Unpacking a well-packed pan

I had the great good fortune to buy a lovely heavy sauté pan from Harestew, who is very conscientious about packing copper very safely. Take a look at the work of a master.

The box is very sturdy. The pan inside is a large heavy sauté pan with a long handle, so she combined two boxes to create a shell big enough for the pan and its cushioning. The white packing tape helps provide structural support.

I had to put the box on its end on the floor and lift away one of its “halves.” You can see that the packaging was so firmly pressed in that it kept its form even when the exterior shell was pulled away. Note also extra cardboard to reinforce the interior corners. (Those panels were reinforcing all four corners but some pieces pulled away when I lifted up the box.)

I cleared away the top layer of loose packing material and here’s the first peek of the pan handle. The body of the pan is still buried under layers of cushioning.

There at last is the pan, securely wrapped in plastic, with the cavities around it filled with packing materials.

Here’s the pan (with a lid nested inside, securely wrapped in bubble wrap).

At last! The pan!

These gorgeous vintage copper pieces arrived in perfect shape thanks to the care Harestew took in packaging them properly. It’s one of the many things that makes me so confident to buy vintage copper from her — I know she loves these pots and pans just as much as I do.
