Tinning

The tinning is performed taking care at first the interior of the container, with the total cleaning of the surface, even with the use of acids; In fact, any impurities present do not allow the pond to adhere to the surface of the pan. It then proceeds to flow the pond, previously melted in the container and heating time to time the various parts of the pan, to keep the tin in the liquid state. The pond must be in a pure state. The ancient custom of adding a small amount of lead, proved to be extremely harmful to health, and it is to be excluded in any way. It was added to obtain a lead tinning smoother and more pleasing to the eye initially, and also because this alloy adheres more readily to copper, while the tin on pure state presents greater difficulties. With use over time and with the cleaning result from the use, slowly the tin layer consumes itself. It will then appear as copper, initially in the bottom of the pan, and gradually in the hips. The pan may be used until it is consumed entirely in the bottom of the pan, after which it is appropriate to run the new tinning.
