Care of Tin and Copperware

With reasonable care tin and copper cookware can provide many years of good service. One of the most
important things to remember is that soldered seams on tin and copper and tin lining of copper melts
at a relatively low temperature. Don't allow your tin or copperware to boil dry. When cooking over an
open fire, keep the fluid level as high as possible, turn the side-seam away from the hottest flame if possible.
On a long spout tea or coffee pot try to have the water level somewhere in the spout. When cooking with
tin or copper its best to use wooden spoons or such to keep from scratching the surface tin off your pot.
After use, wash and then thoroughly dry your tin ware to prevent rust or oxidation. Do not store food or
liquids in your tin kettles or pots. After drying, a light coat of vegetable or mineral oil will also help prevent
rust. Avoid using steel wool or abrasive cleaners on tin ware, as they may easily scratch the tin plate leaving
the item prone to rust. Copper reacts with acidic foods or beverages to form "verdigris", a greenish
colored form of corrosion. Because of this reaction all of my copper cook ware is coated with high grade
of tin over the interior surfaces, to render it food safe. It's not really necessary to tin line drinking water vessels
as long as they are dried completely before storing. In the event some verdigris is visible, some steel wool
will take care of it.

Note

Wrights Copper cream is a good source to clean your copper,
do not, get it on the tin coating inside the vessel, it will turn it black.
It’s normal, after time and use, for the tinning in a vessel to turn a gray color.
It too can be somewhat polished using Wrights Silver Cream.
