Copper Chef Reviews the Tools Any Beginning Needs to Start Cooking Like a Pro

You’ve moved out of mom and dad’s home and have officially exhausted your taste for ramen and fast food. It’s about time that you learned how to cook like any adult who wants to survive should. Well, we’re here to help. There are a number of great products out there that were made for people like you. Every top of the line has humble beginnings of burning their first piece of toast or boiling out of all their water from the pot. It happens, but what you have that they didn’t is this list of handy tools that Copper Chef will review for the beginner chef.

Chef’s Knife
Every good (and bad) chef needs a good knife. A solid chef’s knife can cut through anything and is hands down the quintessential tool needed in the kitchen. From slicing to dicing, a chef’s knife will become your best friend. While you can always upgrade to a better, more industrial one, you can find a good stainless steel chef’s knife at any restaurant supply store. Be sure to pick up a good cutting board too while you are there.

Measuring Spoons
Eye-balling ingredients is not an inherited trait. Just because you watched your parents do it while they cooked does not necessarily mean you will be able to do it too. To avoid adding too much oil or not enough salt, Copper Chef suggests getting measuring spoons to add to your kitchen. These handy tools make it easy to measure out all of your necessary ingredients. Be sure to get two sets: one for dry ingredients and one for wet ingredients.

Pots and Pans
Hands down one of the most important tools that a chef can have is a good set of pots and pans. While some prefer to go with stainless steel for their beginning set, others have opted for copper pots and pans to get them started. Copper is an excellent conduit of heat and can help even the most novice of cooks learn their way around heat and the kitchen.



Copper Chef Reviews: Toast to the Good Life with Steak and Scallops in Champagne Butter Sauce

If you’re looking for a good surf and turf recipe, look no further than this delicious steak and scallop recipe. Originally found on My Recipes, this steak and scallop dish will soon become one of your favorite dinner party recipes to try. With a few ingredients and a taste for steak and scallops, Copper Chef reviews how you can make steak and scallops in a champagne butter sauce.


  • 2-4oz beef tenderloin steaks
  • 6 large sea scallops
  • 3 tsp. butter sliced into pieces
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. cracked black pepper
  • ¼ tsp. crushed peppercorn
  • 1 tbsp. divided olive oil
  • 1/3 cup champagne (or dry white wine)
  • 1 ½ tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. minced shallots


Season your steaks on both sides with 1/8 tsp of salt and black pepper each. Sprinkle scallops with 1/8 tsp each of salt and peppercorn on both sides. After you’ve seasoned your meat and fish, heat ½ tsp oil in your copper pot and add the steaks. For a medium rare temperature, cook for about 3 minutes on each side or adjust your cooking time to what your desired temperature. Remove to a separate plate and cover

Add the remainder of the oil to the copper pan for the scallops. Cook your scallops for 2 minutes on each side and then move to a separate plate and cover.

In the same copper pan, add your lemon juice, champagne or wine, and shallots. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes or until it’s been reduced to 2 tbsps. Remove the pan from the heat and add your butter one slice at a time. Whisk constantly and season with salt and pepper to your desire.

Finally, after you’ve plated your shrimp, scallops, pour the reduction on top. Add any sides that you like, Copper Chef suggests lemon asparagus or broccoli, and enjoy.

Copper Chef Reviews the Moscow Mule Copper Mug Mystery

moscow mule cocktail in copper mug

There is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than a nice, ice cold Moscow Mule. It’s one of the best summertime cocktails, mixing ginger beer, vodka, and a splash of lime. While the Moscow Mule has become one of our favorite mixed drinks, we’re not entirely sure which is better: the drink or the copper mug that it’s served in.

If you’ve ever ordered a Moscow Mule (and if the bar did it correctly) you will notice that it comes in a nice, shiny copper mug. Even though there are a few bars in existence that don’t understand the copper mug and the Moscow Mule come hand in hand, the mug has become a signature piece to the Mule. Have you ever wondered how and why the Mug and Mule combo originated? Here, Copper Chef reviews the history behind it.

