Falk USA is running that "once" in a lifetime sale, 35% off select cookware, and it's a big selection.

 

I have no need for any more cookware, much less any more copper cookware.

 

But for anyone who might be interested, it's here - Falk USA.

 

I will say that the couple of sauciers I own literally get used every day, and they're awesome. For anyone gasping at the prices, all I can say is much of the stuff costs less than one decent meal out.

Beautiful stuff.  A "reach for" pan is an investment in pleasure as well as efficiency.   

 

As you say, one pan = a good dinner out.    But one pan also = uncountable numbers of improved meals at home.

I didn't own a saucier.

 

Now I do.

 

I think I'm finished now.

I'm happy these don't work on induction.

Yup. But Demeyere is expensive enough.

I just bought Denmeyere. Haven't used it yet and I've told the spouse he's no allowed to touch it as he has been to known to scorch pots due to inattentiveness.

But but these are DIFFERENT.  They're "bimetal", using the "intercrystallisation" process.  With all those syllables, OF COURSE they're more expensive.

 

(I'm looking forward to seeing how this compares with my All-Clad Copper Core.  Which continues to astonish me in how it's improved my cooking.) (I have a feeling that, when cleaning, I'm going to miss that outer layer of stainless steel.)

I'm with you.   I love the look of copper but haven't the patience to keep it up nor the self-indulgence to let it tarnish.    I've accumulated a bit over time but have gradually given it away to friends who will care for it better than I.   I am completely satisfied with AllClad and am quite willing to give it a buff with BarKeep's Friend from time to time to keep it looking new with little effort.

I'ma let it tarnish out of laziness.  Forget self-indulgence.

This will be an interesting comparison (though I think there is no comparison).  I still use plenty of All-Clad, but it's All-Clad from the days when All-Clad was made in Pennsylvania, and was made really well (and they still hadn't entered the copper world).

 

I'm with you.   I love the look of copper but haven't the patience to keep it up nor the self-indulgence to let it tarnish.    I've accumulated a bit over time but have gradually given it away to friends who will care for it better than I.   I am completely satisfied with AllClad and am quite willing to give it a buff with BarKeep's Friend from time to time to keep it looking new with little effort.

 

I maybe give the copper a cleaning like once every 6 months to a year.  This copper, due to its finish, doesn't shine up as much as that from other manufacturers, and in my opinion doesn't get as tarnished as quickly. I use a product like Brasso or Cameo copper cleaner when I feel industrious.

This saucier is so physically beautiful that I'm sort of reluctant to use it.

Oh, go ahead. Who else will see it? (your cleaning person?)

 

A tip - wash it and dry it when you clean up after dinner. Or breakfast.
