    MAYBE?!?!?!?

    10 lbs is too much for me to handle. I'd give my eyeteeth for a copper dutch oven, but I wouldn't be able to pick the darn thing up.

    Hah! I have a penchant for old school, I have to admit. I also climb, so heavy **** just makes me climb harder. Sounds like I've been training for copper use transferring anything and everything in my 4.2 qt Demeyere sauté when it's full! Grit your teeth and pronate!

    That saucepan sounds amazing. Pictures Edipis!

    It looks like any other old hammered-copper smallish sauce pan, until you pick it up.

    you were born in the wrong century, unfortunately.

    Hahahaha! I did overseas trading and sourcing for a while. I could probably find you one! It was in textiles, but I still have contacts over there who are quite resourceful.

    Cast iron handles definitely win all the old school cool points. Unfortunately, they're heavy and they get hot (albeit slowly). This is where stainless handles shine, since stainless is such a poor heat conductor. Either is a better choice than bronze.

    If you go copper, cast iron handles are a must IMO

    without a doubt..a 4 qt.

    the best one i have used to date..(i'm a home cook, only) is a Cuisinart Multiclad Unlimited..i think it was better than my similar All-clad (egads!!blasphemy)..they cooked the same, but the cuisinart pour liquids out...way better. i sold my allclad. the cuisinart has to be the best bang for the buck ever.

    i am gonna buy a 2 qt and call it good.
