As a tourist walking through the Grand Bazaar of Tehran, you will inevitably run into shops displaying a whole variety of shiny, cute copperwares. These shops are always local favorites, and can be found all over the bazaar and the city.
These stores have a variety of different kitchen utensils in all different shapes and sizes. Coffee pots, pans, dishes, and even spoons and forks are quite common. You can buy a few small items for yourself or for anyone back home. They can even be used for decorative purposes, giving your kitchen a new look and feel. Copperwares can make the perfect gift, or be used right in the kitchen. Along with giving food a distinct flavor, they even have a wide array of health benefits.
Copperwares are just one aspect of Iran’s wide ranging pool of art. Either made by hand the old-fashioned way or milled on a machine, copper utensils are quite common in local households throughout Iran. If you are lucky, you may even get the chance to see some items being made right in the bazaar.
