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 cookware, bad warranty

    • Erie, PA,
    • Mar 24, 2017

    The cookware needs to be cured first, and so far it has done exactly what it should! I fried cheese and got crispy, light brown cheese chips.

    Now it has a lifetime warranty that is worthless. It cost $19.98 to purchase, and $19.99 shipping handling to refurbish/replace their decision. I don't know how long it will last, but don't let the warranty be the reason you buy it. May as well not exist, cost you a penny more to use it. Still, it's worth the buy, and the time to cure it. Buy it for the reason it works.

    Best cookware ever, but worst warranty ever! LOL. I would rate it 5 stars if not for the warranty.

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

  • Very disappointed

    I wish I would've read reviews before I bought it. It worked for awhile but now like most reviews, everything sticks and it is very hard to clean. If I treat it before EACH use, it sometimes works.

    I'm back to my old cast iron where at least when you treat them they work! I know there's the guarantee, but I might as well buy a new one for what the free replacement costs. Ridiculous!

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

  • Working ok

    I purchased this very pan at my local grocery store (Kroger) last week. So far it works fine, except I did find egg residue stuck to the top ridge of pan after rinsing. I will inform y'all later how it holds up for me.

    Great at first

    The first few times I used the pan it worked great. Now things are sticking more and more and it is harder to clean it.

  • Junk

    • Breesport, NY,
    • Mar 22, 2017

    I thought I had finally found a really great frying pan, but I was sadly mistaken. The first few times I used it was great. Now I cannot fry eggs in it. Eggs stick TERRIBLY and I am VERY disappointed! Don't waste your money on these.

  • Cooper Pan

    • Orangeburg, SC,
    • Mar 22, 2017

    I purchased my pan about a month ago, and I love it. It cooks as indicated on TV and I have baked in it. Right now I am steaming broccoli, and it smells good.

    The only drawback I have is that the handle gets hot whether on top of the stove or in the oven. You must try this pot, it holds a whole chicken and roasts very well.

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

    Not worth the money, return policy a joke

    I received a 10" skillet as a gift. There were NO instructions on care or use in the box (it was sealed). I did receive a "before you start" instructions and guarantee on the back of this.

    Skillet has nicks and one scratch, and now sticks. This skillet is about two months old. I am retired and cook one meal a day, usually. This skillet was not abused.

    To return it would cost $8.99 plus shipping, tracking and insurance costs. Pretty much the cost of the skillet.

    The product is a joke.

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

    Not as advertised

    • Bothell, WA,
    • Mar 20, 2017

    My Ted Copper pan sticks in one spot, as does my Copper Chef pan. The Red Copper cleans nice but has a small gouge in the pan from the very first time of use. Food has a different texture.

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

    Waste of money

    • Amarillo, TX,
    • Mar 20, 2017

    I bought the pan three months ago and the pan only worked as advertised the first time. Pan sticks, started getting a brown layer of gunk on it, and I won't even cook on it anymore. Beware; a waste of money for just one use!

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

    Red Copper Pan, Walmart version

    • Arizona,
    • Mar 19, 2017

    I bought my Red Copper Pan at Walmart for about the same price as advertised on TV. Their claims to have a non-stick surface are absolute nonsense; although it compares well with the characteristic of most Teflon pan. However, if you expect to see your fried eggs simply slide off the surface, you'll be sorely disappointed.

    With a little oil or butter, however, the performance is dramatically improved, but still nothing like what is shown in their infomercial. My pan version also came with a product seal on the bottom of the pan that I do not see on most other units. Strangely, this seal protrudes a fraction of an inch beyond the main bottom surface, causing the pan to wobble on a flat stove surface, such as a glass-top surface. This minor defect, however, proved to be extremely annoying as the pan wobbles side to side whenever trying to stir, flip, or mix ingredients on the stove.

    Clean-up is the only thing that proved exceptionally easy with this pan. Warm water, a little detergent, and everything wipes clean very easily. I never had any problems regardless of final conditions of the food after cooking.

    Overall, it is not worth the money but is a fairly useful and easy to clean pan.

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

    Red Copper Pan

    It is advertised as working on all stove types, but it does not work on induction stovetops. Customer service would not refund my money.
