    Copper pots and pans in a professional kitchen...

    Ok I'm back on my fascination with pans.

    Does anybody cook with copper pots and pans anymore in professional kitchens or is I t only reserved for Michelin stared restaurants?

    If you do, do you keep them all shiny and sparkling?

    I have two Falk pots that unfortunately get minimal use. They are superior cookware but so heavy.

    I've used barkeeps friend but the copper is still blemished.

    I've used small copper pots for soufflés, kept them clean with a mixture of lemon juice, white vinegar, table salt & plain flour.
    I have a 3l Mauviel copper sugar pot that I use for caramels, syrups & jams, it gets an occasional polish. When I win lotto, and have my dream restaurant I'll have a lot more

    Thanks Huw and Sean. The egg white salt vinegar helped a lot. Still not pristine but better

    You need to buy a giant bottle of Tabasco sauce. Cleans tarnished copper with no effort on your part.

    At trotter's they used all copper pots. As the staggier I got to wash and polish all of them every night I was there
