Copper-bottom cookware

neighborguy | Mar 9, 2011 11:30 AM

I am considering buying this set:

There's 1quart, 2 quart, 5 quart, with a steamer insert and 9.5" skillet

It looks like the construction is a disk of aluminum on the bottom of the pots encapsulated by a layer of copper on the outside. I like that the lids are metal and not glass and that the handles are rivetted on rather than welded.

What are the issues with taking care of copper on the bottom? I have some ikea pots with aluminum bottoms and they have never warped and are easy to maintain.

Thanks for the expertise.
