Copper Windsor Pans

JAO Originals is very proud to present a line of handcrafted copper Windsor pans in 3 sizes.  All of my copper cookware is hand spun from commercially pure copper that is 0.093" thick (2.3 mm).  I DO NOT use alloyed coppers like many manufactures do.  All pans also have a hand wiped tin lining using grade "A" tin.

There are very few choices for handcrafted copper cookware that is Made in the USA.  With that said, there are only one or two shops who actually make the pieces they sell from start to finish.   JAO Originals is one of them.  I am a small one man shop that takes great pride in what I do as everything comes into my shop as raw flat material.  Nothing is outsourced.  The copper arrives in sheets that are cut into squares that I circle shear into the blanks needed for spinning.  The handles come in as flat sheet that is cut to shape, finished, and formed to fit the pans as needed.  All of the spinning, tinning and polishing work is also done right here in the shop.  Since everything is made one piece at a time, it's personal.

Being one of the best conductors of heat, copper makes outstanding cookware that is highly responsive to changes while cooking.  All of the copper pots and pans I make have a hand wiped tin lining that is done right here in the shop.  It is not sent out to be done.  Hand wiped tin like metal spinning is a dying art that takes a lot of practice to get right.  Being a hand wiped lining, it is not picture perfect but that is what makes every piece unique.  The tin lining is also what makes the copper safe for use for everything from hamburgers to simmering a tomato sauce.  Properly cared for, the lining will last for many years before it needs to be replaced. Tin linings do darken with use but that is completely normal and does not affect how well the pan works.

Why did I choose the 0.093" (2.3mm) thickness?  There is a lot of debate about the thickness of copper cookware.  Most agree the thinner materials, 0.063" and less, are not the best for a pan that will last many many years.  In my opinion the problem with the thicker materials, 0.125" and up, is weight.  Pans made from thicker materials can really start to get heavy.  That may not seem to be a big deal but if you spend any amount of time moving the pan around the stove, it can really take a toll on your hands and arms.  In my opinion the 0.093" thickness is perfect.  It keeps the weight of the pan manageable and is also very responsive to changes in heat.

The handles on the pans are made from 3/16" thick carbon steel and secured with 1/4" copper rivets.  My handles do require a small amount of care from time to time being they are carbon steel.  Basically when the pan is still warm from use take a paper towel with a small amount of vegetable shortening or oil and gently rub a very thin coat on the handle. The metal takes on a wet look and you simply take a clean paper towel and wipe the handle clean.  You are good to go until you think it needs to be done again.  Almost any cooking oil will work.

Please note the following tips.
--Pure copper cookware will not work on an induction stove top.
--Never heat empty copper cookware as it can damage the tin lining. Always have something in the pan.
--Always use low to medium heat when cooking with copper.
--Tin melts at 450 degrees.  Tin lined cookware should not be used in a oven or broiler.
--Never use metal utensils as they can damage the tin.  Use only wooden or plastic utensils.

JAO Originals may be a small one man shop but I can offer something that the big companies can not. A product that is handmade by a craftsman one piece at a time.
