Copper is able to cook food evenly and transfer heat properly, however, it is a reactive material and can give your food a metallic taste. 

Light colored foods usually pick up the copper compound while they are cooking, and this means that you will be ingesting some copper as you eat. Copper cookware requires a large amount of maintenance and it is also a very expensive material to purchase in cookware.

Cast Iron​
