Mauviel Copper - Restrictions on Heat

mundty | Jan 31, 2013 04:42 AM

I'm just hoping to clarify what exactly, the limits are to Mauviel copper regarding heat. The product page states to only use Medium or lower. I recently bought the 6501.00 5-Piece Set with the copper Fry Pan, Saute Pan, and Sauce Pot and I'm curious whether I should pick up one of their Stainless Fry Pans for searing, sauteing and other high heat applications. I've also heard that because the copper reacts so much better to heat, that I may not need High or Medium High anymore, thoughts?

I obviously don't want to damage my new pots, and they haven't arrived yet so I'm trying to figure out if I'd be better off just dropping $95 on one of the Stainless Steel fry pans?

Thanks for reading!
