13.2 quarts Dutch Oven. Completely hand forged and tin lined by our master coppersmiths.
Hand-made by talented artisans, this pan is hardworking and great looking, moving from your stovetop to oven and even tabletop with classic culinary appeal.
The outside of gleaming copper reveals an interior lined with tin.
The lateral handles are iron casted and polished and the “Amoretti Essenziale “ handle on the lid completes a real work of art. Made with 1.5mm hand-made copper.
Since being used in the Renaissance courts, the copper pot can be considered
the "Queen of Pots" thanks to its beauty but also to its natural and excellent heat conductivity 392 Wm°K which allows the ideal temperature to be reached rapidly and to transfer evenly from the bottom of the pan to the sides. Flavors and nutritional values remain unchanged and the food doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan, avoiding hot spots and burning.
Chefs have always favored this metal because it is the best for cooking. Copper is indispensable for the perfect outcome of dishes requiring long cooking procedures, for delicate dishes and for confectionery creations.

It is true, copper will naturally darken without regular polishing, but with little care you can restore the shining of your pans in minutes.
For the exterior: use copper polish to keep copper from tarnishing and free from white spots.As a natural alternative, you can use a combination of lemon juice and salt and then wash it with fresh water. It will be spectacular again!
For the interior, hand washing is recommended. Hand wash with hot, soapy water and avoid using abrasive materials to clean, and in particular do not use bleach.
All copper cookware can be used on gas, electric, halogen stove tops, and in the oven.
Never heat empty tin-lined copper cookware or allow it to boil to a dry point, or add salt to your pan if the water is not completely boiled.
