About Red Copper Pan

Endorsed by #1 best selling author Cathy Mitchell, the 10” Red Copper Fry Pan combines 100% pure, super strong copper and a non-stick ceramic surface. Why?

So you’ll have a durable piece of cookware that’s oven safe to 500°, and that also can be used to flambé desserts, caramelize sugar, or even mix eggs directly in the pan! In fact, whatever abuse you throw at it in the kitchen, Red Copper Pan is guaranteed to stay scratch-free forever.

Red Copper Pan’s non-stick coating is also PFOA and PTFE free, so it’s safe for your family, and when you’re finished cooking you can pop it in the dishwasher for easy cleanup.

What’s not to love about Cathy Mitchell? She’s sweet, makes wonderful food, and makes herself feel like part of the family. Does that mean her products—especially Red Copper Pan—are any good? That’s exactly what we’ll help you figure out here.

To begin our journey, let’s talk about copper cookware in general.

Is Copper a Good Cooking Surface?

Now, ‘good’ can mean different things to different people. So, in order to scale the question down a little, let’s find out some of the pros and cons for copper cookware, and we’ll leave it up to you to decide if it’s ‘good’ or not:

Copper Cookware Pros

Probably the biggest advantage of copper cookware is that it conducts heat exceptionally well. As a result, it’ll take less time to heat the food inside, evenly distribute this heat, and help it cook faster.

Copper is, for the most, easy to clean.

Finally, from a purely aesthetic standpoint, copper cookware looks stunning when hanging from a rack in your kitchen.

Copper Cookware Cons

Probably one of the biggest obstacles to overcome related to copper cookware is price. Although full copper cookware is very expensive, you can purchase it with a stainless steel or tin lining for less.

Outside of price, according to TheKitchn, copper cookware has several unique disadvantages:

“Reactive with alkaline or acidic foods, which can take on a metallic taste after being cooked in a copper pot. Light colored foods, like eggs, can also develop grey streaks when they pick up the copper compounds, which also means you'll ingest small amounts of copper. Not a big deal if it's an occasional thing, but not so great for everyday use. Copper also requires regular polishing and maintenance, and it's expensive.”

Lastly, despite what’s mentioned on the Red Copper Pan website, copper cookware is not dishwasher safe.

What Can You Expect From Red Copper Pan’s Non-Stick Coating?

Although copper is considered a tough, durable material, of anything failed on Red Copper Pan first, it’d almost certainly be the non-stick coating. We’re told it’s PFOA and PTFE-free (which is certainly positive), but is it really as durable as the company claims?

The quick answer is that there’s no way to know. We know that Red Copper Pan’s non-stick properties are provided by its ceramic coating, but not all ceramic coatings are created equal. Generally, the thicker a ceramic coating is, the more durable and long-lasting it’ll be.

And considering that most As Seen On TV products don’t exactly get high marks for quality, it’s our opinion that Red Copper Pan’s ceramic coating won’t be thick or durable.

Pro tip: In any case, it’s never a good idea to whisk eggs directly in your non-stick pan using an electric mixer, as demonstrated in the Red Copper Pan commercial.

Speaking of ASOTV products, is there anything else out there quite like Red Copper Pan?

Does Red Copper Pan Have Any Competition?

Yes. A whole lot.

In fact, outside of their different colors, it seems like Red Copper Pan is just a rebranded version of Gotham Steel Pans; except instead of being endorsed by Cathy Miller, Gotham was promoted by Chef Daniel Green. Did everyone like them?

Out of 40 reader reviews, Gotham Steel Pans had an average rating of 2.3 stars here on HighYa, mostly because they never arrived. Out of these review, a customer who received theirs, wrote:

“EVERYTHING sticks, even bacon. I'm a chef so I know I'm better off with cast iron. When particles adhere to the surface they are impossible to remove. I can cook on stainless steel with better results.”

Will you experience the same with Red Copper Pan? There’s no way to know for sure, but since they seem like they’re essentially the exact same product, we’d definitely recommend keeping it in mind.

Then, if we move outside the ASOTV realm, you’ll find that you literally have hundreds more copper/ceramic cookware to choose from, whether online or at local retailers. In some instances, you might even be able to find 6-piece cookware sets for as little as $100.

Sure, this will cost more upfront than Red Copper Pan, but you’ll be getting much more value for your money. On top of this, returning them is as easy as hopping in your car if you’re not satisfied!

This is a good opportunity to talk about Red Copper Pan’s price before wrapping up.

How Much Does Red Copper Pan Cost?

One 10” Red Copper Pan and recipe guide will cost you $19.99 plus $7.99 S&H. At checkout, you’ll also be able to order a second Pan, along with an 8” Forever Sharp Copper Knife, for an additional $9.99 S&H.

Like most Telebrands products, Red Copper Pan comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges. Keep in mind that you’ll lose $17.98 if you chose the BOGO offer, even before shipping it back to the company.

