What reviewers liked

The aluminum core of the frypan offers excellent thermal conductivity and heat distribution, while high-temperature exterior and nonstick base & double top layers with stain resistant coating.
It has a ceramic non-stick coating that’s free of PTFE or PFOA. The pan and lid both have an ergonomic handle.
The pan is quite large, measuring 9.5 inches in diameter, and since the sides are quite high, it can hold quite a lot of food (4.5 quarts, to be precise). Luckily, there is a long handle on one side and a large, comfortable helper handle on the other, so lifting the pan shouldn’t be a problem, even when it’s full of food.
Copper chef cookware has a surface made of non-stick ceramic technology. This makes it difficult for fats or oil to stick to its surface. Its maintenance and cleanliness, therefore, becomes a lot easier.

What reviewers didn't like

The price point is on the high end.
A few copper chef fry pan reviews state that the non-stick surface isn’t as long lasting as claimed
If you are looking for a pan with a shallow pan, for example, for making pancakes or omelets, then this might not be the best option for you since this pan has a deep interior space.
However, like with every other Copper Chef product, you should take special care not to wear it off, especially with metal utensils.
The non-stick feature is also not fully functional. You might have to add a bit of oil to avoid it sticking.
Care needs to be taken to keep it seasoned or non-stick will stop working. Some trouble in getting water to boil quickly.
- Cozzy
You cannot use it with temperatures above 800-degrees.
A few reviewers mention that the pan’s non-stick material fades after a long period of time such as a few months or so.
Learning curve in their use.
The ceramic coating can easily get scratched
The base isn’t made out of pure cooper.
But while copper is indeed a much better conductor than aluminum, they really don’t tell you how much copper it is “infused” with; because of the low price of Copper Chef it’s likely a fairly small amount that serves more for decoration.
