Copper Cooking Pot

About this object

This medium sized copper cooking pot was a common item in Pender kitchens. The copper handle did not conduct heat well, thereby allowing the cook to pick up the pot without using a hot pad. The pot, which was lighter than the traditional cast iron pot, was lined with heat conducting metal which quickly became hot but lost its heat just as fast when taken off the fire.
