Tin Lined Copper Cookware & Electric Stovetop

Atudorquene | Nov 9, 200709:17 PM     3

I was hoping that the Board might be able to help me. I recently purchased some vintage Copral Tin Lined Copper Cookware with brass handles. They were made in Portugal, and are quite heavy. They are in perfect unused condition, I will have to remove the lacquer that is still intact. I rent and our stove is electric. However, some people have been telling me that one cannot use tin lined copper cookware on an electric stovetop. That the electric elements get too hot and melt the tin. Is this true? Or are there any tips that you can give me for cooking with this new cookware. Thanks for any tips and information you can provide me.
