French Copper Studio created the Tri-Ply cookware collection as a lighter, more liberally priced version of their original copper cookware from France. The walls of each piece in the Tri-Ply collection are built from 1 mm of finest quality copper on the outside (most competitor brands rarely use more than 0.5 mm), reinforced with an aluminum core, with 18/10 polished stainless steel on the inside, for a total thickness of 2.5 mm. This combination of materials provides superior durability and even heat distribution, making this cookware set a useful and affordable purchase.
To protect the outer copper layer from developing patina prematurely, the manufacturer coats it with protective lacquer. The lacquer layer needs to be removed before the first use of your cookware. If you prefer the lacquer to be removed by us, please select the 'non-lacquered' option at checkout.
The stainless steel inner layer does not need to be replaced after years of use like tin layer commonly used in copper cookware. All of the lids in this set are made from solid stainless steel.
The outer copper layer will develop a darker patina over time. The patina will not affect the functionality of your copper cookware; however, if you choose to remove it, we recommend using Barkeeper's Friend copper cleaning liquid, or a combination of one part lemon juice with three parts kosher salt to apply to the outer surface with a soft cloth, then rinse and dry immediately.
*Please note: our handcrafted copper cookware is not dishwasher safe.
