De Buyer Inocuivre Copper Stockpot, 24cm


De Buyer’s inocuivre copper stockpot is a stylish classic that’s been updated with the use of modern materials. This beautiful copper pan is in keeping with traditional designs, however a tin lining has been swapped for stainless steel, meaning its durable and long lasting. Use this stunning French-designed pan to simmer your rich jus and pomodoro sauces.

Stockpots have flat bottoms, straight sides and a wide opening at the top. They are traditionally used to simmer and reduce stocks and broths. This versatile piece of cookware can also be used when making soups, risottos and ragus. 

The inocuivre copper stockpot is made of 90% copper and 10% stainless steel. Copper on the outside provides the pan with excellent control, while the stainless steel inside eliminates the need for re-tinning. 

Traditionally copper pans are lined with tin which wears away over time, so you would need to send your pan away to be 're-tinned'. Instead, De Buyer uses a very thin coating of stainless steel which is durable, will last, and is easy to clean.

Two curved stainless steel handles make the pan comfortable to hold and serve directly from.

This stockpot measures 24cm in diameter.

Why copper?

Not only does copper look beautiful, but it is also fantastic to cook with: 

  • The tremendous heat conduction qualities of copper mean the pan responds almost instantly to changes in temperature. This gives great control.
  • The thick base means there is extremely even heating, with no hot spots. Incredible for making caramel.
  • Similarly, when it gets hot, it will stay hot! 

Please note, this saucepan is not suitable for use on induction hobs. Instead choose the Prima Matera induction-friendly range.

Notes on Copper Cookware

Copper is a very soft metal, so it scratches easily. The bases of all pans & bowls may already have slight scratches from the final polishing process. To minimise new scratches, try not to drag the bowl across surfaces (e.g. from one part of your work surface to another). To avoid warping, do not plunge a cold bowl into very hot water or vice versa. Copper will develop a patina over time. To restore its warm glow, use a copper polishing paste from time to time. Hand wash with warm, soapy water, and use white vinegar to remove traces of oxidation and fats on the inside of the bowl.
