Copper Handcrafted Hammered Cataplana "Heritage"
Used to cook typically Mediterranean dishes, especially clams and seafood in general. The cooking process used by the CATAPLANA prevents the loss of the ingredients, ensuring full and excellent flavour. Furthermore, cooking in the CATAPLANA is healthier since the recipes use less fat, and thus contain fewer calories. The typical copper Cataplana (tin-plated interior), like ours, distributes the heat more evenly and efficiently. If you decide to buy our copper Cataplana, note our tab "COPPER - Instructions for use" on this site. This ancient traditional Cataplana model is totally handcrafted like in the old days, in this way we use in its conception the same old methods that were used by the ancient craftsmen masters. We use also first quality copper with a thickness of 1,2mm to give it more robustness. The interior is tinned with elevated quality and the traditional closures are made of high quality brass. The bottom is flat, being in this way prepared to be used in the new technology electric stoves. About the available sizes, we have the following: Ø 20cm (2 to 3 persons); Ø 24cm (3 to 5 persons); Ø 27cm (5 to 6 persons); Ø 30cm (7 to 8 persons) e Ø 35cm (9 to 10 persons).
