- 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Myrtie from handle problem I purchased this for my granddaughter not knowing the handle got terrifically hot!!!!!! Let’s just say the family was not happy with Ruffoni.Date published: 2019-04-06Rated 1 out of 5 by ribeye from Bad plating The tin plating flakes off. I don't know if it's coming off when the pot is washed or during cooking. Since I'm not interested in risking having flakes of metal in my food this pot will become a worthless decoration.Date published: 2019-02-17Rated 1 out of 5 by Lee7 from Not worth the price I got this pot few months ago and really have to admit that I avoid using it because don't want to over use it and I'm really careful when using it - But the first time I used it , got stains inside of the tin linning -don't really know if it affects the cooking capabilities of the pot or the flavour of food - it says in the use & care section that it is ok, but after the first use? really? Plus it takes a lot of time cleaning it to maintain its copper looking clear and shiny.Date published: 2014-04-02Rated 5 out of 5 by loverofwildflowers from Ruffoni is wonderful I am not truly a skilled gourmet cook, but have several of the Ruffoni pots now. They are even more beautiful than pictured, and so far they are wonderful to use. I would highly recommend.Date published: 2013-03-19Rated 5 out of 5 by ChristineW from Gorgeous Work of Art In keeping with all of the best things made in Italy. This pot is functional and gorgeous. At first I thought to only have it for display it's so beautiful. But, I decided to utilize these fabulous pots and pans. I couldn't be more pleased with these products. They heat very quickly, evenly and cool down quickly as well. I gave all of my All Clad away. Cleaning is very easy using weiman's copper cleaner. Just wipe and rinse it's that easy. If your interested in the highest quality pots and pans no other brand compares.Date published: 2013-01-07
