I'm planning on making a trip to Paris this summer and taking advantage of the great cookware. I've read around a bit and concluded that some of the big name stores to buy cookware are:
And brands to look for are Mauviel and Falk Culinair.
I'm looking to buy a good-sized (10-11inch) curved sauteuse evasee made of copper with stainless steel lining. Keeping in mind that I'm a college student on a budget but willing to make an investment out of the rare chance to travel to Paris, are there any alternative places in Paris to buy what I'm looking for?
I'm not picky about branding or looks, but I do want a quality, preferably copper, saute pan that is responsive and can maintain its heat well (for all those stir frys I plan to cook in it!). I don't mind having a non-brand pan at all so long as it meets these requirements.
Looking at the prices here, it seems like what I want will run me $150-$200. What is about the lowest price I can expect in Paris?
