Great Pot - But the Handles?
April 7, 2013
I purchased a few pieces of the professional (2 mm) copper Mauviel pots and pans. I LOVE them all - nothing compares to the way copper performs. The only thing that has me scratching my head is Mauviel's choice of cast iron handles. They heat up very quickly, and once my husband, using a high flame, got the handles so hot that the pot holders fused to the laquered surface of the handles and even the lid. I thought at first that he just had the flame too high, but I did the same thing once on the lid with a normal/low flame. My pot holder stuck, it was so hot. It wasn't some low end pot holder either. It was thick cotton one I got from WS. Mauviel only offered the stainless steel handled pots and pans on their lower copper content pots. The stainless would of course keep cooler than the cast iron. Also, I wonder if it was the laquer more so than the pot holders.
Pros: performance
Cons: cast iron handles

Do NOT Do That!
This is a late comment, but for anyone new reading this horrible advice to put your expensive copper pot in the dishwasher and then scrub the handle, please do NOT do that! It will ruin your pot. Copper should never go in a dishwasher, and I cannot imagine wanting to remove the factory coating on the cast iron handle.
Mauviel (rightfully so) will most likely not honor their lifetime warranty with this type of abuse.Mauviel gives explicit instructions on how to care for this beautiful cookware.
I personally have not had any problem with the Mauviel handles, and I cook on a BlueStar gas range. I keep the flame on low.
If you have followed Mauviel's instructions on how to cook with their cookware, and the handle is problematic, you need to speak with them directly.

Dishwasher, Just sayin'
This may sound heretical, but I have done it and it works. Scrub the handles with steel wool and run the pot through the dishwasher to remove everything on the handles. You may need two washings. The handles will immediately begin to rust. Wipe the rust off with a damp towel, dry the iron and apply a coat of Johnson's Paste Wax to the handles. If you use the dishwasher again you will need to re-wax the handles, but if you hand wash the wax will endure for a long time. No more hot sticky goo, and the wax prevents rust very effectively.
And I completely agree with you about the idea of stainless steel handles. I wish Mauviel and Bourgeat would get their eye on the ball about this.
