About Red Copper Square Dance Pan
With high sides that prevent grease from splashing out, Red Copper Square Dance Pan is an all-purpose pan infused with 100% real copper that promises to deliver 25% more cooking space.
On top of this, we’re told Square Dance Pan’s ceramic cooking surface won’t scratch, chip, or peel; allows you to cook without oil, butter, or grease, and is PFOA and PTFE free.
Underneath Square Dance Pan’s ceramic surface, the company tells us you’ll find an induction-ready plate that allows you to cook on any stovetop. It’s even oven-safe up to 500 degrees!
At 9.5" across and 2" deep, it’s easy to see that Red Copper Square Dance Pan might help you cook a lot of food at once. But is it worth the money? Can you expect it to deliver real-world performance for the long haul?
We’ll explore these important questions in this review.
How Does Non-Stick Cookware Work? What About Induction Cooking?
In 1938, a substance known as PTFE fluoropolymer resin was discovered by a DuPont chemist named Roy J. Plunkett.
It wasn’t until the early 1960s, though, that Teflon was applied to cookware, since it provides excellent non-stick properties in a dry, easy to apply, and relatively durable coating.
The problem is that, while Teflon is durable, it’s not impervious to damage. And over months and years of regular use, tiny particles of the non-stick coating can flake off into food.
More recently, however, many manufacturers have replaced Teflon in their cookware with ceramic coatings, which often promise to provide much of the same non-stick ability, but without the health concerns.
We’ll talk more about the ceramic found on Red Copper Square Dance Pan in a moment, but before we do, let’s talk about one more thing: induction.
Instead of using an open flame or a hot coil, induction cooktops use magnets to generate heat directly inside cookware, which then transfers to food. Most users also report more even heat distribution and faster heating times.
The bad news is that you need induction-specific cookware (like Square Dance Pan) to use an induction cooktop or a naturally magnetic material like cast iron.
Sounds good, right? But how much will you pay for Red Copper Square Dance Pan’s ceramic and induction features?

While we found it worked exactly as advertised soon after arriving, after several uses and washes (including a cycle through the dishwasher), we learned that Red Copper Pan lost almost all of its non-stick ability and didn’t perform very well without some oil, butter, or grease.
Based on nearly 100 reader reviews for Red Copper Pan, it seems that many customers experienced much of the same, giving it an average rating of 2.3 stars.
Now, perhaps the manufacturer addressed this issue with the Square Dance Pan, but we’ll have to wait until feedback starts rolling in to be sure.
Speaking of which, Red Copper Square Dance Pan is brought to you by Telebrands, the largest company in the ASOTV industry, who seems to have a mixed reputation with many of their other products, including recent hits like Lazer Bond, Grass Shot, Smart Swab, and more.
In 2015, the company was also investigated by the NJ Attorney General’s office for allegedly violating the Consumer Fraud Act, which was eventually settled for $550K after admitting no wrongdoing.
Will Red Copper Square Dance Pan Have You Dancing With Excitement?
If you enjoy food, whipping up a delicious meal in the comfort of your home can be invigorating. And it’s even better if you can do this while cooking with less oil, butter, or grease, or without worrying about potential health consequences.
However, as we discussed above, while some customers report success with the original Red Copper Pan, many also complained—and something we confirmed in our testing—that the ceramic surface quickly loses its non-stick ability, requiring you to use oil, butter, or grease.
Despite this, perhaps Square Dance Pan’s biggest benefit it that it’s shaped like a griddle with high sides, which isn’t necessarily something that’s easy to come across with the competition—not to mention the fact that its core price is much lower than a lot of other non-stick griddles on the market.
In the end, you’ll have to decide if this feature makes Red Copper Square Dance Pan’s price worthwhile, or if you should keep looking. Just remember that you could lose up to $18 is non-refundable fees if you choose the BOGO offer, plus whatever it’ll cost to ship back to the company if you’re dissatisfied.
