Piggy Kitchen is proud to announce the addition of re-tinning and polishing services.
Copper cookware is an investment, and needs a resurfacing of tin after extensive use. Rule of thumb: If you can see exposed copper or even verdigris (green copper oxide) on the tin surface, its time for a refresh. We also recommend re-tinning antique pieces that retain their original lining, as it may contain lead or other dangerous impurities.
We use only food-grade elemental Tin (99.9999%), and a technique called a "French Wipe", which leaves visible wipe marks in the generously applied new surface.
Finally, a high polish to the copper brings those beauties back to their former glory.
Our pricing for re-tinning and re-polishing is as follows: Measure down one side of the piece, across the longest diameter (in cases of oval pans), and up the following side. Multiply the total measurement by $8.00.
For the sauté pan above: 4" + 12" + 4" = 20" x $8.00 = $160.
Shipping is not included.
