Copper Chef XL 11" Casserole 5 pc Set & Induction Cooktop (Casserole 5pc Set with Copper Induction Cooker)

Copper Chef XL 11" Casserole 5 pc Set & Induction Cooktop

This 6-in-one pan and countertop cooker have everything you need for compact cooking with low heat risk!

The square baking pan and induction cooktop in the Copper Chef XL 11" Casserole 5 pc Set & Induction Cooktop are a simple way to do just about anything you want when there isn't a stove available.

Who is it good for?

It's perfect for a dorm room or to add a bit of culinary elegance to your expanding kitchen, induction cookers are hot, even though they're not hot to the touch. They use magnetic induction (similar to the technology of a microwave) to warm up food - this can be safer than a hot plate because once the pot is removed, the cooking surface returns to being cool to the touch.

What's the square shape for?

The square shape of the pan makes it deep and great for cooking - it is your wok, Dutch oven, rice steamer, pot, and pan in one!

Not sure how to start?

There's a great cookbook to help you out with using this Copper Chef XL pan.

Features:

  • The set comes with induction cooktop, pot with lid, fry basket and steam basket.
  • The pan has 5-layer construction, including a polished ceramic double top layer, A non-stick ceramic base layer, an aluminum central core, an exterior coat designed to withstand high temps, and a stainless steel base for induction cooking.
  • Wattage of cooktop is 1300.
  • Bake, fry, boil, broil, and steam without oil or butter, thanks to the non-stick technology.
  • 7-quart capacity
  • Comes with cookbook full of easy recipes to try
  • Heat-resistant to 850 degrees and can be used in both the oven and on the stove. It can even be used over a fire!
  • The induction cooker has 5 presets, timer, and a digital display
  • Dishwasher safe
  • PTOE and PFOA free

Conclusion

When it comes to small kitchens, gourmet upgrades, and all-in-one meal systems, this is a fantastic pick!

There are many different groups that this particular pot and cooktop are perfect for. The one-pot meal group that consists of busy individuals who like to cook once and eat many times, the student who doesn't have room for a stove in their dorm room or budget to eat out, and the aspiring gourmet who needs to discover for themselves the versatility of induction cooking all come to mind.

Is that all?

Really, with the versatility of a single pot and the small cooktop, this stows easily and can be an asset in any kitchen, taking up about the same space as an Instapot or a coffee machine. If you're looking for versatility, safety, innovation, or simplicity, this pot and cooker fit the bill on all counts.

PROS:
  • Lightweight pan is large enough to feed a family.
  • Induction Cooktop can be used anywhere with a power outlet and is safer than a hot plate.
  • Pan can be used for six different cooking types and is large enough for a substantial one-pot meal.

CONS:
  • Pan requires seasoning before use to maintain non-stick abilities
  • Plastic or silicone utensils are best to prevent scratching

Buyer’s Guide on How To Choose the Perfect Set

 The mass of sets opens a great perspective to choose from but where to start?

First of all, decide if you want to buy every item separately or just order a set. For example. if you are fond of Chinese cuisine there is a reason to buy wok which is not included in any “standard” set. But if you prefer to cook plain food go for the popular cookware.

The other thing to keep in mind is your family size. In case you are a pair of cooing newly-weds – there is no need in buying more than 5 basic items. You’ll eat out most of the time, anyways.

At the same time, a family of 5 or more people may need 10 piece set and is likely to buy more separately.

About the Copper Chef Brand: What Makes Them Special and Worth a Best Copper Chef Review?

 Yeah! What's the deal with Copper Chef?

You probably know Copper Chef as seen on TV. The Cerami-Tech nonstick technology is shown to slip anything from burnt cheese to eggs to muffins off the surface with ease.

These pans offer a number of great features:

  • Induction cooking design

This cookware has an aluminum plate designed for induction-based heat transfer. It can work on any style of cooktop, in an oven, and even on an induction stove, which uses fluctuations in magnetic field instead of heat to warm the cookware and the food inside.

This means that the cooktop is cool to the touch the moment that you take it off the heating element.

  • Ceramicoat Nonstick technology:

This copper-infused ceramic works by filling the micropores with a high-heat oil. As long as you continue to season the surface and don't scratch it with metal utensils, the nonstick capabilities will continue to last for decades, just like the cast iron pans that have been passed down for generations.

