Here are a few tips to remember when it comes to cleaning and caring for your handmade Copper Pots:

  • Always hand wash your Copper Pot or Copper Pans after cooking. Use a soft sponge, warm water and soap to clean the tin lined interior. 
  • If you have some food residue on the tin lined surface of your Copper Pot, fill it up with some soapy warm water. Due to tin's natural non-stick surface, any remaining food will likely get rinsed off easily. 
  • Avoid scouring your Copper Pots with steel wool or scouring pads.
  • Use wooden or silicon utensilswhen cooking in your hammered Copper Pot.
  • After cleaning, pat dry your hammered Copper Pot with a clean cloth. Leaving water on copper will lead to water spots forming on your Copper Pots, which will largely reduce the original beautiful shine on your copper cookware
  • Store your Copper Pots in a dry and cool place. Oxidation occurs when copper is placed in a humid environment, so it's essential that you store your copper pots correctly. Hanging them dry is another great option if you like how copper adds character to your kitchen.
