Cooking and baking with copper utensils

Cookware made of copper is one of the best you can afford for your kitchen. The thermal conductivity of this unique metal is many times better than that of iron or stainless steel, which means that the heat is distributed absolutely evenly across the material. This makes searing and cooking food easy and energy efficient, while the risk of burning and overcooking your ingredients is kept to a minimum with copper cookware. The same benefits allow copper to shine in baked goods. Small cakes, soufflés or puddings are much easier to make, and canelés made from copper molds impress with their crisp, caramelized shell and fluffy, soft center.

Boiling down with copper. The advantages

Jam pot copper

The material (more precisely: the copper ions) interact with the sulfur compounds in the fruit, which retains its natural, often vibrant colors even after cooking. Secondly, this interaction also produces a better gelling effect, so that less sugar can be used from the outset. And thirdly, because of copper's superior thermal conductivity, scorching is also less likely to occur, as the heat supply can be quickly regulated. There is no need to fear a metallic aftertaste in the jam or jelly, as the fruit acids are softened by the sugar. For the reasons mentioned, the jam pot is not lined with stainless steel on the inside, but the wall thickness here is also a proud two millimeters and the cast-iron handles are firmly riveted on.

Our copper tableware. Profitable and easy to clean

In the catering trade, cookware from Falk is valued not only because of the superior thermal conductivity of copper - with the physiologically safe stainless steel lining on the inside and the matt brushed surfaces on the outside, it is also easy to clean and requires little maintenance. Our copper cookware is suitable for all types of stoves - with the exception of stoves with induction heat. We offer a suitable adapter for induction cooktops. The ergonomically shaped, cast-iron handles are riveted on these copper pots and pans; the stainless steel rivets are still annealed before pressing in order to obtain a perfectly tight riveted joint. Spout rims facilitate handling of the heavy copperware.

Copper combined in a new way. Cookware suitable for induction

Copper and induction do not normally go well together. There is a simple reason for this: the precious metal is not magnetic. A cast-iron plate can be used as a makeshift adapter, but this impairs the outstanding heat conductivity for which copper is so highly regarded by professional cooks (since the heat supply can no longer be regulated 1:1 and without a time delay). Or you can keep it like the innovative manufacturer Falk in Belgium, who developed this cookware by laying a two-millimeter-thick layer of copper inside - in the core of the pots and pans. All the vessels in the series have a three-layer structure; the aforementioned copper core is bordered on both sides by stainless steel, and the easy-care satin-finished exterior is ferromagnetic. This means that the cookware can also be used on induction hotplates without any restrictions in terms of heat distribution, enabling energy-saving cooking there too. As with the other pots from Falk that we carry in our program, rolled sheets are the preliminary product, which are later deep-drawn by machine. The stainless steel handles are riveted and spout rims facilitate handling. The cookware with copper core is available exclusively from Manufactum.

A good whipping bowl must be made of copper....

Small whipping bowl copper

... on the one hand because of the metal's outstanding thermal conductivity, which is essential for fast and precise heating and cooling in the patisserie. And on the other hand, because a really stable, yellowish creamy egg white can really only be produced in a copper bowl: The mechanical movement during beating changes the structure of the conalbumin proteins in the egg white, copper ions stabilize them - and thus durable egg whites are produced (while minimizing the danger of "overbeating", in which the proteins coagulate and clump together).

Specialist for higher percentage. Copper mug

Copper mug with brass handle

Vodka, ginger beer and a squeeze of lime juice - that was the flavor combination that helped Russian brandy from the Smirnoff distillery achieve lasting success in the USA in the 1940s. Moscow Mule was the name given by its inventors to the uncomplicated long drink, which is still traditionally served in copper drinking vessels. Mug and rivet copper, brass handle. Volume 380 ml. Height 8 cm, Ø 8.5 cm.
