Feb'14 Just got the copper — totally gorgeous. Thanks again!
- Stephen, New York
Feb'14 I must say I am shocked at the results of your restoration on this sauté pan. While I expected the tin lining to look new, I was not expecting the exterior
to look new. I expected a good cleaning but not this. There were so many spots and discoloration on the pan and you got rid of all of them. I just can't believe how it. Would love to learn how to do this. No wonder people rave about your work. Only wished I had more pans to send you.
- Robert, NC
Feb'14 The pot arrived, and it's wonderful, looks gorgeous, and we are delighted. I'll sing your praises to everyone I can. Thanks again,

Oct '13 The pots arrived yesterday and I can't tell you how thrilled I was to see what you had done to refurbish them.

- Richard, PA
Apr.'13 Thank you for your excellent work bringing back my vintage Duparquet sauce pan.
The tinning is top notch, but I especially appreciate how you straightened out the rim and polished up the surfaces without sacrificing any of the character that the piece garnered over the last 100+ years. You displayed a remarkable sensitivity for a vintage piece that will still outlive us all before all is said and done.
I have several modern pieces, but this pan tops them all in its unique beauty, history and the memories it invokes of my Mom and her kitchen.
With Gratitude and Best Regards,
- Steve, FL
Apr.'13 Thank you so much for such a beautiful job on my copper pots. What a treat to open the box and see them have another life! I'll let everyone I know who to call when they need retinning.
- Sue, GA
Apr.'13 I just wanted to take time to say A Big THANK YOU!! I was so pleased with your work on my pan and tea kettle. My mom was just astounded at the results of her tea kettle. She couldn't believe you made it look better than brand new! That was purchased to sit on our cooktop in our newly remodeled kitchen and it looks absolutely fabulous! I had already sent you a number of pots and pans and was extremely pleased as well!
Thank you so much! You can bet that if I purchase any more copper, you will be the person I send it to! Thanks again!
- Cheer, NV
Apr.'13 Jim, Y’all are miracle workers! Your work is absolutely beautiful.....Thank you so much,
- Chris, GA
Mar.'13 Received my pans in the mail today and had to write and thank you for a great job. I cannot believe how fantastic they look after thirty years of use, even the rivets and handles are polished like new and the interiors are ready for another thirty years of use! I would recommend your work to anyone who would like to restore their copper cookware.
- Blaine, MN
Mar.'13 They came today. You did a wonderful job, they are beautiful. Much better than the last time I had them done. Thank you, you will be recommended to all my friends!
- Gretchen, IL
Mar.'13 Jim, what a superb restoration you've accomplished. Our pots look just like the day we bought them in Paris 35 years ago. Thanks for the speedy turn-around. We will certainly share the East Coast Tinning story with others.
- Jim & Boo, NC
Feb.'13 The postman delivered my rejuvenated copper saute pan just a few minutes ago, and I'm writing to thank you. You've certainly restored her to a level of glory that's most likely beyond her remembering. I can only imagine that the other pots on my hanging rack won't get a minute's sleep tonight....Thanks again for your speedy restoration work --
- Susan, CA
Feb.'13 Hi Jim, My pans arrived safely yesterday and I am very pleased with the results! They look brand new! Thanks, and I will surely recommend you to anyone that I know that needs your services! Thanks!

- Debra, California
Dec.'12 I cannot thank you enough for the absolutely stunning work you did on the copper pots I sent to you for re-tinning. They look simply gorgeous and I am completely satisfied with the results. Your work is superb! (And thanks, too, for returning them to me by 12/24, allowing me to use them on 12/25 amid hearty ooohs and aaahs from my guests, which was quite fun and satisfying as well!)
Wishing you a Happy New Year and looking forward to sending more work your way soon.
- Stella, NYC
Dec.'12 The saute pan arrived yesterday just in time for me to wrap it and surprise my husband this morning. Thank you so very much for such great service. More than that, however, we are very pleased and grateful for your masterful tinning and restoration.
- Caroline, NY
Dec.'12 O.M.G.! I received my two pans back yesterday. I must tell you I am stunned! They look absolutely beautiful. I think your work is simply fabulous AND your customer service.
How proud you must be of what you do! I only wish I had taken ‘before’ photos to show and compare.
Thank you and have a happy holiday,
- Pat, NY
Dec.'12 I couldn't be happier with how your work turned out. My ancient copper pot has never looked better. You made it gleam like new. I was expecting retinning of the cooking surface; I had no idea you'd shine it up so beautifully on the outside too. It hasn't looked this good since it was manufactured a half-century or more ago. I'm so very happy I found you online.
Thank you for refreshing a sauce pan I trust and love and which my best friend (another enthusiastic cook) covets dearly. I shall recommend your work whenever I have the opportunity.
- Dave, Boston
Dec.'12 Nice work! Wow! I just got the pan back! It is so beautiful I'm going to have to polish the other three that it's hanging with now!!
- Thomas, PA

