Hi Jim - Just returned home, and your box was awaiting for me! The pan with the shortened handle, looks great!
Perhaps it’s a little unconventional but it will fit in perfectly! For nearly 40 years its moved with me from London to multiple apartments and homes never venturing outside the basement till you worked your magic. It now has pride of place.
Thanks again for your help rescuing the “ugly ducklings” and giving them a new lease on life!
Till the next time -
— Martin, Boston Jun'19
Jim, Got my pan today. Looks AWESOME! Thanks!
— PJ, FL Jun'19
Hi Jim, I just received the Sauce and Fry Pan. They are absolutely gorgeous! Thank you! Do you use a “special” Polish to attain such beautiful color? Again, thank you for your prompt service on these Beautiful pieces!
— Tom, AR Jun'19
Hi Jim, Pot and lid arrived safe and sound and beautifully packed!! It is indeed beautiful- such a great job!!
Thanks for resurrection of this antique!
— Bonnie, Colorado Apr'19
My copper stock pot came home last week. It was like new out of the box! East Coast Tinning more than lived up to its reputation. Great work at an honest price. I will definitely use you again.
— John, Washington DC, Mar'19
I rarely take the time to leave reviews but I just now received the two sauce pans and one skillet that I sent in and I just had to comment. You are a true craftsman. The pans are better than new. Beautiful work. Worth every penny. Thank you so much.
— Bill, PA Feb'19
Jim, the pan looks amazing. I couldn’t believe that it was the same pan. I just looked at it with my mouth open and confused if you sent me the right pan (which it is). I’m so grateful for the craftsmanship you and your team out into it. Thank you so much, you have a customer for life. Cheers,
— Brittany, California Feb'19
We received the pan yesterday and just love it! My husband is over the moon. Re-tinning the pan was a surprise and he just can’t believe how beautiful it is now. He had put it away in a cupboard and now it’s displayed beautifully on our stove!
— Mary, California Feb'19
Thank you so very much for the restoration of the most gorgeous stock pot ever! I am thinking serioudly about using it as a decorative item as it is breathtaking.
— Pat, MD Jan'19
I’d thought I sent you an immediate thank you for the PERFECTLY WONDERFUL job y’all did on my two little frying pans, but see that I didn’t, so here it is, a little late but no less heart felt. After a very bad job last time, it was just AMAZING to see what really serious professionals can do. I am very very grateful, thank you thank you. Have recommended, and will continue to recommend you to everyone who admires my little pans!
— Kip, MD Dec'18
Dear People at East Coast Tinning:
We have just collected our newly tinned and coppered pan from the post office, and we are thrilled with the result! We have owned and used and loved this pan for 50 years or more, and it is miraculous to see it restored to its original elegance. Thank you!
— Paula, Maine Nov'18
Just received my re-tinned Villedieu pan and at first I thought you sent back the wrong item. Your workmanship is simply remarkable. I bought this pan new 35 years ago and through moves it ended up tucked away in the back of a cupboard. No more! It’s back to being the kitchen show piece and will be used regularly. Thanks again for your amazing craft and attention to detail caring for these old pots.
— Rick, NC Oct'18
Hi Jim, I received my pots yesterday, they look wonderful! Thank you very much, you do beautiful work.
— Gretchen, IL Oct'18
I am so grateful for all who have written such well-deserved praise for what you can do to restore old copper treasures. After reading those many notes of praise, I sent you 2 of my old but useless treasures. The large saute pan and lid came back looking like it was on the day some thirty-plus years ago when I purchased it in DeHillerin’s shop in Paris! I promptly re-arranged my glass kitchen cabinet so I could look at this beautiful copper pan.

Today I have sent off 6 more copper pans for you to do your magic. They are not the same quality as the earlier ones I sent but nevertheless in such bad shape that they are not usable. If they can be salvaged, I know you are the one to do it!

