What is Red Copper?

"Red Copper" is the first stage of Copper Oxide. (Cu2O)
So, is the titled 'Red Copper Pan' literally made of "Red Copper" no, not likely; however, that doesn't mean it's not legit. Copper is a malleable metal with extremely high thermal and electrical conductivity. Pure copper, without being exposed to elements, has a reddish-orange color (similar to the interior color of pan). For decades copper has been used as an excellent conductor for electricity in the form of wiring. Now the As Seen on TV company is suggesting its use in cooking has untapped benefits.

Features

  • Non-stick

    Ceramic in the special coating of this product provides a non-stick quality that covers the entire cooking surface. Food will slide right off no matter how sticky or burnt it may be.

  • Damage Resistant

    Copper infusion adds to the strength and resiliency of this pan. It is guaranteed not to scratch and has been demonstrated to withstand excessive amounts of physical abuse.

  • Lightweight

    The materials used in the construction of the Red Copper Pan result in an extremely lightweight product. This characteristic can become especially useful when handling the hot cookware in tight or awkward areas, as are often found in the kitchen.

  • Superior Heat Conduction

    One of the most appealing aspects of cooking with copper is the unrivaled heat conduction capabilities that ensures even temperatures throughout its surface. Additionally, when copper is used as opposed to other traditional cookware metals, objects can withstand even oven temperatures. This gives the item an entirely new use as a handled oven pan.

Made with 100% Pure Copper

Infomercials don't lie, they may stretch the truth by allowing you to assume or believe things that aren't true; however, lies cannot be used to sell a product. The As Seen on TV company claims the pan is made with 100% Pure Copper; that means it is. How much copper is used in the pan is unknown. It is also not known if the use of copper in the pan has any positive benefit. If used expertly, the pan will perform just as claimed; however, if you are considering the purchase only because of the use of 100% pure copper, read between the lines.

Copper Effects Taste

Copper cookware is reactive with alkaline or acidic foods. When cooking in copper, such foods may acquire a metallic taste or receive grey streaks when copper compounds are transferred to the food.
But wait! Copper requires regular polishing and maintenance; furthermore, it is extremely expensive. Put these facts together and you will quickly realise that while there is pure copper in this pan, it cannot be considered Copper Cookware; thus will not possess the same risks, effects, or benefits of true copper cookware.

PFOA and PTFE

Red Copper Pan does not use Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) or Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) . PFOA is chemical used in the process of making PTFE, a substance which provides a non-stick surface. PFOA is a chemical formerly used in the production of DuPont Teflon® and other non-stick coatings. It was recommended for discontinuation by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) after studies revealed it causes developmental and other adverse effects in laboratory animals. PTFE, in itself, does not pose health concerns unless made using PFOA. PTFE continues to be safely produced and sold under the Brand name Teflon.

Non-Stick Coating

Every non-stick pan contains a non-stick coating. No pan, regardless of its material, possess natural non-stick properties. This coating is often kept secret; as if it were made public, pans could easily be compared and duplicated. No one knows the exact properties which formulate the non-stick coating in the Red Copper Pan; other than it contains a ceramic coating. Ceramic coatings are not created equal; however, generally, the thicker the coating is, the more durable and long-lasting it will be.

Durability

The copper pan's spokeswoman boats about how durable the Red Copper Pan is; however, we remain sceptical. Common sense must prevail to affirm the belief that a pan which cost $19.99 cannot possibly be the most durable pan ever created.
You would never use a blender in any of your current frying pans. Your mother was right when she told you to not use metal utensils in a non-stick pan. Non-stick coatings can scratch and fade over time; the use of metal utensils will accelerate this process. Regardless of how durable a pan is claimed to be, it's life will be extended if it's cared for.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Does it Need Special Cleaning?

    No, the Red Copper pan is entirely dishwasher safe. The need for special cleaning products is not a concern for this item.

  • Are Harmful Materials in It?

    No, this product is verified to be free of potentially dangerous chemicals like pfoa and ptfe. Additionally, the pan will not flake into or otherwise contaminate the food.

  • Are There Order Options?

    Yes, there are multiple package options when ordering a Red Copper pan. The main choice is to receive either a single pan or for an additional price get two ten inch pans plus a, eight inch copper infused cutting knife. Purchasers of either option then have the choice to add an additional copper / ceramic coating to each pan, a twelve inch pan and/or a ventilated glass lid for the original ten inch item.

  • Are Any Bonuses Included?

    Yes, each ten inch pan comes with a specially prepared cookbook. The book has been compiled to specifically feature recipes for use with the pan. Two books will arrive if the customer decides to take the doubling offer.

Infomercial

The video for this item begins with a woman presenting the pan as her alternative to old-style cookware that is prone to scratches and other issues. She continues by demonstrating the various qualities that makes the pan superior to the previously mentioned alternatives and guarantees that it will never scratch. The pan is shown surviving some stress tests, like a fork and even a truck, before leading to a demonstration of how even the stickiest of foods will slide right off the surface. Further benefits are explored, such as being able to bake with it, not needing oils for lubrication and being able to prepare food right on the surface without the fear of causing damage. Final highlights include health related benefits, followed by a revealing of the bonus cookbook and the two-pan plus a knife offer.

