Copper finish

Recommended Posts

start with the topic 13 threads below this one in the same subforum titled 'food grade copper and solder', then move on to the ones involving tinning, then just switch to silver entirely :)

 

 

Ignore the "13 threads down comment", threads are not static and order will change based on what else gets posted, normally the new posts are at the top, but that can be reset by users personal preferences. . the thread is here '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

Many copper alloys contain lead, so be sure of your alloy if the copper is uncoated, and you have acidic foods in them.

No coating is necessary if the correct alloy is used. Copper is still used to make pots and pans that cooking is done in.

Not normally for acidic foods,   because too much copper will be absorbed, becoming toxic. that is why most are cooking items are plated.

I still see a lot of new uncoated copper cookware, but yes , many items are tin washed. Acidic foods like tomatoes will eat at the copper.