Cooking is my passion and I thank you sincerely for restoring my “tools of my trade.”
— Geraldine, ME Sep'18
Jim, both pans arrived this morning just fine. Thanks for the quick service. I was really on the fence about whether to send them because in my mind they were sort of ‘okay’. But once they arrived and I had a look at them, they are gorgeous and I am most happy that I sent them your way. I’m sure we will do something again soon.
— Chris, Virginia Sep'18
I received pots today they are GORGEOUS u r truly a magician thank you so much!
— Beverly, New York Aug'18
I am thrilled with your craftsmanship! Thank you
A few more to come in August.
Many, many thanks
— Laurie, SC Jul'18
Good morning, the pans arrived safe and sound and they are so beautiful I “almost” hate to use them !
— Elizabeth, Vermont Jul'18
Jim, I just opened my box of pans. You, sir, are a master craftsman. I had bought these on eBay — and now they look like pans bought for hundreds of dollars. They are my only copper pans, and now I feel like Jacques Pepin. THANK YOU......with very best regards,
— David, Brooklyn NY Mar'18
Hello Jim, I just wanted to tell you that my pans look FANTASTIC! I have never seen them like that! Good job and thank you!
— Catherine, CANADA Mar'18
The pot arrived. It’s gorgeous. Thank you for your work and your expertise. I wish all our other pots looked as beautiful.
— Christina, California Mar'18
Thank you! It is BEAUTIFUL. You did a superlative job. It’s not the first time I’ve had that pan retinned, and the previous job was, to say the least, less than good, and possibly not even adequate, so I was a bit nervous about what would happen this time around – especially since we had to ship it to you!
Thank you again, and again, for such a wonderful restoration of a piece that holds memories as well as being fabulous in its own right.
— Grace, AR Mar'18
Jim, Got the pots today. They look FANTASTIC!
Much appreciated -
— Dave, Chicago Feb'18
Just received the tin/polish pan . AMAZING ! You have gold in your finger. What a job!

I have few other items that I would like you to work on....
— Stephane, New Jersey Feb'18
Jim, I just wanted to let you know that I have received my pots. I must say I am more than pleased with the results. You did an excellent job and I am so happy with your craftsmanship. I was a little nervous about shipping these antique pots off to someone far away. You have exceeded my expectation and those pots will continue to be heirlooms in the family for another hundred years.
— Kelly, MI Jan'18
While living in England we purchased a few antique copper pieces; we sent a piece to Jim for tinning. We received the piece back today, and have to say Jim’s work is superbly done! We will be sending other purchases for tinning.
— Lisa, WI Jan'18
Hi Jim, I received my copper pans today. I was blown away by their beauty! Superb work! Thank you so much!
— Lisa, SC Jan'18
Hi Jim, I just received my five restored copper pans that after forty years were in pretty sad shape and wow they are like brand new. I am thrilled beyond expectation at your skill and artistry as the tinning you did is amazing. Thank you so very much for doing such a fabulous job. I will recommend you highly and will be sending a few more pieces to you. So grateful I found you on the internet after years of wanting to have the tinning done. Thanks again,
— Stephanie, MI Sep'17
The pans we received today are absolutely beautiful! Almost too gorgeous to cook in — but not quite!
— Barbara, New York Aug'17
Just received my copper pot today and it looks amazing! Thank you so much for making this old pot useable again! We thought it had seen it’s last days after Katrina but you resurrected it beyond what we expected! Your workmanship is to be admired!
— Theodora, LA Mar'17
You have done it again, Jim, my pots arrived back this evening, better than new!
My little sauce pan is almost 40 years old. I thought it was destroyed (left on a stove by teenagers, grrr), but you brought it back to life.

