Copper tamara from P-TAL is a step ahead in this direction. The handcrafted hammered body signify the intricate craftsmanship. Along with aesthetics, this is directly affecting your health as food cooked in copper boosts collagen as well as leads to better metabolic rate.

It can be difficult to see the ageing of metal but that is the sign of purity! This product can be washed normally like other utensils. A day in an entire week can be kept for special cleaning incase needed. Pitambari powder, which is easily available in the market, can be applied to the products and rinsed off with water to give them a shiny look. Feel free to use household sour elements like a mixture of tamarind+salt or a mixture of wheat+vinegar/lime+salt, if pitambari is not available.
