Copper is beautifully gold with a hint of pink. Copper is a little subtler than gold though, so it still is soft and pleasing to the eyes, and copper kitchen accessories have the potential to instantly elevate your kitchen from simple to sophisticated. But why use copper? What makes it so amazing versus the stainless steel we usually see in the kitchen? Well besides how lovely a copper kitchen looks… there are some practical reasons to stock up on this trend too.
It’s a popular material used in cookware because it’s very heat conductive. Because of this, copper reduces the amount of hot spots, since heat is more evenly distributed. Food can be more accurately heated, as well, since the pans are immediately reactive to changing heat levels.
Copper also weighs less, and it looks great, duh. Something about copper just adds instant class to a space. So if you’d like to invest in a copper kitchen, start with the top copper kitchen accessories we love.
