Copper Cookware ID Help

Came across these copper pots and pans in a storage locker I purchased. I know nothing about the subject and was curious if anyone was willing to help.

They are Stamped ODI Made in Korea. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you need more info or better pictures let me know.

thank you in advance

  1. Hi, amthree:

    Your finds are current production of Old Dutch International. You can see them and check prices here:

    While relatively expensive, it is relatively low quality.

      Ahh well it would make some nice decor at least. Probably wont cook with them. Thanks for the info, greatly appreciated.

      Also , I did not include the last set op pictures. This pot is not marked or stamped. Any Idea?

        Hi, amthree:

        Don't get me wrong, you can cook in them. It's just that the copper is so thin it won't be the greatest performer.

        The colander doesn't need to be thick, so who cares?

        I have no clue as to the maker of the pan you showed most lately. The fact that the maker had to stamp those rings into the bottom is a dead giveaway that it is *very* thin metal--thay do that to add stiffness.

        ODI must have customers who spend good money on their pans, so I'm sure someone will buy them if you resell. I can't wrap my brain around using them strictly as wallhangers, but hey, I'm spoiled.
