Some one I have bought copper from in the past has a new Italian copper stewpot, actually it's 11 inches wide and 8 tall.. I inquired about the thickness and was told it's 1.5 mm. I said no thanks, and they said it's quite nice.
Any copper I've seen in a store that thin just seems flimsy, and I question why they make them. But... I have no personal experience and it is at a good price- about $160 . I don't need it for decoration.
Is there any reason why I might reconsider and purchase this?
