Su Prattu De Cassa. It is the reproduction of an ancient pan probably of Nuragic origin, as copper was one of the first metals to have been worked by man.
Its structure is formed by two superimposed plates, joined together by a joint which does not allow the vapors to leak out, forcing them to be completely reabsorbed by the food, exalting its flavor.
Used by hunters to cook wild game on the spot, it was placed directly on the coals while they continued the hunt.
The food in fact does not need to be mingled: copper is one of the best conductors of heat, which allows a perfectly uniform cooking. The interior is covered by a layer of tin which insulates the metal sheet by the food acids, preventing formation of the classic copper oxide.
You can cook everything in it, from fish to vegetables to stew. You can use it, as well as on the coals, even in a wood or regular oven, or on the small burner. You need very low heat to cook, with considerable energy savings.
This little-known pan is part of the continuing search for conventional tools of the typical sardinian cuisine, appreciated worldwide. The craftsman produces it in different formats, with variable diameter.