Thank you. Your craftsmanship is second-to-none.
— Ultan, New York City - Feb'17
Jim, After months of concerns of sending our family cooking heirlooms of copper cooking pans and bowl to a professional, all I can say is thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We were so happy to see after only 2 weeks our pans back and amazingly renewed! Your craftsmanship is amazing and it’s great to know that a craftsman in copper still exists! Our photos show your recent surprise from what we sent only several weeks ago!
PS thanks for correcting the handle angle on the large sauté pan!
— Bob, Florida - Feb'17
Just received my items……I’m thrilled!.....really beautiful, absolutely like new! I have no idea how you do the polishing but the results are excellent.
— Robert, South Carolina - Feb'17
Gentlelmen, I received my re-done saucepan and couldn’t be happier. This is a large, very expensive Italian-made copper pan that required immediate attention to the inside and bottom. The alternative was to throw it out. Your re-tinning process brought the pan back to life for many years to come. The copper cleaning across the bottom/sides and the work on the brass handle are first-rate. My wife cooks almost exclusively with copper so she’ll accept nothing less than the best in re-tinning. That’s what she got.
— Don, LA - Feb'17
Jim - WOW! Our large copper pot arrived today looking better than new. So pleased we found you.
— Brad, NC - May'16
Thanks so much. Everything arrived and they are beautiful! Great work.
— Jessica, Mass. - May'16
I received my newly tinned Ruffoni Stock Pot last week and it is absolutely gorgeous! I am wondering what type of copper polish you use. I have never seen it so shiny and pretty. The tinning looks a lot better than when the pot was new! Great job!
— Greg, Salt Lake City, UT - Apr'16
Hi Jim, he pan arrived today. Damn, what nice work! Thank you so much. We could not be happier.
— Howard, ME - Aug'15
My package arrived safe and sound. Thanks so much for going the extra mile in saving my little “stockpot.” Some of life’s simple pleasures are priceless. I salute you and your staff of talented artisans——-“MAGNIFICENT”.
All the Best -
— John, GA - Aug'15
Jim — You have restored my faith in the continuum of serious craftsmanship and respect for the past. After two years of combat with a not-to-be-named retinner and serious action to recover my heirloom copper pans, you appeared as a recommendation from a friend. Within weeks, not years, my pans are retinned, polished and, as of dinnertime last night, back in use, as they have been for three generations of my family. I am completely impressed with your talent, professionalism, and remarkable understanding of how important to our daily lives these wonderful cooking pieces can be , whatever their age. Endless thanks to you!
— Harry, VA - Jul'15
Thanks so very much for a splendid job on the pans I sent you. I will be telling everyone who will listen about you guys and what wonderful work you do. You are skilled craftsmen indeed !! They far exceed anything I had in mind. Well done and I will be sending any I find in the future. Take good care and thanks again.
— Gary, NC - Feb'15
The pot arrived today in all of its stunning newness. I would like to say that this whole process has been more than felicitous, from finding your webpage, to sending it via FedEx, to response to my query, to being able to follow its progress when you shipped it, to its arrival today. Thank you. You are now “bookmarked “ and will be an unqualified recommendation to anyone who inquires. And they will when they see it sitting on my stove top...
— Dennis, Minneapolis - Jan'15
We received the pots back today. WOW, we are so impressed with your work! We cannot thank you enough. We look forward to buying some of you items soon.
— Laurie, Las Vegas - Oct'14
Jim, How wonderful and how prompt. We have been traveling and just returned to find the gorgeous saute pan. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you. And you may rest assured that everytime I see copper, I shall tell the owner about you, in case they do not know. [My husband] joins me in gratitude and being thrilled. No, not hyperbole.
— Nona, NH - May'14
Thank you so much for quickly returning my copper saute pan in its stunningly beautiful refurbished condition. I am very impressed with the quality of your work and the speedy turnaround time. Just amazing!
— Mark, VA - Apr'14
Got the pan in the mail the other day. It looks fantastic ! Thanks for the prompt service and great job.
— Greg, Massachusetts - Apr'14
I received my copper pan yesterday and it looks fantastic! Thank you very much! I will be sure to recommend your service to my customers at Tiffany & Co.
— Victoria, NYC - Mar'14

Great turn around time. I’m glad I’ve found you!
— Becky, Virginia - Mar'14
I got my pots today and I love them once again! I will let Williams-Sonoma know how satisfied I am with your work! I am going to take them to the store and show them your great work. I wish you much success!
— Robert, Arlington - 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, North Carolina - Feb'14
The pots arrived in gleaming perfection! Thank you so much.
— Marjorie, Virginia - Feb'14
I received the pots yesterday and they are beautiful!!! Will save up some money to send in the last batch soon. Hope all is well with you, and again, thank you for your wonderful work!
— Sandy, Raleigh - Feb'14
That was done very quickly. Very nice! Thank you!
— Marlys, IA - Feb'14
My pot looks AMAZING. Almost too beautiful to cook in. And to think I almost threw it away. What a transformation! Thank you for doing such a wonderful job.
— Susan, New York - Jan'14
I meant to call you as soon as the box arrived and all the holiday furor simply got in my way, I guess. The pots are beautiful! You did a wonderful job. Thank you so much!...
— Marjorie, Virginia - Jan'14
Wow! I received my box today. I’m very impressed. Thanks for making my old cookware look new again! I bought the lot at an auction, so I had no idea how it would look cleaned up. You exceeded my expectations!
— Cathy, Ohio - Dec'13
Just wanted to let you know that the pan arrived today and it is beautiful! Your craft is art. More pans will be on the way.
— Yvonne, Illinois - Nov'13
It looks just beautiful, Jim! Many thanks for your kind assistance. I recommend your work to many!
— Stacey, IL - Nov'13
I received my pan this afternoon. Thank you for a wonderful job. I am emailing all my friends with your information. Thanks again, it was really nice doing business with you.

