Our copper kitchenware comes from one of the old smithies in Villedieu-les-Poêles, a small town in Normandy with a centuries-old tradition of household copperware production. Needless to say, their products are ‘classics’ – made, for example, with proper 2.5 mm-thick copper: no nonsense with the modern trend for steel or aluminium covered with a wafer-thin copper coating! Their pots and pans are hand-shaped and, true to tradition, finished with solid cast-iron handles.
A bain-marie for preparing delicate sauces. The
water is heated in the base section; the upper pan
is porcelain coated. Most hobby chefs can only ever dream of owning a copper bain-marie.
Due to its small size and capacity, the copper here is only 1.5 mm thick. Height with lid 15.5 cm, 12 cm dia., volume of base 1 l, volume of pan 0.85 l.
Weight 1,6 kg.
Invicta pots from the French cast iron manufacturer are protected with enamel: The casseroles (Mijoteuses) are translucently enamelled and they are so attractive that they make perfect oven-to-tableware. All Invicta bases are 4 mm thick, the walls are 2-3 mm thick.
The bases of the casseroles are cast with a slight concavity of 0.5 mm, which leads to overall contact of the base with the heat source, once the pots have heated up. The dishes have condensation lids: steam rising in the dishes is cooled with cold water or ice cubes in the lid, the steam condenses and drips back into the food - the meat remains moister, the vegetables tender. The food retains more of its flavour, the best seal of approval for fine cuisine.
