Copper Tri-Ply is a reinvention of the classic copper cookware used for centuries.
In contrast to its predecessors the Tri-Ply incorporates ‘modern’ stainless steel where previously copper pans would have been plated internally either with tin or silver. The Copper Tri-Ply is a three layer bonded construction, consisting of a stainless steel interior, an aluminium core and a copper exterior. These three metals run together throughout the walls and base of the pan providing superior heat distribution for efficient cooking.
The metals are processed using a technique which bonds them together at an atomic level so that they are effectively one sheet of metal, the bond is extremely secure and durable. The pans three layer structure offers discernible benefits to the end user because it brings together and makes the most of the unique virtues of the different materials. Copper and uncoated aluminium are highly efficient heat distribution metals, (only Silver and Gold of the ‘well known’ metals conduct heat more efficiently) but both have drawbacks if they come directly into contact with foodstuffs. Stainless steel is very durable, hygienic and corrosion resistant, but isn’t a very efficient heat conductor. The combining of the three metals into one sheet of material therefore allows us to have the benefits of each metal type, without the drawbacks.
Note: 14cm Milk Pan and 24cm Frying Pan have non-stick coating. 10cm Casserole, 16cm, 18cm & 20cm Saucepans, 24cm Stockpot and 24cm Sauté pans supplied with lids. 18cm & 20cm Saucepans and 24cm Saute pans have helper handles.
A traditional design combined with the contemporary benefits of Tri-ply construction and induction compatibility.
These pans are manufactured following the same principle as the Copper Tri-Ply range, the only real difference being the metal used for the outer layer. Aluminium sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel form three distinct layers to provide a durable, inert cooking surface, a heat retentive core and a resilient, induction compatible exterior.
Impact bonding, the same technique used in the production of our other ranges, fuses these layers together at an atomic level to give the appearance and feel of a single piece of metal. The fundamental difference that sets this range part from what we have done previously is replacing copper with stainless steel as a thermal conductor.
Stainless steel does not perform this job quite as efficiently as copper, however, the use of a ferromagnetic metal as an exterior layer means the pan can be used on an induction hob, a clean and efficient method of cooking which is becoming increasingly popular. An additional benefit of a stainless steel exterior is that it is a non-tarnishing metal making it very easy to maintain the appearance of the pan.
Note: 14cm Milk Pan and 26cm Frying pan can be ordered with or without non-stick coating. 16cm, 18cm & 20cm Saucepans and 24cm Sauté pan supplied with lids. 18cm & 20cm Saucepans and 24cm Sauté pan have helper handles.
These beautiful pans have a hint of the classic about them whilst being ideal for modern families.
The pan bodies are made from a single piece of durable, highly polished, heavy gauge stainless steel. The aluminium and copper base is attached using an impact bonding method which bonds the materials at an atomic level. The combination of stainless steel, aluminium and copper in the base means that the pans have the same virtues as the Tri-Ply pans.
The ability of the aluminium and copper to conduct and disperse heat reduces the risk of hot spots in the base and the stainless steel body is hygienic and resilient. The striking contrast of the stainless steel body, the copper base and the black soft-grip section of the pan handle will make the pans stand out in any kitchen.
These pans offer distinct benefits in terms of being lighter to handle than the Copper Tri-Ply and because stainless steel is a non-reactive metal, they are easier to keep in pristine condition. We have deliberately specified deep bodies to ensure that the pans have family friendly capacities, enabling you to make the most of each ring on your hob! The glass lids also make it easy to keep an eye on your food as it bubbles away on the hob-top.