Spokeswoman

Cathy Mitchell is not new to the As Seen on TV scene. She first appeared in the early 90s promoting her 'Snackmaster' sandwich-maker machine. In 2014 she hit the big time with the success of her Dump Cakes, Dump Dinners and Crock Pot Dump Meals line of cook books. So who is she? Does she have creditability? Yes, as much credibility as any other TV Sales person. Cathy has promoted dozens of products over the years. She is good at what she does; she convinces the public they need a particular item to increase their quality of life.

Shipping Time

"Shipping MAY take 3-6 weeks."

One of the biggest gripes with ordering direct from TV commercials is the extended shipping times. This pan is no different. Whether you order online or via the 1-800 number you can expect to wait. The Official Sales Page states shipping MAY take 3-6 weeks. The key word there is may. By using this vague statement, it allows the company between 1 and 42 days to ship your order to you before you can even consider it 'late'.

Furthermore, the vague shipping statement doesn't even guarantee that you will receive it within a maximum of42 days. By carefully reading the claim again you realize that it essentially tells you nothing whatsoever.

But wait, there's more... some customers have reported receiving their order within 1 week! This means their claimed shipping time statement tells you nothing. All you can be certain of is you will receive your purchase.

The only accurate way of knowing when your order has been shipped is by paying attention to your credit card statement. Your card will not be charged until the order has been shipped.

Alternatives: Online Stores, Amazon, and E-Bay Sellers typically ship faster than the official sales page; however, usually cost a little more as well. If it's available at a local store in your area, buy it there to avoid any shipping time gamble.

Confusing Sales Pages

As Seen on TV products thrive on impulsive sales. The most common occurrence consists of a potential customer witnessing a commercial and impulsively rushing to order the product as quickly as possible. This usually results in incorrectly placed orders due to confusing sales pages, customer service representatives, or simply researching the product after they have already placed their order.

If you find yourself in a situation where you placed an incorrect order, you should telephone Red Copper's Customer Service after 24 hours at 1-800-280-5424. Be prepared to provide your phone number, e-mail address, last name, and zip code. Note that it takes a full 24 hours for their customer service section to have access to your order information; thus, if you contact a customer service rep, before 24 hours has past, you will likely be told nothing can be done for 24 hours.

IF you do not have any luck with the Customer Service Department all is not lost. Remember your Credit Card is not charged until the order is shipped which may take 3 to 6 weeks; thus simply contact your Credit Card provider and request they block payment on the order.

30 Day Guarantee

Good News: Satisfaction is 100% Guaranteed!
Bad News: Shipping Fees are not Refundable.

The Shipping cost for 1 x 10" Pan is $7.99. If it were to cost you the same amount to return the pan ($7.99) you would essentially have lost a total of $15.98 which is not refundable. This amount increases with the more you order.

If all you ordered is 1 x 10" pan, it's probably not worth your time or money to return it and request a refund.

Not worth it. Everything I cook in it turns pan brown especially bacon, ham. With what it would cost to ship it back and pay shipping for new one. I guess I just live with my mistake.

RED COPPER is a SCAM

I've only used my Red Copper Pan four times and it is impossible to clean. Even after seasoning the pan, everything sticks to it! I've tried soaking, scrubbing and running it through the dishwasher, but nothing works. There is so much gook baked on it that I can't use it anymore. The food tastes disgusting as well.

The Red Copper Pan does not perform as advertised. It is a scam, a complete rip off. I've noticed the red copper youtube site has turned off comments, because so many people are complaining about this piece of Junk.

Their life time replacement program is equally a joke. They want $8.99 for shipping to send you a new pan ( that is as equally defective as the old ), plus the cost of sending it to them in fairfield, new jersey, which is also $8.99. That's what I payed for this piece of crap! They don't stand behind the product, because it is Junk

If I could give this pan a no star rating I would. Horrible rip off product and zero customer service.

Yes it does stick and scratch. If something is burnt, it is nearly impossible to clean off. Wish I had reseached it before buying.

Pan is Warped Works Ok

I bought the 10" red copper fry pan at big lots for $19.99. When I got the pan home I noticed that the bottom was warped and it rocks on my glass-topped stove. I seasoned the pan and cooked eggs without any grease and they stuck. I tried it the next day with grease and it didn't stick at all. The ad on TV is misleading, they tell you that you don't have to grease the pan. I'm considering returning the pan.

Been using the pan for a couple of weeks. So far I really like it. It does scratch a bit but my problem is that it doesn't sit flat on my ceramic stovetop and so the center gets hotter tan the rest of the pan and sticks a bit. Has anyone else had a problem with their pan warping?

This is a fine cooking utensil and as long as you have a truckload of them, your pan will always look brand new! After whipping up an omelet, chock full of stainless steel nuts and bolts, just whip out another brand new Red Copper Pan and you won't even have any troublesome clean up problems, just like on TV

Yes, it does. Once you use soap and water just wipe a little oil in it and heat it up. It's just like a cast iron skillet process. All in all it is worth buying. I use it all time.

I have something to say!

So, after carefully reading, it appears as if some customers just did not follow instructions properly on seasoning the pan, like old fashioned steel pans needed seasoning. I'm a big fan of poached eggs, and was wondering if the flavors mentioned may transfer from the pan to the eggs. I would not like that at all.

No they do not. This pan is ceramic coated so copper taste will not transfer.
