The year 1830 in France was a year of social upheaval; a constitutional monarchy was created after days of civil unrest, street riots, and violent protests. Seemingly half a world away in the same year, in a very different setting – in a Normandy village called Villedieu-les-Poêles – Mr Ernest Mauviel created the Mauviel manufacturing company.
Villedieu-les-Poêles was known as “the city of copper”, and would prove to be the birth place
of one of the most elite cookware empires that professional chefs ever encountered. Since its early years, Mauviel has had one foot in the professional market, and the other within the commercial market, with their elegant designs and unrivalled quality ensuring their long and proud history.
Mauviel’s M'héritage collection is the perfect embodiment of many things: history, professionalism, beauty, and superior craftsmanship. This elegant cookware collection shimmers in a gorgeous combination of copper and stainless steel, which ensures fast heating and even heat once the desired temperature has been reached, for the ultimate in cooking control. Immensely durable, M'héritage is absolutely stunning high-end cookware that will stand the test of time.
Mauviel – simply magnifique!

- Recommended for use with wooden or plastic utensils.
- Clean after each use to maintain a polished look.
- Hand wash only, and polish when desired.
- Copper cookware requires a little more TLC than other types of cookware. Copper will darken and tarnish with use and age, so to maintain its warm glow, you can polish M'héritage with special copper cleaner.
- Also note that acidic foods will also tarnish your M'héritage cookware.
- The handles of M'héritage are made from solid bronze, and will become very hot when placed in the oven. Make sure you use an oven mitt when handling it!
