Now coming to the science, copper is one metal which is known for its conductivity of both cold and hot temperature. The reason why cold beverages such as Moscow mule are served in copper mugs and copper bottom cookware are preferred for slow cooking is because copper is one metal which conducts temperatures very efficiently. When the copper metal comes in contact with the heat, it absorbs the heat evenly via the surface and retains it.
