There is a good reason so many chefs idolise copper: It conducts heat impeccably. In chef-speak, that means quickly and evenly, responding to changes in temperature in an instant. But because copper does not naturally attach to magnetic induction hobs, it takes a bit of expert engineering to make induction-friendly copper work—and Mauviel, with their 190+ years of experience, has done just that with their M’6S range. This saucepan and non-stick frying pan are clad, from base to edge, with two layers of stainless steel for durability and easy clean-up; three layers of aluminium for excellent heat-responsiveness; and an outer layer of copper for perfect performance. The non-stick frying pan is coated with three layers of PFOA-free Eclipse coating for easy release, and both pans have flared rims for easy pouring. (For more on caring for non-stick pans, read our guide.) This is a wonderful introductory cookware set, ideal for a gift.
Mauviel M’6S pans have an outer layer of pure copper that’s soft by nature, and thus prone to scratches and should be handled carefully. They are finished by hand. The pans (including handles) often have minor abrasions, small black marks or scuffs as a result. These are considered normal and do not have any impact on performance and durability.
Why we love it
‘Copper is a perfectionist’s metal. Because it responds so diligently to heat, you’re able to control the exact colour and texture you want your food to be, knowing that the moment you take the pan off the heat, it will stop cooking. Precision, precision, precision. It also cooks so much faster than other pans.’
