I'm thinking about buying copper cookware, but it's a big investment. I can only purchase one piece. Is there something in particular that would be the best buy?

A Hot Investment

If you can afford to invest in just one piece of copper cookware, make it a sauce pan. Not only is temperature-responsive copper second to none in its abilities to conduct heat, it also cools down quickly as you turn down the stove dial. This is a huge plus for heat sensitive recipes, like custards, delicate sauces or caramel. Choose a 2-quart saucepan, which is roomy enough to also make rice, pasta sauce or reheat soup.