Our three pots arrived today. Once again you have done a great job. Thanks again.....
— Elizabeth, New York City - Sep'13
Pots arrived gleaming, now good for another 30 years! Thanks very much for such a quick, professional, and pleasant job.
— Martha, Chicago - Aug'13
Thanks Jim, It looks gorgeous. 50 years glowing with many dings, a suitable comment on our marriage!
— Angela, Florida - Jul'13
The job you did is amazing. Can’t thank you enough.
— Mark, New York City - Jul'13
They all look great and can’t say enough.. Thanks so much for everything and your generosity, I will refer to all who are into cooking and foodies...
— Sarah, Michigan - Jun'13
Two beautiful shiny pot grace my island this afternoon - bringing lots of wonderful memories back to my husband and I. We look forward to adding more stories to the existing ones. Much appreciation for your excellent workmanship and prompt service. We have already shared your name with friends.
— Meredith, Pennsylvania - Jun'13
Wow, amazing! Seriously, a jewel. Thanks again for the great work. New pans are on their way soon! ;)
— Thibault, California - Jun'13
So sorry that I have been such a pain. My pots arrived today and they are beautiful! Tonight I am preparing orzo to inaugurate my large pot....

Thank you for being an old fashioned craftsman it is surely appreciated!!....after reading so many online reviews clearly I made the correct choice.

— Richard, Pennsylvania - May'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, Georgia - 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, Nevada - Apr'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, Illinois - Mar'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, California, Feb'13
I received my refurbished pan this afternoon and…wow! We’re totally impressed with your work and I plan on sending you another pan in the near future. I still can’t believe you did all this for $85.00—-including shipping! Excellent job—-thank you!
— Tiss, Minnesota - Feb'13
The pans arrived and they are gorgeous! Thank you for your incredible work.
— Debra, California - Jan'13
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, New York - 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, New York - 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, Pennsylvania - Dec'12
Thank you so much for the wonderful ‘face lift’ you gave my antique copper pan. I can’t recommend your work highly enough. You even tightened the loose rivets on the handle, thereby restoring the original old style rivets and not replacing them. The reason I keep sending copper cookware to you to restore to a usable condition is simply because your work is excellent. Until the next time, thank you.
— Dianne, Berkeley CA Jun'19
Jim, the pot arrived today - It is beautiful! Thank you for giving this little pot a new life! You all are appreciated!
— Hal, MI Jun'19
Hi Jim – My pans arrived yesterday (so fast!), and I’m overwhelmed. They’re stunning. The tinning is gorgeous. The shine is gorgeous. You’re doing great and good work. I posted photos on Instagram and credited East Coast Tinning with the restoration work.
— Andrew, New York Jun'19
Oh-my-goodness .... the pan looks absolutely BEAUTIFUL ... your work is amazing!! Thank you for making my sad little pan look new again!
— The Krew, Maryland Apr'19
The small pan arrived today. Boy, you did an amazing job! I really appreciate your help.
— Howard, ME Apr'19
Dear Jim and company, I’m in heaven!!! Thank you so much for doing what you do... and doing it oh so well. Beautiful! With much appreciation,
— Debbie, MA Feb'19
I received my copper stock pot today. You did a beautiful job of retinning my pot. It looks better than when I bought it 20 years ago. Thank you so much. I would rate you a 15 out of 10.
— Michele, CT Feb'19
Good Morning Jim- I had wanted to write as soon as I opened my box but life got into my way. WOW!!!! It was better than Christmas to pull out my beloved copper pot. I was stunned at how you brought my favorite pot back to life. The outside shined so bright and the inside had been re-tinned so beautifully after I destroyed it with an emulsion blender. I have loved this pot for years making many recipe memories and hope that some day one of my girls will cherish it as much as I do.. thank you so much for the love and beauty that was put into restoring this piece. I hope you have a wonderful day and are making many others smile as bright as I did… you are an incredible artist… thank you….
— Marjorie, New York Feb'19
Wow jim these pots are unbelievable thanks for the great work!
— Rick, New Jersey Feb'19

