COPPER HISTORY AND FEATURES:
Mankind refined copper mine, which he found thousands of years ago, shaped it by hammering it, and made it into copper goods and works of art with the skilled hands of master craftsmen.
Copper is a precious metal that can be recycled and reused without losing its feature, and as time increases with its workmanship and artistic value, it protects itself against rust, rotting and burning, and oxidation occurring on it can be cleaned and regain its brightness if desired.
Robust, soft and workable, copper provides the best cooking performance by regulating heat dissipation.
It is the metal that has the best thermal conductivity among the metals used in the production of copper pots and cooking products. (392w / m k). Thanks to these features, a homogeneous cooking process is provided in copper containers without losing the flavors and nutritional qualities of the dishes.
The use of copper by humans began in ancient times. People used copper in their daily life in ornaments, weapons and handicrafts, in making kitchen materials, and the need for copper increased with civilization.
Our spaces that have been living with us for centuries with unique motifs; Copper, which beautifies our tables with its usefulness and taste, and which has an unmatched eye-catching with its brightness and liveliness, comes to life again with the hand and eye of our masters of Kahramanmaraş.
In the production using high quality copper plate and tin, copper cooking group, kitchenware and ornaments oriented production is made.
These products, produced with old methods and decorated with the art of experienced masters, make our products unique in their field.
Maximum quality and durability are provided in our designs and applications.
In the manufacturing process, traditional and old Turkish techniques are used, products are prepared by methods such as brass at the
joints, plastering in shaping, press or hammer, and ultimately handcrafted tinning.
Handles and handles are manufactured with cast brass, wood or bakelite.
Usually copper products contain a tin coating, which is a hygienic, inert, tasteless and odorless material that does not react with food.
Tin coating can be reused on a worn, damaged and thinned product.
BENEFITS OF COPPER PRODUCTS FOR HEALTH:
The water kept in copper never deteriorates and preserves its freshness.
Copper is known as oligodynamic. In this way, it has the ability to kill bacteria. Especially e. coli and p. It is very effective against bacteria that are quite common called aureus and cause various diseases in humans.
Because of the above feature, copper also sterilizes water. Even copper containers are used to sterilize water in countries where sanitation systems are not developed.
Our brains perform their duties with nerve carriers that transmit data. These conductors are covered with a substance called myelin, which accelerates the flow of neurons in the brain. Copper helps speed up these flows, speeding up data exchange in our brains and enabling us to think effectively.
Lack of copper level in the body prevents the thyroid glands from working regularly, but copper has important minerals that the thyroid gland needs to perform its functions.
When drinking water from copper cups, the possible mineral deficiency in the body is eliminated considerably and the functions of the gland become regular.
Copper containers have a positive charge of electricity to water, and this positive electricity allows the body to be balanced nervously.

Cleaning copper with ash is a big mistake known about copper. The ash gets the gray on the tin, makes it shiny but also thinens the tin layer on the copper, that is, it corrodes the tin and shortens the life of the tin layer. The visible lines are formed as a result of tin work made by hand workmanship and are not a manufacturing error.
The visible lines are formed as a result of tin work made by hand workmanship and are not a manufacturing error.
It is normal for the copper products to darken, and this event occurs as a result of the reaction (corrosion) of the copper, which is covered with carbonate, with oxygen over time, causes oxidation on copper and causes the product to become tarnished and darkened.
Copper products darken when it enters heat.
Finger stains are normal in copper products.
Since copper production is not fabricated and hand made, there may be easy splashes on the products and the tin on the product will not be smooth.

COPPER POLISHING METHODS AGAINST DECISION AND TRACES
Method 1 Copper Polishing Powders: For this, copper polishing powders, which we can easily find in supermarkets today, are one of the most functional methods. We need to apply these powders to the surface of our copper with the help of a soft cloth. It is important that we pay attention to wipe the copper without scratching it.
Method 2 Vinegar: It is possible to polish our copper with the materials in our houses without using any external dust. In this case, there are a few different methods we can apply. What we need in the vinegar method is first a damp cloth and then the company we will apply. Here, after wiping our copper ware with a slightly damp cloth, it is recommended to wipe with a cloth that we dipped in vinegar in the same way. As a result of this process, our copper will regain its brightness on the first day.
3. Method Lemon: One of the other practical methods that we will apply with the items in our homes is the lemon method. Here we need a lemon and a little salt. In practice, we need to wipe our copper by dipping the lemon that we cut in half. For a permanent and effective solution, it is recommended to wipe our copper by rubbing in this way for at least 5 minutes.
4. Method Ketchup: There is another method that we see used today. That's the ketchup method. Here, it will be enough to wait ten minutes and wipe it after pouring ketchup on our copperware. As in this ketchup example, beer is also a good oxide solvent due to its structure. In this case, you need to wipe the copper on which you pour beer for a while and then wipe it dry with the help of a soft cloth, taking care not to scratch it.
