"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."
If you are new to tin lined copper pans we recommend that you read all of this page before buying. Every pan is handmade, no two are the same. Today our food grade tin is applied to a cleaned and fluxed coated pan by hand by skilled craftsmen.

Your pan will develop with use and if cared for, will age beautifully and be a friend for life. The hand wiped tin lining in this saucepan is food grade approved pure metal and is the classic method of protecting the copper pan from acidic foods and thus preventing flavour tainting.


This saucepan is PLASTIC, PTFE & PFOA free.

 

It has a durable 99.1% pure black iron pan handle fixed with three sturdy solid copper rivets. The handle is rough polished and delivered with a coating of bees wax.

Twin spouts for left and right handed pouring

 

Perfect for range stoves, electric, gas, ceramic and halogen hobs.

 

If you wish to use copper pans on induction hobs you will need a converter disc.

Do not clean in dish washer.

Copper is a soft material, it will scratch if dragged across a rough or unclean surface. Always wipe with clean cloths or sponges. 


Over heating  to more than 235ºC with melt the tin lining and will distort the pan. Don't drop a hot pan into cold water. 

 

Why are 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. Heat distributes very evenly across the base and sides of pan.

Copper Pans heat up very fast and consequently use much less energy and you do not need to be concerned about the risks from chemical non-stick coatings, as the tin lining has exceptionally good non stick properties and is easy to hand wash.

Not all copper pans are equal. 

Most copper pans sold today are in fact laminates of copper and stainless steel or even copper, aluminium and stainless steel. This does make them cheaper to buy, but does miss the principal advantage of copper. Even a thin layer of stainless steel significantly reduces the superb performance. The tin lining is simply one of the best non-stick surfaces available. In comparison, stainless steel is certainly not renowned for is non-stick qualities.


Cleaning and care. After use, leave your pan to soak in soapy water to loosen any stuck on food.  Use a non-abrasive sponge or cloth and warm, soapy water to clean your pan. Rinse and dry thoroughly.   Do not use an aggressive scourer, or you will rapidly wear through the lining. Never put copper pans in the dishwasher.


Netherton Foundry copper pans are lined with tin. These linings may discolour over time. This isn’t a problem. Your copper pan may need to be re-tinned at some point over its lifetime.  This is only needed if you start to see copper showing through the lining. Over time a greenish patina may develop on a copper surface. This is perfectly fine on your pan if it is not going to touch the food. If you want to remove this, the pan can be polished using a copper cleaner and a soft cloth, then rinsed with water and dried thoroughly. This should keep the copper looking shiny. The handle is made from raw black iron & will need thoroughly drying after use or it will rust. We suggest coating the handle with a thin wipe of olive oil or bees wax to prevent rusting.


Temperature

Do not leave your pan on the hob unattended for too long; if you boil it dry, the lining will melt. The tin lining will melt at 232ºC / 450ºF.

If you place your pan in an oven, it is best not to go above 180ºC / 356ºF.
