The copper sheet is held into place and rotated quickly whilst being pressed over the rounded mold shape to create the sauté pan. The feint circles left in the copper as it was stretched into shape from its creation are still visible in the side walls of the copper, very similar in looks to very worn down grooves on an old vinyl record. This gorgeous windsor pan has a super thick iron lifting handle firmly secured with three massive copper rivets, and it has a tear drop opening at the top end to enable you to hang the saucepan on a hook when not in use.
The handle baseplate is sturdily riveted to the body of the pan with 3 copper rivets. The tin lining is still shiny. But it has darkened slightly in places just from age. All tin linings darken over time, used or not used. It just needs a hot soapy soak and then drying with a soft cloth before first use.
