With a copper-infused design and non-stick ceramic cooking surface, the “revolutionary” Red Copper Pan will help you create healthier meals without oil, butter, or grease. You also won’t have to worry about scratches, because Red Copper Pan is “guaranteed to stay scratch-free forever”!
The reality is that you can use Red Copper Pan for anything, whether on the stovetop or as a baking pan with a handle (it’s safe up to 500°), including chicken parmesan, eggs without a mixing bowl, and flambéed desserts—you can even caramelize sugar without it sticking.
Ultra tough durability. PFOA and PTFE-free non-stick surface. Scratch resistance. Healthier eating. What’s not to like about Red Copper Pan? Well, before you run out and spend your hard-earned money on it, let’s discuss a few things.
Just How “Revolutionary” Is Red Copper Pan?
Not very. Why? Because there are thousands of products out there just like Red Copper Pan. Many of them are even available locally, which we’ll talk more about soon.
Just what are these products? Basically, any non-stick pans that use a ceramic cooking surface instead of ones that contain PFOA or PTFE (otherwise known as Teflon), both of which come with some pretty serious health concerns. This is especially true when these non-stick chemicals scratch, chip, and peel and find their way into your food.
Instead, ceramic is “widely considered to be the safest and most environmentally friendly option” and is available in just about any color and style imaginable. What’s up with Red Copper Pan’s color? Is it the real deal, or just intended to fool you?
Does Red Copper Pan Contain Any Copper?
The short answer? We can’t be absolutely sure, but the commercial only mentions that it’s “copper-infused.”
If Red Copper Pan does actually contain copper—like ceramic—it’s found in thousands of other pans because it conducts heat very well, and is often the material of choice for professional cooks.
Again though, we can’t be sure if Red Copper Pan really contains copper, or if the manufacturer simply colored the cooking surface for marketing purposes.
The Health Benefits Of Red Copper Pan
Before we go any further, keep in mind that copper isn’t a perfect cooking material, because acidic foods can leach the copper from the pan and into your food.
Despite this, Red Copper Pan’s non-stick ceramic surface could help you cook using less butter, oil, and grease, leading to improved health. Remember that you’ll still probably include some of these ingredients when preparing your food, so it’s not like you’ll be completely eliminating them from your diet.
In fact, unless you eat a lot of high-calorie fried foods, Red Copper Pan probably won’t reduce your overall calorie intake enough to make a big impact on your health.
What kind of impact is Red Copper Pan having on the lives of their customers?
Red Copper Pan: Is It Love Or Anger?
Despite the lack of online reviews for Red Copper Pan, it looks like it’s just an updated version of Gotham Steel Pans. And it seems like—whether here on BrightReviews or elsewhere online—the Gotham version comes with some pretty negative feedback. What are customers saying?
Mostly, that they never received the product. This could be because the original version didn’t sell very well, so the company licensed it off to another As Seen On TV manufacturer. Then, the new company just rebranded it under a different name.
The other most common complaint was that the non-stick surface quickly stopped working. Is this what you’ll experience? Let’s bring it all together.
The Bottom Line About Red Copper Pan
Yeah, Red Copper Pan will probably provide decent non-stick, toxin-free service for at least a little while. And if you typically use a lot of butter, oil, or grease when you cook, its non-stick surface might help you eat a little healthier in the process.
But there are a lot of concerns when it comes to Red Copper Pan, mostly related to quality. Its doesn’t seem like its previous Gotham incarnation received positive reviews from customers, and we don’t know if it actually contains any copper or the thickness of its ceramic surface.
On top of this, Telebrands seems to have a mixed reputation for providing quality products and customer service—or at least high enough quality to give you a solid return on your investment.
In the end, since one Red Copper Pan will cost you $27.98 (you can get a second for an addition $7.99 S&H), your money and your time might be better spent on nearly identical, but perhaps much higher quality, options from retailers near you.
