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.

If you are unsure of what makes a good choice of pan please take a moment to visit the “What is a good pan?” guide.

 

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.

From initial inquiry through to delivery Steve has been helpful, thoughtful and prompt to respond. The 10" copper sauté pan he has recommended will be the first to my hand, and a piece to pass down the generation, it will change how you view cooking again! 10/10 I will be back again

Couldn't locate a specialist tinning service in Ireland.Slight trepidation on my part about sending off such bulky but ultimately quite fragile pots to the extremity of England. I got clear concise information on how to proceed, an accurate timeline and a superb renovation job. What more can you ask? Barra Ó Céileachair

Sent Steve a set of 5 antique french pans to be re-tinned. He couldn't have been more helpful and the job he has done is absolutely stunning. To say I'm delighted is an understatement. Chatted several times on the phone regarding the work I wanted him to do. Steve is a really pleasant and interesting and trustworthy guy. I cannot recommend NEWLYN TINNING highly enough. Many thanks Steve 🙂

I got my pans re-tinned back in October and could not fault the service. You can see my previous review for the details, but safe to say I would 100% recommend this service. However, this review is because one of my pan linings had slightly discolored and I didn't understand why. I thought I would message steve at Newlyn Tinning to ask him, he replied within minutes explaining that I had overheated the pan and linked me some articles helping explain further. Yet again exceptional customer service, even with past customers!

Incredibly professional service. Communication was excellent. Information on the website was extremely helpful. They re-tinned 7 saucepans for us, the results were far better than we expected. Return packing was also excellent. Cannot praise this company enough!
