Everyone is always asking me where to buy copper pots in Paris. And while internet shopping and the fallen dollar mean that buying copper cookware in Paris is not the bargain it once was, the act of buying copper pots is still a cherished errand for foodies on vacation who want to bring back a souvenir that will last a lifetime (and beyond).
You can find copper pots in department stores, second-hand shops and brocantes. But for brand new copper cookware, your first stop should be E. Dehillerin. A famous family-owned Paris cookware shop that has been around since 1820, E. Dehillerin is hardly a secret. But if you've never been, it's worth a trip for copper pots and other quality cooking equipment, or just a window shop. And if you're not planning to be in Paris anytime soon, you can order online via their website.
