Dude...that hammered copper pan and top is pretty as hell....can you take a pic of it for me...so I can see it close up?
still am,mate...got gills behind me ears,just ask me ladies!!
here's your pics,mac.it's a portuguese cataplana,the original pressure cooker.the portuguese invented it many moons ago.hinged clam shell of copper lined with tin.the clamps hold the two halves together but it's designed not be a perfect seal.that way a little steam escapes,so no need for a safety valve but the pressure is sufficient to speed up cooking with little loss of moisture in the food.can also be used open,as a wok.as you can see,when it's open it fits perfectly onto two of my hob plates.double wok,wicked or what?included a pic of the rainbow that i can see from my window,for good luck!
