Bourgeat Copper - different qualities or all 2.5mm?

  • 1

I'm in the market for a 5ish qt brasier or rondeau.

All of my copper is actually Mauviel 2.5mm with cast iron handles. I've stuck with this because I've enjoyed a deep deep discount through my former employer.

However, we didn't carry the roundeaux and I didn't like the 5qt saute due to lack of helper handle. I also am no longer at this job and since i'm paying full price am looking at options from Falk and Bourgeat as well.

My husband sent me this to look at http://www.wasserstrom.com/restaurant...

Seems like a decent price but the thickness of the copper is not called out. Everythign else I've found on Bourgeat is 2.5mm. Is that the only quality they make?

I live in Phoenix so finding Falk or Bourgeat to look at and feel in person is not possible that I know of. I'm comfortable ordering the Falk without seeing but would like more info on Bourgeat if possible....

Thanks!

  1. It's 2.5mm in the catalogue. Only the butter and sugar pans are thinner.
