Copper pan

Copper pan

Tin coated copper pan; often used for making jam. Copper pans were in common usage in Russia and became popular under the Second Empire in France when Russia was the height of fashion. The famous French chef; Carême; who also worked for Czar Alexander I, also used copper pans, which first appeared in the 14th century.

The term stewpan originally referred to a copper pan, but the name has been generally expanded to pans made from stainless steel or aluminum. The diameter of a stewpan can vary between 10 cm and 20 cm.

A stewpan can be used to make béchamel and other sauces, chicken broths or stocks, or on a different note, to cook food bain-marie, for instance.
