If the pan is oval or square, an average of the length & width should be used to calculate the diameter measurement. (L+W)÷2=Diameter

For round flat covers please use the diameter in mm’s multiplied by 0.10 (£1.00 per CM)
If oval or square an average of the two lengths should be used.

Large items that work out to over £90.00 may incur an additional 20% charge.

Newlyn Tinning does not currently offer the tinning of kettles. Please search for electroplating.

Each and every pot or pan I receive will undergo a thorough 5 Stage process.

1. First of all, each pan will undergo a deep clean to remove all oils, greases and baked on carbon providing a clean item to be further worked.
2. Next, each pan will be reshaped and all rivets checked and tightened.
3. Following the shaping, pans will be stripped of all oxides leaving a molecular sound surface that’s clean & bright.
Minor splits and Braze cracks will now be repaired if needed with food grade silver solder. Sorry, major splits, gaps and faults will need to be discussed.
4. Now the pan is ready for tinning and will have a traditional whiting to provide protection to the exterior & a specially formulated flux by Newlyn Tinning applied to the cooking surface. The whole pan is then heated to the correct temperature & re-tinned. Tinning the whole pan at once will give a superior lining compared to tinning in sections as many do.
The tinning process used is the traditional hand wiped method. The only way for quality copper cookware!!!!
5. Finally, each pan will be externally cleaned and polished to reveal the beautiful luster of the copper.

If you see faint pink, bare copper or green verdigris it’s time for Re-Tinning!

During quite periods turnaround is usually 2-3 weeks from receiving to return.