— Lori, GA Jan'19
I received my stock pot and it is perfect. Looks better than the day I bought it. Like other reviewers, I am hesitant to use it….but it is Fall and soup is on the menu. So the stock pot will be used and enjoyed. thanks for the beautiful re-tinning.
— Dorothy, DE Nov'18
The retinning and polishing of my au gratin pan was extraordinary. It looks like it did 30 years ago when I first received it as a wedding present. Today is our anniversary, so it is fitting that this lovely utensil was returned to us in such fine condition. Thank you,
— Barbara, California Oct'18
Wowee! Jim, my pans are gorgeous! You gave my very abused cookware a whole new life and I can’t thank you enough for knowing your craft.
Kindest regards,
— Joann, CT Oct'18
What a great job! Thank you. Will be mailing in another...
— Gina, Knoxville Oct'18
You have ruined my Bottega del Rame pan!!
For cooking that is. How can I cook in this - you have turned it into a work of art! Now I’ll have to buy a plain old All-Clad to cook in. Absolutely beautiful job! Thanks again,
— Tim, NM Oct'18
WOW! Thank you so much!! Awesome job!!
— Joanne, Virginia Sep'18
Hi Jim, I received my pot and it is GORGEOUS! What a beautiful job you did on it. I’ll be sending more pots this week. Thank you.
— Renee, NY City Sep'18
We just returned home to find that our copper skillet have arrived. I just wanted to tell you how very very pleased I am. As I told you before I sent it, that I had it retinned before and it looked great for a while (at an over priced amount) and then quickly looked terrible. Thank you so much. I have other pots that may be coming your way in the future.
— Noel, FL Aug'18
Hi Jim - My Mom’s pans turned out so beautifully that it brought tears to my eyes. She recently passed away and she would have been so happy to see how they turned out. I can’t wait to make one of her pies in them. My sister has already put in her order. You are truly a wonderful artisan!
— Andrew, DE Jul'18
I can’t thank you enough for your amazing job on my beloved risotto pan! It’s positively gleaming, so much that I’m almost afraid to use it anew! Great job
— Ann, New York City Jul'18
Thanks for the great service on my pot and colander tinning. Just got it and they’re like new.
— Ed, California Jul'18
My brass bowl arrived today - WOW! it’s so beautiful! What an amazing difference - I don’t think it ever looked that good, even when it was newly-made for me. I surely would have remembered such a gem.
I am really delighted and wish I had a lot of bowls and pots that need refurbishing so I could send them to you. I am so pleased.
Many thanks. I will tell everyone about your business.
— Susan, MA Mar'18
The au gratin and frying pans arrived. Thank you so much for restoring the pans to their former glory. I actually gasped when I opened the package. They are absolutely gorgeous, and I can’t wait to get cooking! I’ll be in touch about re-tinning and polishing the rest of our collection.
— Kate, Brooklyn Mar'18
My copper paella pan arrived today..... its more beautiful than it was the day I bought it!!!!!! Thank you so much. Is there any site I can leave you a superb review?!
— Helena, OH Mar'18
I just received the fish platter, and it is beautiful! Everything I had expected and more.

Jim, My pots arrived today. I am extremely pleased with the outcome. They once again look beautiful. Thank you!
— Doug, Maine Feb'18
Hi Jim, I just wanted you to know how beautiful the teakettle turned out. You do such a fabulous job! I will be sending you a small sauce pan in the next few months. I will give you a notice when it is in the mail. Thank you again! I am just thrilled with my tea kettle. Sincerely,
— Rosayn, CO Jan'18
I am so, so pleased with the retinning on my stock pot! It is absolutely beautiful. My husband, at first, couldn’t understand the cost of retinning, but knows how much that pot means to me – lots of memories started in that pot! When he saw how much they cost now – he was sold. I am thrilled and will recommend you to anyone that is in need of reviving a beloved copper pot. Thank you.
— Robin, MT Jan'18
3 pans returned yesterday. Very fast work and your results are fantastic. Very impressive restoration on these, they look great. Thank you very much.

