If you were lucky enough to inherit a set of copper pots or snag one at a thrift store, you’re probably already sold on their two main benefits: 1) superior heat conductivity, meaning that when you change the temperature of your burner, the temperature of your pot or pan changes almost immediately, giving you far more control when you cook; and 2) the fact that they’re just plain gorgeous—there’s nothing quite like a set of copper pots hanging by the stove to add a dose of sophisticated-yet-rustic charm to your home.
Happily, copper is a kitchen design trend that’s making a major comeback—and not just in the stovetop cookware department. In fact, big name brands like Vitamix, KitchenAid, and Bodum have started selling everything from copper-hued and copper-plated blenders, stand mixers, and coffee grinders. And increasingly more copper accessories, from kettles to colanders, are popping up in department stores.
So, if you’re just plain obsessed with copper, or want a gorgeous statement piece for your kitchen, you have more options than ever to choose from. Here, we’ve rounded up 20 of our favorite copper accessories to instantly up your kitchen’s design cred.
