I strive to be objective, but sometimes I Have Thoughts.
My goal is to empower you with information to make your own informed choices about buying vintage and antique copper cookware, but I have come to believe that unfortunately not all copper brands are created equal and not all online sellers are honest. I offer these opinion posts (and label them clearly as such) in the hope that you will evaluate my experience against all the other information available to you.
Don’t let copper stamps distract you from finding the best deals out there.
Ernest Mauviel must be rolling over in his grave.

Why did Mauviel stop using cast iron?
In 2015, Mauviel dropped a rivet from its handles, and as a collector, I think this is a problem for the brand.