— Nancy, Mass - Feb'17
I just received the pan (it was on hold at my office during the break). What a beauty!
I am so excited. Beautiful work, thanks again for the beautiful craft!
— Thibault, San Francisco - Jan'17
Your workmanship is amazing.
The pans are stunning.
You leave me speechless.
Thank you.
— Leslie, Brooklyn - May'16
Wow! I can hardly believe the much-loved, battered pan and lid I got back from you were the same two I sent out. Well done! I almost don’t want to mess it up by using it. But I will. On the inaugural menu: buffalo meat bolognese.
— Mike, Iowa - May'16
Hi Jim, My jaw dropped when I opened the box and saw my roasting pan, the copper, the brass handles and the tin perfectly done was awesome. Your pride in workmanship was evident throughout. I walked over to my neighbor to show him and my postal lady saw it and was amazed at the beauty and said it was a shame to stick it in the oven. I admit a few hours later there was just a twinge of reluctance as the roaster loaded with a plump chicken, root vegetables and herbs went into the oven. Nah, in it goes fulfilling its mission in life as it has these last 35 years. Thanks for your quick communications and prompt service, glad I found East Coast Tinning.
— Mike, New York City - Nov'15
Jim. I just received my pan. Thank you so much! It is stunning! Your work truly is a labor of love that has breathed new life into this old beauty! I am thrilled! Thanks again. Hope to do business again soon.
— Kelli, IL - Jul'15
Jim, the FedEx truck just delivered the box of copper JEWELRY~ I opened it as quickly as possible and have all the good-as-new pieces decorating our counter top! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! I am thrilled and grateful and will be able to use these pieces probably for the rest of my life! Blessings to you as you continue your work and skilled artistry.
— Jo, Colorado - May'15
Jim, they just arrived and like everything else you have done for us, they turned out spectacular!!
thanks as always! You probably don’t need references, but feel free to use us!
— Gail, VA - Feb'15
I just opened up my old sauté pan, and simply cannot believe this is the same pan! Thank you!
— Margaret, Los Angeles - Jan'15
As usual, thanks for the superb work!—an especially nice job on cleaning up the handle, too.
More to follow in the winter...
— Noah, Chicago - Sep'14
What a fantastic job you did on the pots! Love them. Have 2 more so we will be back...
— Andrea, MA - Sep'14

— Yuriko, MA - Apr'14
OMG! The coppers came today. So beautifully restored. That makes me so happy! Thank you so much.
— Martha, NY - Apr'14
Got the pan back today, March 20. Looks like the best re-tinning I’ve ever had out of six so far. Better looking than when I bought it. The tin is extraordinarily bright. Many thanks for your prompt service, outstanding communication, and very helpful tips on how to keep it great looking.
— William, Cleveland - Mar'14
Received. Thanks. Excellent job! Looks better than brand new. Very prompt and efficient service. Bravo!
— Elias, NYC - Mar'14
The sauté pan and lid have arrived. As usual, a wonderful job! Thanks ever so much!
— Stephen, MA - Mar'14
Please feel free to share with your prospective customers that this is the third pot I’ve sent you over the past year. And that the simple reason i sent you the second was how beautifully you restored the first.
Thanks for the quick turnaround, but most of all thanks for the craftsmanship.

