Newbie help identifying?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi folks' new here :-)

We were after copper pots and stumbled upon these at a bric and brac shop and loved them instantly. We paid £50 for them.

Does anyone know who these are by? Was this a good deal? Are they safe to cook in?

All they seem to have is made in France.

Thanks for any help!

To me it looks like youve  stumbled upon gold, but thats just my opinion. Been looking around to find a similar deal somewhere, but no luck so far. They are usually great for cooking, but have a tendency to devour time if you like to have them nice, shiny and polished.

They look amazing, but they look like they're tin lined.

You say "tin lined" like it's a bad thing, French Fries. I thought that was a good thing?


I understand tin is a better conductor than stainless steel.


And tin-lined pans can be re-tinned if needed. 


What's the down side?

The downside is that you have to have the pots re-tinned, which will cost you much more than what you paid for the pots.


Don't get me wrong: that's still an incredible purchase. I'm hoping you can find a place where they can re-tin them for you for not too much money.

Thank you for the comments folks:-)

Do you know who made them company wise?

Do these need retining?

I guess the time to retin is when we see copper through the tin?