- Jamie, Maine
Nov.'12 Hi Jim, just a quick note to say those 2 sauce pans you worked on turned out amazing. I really appreciate you straightening out the 19th century one. I'm putting it back into service, and its interesting to think about how many meals its made over the years.....
- Rob, NC
Nov.'12 Great job again Jim...
- Sam, NY
Nov.'12 I received my pot I couldn't believe how beautiful it was. I have since gotten many compliments on it.Thank you, for doing such an amazing job.
- Jenna, NY
Nov.'12 Just got my pot back. This, as you saw, is a ruffoni and not cheap. I've had it for about 10 years and I use it so much it just stays on the stovetop. You did such a great job it looks better than when I got it! The original tin was soft and ugly... You did a beautiful job. Thanks so much.
- Eleanor, Virginia
Nov.'12 The bundt pan looks SPECTACULAR!!! Now I'm afraid to bake in it for fear of losing that just polished shine. I have some other pans I will be sending your way. Thank you so much -
Oct.'12 Jim, I just received the Pan's you re-tined and I must say OUTSTANDING WORK, I have a friend who said she needed this type of work done, I'll show her your work and give her one of your cards. I hope to be able to add more customers toward your business....
- Lewis, MA
Sep.'12 Good Afternoon, Jim - I just wanted to let you know that the three pieces you worked on for me arrived today. They look fabulous! They are so much better than I imagined that could be. Thank you. You are a magician!
I will be in touch when I need additional work from you. And, if I run across anyone who could use your services, I will delightedly tell them about you and my very positive experiences.
- Shelley, OH
Sep.'12 Jim - So many food folks are just floored with the quality of my "new" pan. Also thanks for impressing my students with he amount of care you put into your craft they talked about you in acting class for days afterwards. Question- I have another pan I'll need to mail to you....
- David, Miami, FL
Sep.'12 Just wanted to let you know that I received my brass buckets in the mail over the weekend. They are absolutely beautiful, and I thank you for your craftsmanship!
Sep.'12 Wanted to let you know that "MOAP" arrived in good condition. You did an excellent job on it and I could not be more satisfied. We used it for the big fish fry on the camping trip and it worked great. All my buds are impressed with it.
- Bill, NC
Sep.'12 Our saucepan has arrived. WOW! I was going to say it's as good as new, but, I think it's better than new. (35 years ago). Another is on the way....
- Joseph, MA
Sep.'12 Jim, just wanted you to know the copper arrived and is beautiful! Can't wait to start cooking with it again. Thanks so much,
- Leslie, NH
Sep.'12 Hi Jim, Thank you very much for the spectacular results. I now have to renovate my kitchen so it can live up to my copper pots. I will be sending you the other three in the set for the same treatment, in a few months. I am so glad I found you--hooray for the internet!
- Lisa, NY
Sep.'12 Hi Jim -- Thank you for the beautiful job on my saucepans. They just glow, they are so beautiful, and as I actually use them, I remembered what a joy they are to cook with. Thank you!
- Chambliss, ME

Aug.'12 I would like to thank you for the phenomenal job you did on our copper pot. It is beautiful beyond words! My husband and I look forward to using the pot often and with great pleasure.
- Burd, MA
Jul.'12 Dear Jim, I just got my pans and can't tell you how thrilled I was with the entire process! Before retiring, I used to tell my staff that our goal was to try and meet our customers' expectations, and perhaps occasionally exceed them. You have far exceeded my expectations in every aspect of the transaction. We had this done before and the tinning was not nearly as well done as yours, nor the copper as shining. I have never seen a box as carefully packed as yours.
You have my gratitude for being so good at what you do! Warm regards,
- Paul, NC
Jul.'12 Our sauce pan arrived via USPS this morning and it looks fabulous! The tinning is superb and I didn't know that the pan could look so good (the polishing was masterful). I am very pleased and will send the larger frying pan your way as soon as I can find a box big enough to pack it. Many thanks!
- Dan, Alexandria VA
Jul.'12 Hey Jim, I received my copper cookware. It's freakin' amazing! Brass is polished bright, copper has a mirror shine, and the tin has a nice consistent coat. I'll definitely use your services again.
- Lydell, San Diego
Jul.'12 I can't believe it's the same pan...absolutely beautiful. I'll have to re-configure wall-hanging space to show it off. Thanks a million...
- Betsy, CA
Jul.'12 Thank you so much for restoring my Legry covered saucepan. It is just beautiful. You are a wonder!
- Jane, WI
Jul.'12 I've just opened my newly retinned copper pan and it is GORGEOUS!!! Thank you!
- Jon, ME
Jun.'12 Received our beloved saute and.....and I can't believe you sent us the same pan! Wow.
Our great workhorse looks like a pristine new pan---after 20+ years of hard service, a poor retinning job, and finally damage at the hands of well-meaning friends. A wedding gift from a dear friend, it has special significance beyond its utility, so its prior condition was heartbreaking.
Stunning work.... The glowing reviews were spot on. Please keep up the fine craftsmanship. Thank you,
- Nancy, NE
Jun. '12 Dear JIM et al - We are stunned and delighted with the quality of your work on our pots. Thank you so much for such excellent craft. The best way we can say thank you is to show off what you have done to our friends and colleagues. May your enterprise continue to thrive!
- Todd... Boston, MA
May '12 Jim - The pan is stunning. I couldn't be happier with the quality of your work and the manner in which you tend to these pots. Your work reveals very, very clearly your love for the craft, the pots themselves, and the tradition from which they have come. I am recommending you to everyone I know who has pots like these. Thank you.
- Scott, VT