  • A wide variety of items:

The company offers cookware for the stove and the oven in both round and square shapes, steamers, 6-in-one pans, bakeware, air crispers and more. They also offer steamer/roast inserts, fry baskets, utensils, cookbooks, induction cooktops, and more.

Square lids are available for almost every set of square pots. They are fitted and made of tempered glass for safety and visibility. They are great for protecting from splatter and keeping things warm and from spilling during transport.

Never clean your grill again! These grill mats are made of a thin, flexible material that makes them easy to place anywhere. They can stand up to high heat and transfer it evenly to the food being cooked when you place them over the grill's surface.

Those are some great options!

Electric Tools

  What plug-in electric tools does company make?

The Copper Chef egg cooker tool works by circulating steam around the eggs to cook them anywhere from soft-boiled to hard-boiled. It fits up to 10 eggs at a time. It works quickly and prevents cracking from boiling eggs moving in vigorous water.

If you don't have a stovetop, you can still cook next to any electrical outlet with the electric skillet by Copper Chef. Best of all, it offers the same nonstick capabilities of other Copper Chef pans.

The Copper Chef electric griddle offers a fry-on griddle top which is wonderful for pancakes, sausage, and burgers.

Copper Chef induction cooktops work via magnetic field fluctuation. The cooktop stays cool to touch but when used with an induction pan, this can cook hot enough to sear and cool enough to melt a chocolate chip without changing its shape.

Wow, all that technology with just an outlet!

Pour in your favorite ingredients and place them in the Copper Chef omelet maker for a quick, countertop-based meal. This is fantastic for buffet stations.

Knives by Copper Chef

 Does Copper Chef make knives, too?

Absolutely! These stainless steel blades have innovative, ergonomic designs, thoughtful features like cutouts to protect food from sticking to the knife when sliced, and the iconic copper color.

The Copper Chef knife set of 3 is made to mince, slice, and cut. It includes a serrated bread knife with a forked tip, a paring knife, and a chef's chopping knife.

Wow! Knives that look as sharp as they cut!

Several kitchen sets by Copper Chef include knives and utensils.

Copper Chef Directions for Use and Cleaning

For best results, follow these tips:

  • Season your cookware before the first use. Get a high-heat oil like corn, soy, canola, or peanut oil and spread it lightly and evenly on the cookware.
  • Bake it in the oven at 375 degrees in the middle rack for one hour. Let it fully cool before removing it (this lets the pores in the nonstick suck in the oil as the metal contracts during the cooling process). Wipe it down and put it away.
  • Try to always wipe down your cookware without soap when possible. After a few months, soap will break down the nonstick properties unless you re-season the cookware. If you notice the food starting to stick, you can season it again anytime. If something does stick, a rubber or plastic scraper can get it off without risking the coating.
  • Avoid metal utensils as they will scratch the nonstick coating.
  • Induction properties work by heat or magnetic field distribution. Convection fans, which circulate air, won't let you get an even cook through the induction heat distribution process. It's better to use top and bottom heat without a fan when using these pots and pans.

Weight and Portability

Are these pieces light or heavy?

Many of the cookware pieces from Copper Chef feel deceptively light. This is because they are made of aluminum, a metal that is thin and that conducts heat (and magnetic fields in induction cooking) rather well. Aluminum that is thin and light can still be strong; it is used in items like airplanes for just this purpose.

The pieces are somewhat stackable. The portability of the cookware depends a lot on the size and shape of pot you need. However, one advantage of the large, deep, square pots is that they offer six kinds of cooking ability in one portable pot.

Design

What design features does this cookware and bakeware offer?

While these pieces are all very functional, they're also very pretty. Copper Chef offers two main design lines- the round pieces that model common sizes and shapes of traditional cookware and the square line that offers some whimsy, some multipurpose functionality, and a bold style that is appealing to many.

This style also has a function, however. Square cooking surfaces offer 25% more space in the same basic footprint. When cooking foods like bacon, it allows you to utilize the whole pan space. All the pieces come in the attractive copper color that has given the company its name.

Stylish and useful?

Copper Chef Recipes

 Does Copper Chef offer recipes?

