Big Kitchens !

Many of you wonder how it is possible to cook with copper pots so huge that today they seem decorative objects.

In reality it was pots actually made for cooking.

In the past, for example in the factories, there were many, really many workers. Now with new technologies machines can replace 100, 1000 workers and more!

Whether in factories, high schools, hospitals, administrations, very large restaurants, it is difficult to imagine today the number of workers who could compose these structures.

If today you are told that it took several hundred workers to run a single store on floors, you would have a hard time believing it!

Yet it was! There were a lot of trades that can not be found in a big department store today. For example, seamstresses in the clothing department. Boilermakers in the basements. Packers who prepared the mailings. Services for local, national, international deliveries. All the material was within the same structure. Today we see a shipment like those we receive in our mailbox. But at that time it was necessary to supply bathtubs, stoves and so many very heavy and cumbersome things. It was necessary to manufacture huge wooden crate!

In the same department store Paris was everything! Absolutely everything ! It's like taking today a lighting shop, another one that specializes in heating, food, sports, everything you want and that we make it one shop!

Cooking equipment and ovens, electric cookers or gas have evolved. Refrigerators, freezers, cold rooms and all other equipment require less handling. Microwaves, induction. Conservation is better managed today. Many foods are presented already cut, frozen and ready to cook. When it's not frozen full dishes that are on offer! Formerly it was necessary to peel, cut, etc. Imagine the work for the meat!

You now better understand the utility of huge kitchens and huge copper pots from this era to feed so many employees!

So these huge copper pots show the story of an impressive past. A know how to disappear and unique.
Today it would be difficult to use it to cook! But this does not prevent some to do it with a little imagination! On a grill in the fireplace, using several fireplaces on the gas or electric ranges ...

To all Copper Lovers, T.J.
