Cooking with your mom’s copper pots could make you sick

Copper pots can be an absolute dream addition to your kitchen but also a nightmare to maintain – and in some cases, they can be dangerous to use.

Let me explain: Copper pots are considered reactive cookware, which means the metal is reactive with acidic and alkaline foods. In other words, when you’re cooking with tomatoes or lemon juice, your food may take on a slightly metallic flavor. Now on the plus side, these metals are great conductors of heat which means they cook food evenly and adjust their temperature very quickly – so it’s not all bad right?
