This copper coated frying pan with a ceramic nonstick surface is a decent choice for people who'd like to avoid potentially harmful materials. This pan also comes with a lid, which eliminates the need of finding one, but the difference in upper temperature limits make it a mismatch for the pan.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good option if you'd like to avoid potentially harmful materials
While most nonstick surfaces still contain very small amounts of PTFE, this pan uses a ceramic nonstick surface, which contains no potentially harmful materials (PTFE, PFOA, cadmium, lead, etc.).
Pro You don't have to look for a fitting lid
This pan already has a lid, so you don't have to find one that fits. This can be very difficult to do, because the size of both the lid and the pan has to be an exact match. A difference of less than an inch is often the deciding factor.
Pro Great quality lid
The lid is made of good quality materials and will outlast this pan. When, in the future, you are looking for a new pan, you can reuse this lid and save some money on your next purchase.
Pro Easy to clean
The ceramic nonstick coating of this pan can be cleaned easily. You only have to use water and non-abrasive materials.
Con The lid is a mismatch for the pan
This pan can be used in temperatures of up to 410° F (210° C) , but the lid can be used in temperatures of up to 500° F (260° C). This makes the lid feel more like an afterthought rather than an actual feature.
Con Easy to burn your hand
The handle will heat up considerably fast when used in an oven. If you are careless, you will most likely burn your hand, so make sure to use an oven mitt.
Con Easy to damage the nonstick surface
The ceramic nonstick surface is as easy to damage as any other nonstick surface. You should still avoid using metal utensils and be careful how much force you apply to the surface because it's easy to scratch and chip. You should avoid washing it in a dishwasher and putting it under running water before it's cooled down.
Con Short lifespan
This pan's ceramic coating is no different from other nonstick coatings in terms of lifespan. It will wear off over time. Depending on how you use and maintain this pan, it will serve you well from six to twelve months.
