What's the appeal of copper pots, anyway? Why would they justify such a premium?

they don't hold temperature very much, so easy to control the heat. Sometimes this is great, sometimes you want something like cast iron, which holds heat very well.

that, and they're pretty.

I have a mix of copper, cast iron, and stainless. Diversity is key.

It's been such a bad day that I have gone past the point of being angry or upset.

Copper cookware also distributes temperature evenly, so you don't get hot spots.

I think idfnl should tell us about the different property of pans.

Two of the most dificult metals to join are copper and stainless steel because copper is so conductive that by the time its hot enough to take the brazing medium the stainless is too hot

I concur. You've spent so much time rubbing one out, that you might as well....rub one out

I hope the coffee shop across the street from my place shuts down so I never have to walk by and see my basic ass ex-coworkers again.

I hope that the next place I live has a store where I can get candy within a 2 minute walk. I really want some candy right now.

Can't imagine what a set of pure copper pans would cost.

Edit: also remember reading that it's not ideal to use copper for the outer surfaces because they stain easily. Also, isn't copper super malleable compared to the other metals? So it dents easily too.

I feel like you added a zero there.
