The Soy YST-Class Saucepans -100% handmade- are, if not anything, the pride of the Turkish Coppersmithing Craftsmanship, and a must in every Chef's kitchen.
They are the ideal tool for making sauces and also sautéing your dishes, while also excelling at medium frying or making rice. They will easily last for a few lifetimes, if taken good care of.
They are the best Saucepans in the World, as we know it. Their solid copper mass and silver lining are perfect heat conductors that will give you an ultimate control on your cooking.
They are as good for the professional as well as the enthusiast.
All work is entirely done by hand and hammer cold-forging. No press or even spinning is involved.
The current Soy Handles are of our own patented alloy of 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 5-8 rivets each made of Solid White Copper and are extremely sturdy, yet easily removable by us if maintenance is needed.
The alloy of bronze we use (the Soyactite) is developed in-house in 2012, and is highly unlike our Western-European counterparts, who mostly use a very conductive alloy of brass or aluminum bronze, ours remains a very hard and refractory alloy, that has 5 x the performance of cast iron.
Also owing to its patented trident design, the handle heats up pretty slowly, even slower than cast-iron equipped French or Belgian pans. Under industrial fire, it takes 5 to 6 times to heat up until uncomfortably hot when compared side by side with a French competitor product of the same bulk.
The YST12-16-20 come equipped with a single long handle, while the larger YST24 are equipped with two handles, one long and one short, at each edge (see pictures).
Each professional item we craft also comes with a laser or hand engraved 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.
