Why should I use copper pans?
More & more people are turning back to tin lined copper cookware. The original & enduring Non-Stick, 100% Food Safe, cookware surface!!!
“Copper pots are the most satisfactory of all to cook in, as they hold and spread the heat well,” Julia Child advised in Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
Since well before the Bronze Age, the Copper Age!, tin lined copper cookware has been employed in kitchens the world over for it’s super responsive temperature control, even heat distribution & non-stick properties. This is why many chef’s & cooks always choose tin lined copper, not to mention it looks great & each freshly laid lining can out last up to five Teflon©, PTFE lined pans within the professional environment. That’s five pans rendered useless & off to the tip for each time a copper pan is relined! Thats not to mention the health science surrounding PTFE.
Is Tin good for you?
Tin, as with aluminium, Stainless steel, iron, or the dreaded PTFE, all will impart traces into the food when cooking. This is a simple fact & the very reason copper pans are tinned with a safe metal element that imparts no flavour, nor harmful byproducts.
When using a tin lined copper pan micro trace elements of tin will be absorbed & this is thought to be of great health benefit.
One study included improvements with fatigue, some forms of depression, and a general increase in energy, well-being, and mood. There were also benefits with certain types of headaches, insomnia, asthma, or improvements with digestion, skin, or various aches and pains.
Not long ago, it wasn’t known for sure whether tin (Sn) is a nutrient essential to our health, or not. Nowadays, this micro-mineral is classified as essential, not only because our body has cell receptors for it, and contains minute but always present amounts, but also because it has been linked to some important body functions.
From the world’s top chefs to the humblest cooks, your cookware will undergo a transformation resulting in beautiful pots & pans ready for many years of unparalleled use.

What is the history of Newlyn copper?
Newlyn Tinning is helping to sustain Newlyn’s famed Copper Working heritage through the 21st Century!!! You, the customer, is the main factor in this since 1890!
Late in the 19th century the fishing industry in Cornwall was becoming unreliable as a source of income. Bad weather and seasonal fluctuations brought enforced periods of inactivity. It was decided that an alternative means of employment could be gained by training the fishermen to produce items in copper.
Much of the influence for this came from the Arts and Crafts Movement which was concerned with the notion of ‘the dignity of manual work’ and the promotion and preservation of craftsmanship in the face of the increasing industrialisation in the late 19th century.
John D MacKenzie is credited with being the instigator of the Newlyn Copper Industry. He arrived in 1888 as a painter and illustrator and in 1890 founded the Newlyn Industrial Class, instructing local people in metalwork.
The Newlyn copper working industry is still going strong today. Thank You.