- Betsy, CA
Mar.'12 I just got my pots back and am absolutely blown away! Let me tell you those pots have been my primary cookware for over 25 years. They have been heavily used and abused sliding back and forth over a commercial stove with no thought to their well being, except that they cook well. My pots look as good as when I selected them off the shelf 25 years ago. What a wonderful job in recreating a first cooking love all over again…
- Jamie, RI
Mar.'12 I got the NEW pan Saturday--looks great thank you. I will surely recommend your retimming service to others.
- Chet, VA
Mar.'12 I just received my copper pan this morning. The pan and lid is just BEAUTIFUL!!! I have several I need to have retinned and polished, but due to money restraints I’ll have to do them one per month. I can’t wait to get the whole set refinished. Again, I can’t believe the beauty!!!!! Thank you!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!!
- Penny, OH
Mar.'12 I just received my re-tinned pot and to say you did an amazing job would be an understatement.
It is just beautiful, even the copper handles are show stoppers! Thank you so much, your workmanship is nothing short of incredible. Now if only my cooking was worthy of my pot!
- Susan, CT
Mar.12 Greetings! I received my risotto pan that you refined the other day, and it is GORGEOUS! Thank you so much. It's really like new. I am so pleased with the restoration. I will try to take better care of it now!

- jasmin, NC
Feb. '12 Very pleased with the retinning and polishing of two French copper pots (large saute pan and a sauce pan) which were given to us as wedding presents in 1984. We had them retinned once or twice over the years and East Coast Tinning did the best job by far. Worth packing up the items and shipping them to Rhode Island. Attentive and professional service.
- Linda, Chicago, IL
Feb. '12 We received the pan yesterday. It looks amazing, thank you for the excellent service!
- Louis, NY
Feb. '12 It is a great day in Maple Grove with the delivery of my "new" retinned copper pots. They look beautiful. Can't wait to cook something delicious in them. Many thanks for your wonderful work.

Feb.'12 Wow - it is gorgeous - almost too good to use. At least I know where to get [my copper pans] redone. Thanks for a great job.
- Victoria, MD
Feb. '12 Jim, I got the shipment today and the pots are splendid. They are probably nicer
looking than when they were new. Thanks for your professional service.
- Gary, CT
Jan.'12 Thank you. I am sure the stock-pot job will be first-class in every respect....
This is because today I received the large sauté pan and cover. Beyond looking like new, I note the apparent heavy application of tin to the lining and neat margins...
You are an old-school craftsman. Thank you again for such good work, promptly done.
- Alan, NY
Jan.'12 WOW!!!! you are now on my hit parade. You all did a beautiful job!!! Thanks for your expertise and good work. Are you sure you don't want to take a crack at changing our other copper pans from aluminum lining to tin?
- Ed, VA
Jan.'12 Wow!! I don't know whether we can still use anything that beautiful. It exceeds our expectations.
Thank you -
- Michael, CT
Jan.'12 Just picked up my re-tinned pot yesterday. Excellent job and great service - am very impressed and satisfied with the result. Will probably be sending you another pot in the next few weeks.
- Don, MA
Jan.'12 Great! Fabulous!! You're a genius!!! Our copper pots have never looked better!!!! We'll certainly use you for all our retinning needs, and will recommend you to our friends.

Jan. '12 Thanks for the nice job. I gave my wife her old pans for Christmas. They had been sitting around for years unused and unusable. When she opened the box she had a perplexed look on her face and then she said "are these mine?".....
- Ken, FL
Dec.'11 Dear Jim, The package [of copper pans] arrived on Saturday, and I just unpacked it this morning. Everything is a triumph! Just beautifully done - Thank you so much.
- Shelley, NY
Dec.'11 thanks, another wonderful job... and the best part, all the old pots were given to me for free, and now they all must be worth a thousand dollars or more, ... double thanks to the universe, gift of the pots and give of your talent!
cheers, will look for more now in garage sales...
- Tricia, CA
Nov.'11 The box was delivered yesterday. Thanks for tinning and polishing the copper. They look great! Even better, great to use. You do great work and I am happy to have found you. My wife and I enjoy cooking with copper again.

Nov.'11 Hi, I wanted to thank you for the great job retinning and polishing my three pans. I had purchased two of them used and was concerned their previous rough treatment would limit how much you could do but all three look new. The new tin looks great and the cleaning and polishing could not have been better. Thanks again. Cheers -
- Tom, MD
Nov.'11 Got the pan -- it's FABULOUS!!! Thank you, thank you for saving the life of my husband's favorite copper pan! You are our go-to guy from now on.
- Patricia, IN
Oct.'11 Beyond an Endorsement -- I just received a check in the mail for $40, I obviously over paid, as I calculated the measurements, I receive an amazing service and love my repairs -- but more than that, I found a company with integrity, and honesty beyond what others would have turned a blind eye to... thank you.....(I have more orders for you too)
- Tricia, CA
Oct.'11 I just returned from a trip and see my pot...beautiful job...thank you so much.

