Special thanks to Marc (Red) Bloom of Pennsylvania for this idea, and for his patience and support while we figured out how to create a useable item that didn't fracture with direct heat.  These pieces are made out of thermogenic clay and can thus withstand the stresses of rapid heating and cooling.

NOTE: Pots can be made larger or smaller to fit your specific needs. Just e-mail us with your request at: info@venetiancat.com

In Italy until recently, metal smiths/tinkerers would go door to door offering their services to homeowners.  Wire netting was applied only to a cook's most valuable pots, as the process was time-consuming and costly.  This netting served not only to heat food faster since metal conducts heat, but also to diffuse heat, thus greatly extending the life of the pot.

  Dino Colamartino does the wire netting in house for each piece and uses 2.5 mm copper wire for maximum conductivity.

Copper Wire NETTING is available for ALL POTS, please add $45.00
