Ruffoni | 7.5 QT Covered Stockpot | Historia Collection
The stockpot is a kitchen essential, a shape that is often synonymous with "cookware" itself: perfect for boiling and simmering meat, vegetables and grains into delicious minestrone, soups and stocks.
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 handles are cast of solid bronze, and the lid is crowned by Ruffoni's signature acorns with their leaves. A timeless piece that will transition seamlessly from stovetop to tabletop, and can be proudly displayed to adorn any kitchen when not in use.

USE AND CARE FOR THE HISTORIA COLLECTION
COOKING Recommended for use on gas stovetops, open flames (wood, charcoal, barbecue) and in the oven - electric cooktops also possible. Never heat the pot empty and do not exceed 220 C (430 F). Bronze handles will get hot: always use pot holders while cooking. Use wood or plastic tools to avoid scratching the tin lining.
WASHING & 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.
TIN CARE Tin will naturally discolor over time, but remain equally effective. Depending on use, the tin lining may eventually wear off and require retinning. Prolong the tin lining's life by not scratching it with metal tools, never overheating the cookware, and limiting the use of acidic ingredients.
