The shape of this peculiar pot, inspired by the traditional Italian bean pot (fagioliera), plays not only an aesthetic function but also a practical one! The tall, narrow neck of the pot minimizes evaporation, making it ideal for the all preparations with a long cooking time - like beans.
A real showstopper due to its uncommon shape, but as versatile as any other Ruffoni stockpots, this medium sized pot is ideal for whisking up delicious soups and minestrone, and to cook beans, veggies and grains. And thanks to its particular shape it will be a conversation starter even when resting on the shelf.
Crafted in solid copper for superior heat conductivity, hammered for increased strength and lasting beauty and tin-lined by hand over fire — so naturally low-stick. The riveted handles are cast in solid bronze, and the lid is crowned by Ruffoni's signature acorns and leaves.
A timeless piece that will transition seamlessly from stovetop to tabletop, and can be proudly displayed to adorn any kitchen when not in use.
Made in Italy.
