Great question, and I'd like to add a supplemental question: anyone know a good source for re-tinning?

Well when cooking in a copper vessel you must understand that copper can harm you if you cook with it. Thus the tin lining. So if you have spots of bare copper then that is bad. If the spots are small and your not using something very acidic then you should be ok. Acidic foods such as tomatoes or vinegar can leech out material from copper.

I'd like to ask yet another supplemental question: Is it true that I shouldn't subject tinned copper pans to very high temps? And if so, what's the max?
