Why I use tin lined copper pans
In fact, more and more people are now turning back to tin lined copper cookware. Therefore making it the original and enduring Non-Stick, 100% Food Safe, cookware surface!!!
Since well before the Bronze Age, the Copper Age!, tin lined cookware has been employed in kitchens the world over for it’s super responsive temperature control given its 25 times more conductive than stainless steel, even heat distribution and non-stick properties.
Julia Child once advised in Mastering the Art of French Cooking “Copper pots are the most satisfactory of all to cook in, as they hold and spread the heat well” .
This is why many chef’s and cooks always choose tin lined copper, not to mention it looks great and each freshly laid lining can out last up to five Teflon©, PTFE lined pans within the professional environment. That is to say, five pans rendered useless and off to the tip for each time a copper pan is retinned! Thats not to mention the health risks surrounding PTFE.
Tin lined copper pans are in fact good for you
Indeed they are. When we use a tin lined pan, as with aluminium, Stainless steel, iron, or the dreaded PTFE, it will impart traces into the food when cooking. This is a simple fact and the very reason copper pans are tinned with a safe metal element that imparts no flavour, nor harmful byproducts into our bodies.
When we use a tin lined copper pan micro trace elements of tin will be absorbed, mainly in the form of tin oxide, and this is thought to be of great health benefits.
For example this study indicates improvements with fatigue, some forms of depression and even shows 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.
Unquestionably, from the world’s top chefs to the humblest cooks, your cookware will undergo a retinning transformation resulting in beautiful pots & pans ready for many years of unparalleled use.

The history of Newlyn copper
Newlyn Tinning is also helping to sustain Newlyn’s famed Copper Working heritage through the 21st Century!!! You, the customer, is the main factor in this since 1890!
During the late 19th century the fishing industry in Cornwall was becoming unreliable as a source of income. Not only that, but bad weather and seasonal fluctuations brought enforced periods of inactivity. Due to this it was decided that an alternative means of employment could be gained by training the fishermen to produce items in copper.
During this time much of the influence 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.
None other than the famous artist John D MacKenzie is credited with being the instigator of the Newlyn Copper Industry. MacKenzie arrived in 1888 as a painter and illustrator and in 1890 subsequently founded the Newlyn Industrial Class, instructing local people in metalwork.
The Newlyn copper working industry is still going strong today. With this in mind, thank you for reading and hope you find the rest of the site and service useful.
