Mauviel, a French family business established in 1830 and located in the Normandy town of Villedieu-les-Poeles, is the foremost manufacturer of professional copper cookware in the world today. Highly regarded in the professional world, with over 170 years of experience, Mauviel offers several different lines of copper cookware to professional chefs and home cooks that appreciate the benefits of their high quality products. Professional cooks can attest that copper cookware is an essential part of every cookware collection as it is 2X more conductive than aluminum and 10X more conductive than stainless steel. This advantage makes copper the very best material for cooking, as it is unsurpassed in its ability to heat up evenly and rapidly and to cool down quickly, allowing for maximum control and great cooking results. CUPRETAM pour la table has a 1.2 to 2mm thickness of copper exterior and is lined with a tin wash interior that, in the opinion of professional chefs creates the ultimate cooking surface. It has straight sides and bronze handles with copper rivets and has a polished or hammered outside finish, not only to enhance their inherent beauty but also to facilitate cleaning. A timeless product, CUPRETAM pour la table embodies the traditional process and professionalism known only to Mauviel.
