Learn more about this Ruffoni

The Bain-Marie, also known as double boiler, is an essential tool for delicate preparations that require gentle, even heat: melted chocolate, cheese fondue, hollandaise sauce, custard and creme anglaise... Fill the copper saucepan with hot water, then watch your ingredients cook gently in the porcelain insert to perfect velvety consistency.

When a double boiler is not needed, simply remove the porcelain insert to turn your Bain-Marie into a solid copper saucepan you’ll use on a daily basis!

Crafted in solid copper for superior heat conductivity, hammered for increased strength and lasting beauty and tin-lined by hand over fire — so naturally low-stick. The riveted stick handles are cast in solid bronze, and the lid is crowned by Ruffoni's signature acorns and leaves.

Made in Italy.

A timeless classic

The Historia collection

Historia, meaning 'history' in Latin, is perhaps Ruffoni's most iconic collection. Each shape has been created by our master coppersmiths in the same way as cooking vessels were manufactured in royal castles and palaces upon the request of court cooks. Truly a celebration of our shared culinary history, with this collection we relive centuries of tradition and honor exquisite craftmanship:

- Each item is skillfully crafted from a single sheet of copper for maximum heat conductivity and superior temperature control

- Hammered by our master coppersmiths to ensure increased stregth and lasting beauty

- Internally lined by hand over fire with the purest, durable nonreactive tin so naturally low-stick

- Bronze handles are individually cast and attached with durable stainless steel rivets

- Handles and lids are enriched with finials in exquisite shapes such as acorns, artichokes, vegetables and animals to bring warmth and elegance to any table

- Heirloom quality items, worthy of being handed down through generations

- Lifetime Warranty

- Made in Italy

USE AND CARE FOR THE OPUS CUPRA COLLECTION

Taking care of your Ruffoni the right way

Cooking

Recommended for use on gas stovetops, open flames (wood, charcoal, barbecue) and in the oven - electric cooktops also possible. Use a burner that is similar in diameter to the cookware, never heat the pot empty and do not exceed 230 C (450 F). To avoid scratching or dulling the polished surface, do not use knives, sharp kitchen tools, corrosive detergents and metal scouring pads.

Washing and Polishing

Hand-wash with a soft sponge and mild detergent, and dry immediately with a soft cloth.With use, copper develops a rich patina over time that many love and cherish. To restore a polished shine, use a good copper polish (like Ruffoni Cleaner) or salt with lemon juice/vinegar.

Silver care

The silver-plated finial will naturally tarnish over time: use a silver-polishing cloth to restore its shine, or to polish more thoroughly remove from the lid by twisting the special screw - rotate the screw, not the finial, to prevent damage to the lid. Always hand-wash as dishwasher use would accelerate the silver tarnishing.
