Every vessel Brooklyn Copper Cookware makes is spun from heavy copper and wipe-laid by hand with pure tin.
Every pan in the Brooklyn Copper Cookware range takes at least 8, and at most 11 hours to build, and is the singular effort of a small group of coppersmiths, tinsmiths and ironsmiths, all steeped in skills perfected centuries ago and once again available in America.
From the curve of the handles to the slope of the base, each and every element of Brooklyn Copper Cookware has been designed with a purpose. How BCC goes about design is substantially different from how most manufacturers develop new designs these days. Barbara Stork has some 25 years of experience designing castings. She may be one of the last designers of anything three-dimensional who neither knows nor wishes to know anything of computer-aided design. She draws all of our plans, elevations and designs by hand, modeling them in clay to create masters that go on to become our cookware tool sets.
Despite being best-of-class in nearly every dimension, there is nothing revolutionary about what we make. Copper cookware is one of humanity’s primal technologies, and BCC has not strayed from the basis of its success: Copper + Tin + Iron. Rather, we endeavor at every step to understand and honor these elemental materials and the process of bringing them together.
Up to 32 hands touch every piece of BCC, and every one of them is feeling for fit, finish and the resonance of unimpeachable quality. Our eyes have to see themselves clearly in everything we make before yours do.
There’s copper cookware, and there’s Brooklyn Copper Cookware.
