@Okanagancook Stunning. How much work is it to keep the copper pretty?

 

And what is a Shreddie?

What supports the weight?  I'm only up to five copper pieces and I'm not about to try hanging them from anything!

Thank you both.

I use a cooper cleaner paste called Wright's Copper Clean from Amazon, around $15 can.  It is amazing.  Just 1/4 teaspoon on a sponge to clean a four quart pot.  I think the outer pots are going to be way cleaner than if one had a regular pot....my DH did not clean the outside.  The inside of these pot needs just good scrub, they are SS.  Highly recommended.  I got the thickest pots.

The top bracket is supported by a large dry wall anchor and the bottom uses a dry wall plug.  It is very, very solid.  If you want more info on the upper plug, let me know and I can forward the info.  The rack is quite heavy...thinking around four lbs..  from Wayfair.

@Okanagancook  

 

what brand are those pots ?

 

I have a collection that came from France in '85 from 

 

http://e-dehillerin.fr

 

dI used to keep the copper outside shiny , then gave up and concentrated on keeping the inside clean w BarKeepersFriend

 

a work-out before every meal !

 

I do not have a saucier :

For your lids :

 

consider saving some real cork.  flatten them w a rolling pin a bit and force under the log's handle

 

you want them tight 

 

if the lids hadles are too small  you will have to cut the cork which is hard to do and a bit dangerous

 

still get them snug under the handle

they never get hot while you simmer

 

a tip I learned in Fr.

 

great collection BTW

They are heavy.  I go to the gym!:B

these pots have replaced Cephalon pots which gave us over 25 years of service but their coating has come off.  They are going for metal recycling.
