Mauviel & STL 18"paella pan-Help Please with Many ?'s-MM+Other ?'s

learnit2 | | Jun 16, 2012 07:40 PM

Hi~I am new here and just found a Sur La Table paella pan made by Mauviel (marked STL and Made in France) with brass handles that is 18"(not including handles). In my searching I also came upon the name Cuprinox Pour Le Table so I am not sure that I have named it correctly.
I read that it should be 2.0mm but it seems that mine is 1/8" or 3.175 mm (I don't have a micrometer so I used a mm ruler.) However I measured it from inner rim to outer rim and I think that I must have possibly measured both the stainless steel and the copper.
Not being at all familiar with gourmet cooking pans, I am hoping for clarity as to exactly what the name of this beautiful piece of cookware is and also what is the correct mm size.
Compared to the many outstanding and knowledgeable people that post here, and the fact that I believe this pan should go to a person who would use it and appreciate the workmanship of it. So that being said I do want to sell it and I would like to know if I should attempt to clean it or leave it as it is. The stainless steel shows what appears to be white spotting here and there and the copper bottom shows what I consider to be normal discoloration that I have seen with other brass items.
I really hope that I am not offending anyone with my questions and that they are appropriate for this board.
Many Thanks to all for any help you offer....
