The following are the most features of Matfer 915901 8 Piece Bourgeat Copper Cookware Set.
Copper sandwiched between highly polished stainless steel
The beautifully presented thick red copper, is an impressive 2.5mm thick. This is a lot more substantial then other copper cookware sets that are on the market, and this is reflected in the price. It allows for professional grade cooking that gives you even distribution of heat while cooking with no burning or hidden hotspots of food. The copper exterior will not easily warp or damage over time and is very easy to clean and to keep sparkling new.
Stainless steel Interior
Stainless steel is a smooth and safe surface for cooking, as it will not tarnish food nor interfere with its taste. There is no need to re tin the lining of the pot years down the line, as you often have to do with other copper sets, as stainless steel is incredibly hard wearing. The stainless steel which is an 18/10 construction, will wear well, is easy to clean and is very safe to use. The inside of each pot and pan is also guaranteed to have its own highly polished look maintained just as the outside of the pot.
Cast iron handles
The cast iron handles have heavy duty rivets making the cookware feel extremely sturdy and safe to manoeuvre around the kitchen. As they are incredibly sturdy, they help to counterbalance the weight of the pan helping to avoid tipping them over while in the process of cooking on the stove. The handles are also smooth and firm to the touch and are very easy to grip without placing any extra pressure on the arm. They also remain cool to the touch when used on the hob.
8 piece set
This set includes 8 pieces of cookware. They include a 9.5 inch casserole pot with lid; a sauce pan with matching lid; a saute pan with lid and an 11 inch brazier pot with matching lid. Therefore there is every size of pot you will ever need to cook in, plus an accompanying tight fitting lid. You can therefore cook a family meal including meat, vegetables and accompanying sauce. All cookware is suitable for oven use, and is safe to use under a broiler.
The set comes with 4 copper lids that accompany the matching size pot. Each lid is made of thick copper and has a firmly attached handle that makes lifting the lids on and off the pot incredibly easy. The lids fit securely with no gaps once seated. The securely fitting lids seal in moisture while cooking and help to speed up the cooking process. The lids although sturdy are not too heavy and easily manipulated. Their smooth surface is also really easy to clean.
