About FCS


About Us: We began this business in 1986 with a love of food and a desire to provide our customers the best copper cookware and giftware for the best possible prices. We began with Pierre Vergnes’, extra thick 2.5 mm French copper product line, and have since expanded to include our very own lines of FCS Tri-Ply Copper Cookware and FCS Copper Bowls made to fit three styles of KitchenAid mixers. You will be thrilled to cook with our superbly crafted copper cookware and proud to display our uniquely authentic copper giftware!
Our mission is to educate as many people as we can about the health and culinary benefits of cooking with quality copper cookware. We also wish to provide the absolute best customer experience along with our luxury cookware and giftware.
We’re Getting Famous! French Copper Studio’s FCS Line of copper cookware have been featured around the world in magazines like Elle.
Our French Line of Copper Cookware and Giftware is the kind of quality that stems from over a 400 year old tradition in Southern France. Nowhere else will you find designs that have evolved over centuries of feedback from some of Europe’s greatest chefs, gourmets and aristocrats. Their Foundry still uses traditional methods that date back to the Renaissance era and Master Coppersmiths in the Pierre Vergnes Studio build on that tradition in the final manufacturing process. Quality, design perfection and pride of ownership are crafted into each piece you own.
Copper Width -- Our French Line of copper cookware is a combined 2.5 mm thick. This line has a full 2.0 mm of copper with a 0.5 mm traditional tin lining. See our Services Page to learn about our re-tinning service. You will be pleased to know, that our French copper giftware is also a full 2.0 mm pure copper-- unprecedented quality! Strength and Security - The solid copper rivets used to attach the cookware’s’ handles provide strength and security while also enhancing the beauty of your cookware. Cast-Iron Handles – Our solid cast iron handles have a low heat transfer rate, will not overheat like brass, and can withstand the highest of oven temperatures. Uniqueness -- Every item we sell is hand-crafted and unique bearing the particular appearance of foundry-forged copper and artist’s signature stamp. For the price, there is simply no match! Our FCS Tri-Ply Line of Copper Cookware was a collaboratively created labor of love. We have you, our customers, to thank as well as over 25 years experience selling and using French Copper. We discovered that many of our customers “wished” for a lighter version of the French copper that was also easy to clean, less expensive and didn’t have to be relined after years of use; and we noticed after years of using French copper that a thicker handle that didn’t need a pot holder would be extremely useful. Thus, our FCS Tri-Ply Line of Copper Cookware was born! Copper Width -- Our FCS Tri-Ply Line of copper cookware is specially designed to avoid the hot spots usually found with stainless steel cookware. It has 1.0 mm of copper with a fused aluminum core and stainless steel lining. This is the first time this has ever been done! Our competitors’ Tri-Ply copper lines have only 0.6 mm copper or less! Strength and Security - The non-corrosive rivets used to attach the handles provide strength and security while not detracting from the overall design. Thick Stainless Steel Handles – Our solid Stainless Steel handles have a beautiful tapered bulb and finger grips, which makes them extremely easy to hold while full and potholders aren’t necessary! Uniquely Light – FCS Tri-Ply Copper Cookware is much lighter than traditional French copper! One of the terrific natural benefits of using Stainless Steel lining with an Aluminum core and pure Stainless Steel handles is that the finished cookware weighs significantly less. For those of you that want beautiful copper cookware, but are always frustrated about the weight and price of traditional French copper cookware, this FCS Tri-Ply Line of Copper Cookware will be perfect for you!
