Duparquet Copper: Luxe Cookware from a Rhode Island Artisan

June 19, 2019

It all started with a flea market discovery in Burgundy, France, according to Jim Hamann of Duparquet, a Rhode Island-based maker of high-end, made-to-order copper cookware. The battered pot in question? An offcast from the three-star La Côte d’Or, presided over by famed chef Bernard Loiseau. He bought the pot, took it home, and set out to restore it to its former glory.

Soon after, he started East Coast Tinning: “We refurbish copper pots and pans by retinning the cooking surface with the traditional hand-wiped method,” he says. “Any dents are repaired and the exterior copper is polished to a new shine.”

His more recent venture is Duparquet Copper, a line of luxe copper pots (as well as a sterling silver line for the truly devoted—and price insensitive chef).

Here’s a look:
