Description: 2 1/2 quart sauce pot with brass handle, made with copper, lined with tin. Comes with a tight-fitting lid topped with a brass acorn knob.

Pros: Beautiful, heat sensitive pot. Nice smaller size.

Cons: 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: Beautiful, timeless piece for the truly interested cook. The smaller size of this pot makes it perfect for sauces and soups. It's a pleasure to cook with copper due to its superior ability to conduct heat and this pot is of a very handy size and shape.
