The Beauty of Copper Cookware
Did you know that copper was the first metal to be worked with by human hands? It goes a long way back. If you want to invest in some good cookware, but don't know where to start, I suggest purchasing copper pots and pans. It is definitely an investment, so brace yourself. If you are serious about cooking, then copper needs to be in your arsenal. The heat conduction of copper is unparalleled. Julia Child famously cooked with copper, she preferred Mauviel and in her autobiography, My Life in France, she wrote, "It did my heart good to see rows of gleaming knives and copper pots at the ready."
Copper is beautiful to display and amazing to cook with as well. It is one of the best conductors of heat, warms quickly and stays warm as well. Copper provides uniform cooking for your food, so you will not have any burnt spots or scalding.
Cleaning Your Copper
Make a mixture of equal parts baking soda and lemon juice, and rub away the tarnished spots with a soft cloth.
