Gorgeous Copper Cookware Sets
Do you want a copper cookware set because you like the look that copper gives you, or do you want one because you know how nice it is to cook with?
Think about that question hard because there is a big difference between the two. If you just want your pans to have that distinctive pink/orange color then you can buy pots and pans which only have a very thin exterior coating of copper and you won’t have to pay too much. If you want real copper cookware however, then you are going to have to be prepared to pay for it.
Below we have chosen two different sets you might be interested in, first we will look at a set from Calphalon which has only a thin copper coating, then we move onto the stunning Matfer Bourgeat set which you’ll see is made mostly of copper.
Here are the details for each:
Best Copper Cookware Set For Price
Calphalon Tri-Ply Copper 10-Piece Cookware Set
This set from the well respected Calphalon company gives you that gorgeous copper look, without the huge price tag. They have a thin layer of copper around the exterior of each pan, then in the base you’ll find an aluminium core to help heat conduction, and finally the rest of the pan is 18/10 stainless steel.
The one disappointing thing about this set is that the lids don’t have a copper exterior as well. I know the interior is stainless steel anyway, but it would nice to have the lids to match the lovely copper color of the pans below.
That said though this is an excellent value set. You can grab this 10 piece set which gives you two frying pans, one saute pan and three good sized saucepans, for just under $400 at the time of writing.
The reviews for it on Amazon.com are excellent, although some people complain that under heat the copper starts to discolor, but that is just what happens with copper so you need to be ready for that, and it buffs right out with a good rub so you can get them back to their pristine, shiny look.
All in all this is a good value set of copper pots and pans, don’t expect them to act like pans with a thick copper exterior, but they are a fantastic alternative at less than a third of the price.

Best Copper Cookware Set For Quality
Matfer 915901 8 Piece Bourgeat Copper Cookware Set
This copper cookware set is from Matfer Bourgeat and you can see just by looking at the picture to the right that it just screams high quality. They use a 2.5mm thick exterior of copper in this set so you get all the advantages of the fantastic heat conduction copper gives you, without having to have a separate core like with the ones above.
They have a thin stainless steel layer inside, just 1/10th of a mm thick, which is to stop the copper tainting the food in any way, and it also provides a more rugged interior as copper is a soft metal and can be damaged easily.
You only get 8 pieces with this though, a casserole pot, sauce pan, saute pan and brazier, but each piece if made to the highest standards and will last you for a lifetime. Just make sure you use less heat than normal as copper conducts heat faster than the metals used in cheaper sets!
There aren’t that many reviews because this is an expensive set, but the ones they do have are excellent. Bear in mind you are paying for the quality in this set though and at the time of writing they are just under $1,450.
