Saucemaking need not be intimidating with this beautiful hammered French copper bain marie. The secret lies in its French porcelain insert, which envelops the sauce in soft, delicate heat and maintains it at the proper temperature.
The insert has a 1.6 qt. capacity and is 14cm (5-1/2") in diameter with a removable bronze handle and a snug-fitting lid [adorned by a bronze acorn knob]. The lid also fits the classically tin-lined bottom, thus serving as a saucepan. The thickness of the copper on this beautiful piece is 2mm, making it quite heavy. A wonderful wedding present for the cooking couple.
