I have been reading with interest all of the posts about copper pots lately. I was just at a flea market in Brussels, and I decided to buy my first pot. Please tell me how I did so that I will know how to choose more pots (make a better choice?) in the future. After cooking an excellent tomato sauce in this pot last night, I am pretty happy with copper so far.
Details about the the pot- it weighs 4.2 pounds and is 2.5 quarts. I am not sure about the interior. A magnet does stick, but not strongly. After cooking the tomato sauce last night, the interior darkened a bit. I did clean the interior with bar keepers friend, and now I am concerned the interior is nickel after reading some older copper posts. The interior has minor scratches from use, but has signs of needing to be re-lined.
Thank you in advance for any tips/advice.
