Shropshire Made 6" (15cm) spun copper saucepan and lid with pure tin lining
Tin lined copper pans have been used in the kitchens of the world's finest restaurants since the 17th century and today are still found on the stoves of discerning cooks around the world.
Why are tin lined copper pans so good?
It's simply physics; copper is the most conductive engineering metal available. It's twice as conductive as aluminium and an amazing 25 times more conductive than stainless steel. Possibly its only rival is pure silver, which is 5% more conductive than copper and 100 times more expensive. Our tin lining is a magical material; it is very non-stick and it protects the copper from acidic food and corrosion. Tin doesn't taint food or hold strong flavours and is easily washed by hand.
