Product Review – Red Copper Pans
Okay, I confess… I am a sucker for a good infomercial!
I can not tell you how many nights I have stayed up way past my bedtime watching them.
I watch the TV stations that sell you stuff, which is essentially infomercials.
I find myself wondering down the “As Seen on TV” aisles at the store.
I admit it… but I also know that I am not alone… if I were they would not be the multi-million dollar sales generators that they are.
Today I am not going to tell you about all the stuff I have purchased over the years, ranging from blankets to kitchen gadgets… today I want to tell you about my experience with my latest purchase. Red Copper Pans.
I bet you have seen them advertised… how could you not they seem to be on every few minutes… or at least them or one of their competitors. I have seen this commercial so many times I feel like Kathy Mitchell, the spokeswoman, is going to show up at our next family function.
Handsome Hubby has seen me stop on this infomercial so many times that he finally got so sick of watching the infomercial that he ordered me a set. Ya thats right… a SET!! Am I totally spoiled or what… BUT WAIT THERES MORE… he also got me the red copper knife and a glass lid with it!! Heck ya!!
What a wonderful surprise this was… and now I no longer make him watch the commercial so it’s a win-win for us both.
So now it’s your turn to admit it… you are curious if they work as they say….
Well here is the scoop….
They advertises that you can use metal utensils right in the pan…. and you CAN. However, their instructions say that “for best performance use only wooden or plastic cooking utensils” Now I know this will disappoint some people but I am ok with it because I would do that anyway… but I will not deny that it gives me a sense of peace to know that if by come chance a metal fork or spatula is used that I am not going to have to buy a new pan.
Another interesting fact that is NOT mentioned in the infomercial is that “for best performance” before you use them you should “season” your skillet. In fact, “for best performance” this should be done twice a year. I know for a fact that will deter some buyers… because for years and years I avoided buying/using cast iron skillets because of my fear of having to “season” them. I do want to mention that there are 5 easy instructions on how to do it… and when I say easy, I mean easy… so if you are like I was and feared having to season skillets, do not let that deter you because Red Copper makes it so easy that you wont even mind.
Have I done everything they have advertised? No, but I never had the intention of brutalizing my cookware like they do in the commercials. After all, why would I need to roll around metal nuts and bolts in my pans… and I have never had the need or desire to drive over my pans with my car…. What I can tell you is this… I have been using them in many meal and desert preparations over the past few weeks… regardless of whether I cooked, baked, broiled, fried, or sautéed, each time nothing has stuck to the pan AND it is very easy to clean. In fact, because nothing sticks to it… it is the easiest pan I have ever cleaned!!
The only negative I would say isn’t that big of a deal… it’s just that the recipe book that comes with the pans wasn’t much help for a gluten free / Celiac cooker. But really.. to me that is not an issue at all. What I like is the performance and as they say “everything slides right out”
Let me also mention, I have also taken this pan out to cook meals in our RV… it was wonderful because we were in a state park that did not have “sewer hookups” which will make sense to any fellow RV enthusiast out there… but let me explain for those who not. It means that your RV has to store the water you “pour” down the sink.. so if you are there for more than a day or two you have to be very conservative about how much water you use in the showers and sinks… including your kitchen sink. So having a pan that cleans up so fast and easy was AWESOME!!
I wont deny that I have been disappointed with some of my infomercial purchases in the past but this time… I have truly enjoyed this pan.
