Mauviel cookware is made in France of copper, a material prized for its ability to transfer heat quickly, distribute it evenly and cool rapidly. Polished to a gleaming finish, this pot measures as high as it does wide to increase the absorption of flavors into the liquid when making stocks and soups. Heavy-gauge 2mm copper for superior heat conductivity and temperature control. Tin-lined interior is nonreactive and easy to clean. The tall shape of this pot helps reduce evaporation and seals in the flavor of stocks, soups and sauces during cooking. Riveted bronze handles.
