The Soy BBT-Class fish poachers are best fish kettles possible and available in the whole World, period.
The product is ENTIRELY cold-forged by hand from a 2mm solid copper sheet, and has no weldings or dead-corners, unlike its French, Italian or Belgian counterparts.
NO machines are involved in the process.
Because the product seamless and possesses no welding or brazing whatsoever, it will NEVER leak, even after 100+ years of reckless and heavy-duty use.
They are quite heavy though, weighing 1.1kg for the BBT25, 4.5 kgs for the BBT40 and more than 6 kgs for the BBT50.
We also have in our catalog an Extra-Large Full-Professional BBT60 for High-End Restaurants, please inquire if interested.
It is tin lined by hand, but since the size and bulk of the product the tin coating can last a lifetime, if properly taken care of.
It takes our craftsmen 3 full working days to form each kettle, regardless of the size.
We try to keep always 1 or 2 fish kettles from each size in stock, so the item might be available for immediate shipping.
A removable perforated tray hand forged from 1.5mm solid copper comes with the poacher.
Each professional item we craft also comes with a hand stamped serial number, we will know, even in the far future when the product was crafted, and to whom it was sold, as we follow every single product on our corporate software.
The current Soy Handles are of our own patented Sand-Cast Solid Bronze, painstakingly filed by hand by our artisans that come from Jeweler backgrounds, and will basically last a lifetime.
They are mounted on the main body with 6 rivets each made of Solid White Copper and are extremely sturdy, but easily removable by us if maintenance is needed.
The alloy of bronze we use (the Soyactite) was developed in-house in 2012, is highly unlike our Western-European counterparts, who mostly use a very conductive alloy of brass or aluminium bronze whereas ours remains a very hard and refractory alloy, that has 5 x the performance of cast iron.
The product has a lifetime "Heritage" warranty and yearly free routine retinning / polishing as long as you register it in our system on www.soy.com.tr
Last but not least, a 15 micron 998 carat Silver Plating is also available instead of the Tin-Lining. The price difference will vary according to the weekly Silver market price, so again, please inquire if interested.
**OPTIONAL ON SHIPPING** The product may be shipped inside a special custom-made export-class plywood crate and will receive a tracking number for you to follow, like all our products. DO NOT throw the box and your invoice away, as it will be easier to ship the product for the scheduled maintenance, when (and IF) needed.
