Best Copper Cookware Sets

There is something about the bright bronze look of copper cookware that makes you think of rustic French kitchens where rows of pans hang gleaming over the range while the most delicious food is being whipped up.

If you can afford it, copper cookware lends a warmth to your kitchen. Modern copper cookware retains all the benefits of traditional copper pans (the speed at which it conducts heat and the way the heat is evenly distributed) whilst having stainless steel interiors so that the food is perfectly safe and the pans are easy to clean.

This page lists the best copper cook ware sets on the market.

  • a 6.25 quart casserole pan with cover
  • a 9.5 inch sauté pan

The pans are "tri-ply" - that is, they are copper on the outside, stainless steel on the inside, with aluminum sandwiched in-between to lend the pot strength and additional heat conductivity properties. The lids are made of stainless steel. You get a limited lifetime warranty with this set.

This set is the Rolls Royce of copper pan sets. The pans and lids are solid copper with stainless steel linings (so that only the stainless steel comes into contact with the food).

It's pricey, but you'll keep this set for a long time