Nonetheless, customer service can be reached at 855-668-1655.

Should You Buy Red Copper Pan?

Cathy Mitchell has had some great success with ASOTV products recently, as her Dump Cakes and Dump Loaf recipe books have sold like hotcakes (excuse the bad pun). But whether we’re talking about her previous products or new ones like Red Copper Pan (and their other incarnation as Gotham Steel Pans), it seems like most customers aren’t pleased with their purchase.

Granted, Telebrands could have completely retooled the manufacturing process with Red Copper Pan, so—unlike Gotham—it’ll arrive on your doorstep quickly and function flawlessly. But if our experience reviewing hundreds of ASOTV products has taught us anything, it’s that this is unlikely.

What can you do instead? We think shopping locally for copper and ceramic cookware will help you get more bang for your buck. You’ll also be able to compare different pans in person, speak with a sales associate, and get a better feel for which options are best for you, before handing over your hard-earned money.

  • Great pan!

    We love this pan! My kids use it to make eggs. It is the first pan we grab for when cooking! Don't have to worry about what utensils the kids cook with as it won't scratch. I have used this pan to cook anything from eggs to burgers and haven't had a complaint yet.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Very disappointed

    • Texarkana, TX,
    • Jul 21, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    From day one I was dissatisfied with my purchase! I saw the ads on TV, and they convinced me to go get their product. First time I used it, I realized I made a mistake! Everything I cooked had a tendency to stick to the pan. Thank goodness Bed Bath & Beyond took them back with no questions. I bought some real cookware for the same price that I love. Don't waste your money on this!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Sticks bad and scratches

    We bought two frying pans and the square pan, and followed the directions on seasoning it. They stick bad and now are to the point where you cannot even clean them after a couple months of use. There are also scratches on them. I called on the warranty, and they wanted $9.95 to send back, plus you have to pay the shipping! NO THANKS! A total loss. Do not recommend! False advertising on the commercial.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Red Copper Pans are not what the ad says

    • Guaynabo, Puerto Rico,
    • Jul 19, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I bought a Red Copper trusting that it was nonstick and could be used as you mention in their ad. It has resulted in the worst purchase ever. After a few uses, foods stick to the pan, and the surface scratched as I tried to remove the stuck food. I have pics of the pan with the food stuck. A total deceit!

    Don't believe the advertising

    It is not non-stick. Eggs stick every time. Even if I use PAM, they stick. I'd like to send her my pan and let her try her infomercial. Good luck Cathy. It's not really worth a one-star rating. If it were available, I would give it a negative five. What ever happened to truth in advertising? Her infomercial should be taken off or tell it like it is.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Don't waste your money

    I bought the pan about a year ago. It was great for about 6-9 months. I followed the instructions on how to season the pan and clean it, but now it's terrible. Everything sticks. I sent an email to the company and was told to re-season it. I tried that but still no luck. I think I wasted my money. It was good to start out with but definitely not the last pan I will need to buy. Disappointed!

    Not easy to clean

    • Oregon,
    • Jul 12, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I was cooking two stuffed pork loins. While detained, the meat burned a bit and left a black-like-carbon residue. I tried to wash the black with hot water and soap, but it would not clean. I place the dirty copper pan in the dishwasher, as seen in the TV ad, but still it did not clean.

    I call customer service, who gave me a "new cleaning method" to place it in warm water and mild soap and to soak for 24 hours. I will try this.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Dissatisfied with Red Copper Pan

    I purchased the Red Copper 12" pan after purchasing the 8" pan with satisfaction. After using the 12" pan for a couple of months, I noticed scratches and immediately stopped its use. I did not have the receipt anymore but do remember it is supposed to last a lifetime. It's a 30-day guarantee return policy. Not fair.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Not worth the money

    • San Diego, CA,
    • Jul 11, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    Well, I waited a few months to really give it a chance. But including eggs, everything stuck to the bottom from the very first day! And you can't leave even say garlic for a second without it burning to the bottom. I'm a cook, and I cook for lots of others and I cook all the time. I have never burnt this many meals in my life. It absolutely is NOT how the commercials say.

    The only good thing about this pan is the shape and size. That is it! Do NOT waste your money. Totally not worth it.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Red Copper rip-off

    • Vineland, NJ,
    • Jul 11, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I would give this pan zero stars if that were possible. It's absolutely not non-stick. My plain old fry pans are more non-stick. I've tried everything; cooking spray, oil, etc., and everything sticks to this pan. I finally just tossed it in the trash.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Complete garbage

    • Los Angeles, CA,
    • Jul 11, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    EVERYTHING I have cooked in this pan sticks, even eggs when I've used butter.

    Never scratches? Hahaha! The first time I cooked a steak (which stuck to the pan) I cut it while in the pan, and it immediately scratched and now everything REALLY sticks and makes the pan difficult to clean. A waste of $70.00. I recommend you buy ceramic.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
