Copper Chef Wins 2018 Product of the Year
The Copper Chef 9.5-inch Deep Dish Square Pan was voted by consumers as the 2018 Product of the Year in the cookware category. The award is bestowed by Product of the Year USA, which represents the largest consumer-voted award for production innovation; more than 40,000 consumers submitted votes online in the 2018 awards.
The Copper Chef 9.5-inch Square Pan was the first product introduced in the Copper Chef line of branded cookware owned by Tristar Products Inc. The innovative square shape design creates 25% more cooking space as opposed to the same size round pan. The Pan is designed to replace a stock pot, rice cooker, frying pan, steamer, deep fryer, wok, and roasting pan. Multiple line extensions followed the initial success of the 9.5-inch deep dish square pan including a square frying pan and various cookware sets.
