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 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!
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.


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.
