Copper homeware has become massively popular over the past couple of years – not just because it looks great but because of its properties. It’s especially useful in kitchenware (especially pans) because of its incredible conductivity – it warms up and retains heat so much better than other metals. With that in mind, we present our current favourite bargain copper kitchenware – all of it currently reduced in the sales.
From a company well known for producing extremely reliable (and rather expensive!) mixers, this KitchenAid three-ply copper stockpot has a roomy 7.5L capacity and is designed for years of use. Its unique three-layer construction employs an aluminium central layer, an 18/0 stainless steel interior and a pure polished copper exterior. With etched measurements marked on its inside, stainless steel handles and a glass lid, it’s every bit as practical as it is stunning. Catch it now and get £25 off your purchase.
Copper Milk Pan – £30 (was £60), John Lewis
John Lewis’s copper milk pan also offers the three-ply construction, so can promise even heat distribution throughout the pan and your ingredients. This is of course an important factor when you’re making custard or warming up milk! It has a stainless steel handle attached with strong rivets, as well as internal measurement markings, and is currently on sale for half its original price – so now’s the perfect time to get your hands on some real quality cookware.
Pasta Maker – £50.61 (was £60.99), Villa d’Este Home
We’ve seen a lot of copper kitchenware on our travels, but this one was probably the most unexpected – the body of Villa d’Este’s pasta maker is made from nickel-plated steel, but the sides are coated in a copper finish and the result is rather striking! It scores on practicality too, having a table clamp, a removable steel handle with a plastic grip and two pasta cutters. It can produce pasta in nine thickness levels – and is a great buy with over a tenner off!
Cucina Copper Roaster – £55 (was £110), Linea
There comes a time when the battered old tin occupying your oven isn’t fit to house another roast…and it’s a relief to replace it with something new like the exquisitely shiny Cucina copper roaster by Linea. This non-stick roaster uses tri-ply technology which ensures perfect conductivity with none of the hotspots that can ruin your culinary creations. With a 25-year guarantee and at half its original price, this quality piece of kitchenware is a real steal!
Swan have really excelled themselves with their ranges of matching kitchen items over the past few years, and their Townhouse Five-piece Knife Block Set in Copper is another great addition to their repertoire. It includes chef, bread, slicer, utility and paring knives, each of which is made from high-grade 18/10 satin polished stainless steel. They all sit in a handsome copper-finished stainless steel block…and can be yours for a penny under thirty quid!
