More than simply beautiful, this copper conical vessel functions as an efficient steamer for potatoes (or other vegetables) as well as a striking serving piece. The design is ingenious: water boils quickly in the narrow rounded base; the domed lid collects condensation, then redirects it down the sloping pan sides so food never gets soggy.
- Made in France of thick 1.5mm-gauge copper that conducts heat exceptionally well.
- Nonreactive tin interior is easy to clean.
- Perforated insert plate keeps food above boiling water, in the steam.
- Copper lid with bronze knob.
- Riveted bronze handles.
- Dimensions & More Info
- 8" diam., 9" high.
- 3/4-qt. cap.
- 3 lb. with lid.
- Made from 1.5mm-gauge copper.
- Made in France.
- Use & Care
- Ideal for gas and electric cooktops.
- Oven safe to 450°F.
- To protect the tin lining from damage, do not heat the pot empty or at temperatures above 450°F.
- Use wood, plastic or heat-resistant nylon tools to avoid scratching the tin lining.
- Allow pot to cool before washing.
- Hand-wash; dry immediately with a soft cloth.
- Avoid using steel wool, steel scouring pads or harsh detergents.
- Copper will develop a rich patina over time. This will not affect the pan's cooking performance. To keep the exterior looking new, use a copper polish or a combination of lemon and salt.
- The tin lining protects foods from reacting with copper but will become discolored over time. This is normal. Depending on the frequency of use and types of food cooked, the tin lining may eventually have to be replaced. To prolong the lining's usefulness, avoid cooking acidic ingredients in your tin-lined cookware.

- More about Mauviel
In 1830, Ernest Mauviel established his namesake cookware company in Villedieu-les-Poêles in Normandy. The village had a long history of outstanding metalwork; the locals were considered experts in the craft. Today, much of the manufacturing is still done by hand using traditional processes passed down through generations of copper makers. True to France’s rich culinary history, Mauviel 1830 is a favorite in professional kitchens, where copper’s quick, even heat conductivity is essential for making delicate sauces and other French classics. Mauviel now also offers stainless-steel collections crafted with the same attention to detail as its traditional copper cookware.

Mauviel Copper Cleaner
Rated 5 out of 5 by LONETREERUNNER from Perfect potato cooker! Amazing product. One that challenges my way of thinking on cooking potatoes,boiling only. I made mashed potatoes from steamed potatoes and they were incredibly better than boiled. I had epiphany, maybe the French were on to something with their potato cooker. I purchased it and have loved it ever since. The potato steamer is 3 to 4 times faster to heat up than my multi pot. Temperature setting #7 vs High on Electric stove.(less than 10 mins) Then lowed to #3. It is super lightweight and the fraction of the size of my multi pot. Superior steam circulation versus a multi pot steam basket. Around the food instead of around the basket pushing the lid up and escaping. It makes cooking potatoes fast ,easy and a whole lot more enjoyable.Date published: 2018-05-09Rated 5 out of 5 by Apicius1310 from Super Cool Overtime I put this on the stove to use friends are amazed. I love itDate published: 2017-06-26Rated 5 out of 5 by Boro748 from One of my favorites This is one of my favorite and most used pieces of cookware. I use it to perfectly steam various vegetables including asparagus spears, broccoli and fingerling potatoes. It heats evenly, is easy to use, steams quickly and the clean-up is a cinch. I love it so much I have two. I use both for fingerling potatoes when I'm entertaining a larger group for Raclette dinners. Guests always comment when they see these on my cooktop. They are beautiful. If you own any copper cookware, do yourself the favor of purchasing Mauviel's copper cleaner for quick and easy polishing.Date published: 2016-08-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Flyinggal from LOVE IT!!! I was not sure if I would regret buying this item for two reasons: price and upkeep. I can tell you that I am not a professional chef. I do cook more than most. I have never had any copper pieces until recently and I love them!! This item not only cleans up with ease, but it really does the job!! I could not believe how nice it is to have a piece of cookware that exceed my expectations of what it can do. Follow the directions on cleaning...its not rocket science. I have used this for veggies other than potatoes. All the veggies turned out great! This steamer will actually make you look forward to cooking....ok maybe it will make you think about cooking even if you don't actually end up doing it! Enjoy!Date published: 2012-09-03