Oct.'11 Excellent job on the pan. Thanks.
- John, MO
Sep.'11 My pot arrived with a banged up box but the pot is A-OK. In fact everyone is drooling at how beautiful it looks and how fast your service was!! Thank you for such a beautiful job. I can hardly wait to cook in it again and continue our 42 year relationship that I had left undone for 10 years while thinking I could not afford and/or find someone to do my retinning, could I trust sending it off to someone? Thank you for your encouragement that you would take care of our treasure.....and you did!!
- Lyndamae, NC
(editor's note: I usually send USPS Parcel Post but this customer wanted us to send with UPS....I'll continue to recommend USPS Parcel Post! Whew!)
Sep.'11 Jim - I have been meaning to write you regarding my copper pots you refurbished. All I can say is THANK YOU THANK YOU. I had the pots re-tinned before and was not please with the work. I can truly say - I am sending you all my pots in the future. Keep up the wonderful work. Your craftsmenship is excellent. Thank you again.

- Greg, NY
Aug'11 Just received my oval baker. OMG!!!!! it's gorgeous. you did an amazing job of making it new again.

It was more than I dreamed. again, get to the beach and drink a beer before summer leaves...
- Jill, CO

- Fronia, VT
Aug'11 It arrived last night! Beautiful job, thank you!
- Nikki, TX
Aug.11 Thanks much. You run a hell of a good outfit there...
- Edward, MA
Jul'11 Jim, we did receive the pan and I have to say that all of those comments on your website were wrong, the job you did was MUCH better than what they described!! We're very impressed!! The pan was one that my wife got a few years ago, used from a restaurant supply and she loves the pan, unfortunately her tenant used it and put a gouge in it; she was heartbroken and said throw it out, there's nothing that can be done. Fortunately I did not listen and I checked on Google and found you folks. Needless to say she was quite surprised when it came back looking factory new!
- Mike, MA
Jul'11 Hi Jim. Just wanted to say thank you for the great job you did on polishing and retinning my lidded pot. My husband thinks your work is marvelous!
- Shelly, NY
Jul'11 The pot just arrived. Wow! What a transition! It's just stunning. You do beautiful work and the results are much better than I could have ever imagined. I really appreciate all the effort you put into this.
- Stan, FL
Jun '11 Jim, It's beautiful! Just like the day we bought it at Dehillerin! We can't quite believe it & immediately put a chickpea & ditalini soup in it for lunch. Thanks so much. Expect a saute pan soon. Thanks again!
- David , NH
May '11 Just a quick note to let you know that the pan arrived this afternoon--and to add my two cents to your growing list of satisfied customers. Beautiful job--adding the initials turned it from a pan to an heirloom. It's always nice to expect good work and then to get it! Many thanks,
- Noah, IL
May '11 My copper "babies" arrived home safe and sound and look great; can't wait to put them to work. Thanks so much for your good work and professional approach to the whole process.
- Bonnie, FL
Apr. '11 Hi Jim, I just want to say thanks again. You do really great work. I'll send you some more soon. Let me know if you're planning a trip up here. I'll make sure I save a table for you.
- Jason Bond
Apr, '11 Hi Jim: My two vintage copper pans arrived today. Quality of work was excellent. I’m sure they look exactly the same way as they first did when they arrived in the hands of a French chef in Paris many years ago. Best Regards -
- Nicholas, CA
Apr. ''11 Gentlemen, when I opened the return box with my recently relined copper pot I thought it was a brand new pot, it exactly like the pot when I originally purchased it, some thirty years ago. You do a great job, thanks so much.
- Bruce, FL
Mar. '11 To Whom It May Concern:
I used your company in September 2010 to retin some pots and at the same time, I sent additional pots to another company in NY. I got my pots retinned from your company with a very quick turn around and EXCELLENT product plus great customer service! My pots looked brand new and the price was really good. THANK YOU!
It is now MARCH 2011 and I still have yet to receive my pots from the other company. I wish I had sent all my pots to your company! Thanks for the great service. I will be using you in the future from now on! Thanks again.
- Lou, AL
Mar. '11 When I picked up the now once again beautiful sauté pan from you this morning, I failed to mention the equally professional job of imprinting my initials on the side of the pot. They are first rate and the pan now sits prominently (and proudly), once again, on my stove. There will be others from among my collection dating from the days I lived in Paris (1965-68) and shopped regularly at Dehillerin. I wish to thank you again for your excellent work. With appreciation -
- Charles, RI
Mar. '11 Wonderful results! A brief message to say thanks for the wonderful job on our two pots! Marvelous! The box that went back and forth between us will be saved and used again several times before we’ve had all our needs fulfilled. So be on the alert....
- Steve, MA
Feb. '11 I received my copper stock pot that you relined and I am extremely pleased with the results. Thank you so much. Sometime in March I hope to get my act together and send a couple of sauce pans to you for relining. Thanks for the great work.
- Terry, ME
Feb. '11 Thank you for the absolutely beautiful work on the retinning! My husband did comment that they looked nice for "display", but I quickly reminded him that they are to cook in. Call us if you ever visit Seattle! Sur la Table at Pike Place Market is a nice destination!
- Louise, WA
Feb.'11 Thanks. Received the pan and it looks great! Showed some of the neighbors and told them it was possible to salvage an old pot or two. They were impressed.
- Monika, CA
Jan. '11 The 3 pans are beautiful!!! I am so pleased. I think the pans have been half way around the world by now! You will be hearing from me again. I will wish you warm weather. It is 66 degrees here today!
- Linda, OR
Jan.'11 Jim: My Copper pans etc. were delivered today. They look great. Thanks for the excellent work.
- Mik'e, CA
Jan.'11 Hi Jim - I just received my pans. My wife says they are too beautiful to cook in, but I'm the cook and they are mine. I had these tinned once before and your work is greatly superior to the previous job. I will follow your tips about heat and searing. Thanks very much.
- Paul, MA
Jan.'11 Just picked up my pan from the post office. Stunned about how attractive it looks. Better, indeed, than when we first got it several years ago. I put it on the stove and waited for my wife to come into the kitchen this morning. She was nearly transfixed admiring it. I note with pleasure that you were able to bump out the little dimple in the cover. Just splendid. Thanks for a great job.
- David, IL
Jan. '11 - I just got my pot back and it is beautiful. Service was great, 2 weeks. my last experience with a competitor in ny was dismal, wore off in less than a year and took 4 months. Thank you.
- Tom, VA
Jan. '11 Just got the pots a few days ago, and have been cooking with them ever since. They're gorgeous and they cook great -- I'm so glad I had them done...
Thanks again, really, they look great.
- Paul, IN
Jan. '11 - Jim, Once again you did an amazing job of restoring our favorite cooking vessel!! And now the question is "what do you recommend we use to keep it looking so good"? (inside? outside?) --apart from not burning anything in it. Thanks from a very happy customer!
- Ken, NY
Jan. '11 I just want to thank you for the great job of retinning you did on our three smaller pots--much appreciated and ecstatically received! I have three more, larger ones I will send to you as soon as our fiscal well fills up again...
- Conrad, MA
Jan. '11 Got the pot back and it is awesome. I've got a metalsmith I work with here in NY that said that he is looking for someone like you. I'll give him your contact info so he can pass it on to his customers. When I get time, I'll pack up a 7 piece set of smaller pots and send them in. Many thanks. Always a pleasure to deal with a real craftsman.
- Gus, NY

