“The Best Pan of Any Kind at Retail”

Chowhound Logo

“Not only are BCC’s pans American-made, they’re produced by metal crafters in America’s rust belt who kept these irreplaceable skills alive like a lost language. And, as you’ll read, while the BCC v2.0 pans are at least the equals of the greatest European makers’, they stand apart as unmistakably American in form.”

“BCC on the other-hand is making a selective range of artisanal copper products by hand and without compromise. They are appealing to those cooks who want to reach the pinnacle of their craft, much as the Stradivarius workshop once did for musicians many generations ago.”

“I’ve not seen their equal.”

Words are going to fail me a bit here – but wow. I received some of the pots last week. They have not been put to the stove yet – I know that is their purpose and rightful destination, but for several days now I’ve let them be in their own space on my coffee table. What art! What craftsmanship! What timeless pieces! I knew they were going to be impressive, but this is above and beyond. In all my years of cooking, numbering perhaps 30, and specifically in the last 5+ years of cooking on various forms of copper, I’ve not seen anything like this before. After thoroughly inspecting my Brooklyn Copper Cookware both visually and by touch – suffice it to say I’ve not seen their equal. —Philip Meech

James M., First-time Customer

“I am in love.”

I wanted to say how much I love my first piece. Taking a bit of inspiration from your instagram, the first dish was potatoes au gratin which was a delight. I think it tasted better only because I was using BCC. Such a beautiful, well built piece of cookware. I am in love. I am sure you noticed that I put an order in for another piece as well; you go down a rabbit hole once the first piece arrives.

The Rondeau feels like a Rolex, something substantive, just out of this world. I cannot wait for the second piece to arrive. I am already planning dishes! If I find myself in Brooklyn, I will definitely reach out. Would love to shake your hand and buy you a glass of wine as thanks for such an incredible product.— James M., NYC

“A true artisan shop.”

I am a designer, and years ago, growing frustrated with product quality and customer service from large retailers and manufacturers, I began seeking out small artisan creators to service my clients’ needs. Artisans simply take pride in their work and want happy customers: the quality is reliably outstanding, the designs unique, and customer service is unbeatable. Brooklyn Cooper Cookware is a true artisan shop, meeting all of these criteria and more. They were even willing and able to refer me to a cast iron skillet company. I highly recommend them! —Cheryl Holben

“The pans are great!”

Before using these pans, I was worried that tin lined copper was only for extremely skilled professional level chefs, but after using it, I realize that NOT using tin lined copper requires a much higher level of skill! When you use the wrong pots or pans, tasks that are actually very easy, become very difficult (for example ~ making a roux for my toddler’s macaroni and cheese, or sautéing onions just right, or deglazing the pan after lightly searing beef in butter and then sautéing onions and mushrooms to add to a yummy stew, making gravy etc). The pans are great! —Heather Lynne Kwon

Sharon Fain, Once and Future Restoration Customer

“So rare to find.”

Wow! How refreshing to find people passionate about their field, and in providing service to their (as yet not) customers! Kudos, and you made my not-so-good day a lot better now that I know the pan is OK to continue using.

Again thanks for your wonderful knowledge and camaraderie! So rare to find – and I’ll be keeping you in my “refer everyone and forever depend on these guys” file! —Sharon Fain

“The 10 Best Brands of Kitchen Gear Made in America”

“Some people have a shoe thing, or a purse thing, or a car thing. And then there are people with a copper thing. Cooking with copper just feels different. The metals responds to a cook’s adjustments with a swiftness that makes the cook feel more in control, and more unified with the process. There’s a tactile magic to it that no other cookware can match—plus, the pans just look really foxy. Though plenty of European manufacturers have made copper cooking vessels for centuries, there’s an American upstart: Brooklyn Copper Cookware, which makes pans and pots in the old style, with tin lining and cast-iron handles. They’re gorgeous in every sense of the word.”
