Here are Cuz's words on the shocking trauma of what was once a beautiful copper pan:
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A BUSBOY FORGETS ABOUT SOMETHING HE WAS COOKING IN THE WOOD PIZZA OVEN 24 HOURS LATER.
What he was cooking we'll never know. it was a copper pan. Its cooking days are over and should be replaced.
What would you like to cook with the new Staub pan?
Everything. Anything that works.
