    Should be okay as long as the copper is only a coating but I'm not sure.

    They should be fine eating the cornbread.
     
  5. Almost every piece of commercial candy on Earth is produced using copper cooking vessels and copper stills reduce the presents of congeners or poisons like sulfur in distilled spirits. I think corn bread cooked in copper pans will be fine.

    Personally I think that cast iron is a better vessel for cooking corn bread destined for human consumption because of the improved crust formation and heat retention.

    Love my cast iron too. That being said I've been baking in silicone lately and wow, no greasing required, even cakes tip right out.

    Well that's true enough agreed! Made great banana bread easy though.

    Cast iron is the way to go! It's about the only thing I use except for 2 stainless steel pots to boil eggs or make soup.
    Cast iron lasts forever is taken care of - I have my own, but my 88yr old mother has cast iron from her great grandmother she still uses - these pieces will come to me when she's done with them, I will continue to use them and pass them on to who...not sure! No one else seems to cook in my family:hmm
