Thank you Kaleo,
First, I've read a lot of chowhound posts about copper and always enjoy your insights.
Ironically as soon as I posted about not hearing back, they emailed me back. They confirmed 2.5mm on the saucepan and 3mm on the saute. I ordered so I will confirm upon receipt.
I am looking at getting a few copper pieces from E Dehillerin. However, their copper/tin page indicates thickness of 2-3.5mm. From what I've read, it's all (or mostly all) Mauviel pieces. I'd love to know the actual thickness of each piece, as I'm looking to go 2.5mm or higher. I'm looking at the sauce pan and the saute pan.
I've contacted both E Dehillerin and Mauviel but no response after a week.
Can any of the expert chowhounders help me on what I'd be getting? Any recent orders?
I just received a 1.9 qt Mauviel copper saucepan for xmas. It is my first foray into copper cookware. It looks beautiful, I love the weight, etc. However, on the outside, opposite the side with the handle, there are several spots in the copper. They almost look like burn marks from the manufacturing process.
Before I attempt to clean this, or return it for an exchange, I would love some help from the chowhounders on what these spots may be and my best course of action.
Pic attached. I can add more if needed.
I actually have the liquid BKF. The foods could very well be the reason, as could the water I suppose. If throwing in a little BKF now and then keeps it clean, then so be it. As mentioned, it gets frequent use on my stainless stuff.
Perhaps I will use BKF, then use and wash with clean water, cooking a neutral-ish food (maybe just blanch some veggies) and see if I can narrow it down.
I appreciate the help.
Chili, pork shoulder braise, frying... so there has been a mix. I thought about the water, but thought the (hopefully) clean water from our water jugs would show if that was true. The "stain" still appeared.
I do have BarKeepers friend and should have asked if that was safe for the enamel. Without it, my stainless cookware would never be the same. I will give it a try. Thanks again
Anyone else have this experience?
I purchased this Staub back in February. It hasn't gotten a ton of use (maybe 8-10 times) but the last several times I've used it, after it gets washed in simple dishsoap and water, it dries with most of the bottom (but nowhere else) having a white-ish stain to it. This is my first Staub, I can't assume this is how they are supposed to look, but does anyone have any ideas as to what could cause it?
I thought it may be the water so tonight when I washed it I used water from our water cooler system, the "stain" still showed once it was immediately (as always) towel-dryed and allowed to sit in the open air.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance
