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

    • Helena, MT,
    • Jun 22, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    My husband always laughed at me saying there would never be a pan I couldn't ruin. I cook a lot, and he loves my cooking, but it seems like every couple of years we are buying new pans. Finally, a pan that will probably outlive me. I love my Red Copper Pans. When food starts to stick, I just season the pans as recommended.

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

    Poor performance

    • New York, NY,
    • Jun 19, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    The pan did not perform as in the commercial. Food burned and everything stuck to the pan, even using Pam. This pan is the worst I've ever had. Cheaper pans held up better than this one. After food cooked in the pan, it seems coating is coming off and mixing with food, so you are ingesting the copper coating.

    Now the warranty. You have to send it back to the manufacturer with approximately $10 and then another check for a new pan and shipping. So you pay to return the pan for warranty, then pay processing and return shipping. At this rate you can go back to Bed Bath & Beyond, use a 20% off coupon and buy two pans for the same amount as the warranty of one pan.

    This is a horrible business! Good luck. If you do not understand the review, this pan is garbage and waste of money.

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

    Not for me

    I bought this pan about four months ago and used it one time and was so excited because it worked great. However, after the first time, everything began sticking to it. I hate it they are supposed to be guaranteed but I have emailed red copper many times with no response. I would never recommend this pan to anyone and will never use mine because it sticks worse than a 5 dollar pan from Walmart.

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

    Grandson burnt his cheese quesadilla

    • Kohler, WI,
    • Jun 16, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    My 10-inch skillet worked great for a year or so. I ordered two online and another one for my son in Raleigh, North Carolina. However, this morning my grandson tried to make his own cheese quesadilla. He was watching it, and I was at the kitchen table, so I don't think he left it on too long but maybe had the heat too high. Half of the pan turned black and burnt his tortilla shell.

    I thought this was maybe the first good test we put it through, but it did not pass. I scrubbed and scrubbed with hot water and cleanser after just trying to wipe it off like in the commercials. I finally tried a metal spatula, which got out some of it, but then it scrapped the copper.

    I think we will be throwing it out, but I will let my wife decide. Any ideas?

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

    Red Copper Pan

    I got my Red Copper Pan as a birthday gift and did the instruction on it, and for awhile it did work great, but by now it sucks and everything sticks in it. I wouldn't tell anyone to buy one; there are so many good sets of pots and pans out there. I'm definitely glad I only got the one.

    Terrible customer service

    This product stopped its nonstick properties after a month. I called customer service, and they told me to re-grease it and put it back in the oven. That did not work, and when I called back they told me to pay $10 send it back, and if there was a problem, they'll send me another one. I paid $20 for it, so they want me to pay half, and I might get another one. This is horrible customer service.

    Not what it claims

    I purchased the Red Copper Frying Pan and the square pan. Upon receiving them, I oiled them up and baked them as instructed. After a few uses, the pans started sticking, so I seasoned them again and again. Also, the frying pan has scratches inside the pan, the paint is coming off, and the pan is still sticking.

    I contacted customer service and was told I could send them back and pay for the shipping of new pans. Now, why would I want to pay to ship them back and pay to receive new pans? I may as well save that money and buy me some pans of good quality.

    Save your money and don't get caught up in all the hype as they are not worth it.

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

    Sub-standard

    • Saskatchewan, Canada,
    • Jun 8, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I used it twice, and sticky food never stuck, just as advertised. What the ads never mentioned is that the outside coating can't take the heat; portions flaked off both times. The product is headed for the metal recycle bin. I will stick (no pun intended) with good ol' proven Teflon.

    Bad quality

    • North Carolina,
    • Jun 8, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    This is not exactly as advertised on TV.

    Since the very first time, everything sticks horribly. You are supposed to cook not using any type of oil at all, but it did not work at all. It got scratched very easily the second time we used the pan.

    It is not true at all, and it is not worth the money you will spend on it. I was very disappointed because I really had high expectation with this product. I even wanted to return it but never got any assistance at all.

    Worst of all, I was so confident about it, that I ended purchasing two and a knife. I would not recommend anybody this product at all.

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

    I'm not sure how anyone has a negative review on this square Red Copper Pan. I've been using them for many months without a single complaint. I've fried many different types of things, and nothing sticks to it like other pans I've had. I'm looking to buy a couple more and get rid of my old pans.

    Red Copper Pan

    • Marrero, LA,
    • Jun 5, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I purchased the square deep pan with lid (9" x 9" x 4" approximately).

    It was seasoned according to instructions. I fried eggs in it, and it was a disaster; it all stuck to the pan. I scrambled eggs with bacon grease, and it still stuck somewhat to the pan. I have to scrub to clean. I fried bacon, it also sticks!

    All I will say is this pan is junk! Do not waste your money.

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