  I wouldn't use them over a campfire or outdoors but actually this set 
is listed as
"With its stainless-steel exterior and interior, Ruffoni Opus Prima 
cookware is easy to use and maintain. It performs well on any stovetop 
and in the oven. And it’s dishwasher safe, except for the lid’s 
silver-plated knob, which is easily removed."
They have several lines of pots and pans. 

Another description in the W-S website reads:

After more than 45 years of producing extraordinary pots and pans from 
copper, the Ruffoni family is channeling its artistry and craftsmanship 
into clad stainless-steel cookware of the same exceptional quality. 
Developed for Williams-Sonoma, this versatile sauté pan is made from 
alternating layers of stainless steel and aluminum, creating a cooking 
surface that conducts heat efficiently, eliminates hot spots and 
withstands rigorous use. The handle and lid are solid stainless steel, 
and the lid’s knob is hand cast in brass and plated in silver by a 
Milanese silversmith. The hand-hammered stainless-steel exterior makes 
each pan one of a kind, as denoted by its unique serial number inscribed 
on the bottom. The pot is dishwasher safe, with the knob removable for 
hand washing. 5-qt. cap., 10 1/4" diam. Made in Italy. A Williams-Sonoma 

I really don't think that the pot that suffered catastrophe at the War 
was the same as these pans are new and just being offered.
So Was it stainless steel or are we talking about another line of 
Ruffoni pans?

At the risk of quenching the lust, allow me to bring it back on topic and
show you what can happen when you use the pot in period cooking. The
