Made in France by Mauviel 1830
Although copper is often used in subtle combinations of materials for cooking, it particularly falls under the emblematic expertise of Mauviel, a specialized French company that produces exceptional high-quality kitchen products. This Manufacture designs thousands of high-end items for professionals and individuals. The quality of its products has beat out those from many other countries. Even with its success, Mauviel has remained a family business and is still based in Normandy. Created in 1830 by Ernest Mauviel in Villedieu les Poêles in the Bay of Mont Saint Michel, this company continues to employ the copper city’s 800-year-old knowledge and traditions.
A bit of history…
Ancestors of the spoon, the oldest ladles were made of wood. They are often associated with the idea of feasting, food in abundance and sharing, which makes them a social tool.
Copper ladles were made to be used for sweets, jams and chocolate! They develop a patina over time, which makes them all the more charming.
We’ve all seen our grandmothers make jam in copper pots. Copper is an excellent conductor of heat and allows for consistent cooking. It has been adapted to our modern lifestyle and was chosen here as a nod to the French culinary tradition.
- For jams, copper remains the standard.
- Lifetime warranty
- Regular maintenance with a food-safe product is required to maintain its shine.