- Jack, FL
Nov 10. Thanks so much for doing such a fantastic job. We use this little pan everyday now.
- Megan, WA
Nov 10. Jim, we received our pots today. They are so beautiful. Thank you so much for your very professional service. We picked these pots up at a flea market. This the second batch you have done for us and each time we are so excited to get the pots. We are curious to know what you can tell us about the pots we just got back. We sent three pots, two of which are stamped "Gaillard Paris".
- Deborah, PA
Oct 10. Wow! Just picked up the pan. What an incredible job! I am so impressed. The auction house from whom I purchased it were shocked that I actually wanted to use it. I hope to add another 100 years! Thank you so very much.
- William, CA
Oct 10. WOW!! I can't believe it is the same pan. I swear to God I just looked at it for two days. It never cooked this well. It's virtually non-stick, too. It is so nice to work with talented people that take pride in their craftsmanship: kudos all around! Thanks, folks, for a job well done!
- Duff, Puerto Rico
Oct 10. Thank you for a beautiful job of retinning our pots and pans!!
- Viola, NJ
Sep 10. Jim - All we can say is "Wow". East Coast did an incredible job restoring the copper pots and pans. Thanks for your good work.
- Chris, MA
Aug 10. Jim - My pans just arrived today (one day after being shipped!!) and they are beautiful. Thank you so much. I'm so pleased with how well you were able to restore both pieces. The sauce pan was in such bad shape that my fiancee almost suggested we give it up for scrap; something I could not do as it belonged to my late aunt, and is one of the few things I have of hers. I can't believe the magic you performed on this, admittedly medium quality, pan that means so much to me. You clearly took as much care and time with this little pan as you do with the best quality cookware you have for sale. Thank you, thank you, thank you so very much. Now have I have to cook something, ANYTHING! Just to try them out! Sincerely and with ultimate gratitude -
- Astrid, MA
Aug 10. Wow, you all breathed new life into our favorite cooking vessel! I’m almost afraid to use it but when it turns cool outside…really who can resist goat cheese polenta or crème brulee…!!! Thank you all for a superb job!!
Aug 10. Received the pots. They look great!
- Irv, IN
Aug.10 I want to say I received my cookware yesterday and they were fantastic. They were like new and looked unbelievable. The tin is very thick and will last a long time. They are so perfect and the copper is so shiny I hesitate to use them. Kidding... Very speedy turn-a-round and great communications. Thanks so much for providing such a great job and service. Could not be more satisfied!
- Marc, KS
Aug.10 Just received the pan. It's great--thank you very much. Potatoes Dauphinois tonight!
- Karleen, Canada
Jun.10 Awesome job. Thank You. My biggest challenge is reminding my lady friend to not use metal objects. I am not crazy but these pans are so good.
- Dan, WI
Jun.10 I just returned from Paris and found the pots you shined up and tinned. They are FABULOUS. Understand these have been in our family for years, maybe more than 150 years! I plan on sending up one more batch of pots. I love your work!
- David, PA
May.10 Wow! I picked up my pots this morning and they are gorgeous! Thank you so very much for "breathing new life" into my pots and pans. They are now ready for another round of marvelous dishes which I will enjoy creating thanks to you! I will recommend your retinning service highly to those in my circle who are in need. Thank you again!
- Keith, GA
Apr.10 Jim - My pans arrived two days ago. Thank you for such a speedy delivery. I believe my heart was racing as I unpacked the box. I admit I knew nothing about your business and , therefore, didn't know where I was sending my pans off to but, the positive comments from many of your customers on your web site gave me some sense of security. Was I ever stunned when I saw these two pans! Truly, you are a Master at your craft! I want to thank you for giving them renewed life and beauty. There will be no hesitation in the future sending my pans out for retinning. I'll keep your business card on hand since I know I'll contact you again. Most sincerely -
- Diana, CT
