Copper Chef Wins 2018 Product Of The Year USA Award
The Copper Chef 9.5” Deep Dish Square Pan has been voted by consumers as the 2018 “Product of the Year” in the cookware category. This award bestowed by Product of the Year USA represents the nation’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation and is the result of over 40,000 consumer votes submitted online.
Copper Chef cookware is the #1 best-selling brand of copper cookware in America to date. Copper Chef cookware is offered exclusively to retailers and consumers through leading innovation company Tristar Products, Inc.
The Copper Chef 9.5” Square Pan was the first product introduced in the Copper Chef line of branded cookware. The innovative square shape design creates 25% more cooking space as opposed to the same size round pan. Advanced Cerami-Tech Non-Stick Technology means no butter or oil is required and clean-up is faster and easier. A built-in, stainless steel induction plate ensures rapid, even heating and 850° heat resistance takes the pan from any stovetop— including induction— and straight into the oven. The Pan is designed to replace a stock pot, rice cooker, frying pan, steamer, deep fryer, wok, and roasting pan. The 9.5” 5-pc. set includes a Deep Dish Square Pan, Tempered Glass Lid, Fry Basket, Steam & Roast Rack, plus a Copper Chef Recipe Book with recipes for every meal (including dessert) created exclusively for the Copper Chef Pan.
Supported by the largest media campaign in the cookware category consisting of tens of millions of dollars in TV and online advertising, the Copper Chef brand has sold millions of units on TV, online, and in retail stores. Multiple line extensions followed the initial success of the 9.5” deep dish square pan including a square frying pan and various cookware sets. Copper Chef collections of round pans, pizza pans, brownie pans, bake ware and other essential items including accessories and chef-created cookbooks have also been introduced. The face of the brand is former chef, culinary author and product expert Eric Theiss.
“This is truly an honor to have our Copper Chef pan named Product of the Year. I want to thank my entire team at Tristar for all of the hard work they put into building a product worthy of this award. We knew it would be the best pan out there in terms of quality, pricing, and reliability” says Keith Mirchandani, Founder and CEO of Tristar Products, Inc. “We’ve created a best-selling brand that includes a tremendous following of loyal Copper Chef customers and amazing reviews.”
The Product of the Year Award is a consumer based award operating in 42 countries to honor the best new product innovations. Every year, over 40,000 consumer votes are submitted via online study conducted by Kantar TNS, an international leader in consumer research. The 2018 award for best cookware category grants Copper Chef the exclusive rights to display the iconic red “Product of the Year” logo on all marketing and sales materials for the following two years. The seal has helped increase product trial, awareness, distribution and sales. Kantar TNS research indicates 44% of buyers are more likely to choose consumer-recommend products at the register.
“We couldn’t be happier to win this award for the 9.5” pan set because it’s really the essential cookware set for any kitchen. We’ve gotten such an overwhelmingly positive response from so many consumers. Not only can you cook more, you get the ability from just one pan to cook so many different ways,” says Norah Alberto, Director of Global Brand Communications at Tristar. “Plus, cleanup is so easy; it’s invaluable for busy families. With Copper Chef, cooking is actually fun again.”
