Re-tin pan

Cliff Abrams Apr 19, 2001 11:38 AM

I have a very nice copper pan. The tin lining is very beat up, and i would appreciate receiving recommendations where i might go (or send it) to have it re-tinned. I live in Chicago, so someplace close would be nice. But the main thing is finding a reliable, cheap source. Many thanks.

    I just wanted to note that on seeing the title of your post, I was -sure- this was another entry in the "names for Jewish/Chinese restaurants" list!

    (Sorry I have no actual advice to give.)

      Do you have a Sur La Table in Chicago? I believe they can arrange re-tinning. If not, you can e-mail their customer service. The address will be on their web site, www.surlatable.com. Hope this helps. Also, I have heard that a copper pan can be lined with silver, but I don't know much about that. You might call a place that re-silvers plated hollow ware, to find out.

        You might the web page listed below. I can't speak to this company's services although a friend of mine was quite giddy about the selection of cookware they offer.
        Perhaps some of our NYC-based brethren can comment on Bridge Kitchenware?
