Dehilleran's in Paris and Copper Pots

Do you love copper pots like I do? Well do I have some inspiration for you today including a cool kitchen shop in Paris that I visited which was copper heaven! First lets start with some inspiration of copper pots:

I saw the above pots all over Paris - aren't they just wonderful?


Now I want to share one of my favorite kitchen cookware shops in Paris - Dehillerin. When I was in Paris, I did not have a DSLR camera and therefore need to scan my photos from when we went there.

This shop was copper heaven! It is a family owned business that opened back in early 1820's and what a unique shop. If you love copper, then you will love to shop here! The store is filled from floor to ceiling with kitchen supplies for the French kitchen. When I visited there, several French chefs were in their attire including their high hats and all! What a great experience I had while shopping there and I could not leave there without purchasing some things for my kitchen back then! (Just wish I bought more copper!) Oh well, they do have a online catalog and they do ship) Here is my chef print from Dehillerin's - I shared it recently in my kitchen post.

I also wanted to show you my copper pots that I bought at Dehillerins in Paris.







Love the patina on the lid--



I also included a site on how to clean copper with items you might have in your pantry:


Using vinegar and salt always does the trick for me in cleaning copper.

Do you have any copper pieces?  I am thinking about purchasing some more when I am in Europe again, however, will need to build another shelf in kitchen to store it!

Thanks for your visit.

  9. How pretty! How ever did you carry these back? I love copper as well. I fact, I want to buy a large copper mixing bowl to make macaroons, as they say the copper reacts perfectly with the eggs!
