We have so many customers asking about the difference between a casserole/braiser and a stew/stock pot. It might be a little confusing especially since you can pretty much prepare any dish in any of our copper pots as all of them can be either used on your stove or in the oven. Casseroles or braisers are usually more shallow compared to stew/stock pots with the same width. Using this type of pot for braising meat means that a wider base allows to nicely brown your meat before it simmers.
The low sides are also beneficial for dishes that fill out the pot such as casseroles since the heat distribution on the side is more effective compared to pots with taller sides. Our rounded copper casserole is available in 5 different sizes and comes complete with a lid. All of our copper casseroles / braisers are made using one single sheet of 3mm thick pure copper providing a very fast and even heat distribution throughout the entire body of the cookware. The rounded transition from the sides of the pot to the base makes working with utensils inside the pot conveniently easy.
