About the Copper Cataplana:

Cataplanas are an essential cooking pan made in Portugal ideal for seafood and fish dishes. Intense aromas and flavours are preserved until the cataplana is served and opened. Brought to Portugal by the Moors with North African origins, this versatile copper pan allows it’s contents to retain moisture. This is a practical cooking technique that suits seafood, fish & chicken in particular as these foods are prone to over-cooking as well as losing moisture when cooked on the stove or in the oven. The cataplana can ensure that dishes maintain excellent flavour. In addition to this, the cataplana much like the chinese wok can provide a healthy cooking alternative to traditional methods of pan frying. We recommend using stock or wine variations to complement any liquid base placed in the cataplana prior to sealing.

The traditional copper hammered cataplana with the flat bottom can also be used by new electric stoves. For induction stoves, there is a diffuser plate insert that can be used to for cataplana cooking. Please contact us for more information on using cataplanas with induction stoves.

The cataplana has been receiving global attention from world renowned chefs. We sell the traditional Copper Hammered cataplanas and Stainless Steel Cataplanas both with flat bottomed bases. Iron stand with candle supports are available for resting cataplanas when served at the table. Iron stands are available to match your cataplana size.
