Our rounded copper casserole is available in 5 different sizes and comes complete with a lid. All of our copper casseroles / braisers are made using one single sheet of 3mm thick pure copper providing a very fast and even heat distribution throughout the entire body of the cookware. The rounded transition from the sides of the pot to the base makes working with utensils inside the pot conveniently easy. Casseroles or braisers are usually more shallow compared to stew/stock pots with the same width. Using this type of pot for braising meat means that a wider base allows to nicely brown your meat before it simmers. The low sides are also beneficial for dishes that fill out the pot such as casseroles since the heat distribution on the side is more effective compared to pots with taller sides. Our rounded copper casserole features 2 pure brass handles secured with pure copper rivets. The tinning is done utilizing the traditional fire-tinning method using only 100% pure tin. Available sizes & capacities: 1.5qt. (1.4ltr.) - (W) 5.5” x (H) 3.5” (14cm x 9cm) 2.1qt. (2.0ltr.) - (W) 6.3” x (H) 3.9” (16cm x 10cm) 2.7qt. (2.5ltr.) - (W) 7.1” x (H) 3.9” (18cm x 10cm) 4.4qt. (4.2ltr.) - (W) 8.7” x (H) 4.3” (22cm x 22cm) 6.7qt. (6.4ltr.) - (W) 10.2” x (H) 4.7” (26cm x 22cm) Our rounded copper casserole with lid is handcrafted in the Navarini workshop in northern Italy. The body and the lid of our copper casserole is constructed from one single sheet of copper ensuring absolute even heat distribution from the base to the sides of the pot. The two handles are made of high quality brass and secured by pure copper rivets. Rather then having straight sides, this particular casserole is crafted with a smooth and rounded transition from the base to the sides of the cookware. This rounded transition allows working the food with utensils easier and more efficient. The copper used for our casserole is pure copper with a thickness of 3mm making this copper casserole equally suitable on gas as well as electric, glass or ceramic stoves. Copper conducts heat twice as fast as aluminum cookware, 5 times faster compared to cast iron and over 25 times faster than stainless steel cookware. This time difference becomes obvious when it comes to heating up or changing the temperature during the cooking process. Changing the temperature on your stove translates into immediate change in temperature in your copper cookware allowing cooking, brown or braising to perfection. Our rounded copper casserole features 2 handles. We only use high quality brass handles on any of our copper products as well as only secure them with pure copper rivets. The lid handle is also secured with copper rivets. The casserole, including the lid, is entirely hand-hammered. Hand-hammered copper cookware adds strength and enhances the structure & durability of the material. In addition, hand-hammered characterizes true artisanship. We only use high quality, 100% pure and non-reactive tin-lining for our copper products as well as applying the lining utilizing the traditional method of fire-tinning. The advantage is that the heat conductivity of the tin-lining corresponds perfectly with the copper. Hence, translates desired changes of cooking temperature immediately to the food allowing much more cooking control and better results. Compared to other coating materials, our tin-lining can easily be renewed as often as desired and your cookware can be handed onto the next generation. Our copper cookware, including the non-reactive and renewable tin-lining, has a high heat tolerance of up to 450° Fahrenheit (230° Celsius). One of the reasons why our copper cookware is preferred by professional chefs around the world. Our casserole will arrive packed in a beautiful blue “Bottega Navarini” cloth bag. Not only a fitting bag for our beautiful copper products but already treasured by our customers as a sign of an original Navarini. Crafted by hand in the Navarini family workshop of Ravina, Italy.
Please note: Minor cosmetic imperfections may occur. Small imperfections are a natural part of the handmade process and lend charm, depth, and individuality to each piece. We only use 100% pure materials such as copper, brass and tin for our products. The entire process is made by hand and we utilize the traditional method of fire-tinning.