Mar.10 Wow….great retinning job. The pot and lids are truly amazing. I have had them retinned in the past but your work is superior, top notch. Also, even though I was not looking for a fast turnaround you delivered on that too. I’ll be back with more retinning work for you in the future.
- Michael, MA
Mar.10 Jim, You have outdone yourself. They are almost too pretty to cook in! But I can't wait. Thank you!
- Holly, CA
Feb.10 Your retinning work is superb! I am so glad I chose to resuscitate my copper pots with you. I was actually thinking of getting a new set of AllClads…but your work has created a much better and more beautiful set of pots for me at my new apartment. I was also wondering if choosing your retinning off the internet would work…and you exceeded my expectations. Keep up the great work!
- Eileen, IL
Feb.10 My pans arrived safely and they look beautiful! Thank you so much for the great work. They were a present to my daughter who coretinning uld not believe they were the same two pans. I left your card with her so that when she needs a retinning she will know where to go!
- Kay, KY
Feb.10 Jim, The pot arrived today. Absolutely gorgeous! I hate to start using it. Thanks!
- Ann, NC
Feb.10 Jim, Pots arrived all safe and absolutely gorgeous. In the 25 years I have these pots I've had them retinned 3x. Yours was absolutely the
best job. (Darn, now I wish I'd have sent in the lids! They didn't need tinning, but they look sad next to your beautiful polish job.)
Thank you for the BEAUTIFUL retinning work!
- Holly, CA
Feb.10 They just arrived -- and look great!
Thanks so much!
- Sarah, NC
Jan.10 I got my stock pot back last night and I could not be happier. As good as it looks and as much as I would like it to remain in the pristine condition you've restored it to - it is already on the stove with a simmering pot of chicken stock working. When more of my items require retinning I will certainly think of you first.
- Tom, CT
Jan.10 I got my old copper saucepan back and its better than new; you did an absolutely fantastic retinning job. I will definitely be sending additional items your way. Thanks again.
- Micahel, NY
Jan.10 Jim they look great, I don't think he'll be able to resist them. You are an artisan sir! Job well done, don't forget to slide in some of your business cards with the pan, I know a few people in need of your retinning services. Talk to you soon.
- Gwyn, CA
Dec.09 Dearest Jim - Forgive me for not writing earlier. I received my fish poacher and it is truly a beautiful retinning job. It looks better than new!! The only problem is that the work was so magnificent that I don’t want to use it. It now looks so beautiful on the shelf. Thank you so much for the amazing work you do and the prompt service. I am clear that - had I sent to the other so-called “famous” re-tinner here, I would be still waiting! Thanks again and best personal regards -
- Tonessa, NY
Dec.09 Thanks for your response. I have gotten the pan and it's beautiful. Thank you so much.
- Claudia, NY
Dec.09 My saucepan and rondeau just came back and look utterly stunning. Thank you for your beautiful and prompt work. We are moving next month but when we get settled, I look forward to sending several more of my copper pots in need of your retinning touch! Have a very happy new year.
- Cathy, GA
Oct. 09 The pan arrived today and it is beautiful. It has never looked so good even when it was brand new. Great job! I used it tonight for dinner and it performed exquisitely. The next pan will be on its way to you tomorrow, so you should see it by week's end. This pan is the one I use the most and is in worse condition than the first; I can't wait to see it anew. Thanks again.
- David, NH
Oct.09 The pots arrived and they are beautiful! We sent 7 more, which is all of them....
- Mary, CA
Sep.09 Wanted to thank you for the beautiful retinning job you did with my stockpot I sent in....
- Arvin, CT
Aug.09 From all the comments I read on your website, I expected my pots to come back nice and reflecting a job well done.... but never like this!
They look so gorgeous, I don't want to use them!!
I tell you, I'm stunned at the artistry with which you've transformed my sauce pans from common and dull pieces to museum treasures.
Have no doubt I'll tell everyone who needs retinning services to contact you, as the quality of your work is superlative. Thanks so much!
- Manny, TX
Aug.09 My soup pot arrived today. It looks beautfiul - just like new! Now I can't wait for the cool autumn weather to arrive so I can make soup :-)

