How are copper pots and pans retinned?
Before the retinning of any copper pot or pan can commence there are several steps of preparation. Firstly, each and every pan is submerged and deep cleaned. This not only removes built up grease but also hardened carbon deposits. Next on the list is reshaping the pan to remove any warps & dents along with tightening any rivets. This process however will not remove age related nicks nor detract from the overall appearance of a well used, well loved pan. At this point any rivets that are damaged can be replaced along with splits being repaired with high temperature food grade silver solder (additional fees usually apply). Following this the stripping of all old lining including surface oxides will take place leaving a molecular sound surface that’s clean & bright. Finally, the pans will have a traditional whiting applied to provide protection to the exterior and a traditional acid flux specially formulated by Newlyn Tinning will be applied to the cooking surface. After that the whole pan is heated to the correct temperature and retinned. Tinning the whole pan at once will give a superior lining compared to tinning in sections as many do.
As can be seen Newlyn Tinning offers a new lease of life to your copper cookware with a full retinning and reconditioning service. Hand Wiped Tinning using only the purest food grade tin. The Only Method for Quality Cookware.
Many photos of my finished work can be found within my store listings and I never use Stainless Steel lined cookware easily identified by a bare rim with very thin silver coloured stainless liner to promote my service or showcase my work!
How much does it cost to get copper pots and pans Retinned?
The cost of retinning copper cookware, which includes exterior polishing is £0.16 per MM. Larger items that calculate in excess of £90 usually incur a 20% large item surcharge. To calculate the total millimetres and the cost of tin lining a copper pot or pan add the diameter and the height together to get the total MM’s, then multiply by 0.16 to give the exact cost in GBP. (Diameter + Height) x 0.16 = Retinning Cost.

Can you recondition unlined copper cookware?
Yes, Newlyn Tinning can restore this also by fully deep cleaning and polishing of your treasured confectionery, preserve or other patisserie grade cookware that requires no lining using Osborne Canning Compound. This vegetable based polishing compound is particularly favoured by the food industry.
In this case please contact me for more details but its usually half the price of the retinning service.
