Buying cookware for the kitchen is not a very difficult task but the advertisement and different companies do confuse us when it comes to choosing between two same equipments of different companies.
All the advertisement that we see on television shows us that these pans are durable, non-stick and they can be washed in a dishwasher but what durability depends on is how you use this equipment. The more fat and more heat you provide to the pan the more scratches, defects you are going to find.
And about the dishwasher in advertisement they show that you can put them in a dishwasher and use them but actually when you buy the product, it has instructions written that do not wash them in a dishwasher.
So everything you see in an advertisement is not real so the first thing you will want to change in your buying system would be not to trust advertisement but to see the point which are worth and what qualities matter when it comes down to buying a good pan.

Red copper cooking pans I have aluminium in it which is very light and sturdy metal and a test heat efficient and Teflon free which makes it even better at its qualities.

and of course, you can use a dishwasher to wash them but then again if you want a long-lasting non-stick surface for your pan, I would suggest you hand wash your pans.

These pans are quite durable and shining and attractive and also affordable but they are not as durable as the hard anodized cookware set.
Gotham steel cooking pans also have an alternative named Gotham steel Hard anodized cookware set. It is more resistant to heat and quite a good product.