- Ruthann, WA
Jun.09 I've received the most beautiful copper pot that I'm sure didn't look that good when I bought it new! Thank you, it is gorgeous. I will be sending another large pot very soon.
- Sandy, NM

Apr.09 The saucepan you cleaned & repaired for me is spectacular!!! Thanks so much. I will call on you for help anytime my copper needs ministration. Cheers.
- Seth, Canada
Apr.09 Got the pot. Very, very nice retinningwork! Thank you. The mark turned out to be Benham. I contacted <www.oldcopper.org> as you suggested and got the answer. They asked me about my re-tinning vendor and I enthusiastically recommended you by name and sent them the link to your website.
I'm looking to send some others to you.
- Jeff, VA
Mar.09 Thank you. I just got my re-tinned saucepan back and it looks terrific (plus the handle is no longer loose)! I will be sure to send you another pan soon.
- Mike, MD
Mar.09 I want to thank you for the great job on the small pan. It looks great. Are you sure you didn't run out and buy me a new one? Thank you!
- Louis, NH
Feb.09 Got my pot back today, and it looks super. Thanks so much for the fine job!
- Marjorie, VT
Feb.09 I sent you a stock pot with lid on 1/26. Have you finished it yet? When it gets back, if it looks like the last one you fixed, my pride and joy will be maxed!
- Art, SC
Feb.09 The stock pot arrived today in perfect condition. Wow – it looks even better than it did when we bought it! I will tell the stores near me that sell copper pots about you. None of them seemed to know anything about retinning, even though they sell tin lined pans.
- June, CA
Jan.09 Just got my pots back......all I can say is incredible. What a beautiful job you did on these old beauties. I am so happy. I am passing your name to my copper friends as well. I will also be sending the next batch in a week or so.
- Peter, NY
Jan.09 Dear ECT, My pan arrived this snowy Saturday. Its absence made it clear to me just how much I use this fabulous utensil! But what a transformation!!! Thanks so much for your fine workmanship...Happy New Year!
- Eva, NY
Jan.09 We just received out pot and were really impressed with the beauty of the restoration. My wife says I can't cook with it now- just look at it. Thanks! - - Jim, NC

Oct.08 I received my pot today and all I can say is that YOU ROCK! It is absolutely gorgeous and looks better than new. I will pass your web address on to all my foodie friends and send the rest of my pans as I can afford it ;)
- Cheryl, MA
Sep.08 The pot arrived yesterday and it's fabulous! It instantly became my all-time favorite cooking implement. You did a miraculous retinning job. I look forward to sending you more pots in the future...
- David, MA
Sep.08 I was thrilled by the work you did on the copper pans we sent down. I bought them as a ham at copper fair in Paris, sixty years ago. But they never in the time since looked so dazzling!
- Arthur, NYC
Sep.08 ...are you sure that you sent me the correct pot....this can't possibly be the pot and top that I sent you....what a difference....you are truly miracle workers...
- Donna, VA
Sep.08 They arrived and they look terrific. Thanks for a great job.
- Richard, FL
Sep.08 Thank you, for your beautiful work on my little saucepan. I've had it for 14 years and it gets used almost daily. I love my little pan, and I love the beautiful tinning craftsmanship inside. It looks better than new!
- Pat, CA
Jul.08 The pots arrived safely and look terrific! Thanks a bunch!
- Pam, VA
Jul.08 You did a fabulous job with my two bent pots. Domestic harmony is restored. Thank you for the incredibly swift turn around.
- Susan, MA
Jul.08 Thanks, Jim, for your master craftsmanship. I have had pans retinned before and by far this is the best I have experienced.
Since I picked up my big saute and two gratin pans last week, I have not allowed anyone to touch them or put them away. They sit on the kitchen counter glowing with pride and elegance. Tonight I broke in the big saute pan. Of course, the tinning is beautiful, and though it may be my imagination, the pan seemed to cook better. I have not even thought about using the Mutual roasting pan I bought from you. I want to enjoy it a bit more before I break it in.
- Tom, MA
Jul.08 My pots arrived yesterday and I'd like to thank you so much! They look great. I am very appreciative of your work. They really needed help.
- Sue, FL
Jun.08 Just calling to let you know we received our pots today and oh my god our mouths are still hanging open from amazement. You did such a spectacular job and we thank you so much. They look like brand new - just beautiful. I can't get over how different they look. We are very pleased and will be recommending you! Thanks again.
- Linda, NJ
May.08 We received the pots you re-tinned for us. FANTASTIC! Your retinning work is superbly done and the results were well worth the wait. The pots look so good that we're hesitant to use them. We know we'll have plenty of inquiries about who and where; we will gladly provide your name to all those who will certainly admire your work. Thank you for giving us an heirloom to pass along.
- Evelyn, NJ
May.08 Super, Super, Super. “New pans for Old” Thank you for a very professional service and for the great job you did restoring our two pieces of copperware. We look forward to sending you some more of our collection.
- Christopher, MI
May.08 So impressed was I by the work done on my paella pan that I've decided to trust you with my great grandmother's!! It was passed down through the family and now needs a face lift. Treat her gently!
- Vinnie, NY
May.08 Jim- We got our pots today. I just really wanted to thank you because you did an absolutely astounding job on them and we are overwhelming pleased with what you did. I wanted to let you know because so often you hear about the complaints but you don't hear from the happy people. I know how that is because I'm in in retail. Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with everything. Thanks.
- Dan, MA
Apr.08 I just got my copper pot back and am blown away, you did such a fabulous job! Thanks for such a wonderful job and also for taking out the bend. More on the way.
- Irene, NH
Apr.08 I've been remiss in acknowledging, in a timely manner, receipt of the two casseroles and letting you know how delighted I am with their refurbishing. They look so beautiful that all the other copper in the house looks a bit sad... But I look forward to using them, now that the interiors are food safe.
- Simone, MA
Apr.08 Claude and I are so pleased with the work you did on our copper. Thank you for meeting us yesterday. I have 3 more "big rivet" pots for you...
- Cheri, CT
Apr.08 Unbelievable! Looks better than it did new. Thanks.
- Brian, NC

