Description: Mauviel 7 quart rondeau pot made of hammered-copper, tin-lined and with brass handles. Wide, shallow design which makes it excellent for browning and searing.

Pros: Beautiful, heat sensitive pot. Nice larger size perfect for soups, braises and stews.

Cons: The price, this pot is really expensive. The tin lining - a tin lined pot needs to be re-tinned after some period of time as the tin wears off, as opposed to stainless steel.

Conclusion: Gorgeous, pricy pot perfect for a variety of tasks in the kitchen. It's a pleasure to cook with copper due to its superior ability to conduct heat. This is a beautiful, timeless piece for the truly interested cook.
