Is the Red Copper Pan All Hype?
Anyone that has watched even the slightest amount of cooking shows on TV has probably seen commercials for the Red Copper Pan. After purchasing it myself and using it for a couple weeks, I think I’m ready to give my two cents about this thing, and really see if it lives up to the hype.
For the too long didn’t read version, let’s just say that this is probably one of the best non-stick pans out there for this price range. Even after everything I’ve thrown at it, I still can’t even make a mark. I read some reviews online about people have a bad experience with this cooking pan, but it turns out most of them weren’t even using it correctly. I also use metal utensils for the most part – still no marks. I haven’t tested it against the extremes like using a crazy gas stove to heat it up, but it does seem more solidly built than pans that I’ve bought from retail stores in the past.
Clean up rarely ever requires any more work than just wiping with a wet rag after it has cooled down. That’s basically it when it comes to cleaning up, but sometimes I still throw it in the dishwasher every once in a while, just for the extra sanitation. The non-stick surface seems very durable since I haven’t been able to make a dent in it, cooking with eggs and seasonings was no match for this pan. In fact, I’m actually interested in knowing if there is some food combination out there that would stick to this surface after being cooked.
Who knows, maybe one day I’ll cook with the heat too high and be able to burn something on there. Until then, I still highly recommend not only this particular pan, but all the other cooking pans that they have in their arsenal.
