After more than 45 years of producing extraordinary pans from copper, the Ruffoni family began channeling its artistry into clad stainless-steel cookware of the same exceptional quality. Ideal for both browning and slow-simmering, 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. Made in Italy.
