Netherton Foundry Copper Chef's Prospector Pan, 11"


Netherton Foundry’s copper chef’s prospector pan can be used on the hob and for baking in the oven. Not only does it look beautiful, it also offers exceptional temperature control and even heat distribution. The tin lining is non-stick and protects the pan from corrosion and acidic foods.

Tin lined copper pans have been used in restaurant kitchens since the 17th century and remain a popular choice for professional chefs and keen home cooks. With proper care, they will last for years and become a firm favourite in your kitchen.

This copper frying pan measures 11" in diameter. It can be used on range stoves and gas and electric hobs. If you wish to use the pan on an induction hob, you will need a converter disc.

Why choose a copper pan?

  • Copper is very heat responsive and will heat up and cool down quickly when you adjust the power on your hob for precision cooking.
  • Another benefit of the heat responsiveness is that since the pan heats up quickly, you will also use less energy.
  • Since copper is a very good conductor of heat, you will get very even heat distribution through the entire pan.
  • Tin is naturally a very non-stick material, and is easy to clean

Caring for copper pans:

  • Copper is not dishwasher safe, so should be washed in warm soapy water with a non-abrasive sponge or cloth. Rinse and dry thoroughly before storing.
  • Avoid scouring pads and metal utensils which will scratch the lining. Wood or silicone utensils are the best option.
  • Tin has a melting point of 232ºC / 450ºF, which means it’s important not to leave the pans on the hob with nothing in them. If you ensure there’s always something in the pan, it shouldn’t cause an issue in your day to day cooking. Searing steaks on a high temperature is not recommended however. Cast Iron or Stainless Steel pans would be better options for high temperature cooking instead. 
  • If using in the oven, it is best not to go above 180ºC / 356ºF.
