Welcome to COPPERPANS.COM, the online store for Falk Copper Cookware in the USA.
Falk Culinair Copper Cookware is manufactured just north of Brussels, in Wespelaar, Belgium. Falk is a small company that, some thirty plus years ago, developed a technology that permanently bonds a very thin layer of stainless steel to a very thick layer of solid red copper. This was significant because, prior to this development, most copper cookware was tin-lined which, inherently, had limitations.
Namely, tin-lined copper has to be periodically re-tinned and can not be preheated for sautéing and such. Falk's bimetal technology has, essentially, made tin-lined copper cookware obsolete, though there are still purists that swear by it. Their argument is that stainless-lined copper cookware is not as conductive as tin-lined. While this is technically true, the difference is so small that it is not meaningful for most cooks. The stainless lining in our cookware is only .008" and does not affect the thermal benefits derived from the copper. Moreover, having a permanent and inert cooking surface far outweighs any nominal loss of conductivity.
In early 1996, I discovered Falk Copper Cookware while staying in Brussels and began distributing it later in the year, initially through normal retail channels. We opened our Yahoo! Store in June of 1999 and have been selling direct to consumers since that time.
I am pleased that we continue to make, what we believe to be, the finest cookware in the world available to cooks that share our passion for cooking excellence in USA. It certainly isn't cheap, but how do you put a price on superior performance and quality - the best that there is? Quite literally, there are no trade-up or upgrade options when you own Falk Copper Cookware. This is it.
