Falk Copper Cookware

Recommended Posts

I hate to say it, but I see what joe sees in this stuff.

 

I'm certainly not about to replace the other copper cookware I'm fortunate enough to have accumulated over the years. But, if I had the opportunity to do it over again, most of that stuff would be Falk.

 

In the I'm an idiot category, when I got my first Mauviel copper saucepan a long time ago, it was (as copper was) tin-lined, and I decided to make popcorn in it, because I was excited and I just wanted to use it.  Do you know what temperature tin melts at?  Do you know it's not a great idea to preheat a tin-lined copper pan, over high-ish heat, in order to pop popcorn?

can't find/remember the thread in which all the all-clad conversation happened but i just want to say that today i scored an old-school 8 qt stockpot bought many years ago directly from the factory "seconds" sale. haven't picked it up yet from the colleague who is selling hers (it was purchased by her parents) but it looks to be in mint condition. $50. particularly sweet as i've been on a slow-motion campaign for a while now to convince myself to spend close to $300 for a new one.
