They are at least 2.5mm in thickness and are often 3mm or more. We look for pans that are thick and heavy, are made by a true craftsman and have great aesthetic quality. Big copper hand-set rivets, well done repairs (we actually love repairs), finely detailed dovetails and stamps or engravings by owners and makers all help to make a pan great. We focus on quality, function and the history of a pan.Come shop our selection of amazing pans and join the story.
