fabulously well.

So, in the case of copper cookware, all that glitters may not be gold; it may be copper and be your “golden egg” in the kitchen!

  1. I’ve always loved copper cookware – it’s so beautiful…

    I’ve never actually seen my grandmother or mother actually cook with it though.

    I would love to get some for my kitchen, but didn’t know where to start. Thank you!