Since its arrival to bars everywhere in the 1940’s the Moscow Mule has traditionally been served in a beautiful copper mug. Aside from the aesthetic, there are two main reasons why it has always been served this way. These two reasons are the taste and the temperature.

If you’ve ever cooked in copper, you know the copper tends to enhance the flavors of the food. The same goes for the Moscow Mule. The copper in the mule has a (mostly subjective) way of enhancing the combined flavors of ginger beer, vodka, and lime. It’s believed that when this drink was first served, it was noted how the vodka would oxidize the copper. Contrary to what oxidation does to wine, it actually makes the Moscow Mule better.

One of the more steadfast and factual reasons for using a copper mug to serve your Moscow Mule is for the consistency of temperature. Not only is copper a good conductor of heat, but it does a great job keeping drinks consistently cooled. This is due to the metal instantly becoming chilled and absorbing the cold. The design of the mug, with the expanded handle, ensures that your hands do not come in contact with the mug, accidentally warming it up.

Next time you’re at the bar ordering your Moscow Mule, sit back, enjoy your drink, and think of all of the information you just learned about the beautiful copper mug you’re holding.



Have S’More with the Copper Chef This Summer

Picnic dessert smores with marshmallowsThere’s no better summertime treat than good old fashioned s’mores. Sitting around a fire in the summer breeze and enjoying the combination of graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate is the perfect way to end any meal or day. While the traditional method of making s’mores is over a fire, grill or even the lazy man’s way in the microwave, the Copper Chef reviews show that copper cookware has a few s’more tricks up its sleeve. Here are 2 great s’more recipes to try this summer.

S’Mores Cake
Combining graham crackers, chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows, this baked treat is a great twist on the traditional s’more sandwich. It’s just as delicious as a regular s’more, but without all of the messy preparation. This is a perfect dessert after family pizza night or a kid’s slumber party!

S’Mores Popcorn
Grab your favorite family movie and enjoy this tasty snack over a laugh. It’s easy to make, especially in your copper pot. If you didn’t know that you could make popcorn in your Copper Chef, well, now you do. If mixing salty and sweet flavors isn’t your thing, try using a cracker jack mixture or caramel sauce over your popcorn.

While traditional s’mores are undefeated, these fun twists on the classic will surely be added to your s’mores collection. Give them a try in your Copper Chef and tell us what you think!

Signs It’s Time to Replace Pots and Pans

Owning a home takes a lot of love, effort, energy, sweat and tears. You need to know when different things need to be repaired, replaced or serviced. Some things are easy to take care of, while others can be a little tricky. Here are the signs that it’s time to replace the pots and pans in your kitchen with new items.

Non-Stick Coat is Gone

When the non-stick coating is no longer on your pots and pans, it’s time to replace them with something else. You might notice this when you cook. You might notice it when you clean the pots and pans. You might notice it when it’s too late and some of the coating came off in your food. Either way, this is a sure sign that your pots and pans are too old.

Enamel Coating Chipped

If you like enamel-coated cookware, you should stop using it the minute it begins to chip. If the chips are at the top of the sides of the pan, don’t worry too much. But, if the bottom of the cookware starts to see enamel chip, then it’s time to replace these items. If there is visible rust along the top of the sides that cannot be removed, it’s a sign that you need to replace the pots and pans.

Rust Can’t be Removed

The next time you go to clean your pots and pans and there is rust on them, and that rust can’t be removed, time to upgrade your to a new set. Try to remove the rust prior to tossing the pans. You can use vinegar when you scrub. But, if a good cleaning doesn’t do the job, they are done.


Check your pots and pans to see if they need to be replaced today. If you’re looking for new items, copper is a hot trend in cookware that allows for even heat and looks great in any kitchen.

Read reviews on stainless steel, aluminum, nonstick and copper before making a decision on what to buy next. There are many options, and sometimes you don’t need a whole set. A copper chef review notes that one pan can take the place of many! Buy that new cookware, take care of it, and get rid of your old, chipped, rusting kitchen cookware today.
