Perhaps less known than other kitchen tools, the Bain-Marie is a precious ally for many recipes, both sweet and savory. You can use it to melt chocolate and cheese for a sweet or savory fondue, of course, but this beautiful double-boiler will prove useful for many sauces and desserts as well.
The insert is made of durable porcelain, easy to use and care for, while the solid copper pot can have infinite other uses as an independent saucepan.
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 stick handles are cast in solid bronze, and the lid is crowned by Ruffoni's signature acorns and leaves.
Made in Italy.

Historia, meaning 'history' in Latin, is perhaps Ruffoni's most iconic collection. Each shape has been created by our master coppersmiths in the same way as cooking vessels were manufactured in royal castles and palaces upon the request of court cooks. Truly a celebration of our shared culinary history, with this collection we relive centuries of tradition and honor exquisite craftmanship:
Each item is skillfully crafted from a single sheet of copper for maximum heat conductivity and superior temperature control
Hammered by our master artisans for increased strength and lasting beauty
Internally lined by hand over fire with the purest, durable nonreactive tin to be naturally low-stick and allow reduced pan weight

Solid copper lids, enriched with finials in exquisite shapes such as acorns, artichokes, vegetables and animals to bring warmth and elegance to any table
Heirloom quality items, worthy of being handed down through generations
