This saucepan from De Buyer’s Inocuivre Range is ideal for making sauces, browning butter, confiting garlic, melting chocolate, and anything else a saucepan can do—but better, because copper is the best conductor of heat, responding to changes in temperature quickly and evenly. Comprised of 90% copper with an inner lining of durable stainless steel (10%), which is non-reactive and does not need to be re-tinned (like other traditional copper saucepans, which are lined with tin). The long, riveted cast iron handle is of a traditional French design—please note that it gets very hot, and should be used with the support of a tea towel when needed. Suitable for the oven and all hobs except induction.

Why we love it
'A copper saucepan is my go-to for making Hollandaise, caramel, or any other foods that could go wonky if cooked a touch too little or too long. The heat responsiveness is exceptional.'

About The Brand
De Buyer is known internationally as a leader in professional and domestic cookware. Established in 1830, they have almost two centuries worth of experience in manufacturing metal (carbon steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminium, and more), and are excellent at adapting their products for modern kitchens, as exemplified by their range of silicone bakeware and induction-compatible copper pots and pans. In 2009 the French Ministry for the Economy, Finance and Industry presented de Buyer with the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (Living Heritage Company) Award, which recognises the company’s artisanal traditions and industrial excellence.
We have long been fans of their carbon steel Mineral B frying pans, designed to quickly reach the high temperatures ideal for searing, browning and grilling. We also carry items from their Inocuivre range of copper pans, as well as a wide selection of baking and pastry tools.Shop De Buyer