Copper Chef offers a lot of different recipe options on their website, and they also offer a cookbook that comes with several of the sets for sale. Some of the recipe options we personally recommend include:

  • Pretzel-coated porkchops: Fried pork chops without the guilt or health hazard
  • BBQ Chip crusted skirt steak: Tender and crunchy, tangy and sweet!
  • Pesto Pizza: Green and savory
  • Grilled Eggplant Stacks: A healthy vegetarian delight
  • Grilled Strawberry Shortcake: An unexpected take on a classic.

Safety Tips

What are the safety tips to know with these pieces?

Safety is paramount when dealing with any hot items. A few things to consider:

  1. Induction cookers are not designed to be all-day slow cookers, please do not use them this way.
  2. To avoid breaking or warping, don't put ice-cold water on hot pans or lids. Instead, wait until they are cool enough to touch before you begin washing. (The burnt on food will still come off, promise!)
  3. Never leave electrical cookers plugged in while unattended.
  4. This probably goes without saying, but food cooked with an induction stove will be hot, and so will the pan its cooked in, even if the cooktop is cool after the food is done.

Warranty

Does the company have a warranty?

There are a few things to say about the warranty here that can be a bit confusing. First, there are two levels of warranty when you buy. Copper Chef has one, and the distributor may offer a second (if you've seen satisfaction guaranteed promises on TV, for example, that's a distributor promise and not a manufacturer promise.) So, if something goes wrong, here are the places you can look for money and/or replacements:

The company offers a lifetime guarantee on the coating, saying it won't peel, chip, or blister with regular home use. This last sentence is important because metal utensil use is not considered normal home use. The rest of the pieces are guaranteed for 60 days. You must call the company to get this warranty met.

Who else can help with the warranty?

Call the store or online distributor company you bought from and see if they offer additional purchase protection.

Check your payment processor. Some credit cards and companies like PayPal offer satisfaction guarantees. Check what's covered and you may be eligible for a refund.

FAQ

What cookware is good for a small kitchen?

If your storage space is limited, the deeper, square pans can work as fry pans, saucepans, woks, rice cookers, and more. They even offer deep fry basket and steamer accessories to make them even more versatile.

Do I need an induction stovetop to use this cookware?

Nope! They will work on any kind of stove and oven. They're even able to withstand the heat of a fire, but that will void your warranty as it's not included in normal home use.

Final Verdict

Copper Chef XL 11How did the Best Copper Chef Review turn out?

Wow! There are so many great products to choose from with a lot of different purposes. It's hard to pick just one. It's likely that many people would choose different favorites from this list, as they don't all do the same job. That said, it falls upon us to choose a favorite, so here we go... but first, a little about our rankings.

We had to look at a number of different factors to choose a favorite when looking at such a varied list of popular items. Every one of the items on this list has a very high number of positive reviews from Amazon and offers similar things like warranty protection, so those things were a wash. What we considered instead include:

  • Cost: This is a combination of value per number of items and overall price tag.
  • Versatility: Does this set do one specific thing or can you cook a lot of different things with it?
  • Completeness: Which items require the fewest number of additional things to work?
  • Durability to the most people: Can everyone use it? Can everyone fit it in their kitchen?

While other factors could be considered, because the company is the same with every item on the list, there was not a large amount of difference in many other things.

And our favorite, all-around Copper Chef cookware set is Copper Chef XL 11" Casserole 5 pc Set.

This set has probably the most versatile piece of cookware in the whole set. It comes with an induction cooktop, making it even more useful when you don't have a kitchen or when you have a big meal and a full stovetop.

It comes with a recipe book, which can help to remove some of the concern. A lid, steamer insert and fry basket complete the kit. This makes it useful for all kinds of cooking, from a stovetop coffee cake or bread to rice, soup, or a roast. You can even fry bacon and eggs on the flat bottom.

It's lower price than a full set, complete enough to work with or without a kitchen, and offers new recipes to try. The XL sized pot is also big enough to feed a family or cook a holiday meal.

Thanks for reading! What was your favorite?

    Great article, I have enjoyed it and learned a lot.
    By the way, I'm interested in this product (Copper Chef 9.5" Deep Square Pan 6-Piece Set).
    You have mentioned that It's like all other copper products, that it needs seasoning in order to keep its nonstick capability.
    What kind of seasoning would you recommend to achieve that result?
