French Pouring Pot
The historic use for this type of pot would have been to as a liquid measure., to pour out amounts of all genres of beverages, primarily of the alcoholic variety. Today, mundanely, many are boiling their morning’s eggs within.
We use ours simply to heat small amounts of liquids and otherwise to look good on the shelf. But we would like to believe that somewhere, someone still uses one to measure out brandy and heating it to perfection!
An incredibly handy pan to have, with its dovetailed bottom and new re-tinning, it is not only functional, but beautiful.
We love antique copper pans and use them exclusively in our home. Copper conducts heat quickly and evenly with no hot spots on the bottom of the pan, allowing for greater control because the pans heat up faster, then cool down faster when taken from the heat.
Copper pots are the prize of a chef’s kitchen.