Just got the copper — totally gorgeous. Thanks again!
— Stephen, New York - 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,
— Terry, Brooklyn - Feb'14
Thanks so much the pots look great and have really been restored to their copper glory. Thanks for quickly turning them around!
— Brian, Maine - Feb'14
My retinned pans arrived today. Your workmanship is very, very impressive. I will definitely send more items for retinning, but not quite yet...
— Millard, CANADA - Feb'14
Hi Jim, Unbelievable job on re-habbing my pot. Thanks.
— Craig, Connecticut - Feb'14
Just received our pan today - if was almost like having one of our kids come home - and it really looks fantastic! Thank you very very much,
— Robbie, Boston - Jan'14
I just received the large saute pan that you re-tinned and I just want to tell you that I’m absolutely delighted! It looks brand new. I can’t wait to receive the others which should arrive on Monday. Thanks for all the good work.
— Chet, NYC - Dec'13
Our one quart pot which arrived home yesterday looks astoundingly (really) beautiful. It rivals the currant offerings in William Sonoma from which it came. Thank you!
— Kathryn, California - Dec'13
All I can say is “wow”! What a fantastic service you provide.
— James, Boston - Nov'13
The pots arrived yesterday and I can’t tell you how thrilled I was to see what you had done to refurbish them. My grandmother was married in 1903 in Naples Italy and the oldest pots were her wedding present. She brought them with her when she arrived at Ellis Island and used them for as long as I can remember....
— JoAnne, New York - Nov'13
Hello Jim! I’m sorry that this email is getting to you so late but I just wanted to tell you how much I love the pan! It turned out so beautifully and I couldn’t be happier with it! Thank you for doing such a lovely and perfect job with it!
— Anna, New Jersey - Oct'13
It arrived and is beautiful. Thank you. We are most pleased to be able to use it. Thank you again!
— Bruce, Utah - Sep'13
About 30 minutes ago I opened the box and my copper pan surpassed my expectations! It is beautiful and I cannot wait to show it off by cooking some special recipe using it. Thank you for your skill, your care, and your timeliness.

With my heartfelt gratitude -
— Hollac, California - Aug'13
Thank you so much! Gorgeous results from an old set of copper!! My husband is walking around pulling this pot or pan out saying send East Coast this one :)
— Charlene, Maryland - Jun'13
My sauce pan arrived yesterday, and it is, as I expected, gorgeous. You are a true craftsman. Can’t tell you how much I appreciate what you do -
— David, Missouri - Jun'13
OMG! Jim, my sauté pan was just hand delivered....It’s so BEAUTIFUL, I don’t think I want to get it dirty! You truly are amazing. Thank you for your perfection.
— Terry, Vermont - Jun'13
All the pans and lids arrived in good condition. I am very impressed with your work. The pans look brand new even the older late 19th century ones. You even polished the iron handles! I have a few more to send your way once my funds are replenished.
— Bill, North Carolina - Jun'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, Florida - Apr'13
Jim, Y’all are miracle workers! Your work is absolutely beautiful.....Thank you so much,
— Chris, Georgia - Apr'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
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, North Carolina - Mar'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!
— Judith, Maryland - Feb'13
I got my five pans back, thank you. They are fantastic. By return, I have sent you two more....
— Ultan, NYC - Jan'13
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
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
I received the stock pot today and it is stunning! Beyond what I expected and your craftsmanship is world class. Thank you for making this special piece work for us.
— Elias, Texas - Nov'12
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, Connecticut - Apr'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, Massachusetts - Mar'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, Illinois - 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 could 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, Kentucky - 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.)
— Holly, California - Feb'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, Connecticut - 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, California - Jan'10
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, Georgia - Dec'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 - New Hampshire - Oct'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, Texas - Aug'09
I just got the stockpot and I’m so excited. I didn’t think your were going to be able to fix it and it is perfect. Thank you so much. It is absolutely beautiful and arrived in perfect shape. I am referring you to absolutely everybody I can think of !!
— Ann, Oregon - Jul'09
My boxes just came and everything absolutely looks fabulous. I am so pleased especially that big pot - I almost cried when I opened it up. You are an artist and I so appreciate your work!
— Ruthann, Washington - Jul'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, New Mexico - Jun'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
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, New Hampshire - Mar'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, New York - Jan'09
It was here yesterday and it looks beautiful. thanks so much and happy holidays
— Joyce, Florida - Dec'08
Absolutely phenomenal job! Thank you.
— Pete, New Jersey - Nov'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, New York City - 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, Virginia - Sep'08
You did a fabulous job with my two bent pots. Domestic harmony is restored. Thank you for the incredibly swift turn around.
— Susan, Massachusetts - 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, Massachusetts - Jul'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!
— Vinny, New York - 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, Massachusetts - May'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, Massachusetts - 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, Connecticut - Apr'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.
— Hans, Massachusetts - Feb'08
The paella pan has arrived. It’s beautiful! So glad I found you on the web...
— Maureen, California - Feb'08
Thank you for the great service, I will definitely reflect in the feedback...and I have more pans to do.
— Julie, Colorado - Jan'08
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.
— Elsie, Pennsylvania - Nov'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, New Jersey - Sep'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, Michigan - Jul'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, Virginia - Jun'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, Vermont - May'07
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, California - Aug'06
