The Red Copper Square Dance pan has received some good reviews for its smooth and good quality ceramic nonstick infused with strong copper. Many users mention how the pan heats up fast making cooking easier and quicker.

Customer reviews

Customers who have bought the Red Copper Ceramic cookware find its nonstick covering and copper ceramic combo very effective. The pan set helps to make different types of dishes with its assortment of sauce pans and frying pans.

But there are a few complaints about the pan. Many users complain about the ineffective nonstick covering which was initially good but later deteriorated very fast.

The handles get hot easily and the lid has to be used with care to avoid damage. The lack of adequate pour lip causes the contents to spill when you transfer the food from the pan.

Although the manufacturers mention that it is compatible with induction stoves, the cookware cannot be used on an induction stove.

Comparison of Red Copper Pan with Gotham Steel and Copper Chef pans

Once you have gone through the reviews of customers who have bought Red Copper Pan, you would certainly want to consider the alternative options available. While there are several nonstick pan varieties available in the market Gotham Steel and Copper Chef pans are the brands that are close competitors to Red Copper pan. All three have nonstick ceramic covering and have good heat efficiency. They are dishwasher safe and oven safe. But the similarities end here. The pans have many differences which we will see here.

Red Copper Pan Vs Gotham Steel pan

Let us see the differences between Red Copper Pan and Gotham steel first.

Construction of pan

Although the pans appear identical, they differ in the material used for their construction and in their structure.

Gotham Steel pans:  The pans are made of ceramic and titanium, which are the chief ingredients. The core of the pan is made of aluminum, while the outer covering has titanium infused ceramic nonstick coating.

Red Copper Pans: The pans are made of ceramic nonstick infused with strong copper.  The core of the pan has aluminum.

In comparison, copper is superior to titanium in the way it conducts heat. The heat from the source such as gas, electric, ceramic and glass stovetops are absorbed quickly and spread out evenly. This helps in cooking food faster and efficiently.

Cooking efficiency

Gotham Steel:  Gotham steel pans have high heat resistant temperature of 500 degrees Fahrenheit that enables faster heating and with the pan made of titanium and ceramic the heat is spread out in a balanced way ensuring better cooking efficiency.

Red Copper Pan: Red Copper pans have similar heat resistance of 500 degrees Fahrenheit making them safe for use in oven too.

But the heating efficiency of Red Copper pan is superior when compared to Gotham Steel as the pan heats up in a consistent manner due to the copper –ceramic combo. The titanium molecules are not as quick to heat and are not conducive to spreading the heat in a balanced manner.

Endorsement

Gotham Steel has celebrity chef, Daniel Green endorsing it.

Red Copper has renowned author, Cathy Mitchell endorsing it.

Red Copper pan with its copper infused nonstick ceramic and better heat efficiency is a better choice than Gotham Steel pan, which does not score well in heating efficiency and material selection.

Red Copper Vs. Copper Chef

Construction of pan

Red Copper Pan: The pans are made of ceramic nonstick infused with strong copper.  The core of the pan has aluminum.

Copper Chef pan: Copper Chef pans are made of 5 layers namely, outer double top ceramic layer, base nonstick ceramic, Aluminum core, outer high temperature resistant coating and induction base made of stainless steel.

When compared with Red Copper Pan, Copper chef with its multilayered construction is a better choice as it has dense walls and can spread heat quickly, withstand more heat and has longer life span.

Cooking efficiency

Red Copper Pan: Red Copper pans have similar heat resistance of 500 degrees Fahrenheit making them safe for use in oven too.

Copper Chef Pan: Copper Chef with its five layered build and higher heat resistance of 850 degrees is capable of heating up quickly and efficiently spreading it all over the pan.

When compared to Red Copper Pan, Copper Chef pan has a higher heat resistant capacity.

Endorsement

Red Copper has renowned author, Cathy Mitchell endorsing it

Copper Chef has Eric Theiss, a Chef and culinary expert endorsing it.

When compared to Red Copper pan, Copper Chef with its five layered build and high heat resistance is a better choice than Red Copper pan.

The Bottom Line

Red Copper pan made of premium quality nonstick ceramic infused with robust copper is definitely a great inclusion to consider for your kitchen. Its toxin free nonstick coating, sturdy construction and efficient handles make it a hassle free cookware to choose whether it is a simple omelet or an elaborate roast you are preparing. High heat resistance, which though is lesser than Copper Chef pans, is an added benefit.

The dishwasher and oven safe cookware has received more positive reviews than negative reviews. Nevertheless, you have to take the negatives into consideration, when you are choosing a nonstick pan for you kitchen.

While the As Seen on TV products look great and have spectacular advertisement and celebrity endorsement, you have to be practical when it comes to spending you hard earned money. With several cheaper and good quality alternatives available locally, you can very well choose from them and eliminate the charges towards shipping and handling and the hassle of having to deal with the customer service, which has not received good reviews as such.

Now that you know the important considerations to look for while buying a nonstick copper pan, you will be able to decide better and have your money’s worth and enjoy your cooking in more ways than one.
