Ruffoni Opus Prima Hammered Stainless-Steel Braiser

After more than 45 years of producing extraordinary pots and pans from copper, the Ruffoni family began channeling its traditional Italian artistry and craftsmanship into clad stainless-steel cookware of the same exceptional quality. Developed for Williams-Sonoma, this braising pan conducts heat evenly and efficiently. Alternating layers of stainless steel and aluminum transfer heat efficiently, eliminating hot spots. Hand-hammered exterior with a unique serial number inscribed on the bottom. Solid stainless-steel handle and lid. Knob is hand cast in brass and plated in silver by a Milanese silversmith. Ideal for use on any type of cooktop, including induction. Handsome enough for oven-to-table presentation. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

very elegant
August 29, 2013
I had been looking for a piece that was attractive and held large amounts, but it seemed like the ones I found in the right size were enameled cast iron. They were almost too heavy for me, even without food in them. The Ruffoni braiser is much easier for me to hoist around, yet the thick bottom of the pan cooks wonderfully. It's just exactly what I wanted, although I hadn't even considered Ruffoni. I just happened across it in our local WS Store and realized it fit the bill perfectly! I keep it out on the range because I adore the hammered finish and the incredibly beautiful vegetable knob. It gets lots of compliments!
Pros: Quality, Size, Versatile, Shape, Design, Weight
Cons: knob requires special care

Beauty and functionality
November 20, 2012
Cooking with these vessels is truly wonderful. Even distribution of heat for every type of cooking technique for perfectly preparing foods.
And, clean-up is almost a pleasure because the pots are so lovely and relatively easy to keep (I truly love cooking but am not thrilled with the clean-up jobs.
The handles are not a problem at all if you take care in treating these items with the respect deserved. Anyone that enjoys the art of preparing good food at any level cannot go wrong with investing in this line of pans.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Versatile, Design, Weight

Fabulous Cookware
February 16, 2012
I am utterly delighted with my Ruffoni cookware. I have now accumulated the entire set and use it constantly. Beautiful heat distribution, and incredibly easy clean up. I like it even better than my All-Clad copper core, which is arguably top-notch. Yes, the lids are bit tricky, but are gorgeous and worth the extra effort. Silicone oven mitts are definitely the way to go - they're flexible enough to get a good grip.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Design
