Expert Reviews

What experts liked

The ceramic coated basket and cookie sheet set is a unique cooking tool that is ideal for preparing quick grilled or fried meals on the stove top or in the oven.
Love the size of the tray.
It is designed to cook fried foods in oven without any added fat or oil. You can easily turn your oven into a high performing Air Fryer with the Copper Crisper. The cookie sheet included snags all the drippings and grease easily leaving you perfectly fried foods without any hassle.
Another great thing about this crisper is that it comes with a non-stick ceramic coating. If you have baked food before, you must be well aware as to how difficult it can be to remove the residue of baked food from a piece of cookware. With this crisper’s non-stick coating, all you will have to do to clean it up is wipe it with a soapy sponge.​
It is the best option for the people who love baked food but at the same time are calorie conscious because the food to be cooked in this tray does not require much oil or butter to be cooked because it has a non- stick coating on it.
The design of Copper Crisper is that of an elevated mesh tray, which means the food will cook on all sides. There is no need to turn food, and little chance of one side burning. Because fat drains onto the pan below, you can make food with less calories and less fat.
The unique elevated tray is designed to let heated air pass through it and fry the items put on the non stick tray.
Also, it is dishwasher safe, so cleaning it is also just as easy.
One of the main reasons that people purchase these kinds of pans is because they can avoid using butter or oil. If you also own an air fryer, then the copper crisper is just the thing for you! It fits inside of cuisinart (and many other brands) air fryers to help you make healthier fries and similar goods.

What experts didn't like

The basket is not spacious enought for cooking large portions. Stuck on food on the cookie sheet has been reported.
I did not know that I had to soak the copper tray initially before using it.
The nonstick layer does not work well and food tends to stick.
Doesn’t come with a warranty.
Another potential “con” is that it is pretty small. When I cooked fried chicken legs, I only put 4 large drumsticks in the crisper. I probably could have squeezed a fifth leg in there, but that’s about it.
Copper Crisper works but way too small for a family size.