Mar.08 I sent you a pot for re-tinning and it is just beautiful, thank you so much! We wondered if you recommend any particular brand or method for keeping the copper polished. It looks so great we want to keep it that way.
- Gail, NJ
Feb.08 Thanks. Got them. Look spectacular.
It will take me some time before I can bear to cook in them!!!! Will send more....
- Matthew, NY
Feb.08 Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the fabulous job you did on my sauté pan. I keep looking at my others hoping to see some copper showing so I'll have an excuse to send them to you. Thanks.

Feb.08 The teapot arrived yesterday just as you said it would. I could hardly wait to give it to my husband and see his reaction this a.m. He couldn't believe it and was all smiles... You did such a wonderful job, it's beautiful. You truly have a gift, thanks for sharing it.

Feb.08 The pans arrived safely. They look fantastic - and are now ready for the next generation. Thank you.

Feb.08 The paella pan has arrived. It's beautiful! So glad I found you on the web...

Jan.08 Received the re-tinned pans today, and they look great. Can you recommend how the interiors of the pans should be cleaned of burned on food? The original tin was worn off when I used a Scotch Brite pad.
- Steve, NY
(ed. note - simmering with water and dish detergent will loosen cooked-on food enough so that hard scrubbing is not necessary. Try it!)
Jan.08 Thank you for the great service, I will definitely reflect in the feedback...and I have more pans to do.
Jan.08 My pot just arrived today and I am very impressed with your work! I have alot more copper but none of it needs tinning right now. By the way, what to you use to polish the copper? Wow...
Nov. 07 How did you do this? What did you use? The pan that you tinned makes all my other pots pale in comparison! I'll be sending more soon. Thank you.
Oct.07 Just got my pot back in the mail and it looks great. Thank you for your good and timely work! I'll be passing your name along, and sending you more as soon as I can take the time. Again, many thanks.
Sep.07 I just got my pot back from you. Beautiful work! I must have about 30 different pots that need your help. Expect another one next week.
- Tiffany, NJ
Sep. 07 We are very pleased with the sauce pan you just returned to us. Enclosed is a larger pan needing your good work. We have more, but one at a time.
- Roger, PA
Sep.07 It just arrived and it looks like new! You're a miracle worker. I am sending you a hammered copper stock pot today. The tin is not as evenly worn as it was on my last pot but has several questionable spots.
- Elizabeth, MA
Aug.07 Rec'd steamer copper pot yesterday...one word "BEAUTIFUL". Thank you! It now inspires me to cook again. Will ship my old tea kettle to you this week for appraisal. Thank you for all your beautiful work.
- Lynne, PA
Aug.07 I got my pan back yesterday - it was waiting for me at my office when I got there. It looks wonderful. A couple of people in my office had seen the pan before I sent it and they were all amazed at the difference.
I'll be sending you more work!
- Susan, CA
Jul.07 I received the pans you did already--they look spectacular! I am most impressed especially when I compare them to the ones someone else did. Thanks so much for the effort and your fine workmanship. I will happily tout your services if I hear of anyone else with re-tinning needs.
- Mary, MI
Jun.07 Your work on tinning and polishing look great! The only problem is that the pan doesn't sit flat on the stove so I appreciate you flattening the bottom. It is a pleasure doing business with your company because you have integrity and stand behind your workmanship.
- Julia, VA
Jun.07 Wow! That was fast!
- Arnold, IL
May.07 This is the best refurbishing job my pots have ever gotten!! I'm sending you nine more later this week. I'll send a picture of them all hanging in the kitchen - they look incredible! Thank you.
- Richard, VT
May. 07 Thank you ever so much - the pot looks great!!!! Can't believe they were able to do so much!!!

Nov.06 Got the pot - you did a great job and got it here in time. You are my hero. I will be happy to send you your much deserved check. Thank you so very much.
- Linda, MS
Aug.06 Your two week return policy is impressive. Everyone else was telling me two to three months so I could hardly believe it when my pans arrived today. They look great!
- Joyce, CA
Jul.06 Received the first 2 pots. You did a fabulous job. I have already used them. Please let me know where you are on the other four. Thank you.
