Solid copper 4.75" saucepan with hand-applied fire-tinned interior has a porcelain insert which allows slow, even temperature for melting chocolate or butter, making sauces and holding foods at temperature. The unique v-shaped insert allows greater surface area for the steam to envelope the bowl, giving more even heat. Brass handles. Lid included. This has been sitting out on display so needs to be polished and the lid is slightly dented.
