My Experience With The Copper Chef Pan



Copper Chef Corporate office contacted me and is sending a replacement. ¬†I will keep you updated on the pan’s performance ūüôā

***SECOND UPDATE*** Same issues with the replacement pan, I will no longer try to find a working Copper Chef pan. ¬†I was informed by the person handling my call that there were many others having these issues. ¬†I think it’s safe to say that these pans aren’t worth a dollar. ¬†I have found Ozeri Green Earth Pans and they are amazing if you’re looking for a great pan.


I’m sure you’ve all heard about these so called “wonderful” Copper Chef pans. ¬†I KNOW a lot of you have, because I had numerous requests to review them. ¬†I could not manage to get ahold of anyone at the company to ask about a review, so I bought one out of pocket in hopes to shed a little light on them for you all. ¬†I bought my pan at an As Seen On TV Store in Las Vegas which is a 2 hour drive (one-way) from me. ¬†I got home and opened the pan, and the edges had some knicks from shipping but nothing I couldn’t live with. ¬†At first, I was impressed and thought it was a great pan. ¬†I followed the care instructions very carefully from day one because I wanted to make sure I wasn’t wasting my money and ruining the pan by not caring for it.

After a few days there were a couple small spots that started sticking. ¬†Eventually, the whole pan had issues with food sticking so I started adding butter or oil so my food didn’t get ruined. ¬†Well, now the whole pan is ruined. ¬†Eggs got stuck on so badly that I can not get it out, even after scrubbing!


So, I did what anyone would do, and called the store I bought it from. ¬†I was told to contact Copper Chef because they are the one who backs their product, not the store selling it. ¬†So, I emailed customer service. ¬†Twice. ¬†Nothing. ¬†Not a response. ¬†I reached out to Copper Chef via Twitter and was told to use their live chat function. ¬†Here’s how that scenario played out:





Okay, I’m a little frustrated at this point, but I called the number I was provided with. ¬†I was told that I have to take it back to the store I bought it from. ¬†Really? ¬†I informed the customer service rep I called the store, and was told to contact Copper Chef directly. ¬†THEN, I got hung up on. ¬†So, I wasted my money, and really have a bad taste in my mouth both from the bad customer service, AND the burnt food.

Bottom line, DO NOT BUY THE COPPER CHEF PAN!!!  If you should have issues with it, you will not get a refund, replacement, NOTHING!!

Spoil Dad With The Hammacher Schlemmer High Definition Camera Drone #Review


When you hear the name Hammacher Schlemmer, you should automatically know great things are to follow. ¬†With Father’s Day just around the corner I figured what better time to try out a high-tech toy that any man would love? ¬†It seems like drones are at the top of every man’s list, so I couldn’t wait to try out the High Definition Camer Drone available from Hammacher.


I love the visual appeal this sleek drone offers.  The colors are really attractive, it is designed well, and is lightweight to boot.  The controls are easy to operate so even a novice like myself can have fun.


The drone responds quickly to the remote control commands, and it is A LOT of fun to fly!  You can control forward, backward, up, and down.  You can also make the drone do flips mid-air which are always an attention grabber to even a non-drone-enthusiast.  It can be pretty windy where I live, and I thought it would make it a little bit hard to take the drone up outdoors, but it handles really well and has a lot of power to be able to fight off the wind.


As if everything else great about this drone weren’t enough, I was really impressed with the HD camera equipped on it. ¬†It takes video and pictures at 1280×720 HD which allows for crystal clear images. ¬†This awesome drone is equipped with gyro stabilization so your video is always clear, never shaky. ¬†Matter of fact…two of those three images in the collage above are screenshots from video, and one is a still image. ¬†Can you tell which is which? ¬†I bet you can’t, because the video is just THAT good.

I hoped to be impressed by the High Definition Camera Drone, but I got so much more than I expected.  There is really nothing left to desire and is great for a beginner, or someone experienced.

Get Your Home Sparkling Clean With The Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away Speed #Review


I pride myself on keeping a clean home which can be a challenge living in the dusty Arizona desert, AND having pets and children.  Shark has been a brand I know and love for years, so I was really eager to get my hands on the Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away Speed to see how well it worked in my busy household.


Right out of the box, you can see that it’s a very visually appealing product, true to Shark fashion. ¬†I couldn’t wait to try out all of the different functions and ways to use one convenient machine. ¬†The Shark Rotator Powered Lift Away Speed is¬†2 vacuums in 1 ‚Äď upright and powered lift-away! It will never lose suction, has powered motorized brushes in all modes, ¬†features hard floor cleaning with dust-away pro cleaner head, anti-allergen complete seal technology, fingertip controls, advanced swivel steering, ¬†and LED lights on floor nozzle to illuminate work area. ¬†It also comes with convenient onboard tools like the duster, crevice cleaner, and pet multi-tool.


The first function I wanted to try was the traditional vacuum. ¬†Last year I spent a pretty penny on a vacuum that promised to pick up pet hair, so I was really eager to see how good of a job it was doing. ¬†I decided to put my ‘old’ vacuum to the test. ¬†I vacuumed the living room as I normally would, then again with the Shark Rotator.


You can see that it left my carpet really clean! ¬†BUT…here’s what I wasn’t prepared for:


THIS heap of nastiness is what came up off of my living room floor with the Shark Rotator IMMEDIATELY after using my vacuum I spent an arm and a leg on. ¬†That vacuum I bought last year that promised to pick up pet hair obviously was not doing it’s job. ¬†GROSS!!


Next I could not wait to see how well the hardwood floor attachment worked. ¬†I decided to again see how well my house was being cleaned before…I mean…it LOOKED clean, that’s for sure. ¬†I swept my floor as I usually do with my broom and dustpan, then went over it again with the Shark Rotator.


Again, my floor was left looking really clean, and you guessed it, it pulled up a pile of filth that I had no idea was being left behind!


You can see that even after sweeping my floor, the Shark Rotator still managed to find SO MUCH NASTINESS hidden lurking on my floors. ¬†(The penny is for size reference ūüôā )


The hand attachments also come in really handy.  My toddler likes to eat messy sometimes, and the couch gathers so many crumbs.


You can see that those pesky Pop Tart crumbs were nothing for the Shark Rotator, and my couch was left looking so much cleaner, and best of all, CRUMB FREE!

Day after day I keep finding new ways to use the Shark Rotator in my home. ¬†I feel really great knowing that my home is actually clean, and my children have the best living environment that they can have. ¬†The Shark Rotator never ceases to amaze me, and I know you’ll feel the same way as soon as you try one for yourself.
