Crisper Tray is a revolutionary crisping and cooking tray that prevents foods from burning to the bottom or sticking. This design is safe to use with any metal utensils. Any scratching will not chip the surface content. What's more, the unit is flame-proof up to 500 degrees so you can cook with it in your oven on high, use an open flame from a grill, and more. When done, rest assured it is dishwasher safe.

Combines non-stick ceramic with strong titanium to give you a strong finished product.
- No Oils
You do not need to use oil or butter when cooking “fried” foods so you end up with fewer calories and less fat.
- Proprietary Design
The Gotham Steel Crisper Tray uses what the company calls Ti-cerama non-stick technology. This is a unique mixture of the two main types of non-stick technology, designed to make it very strong. With this strength, you get a higher temperature resistance, the ability to use metal utensils on it, and the ability to wash it in the dishwasher.
- Scratch Proof
The scratch proof surface material makes it a safer unit for the household. Cheaper trays or pans have a coating on top. It is this coating which scratches, chips, or peels off if you use a metal utensil on it. Removing foods with, for example, a metal spatula can cause the harmful coating to chip into your food. Crisper trays’ protective coating does not do this so you never have to worry about particles getting into your food.
- No More Burning
Food will no longer stick and burn to the bottom of your trays. Normally when you try to make things like mozzarella sticks, chicken wings, or fries, these fried foods when prepared in the oven stick to the bottom. They burn and tear when you try to serve them. This unit purportedly stops that from happening.
The two units are detachable. That means that you can cook with either or both at the same time. If you do not already have a good, non-stick cooking tray, this is a nice way for you to obtain one of decent quality.
The non-stick nature does not mean that everything will slide out or off the two units. All non-stick products have an element of non-stick to them, which means it is easier for you to get your foods off the trays without having to first coat the trays. You might still have to scrap away at food particles that stick to the tray, but it will be easier compared to other products.
- Mind the Temperature
Bear in mind that anything which is non-stick likely has harmful plastics contained therein. The reason for the heat setting on this and similar products is that anything higher will cause the harmful plastic elements to be released into the air. Pay attention to this warning and abide by it.
While the description does contain the word “copper”, like all the other products among the Gotham Steel Copper line, it is not 100% copper. Do not be fooled into thinking that you are getting a real, authentic copper product for a cheap price. These are only coating with copper. Like most cheaper metals, they are manufactured in a steel metal and then dipped into liquid copper so that the entire unit is coated with the copper.
Doing so allows the company to describe it as “Copper” without violating any laws. However, know that these are not copper all the way through, like authentic copper cookware.
Authentic copper cookware is decidedly more expensive and meant for more professional uses. This does not influence the effectiveness or reliability of the crisper, but there are no remarks or clarifications offered on the website, so it can mislead customers.
If you do not already have a baking tray and fryer, this can save you money. Compared to most air fryers, this is easier to use, easier to clean, and smaller by design. Using less power than air fryers, this also reduces the money you would spend on electricity. What’s more, if you truly do use it without any oils or butters for cooking, you save yourself money on the oils and butters that you normally use to make things non-stick.
This unit saves time insofar as cleaning up is concerned. With this tray, the underside pan is detachable. It is also meant to catch any drippings that fall after you have cooked your food. As such, when cooking, any oils that would otherwise fall to the bottom of your oven and burn are caught. So when you are done cooking, you can detach the two pieces and place them straight in the dishwasher. Overall it saves you time you would otherwise spend trying to scrub out your oven. The size of this unit means you can actually make two steaks and four burgers at the same time. This amount of room means you can cook for big families or parties in less time.
How It Works
The elevated cooking rack keeps your foods elevated so that air circulates around the entire thing, not just the top. As such, it cooks evenly around all sides. You can even place the cook rack on a grill up to 500 degrees and watch as it grills your vegetable side dishes. Use it to make fish and chips in one unit, burgers and steaks, strips of bacon. Potato chips, pigs in a blanket, pizza rolls, French fries, fried chicken, bruschetta, even potato chips are now easier to cook than ever.
One of the biggest selling points for this unit is that it is a healthier alternative. Reason being, you do not need to add oils or butter in order to get the foods to fry. It is important to understand that this in and of itself only means your food has the potential to be healthier.
Rather than deep frying a mozzarella stick, you can cook it in the oven. Note that no matter what you add or do not add, you are not actually frying your foods. As such, you will get a cooked look and taste, but not that of fried foods. What’s more, you have complete control over what you add or what you prepare with your foods. Nothing stops you from putting oils or butter on top of your foods, making them less healthy. Likewise, certain foods, no matter how they are prepared, are still not the healthiest for you. So using this in hopes that fried chicken and mozzarella sticks will be healthy is going to disappoint.
