Mauviel Copper "Fait Tout" Saucepan

Mauviel Copper "Fait Tout" Saucepan

I love copper pots and pans, and this one is my favorite. Also called an Evasée or Windsor pan, it’s made by Mauviel in France of 2.5 mm. thick copper, tin lined. It has a thick iron handle that never seems to get hot. The sloping sides make it easy to stir the entire bottom of the pot and the wide surface area reduces the time it takes to “cook down” a sauce. Copper is one of the finest conductors of heat, and the thick copper of this pan spreads that heat evenly, without hot spots that could burn your food. It’s as heavy as a truck, as responsive as a ballerina, and the burnished color of the copper is satisfying to my soul. Bury me with this one!
