A few months ago I scored a 10" Sur La Table branded copper fry pan for $50. It was in their clearance section and from what I can tell, SLT discontinued their copper lineup. I was curious about who actually makes it for them, as the bottom of the pan is stamped "Made in Italy."
I sent an email to SLT's customer service and the reply says that they have "Mauviel, in Italy" make their copper cookware. From what I've seen, Mauviel makes their stuff in France. Anyone know if Mauviel has a factory in Italy, or was the rep from SLT mistaken?
The pan measures 2mm in thickness, no rounded lip, and stainless steel handle. Regardless of who actually made the pan, $50 for a 2mm copper pan is a super bargain.
