Cookin' with Copper

Posted June 22, 2005
Whether you love her or hate her, you have to respect Martha Stewart as a businessperson. The woman is on the money with the items she designs for K-Mart. Here’s the latest—a set of copper-clad cookware for $120. That’s for a seven-piece set, although from any manufacturer you’d pay that much just for a lid. Copper is the most efficient conductor of heat, and each piece is layered with aluminum (also a wonderful conductor of heat) and stainless steel, just like a lot of those pricier brands. This set includes a 5-quart Dutch oven, a 9-1/2 inch sauté pan, a 1-4/5 quart sauce pan and a 1 quart sauce pan, plus three lids (yes, lids count as pieces in the cookware world). If I didn’t already have more pots than I needed, I’d be buying these.
