Through the ages Kansa metal craftsmen, called Kansaris, specialized in manufacturing utensils using the formula of Charaka, a famous Ayurvedic scientist who determined the proportion of copper and tin to be mixed to produce the alloy. Vessels made in kansa metal, when used over a period of time, are known to cure and prevent gastric ailments, diabetes and skin disorders.
The rich golden color of this metal improves with age, while food stored in it remains fresh and hygienic for a long time. Ayurveda recommends serving and eating in Kansa metal.
