Is All-Clad Cookware Worth It?
We think All-Clad cookware is worth every penny because it's proven to be as long-lasting as it is functional (and it doesn't hurt that it's also easy on the eyes). Its stainless-steel cookware has secured a spot in our kitchens since the material is notably non-reactive, so we can cook with acidic ingredients without the pan imparting an off taste or color to our food. Plus, many of the brand's pieces are three- or five-ply, meaning they're constructed from a layer of aluminum sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel, resulting in the even, quick heat conduction and retention that we strive for. And as if it couldn't get any better than that, its stainless-steel cookware (like this seven-piece set for as low as $330, from $840) is also rust-resistant and holds up against metal utensils.
While the brand's stainless-steel options lack nonstick coating, PureWow senior food editor, Katherine Gillen, is here to let you in on a secret: "If you preheat [stainless steel] properly with a little oil, it can be more nonstick than any DTC ceramic pan," she says. Nevertheless, you'll also find some of All-Clad's fan-favorite nonstick aluminum pieces at a markdown during this sale. They feature a high-quality PFTE coating (which you can learn more about here) that the brand claims makes for smoother cooking and cleaning.
Some of the top deals to grab now include this stainless-steel fry pan duo (was $240, now $100) and this gorgeous Copper Core cookware set (was $1,350, now $750). If you want in on them or any other pieces at a markdown, you better act fast because only limited quantities are available. Oh, and one more thing to note: All sales are final, so only pick items you really love. To start, here are five sets sure to steal your heart while heating things up in the kitchen.
If you need fry pans, you won't want to let this deal pass you by. The reason: At 8- and 10-inches, this duo will cover all of your searing, browning and pan-frying needs for meals of any size. All-Clad thought of everything when designing them, even down to their flat bottoms and flared sides that supposedly make tossing and flipping with a spatula a breeze (even for beginners). Meanwhile, their three-ply construction of stainless steel and aluminum should help heat food evenly for consistent results. Want to stick them in the oven? No problem. These babies are safe for up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit, so yeah, they're built for anything.
This seven-piece set—including a 10-inch fry pan, 2-quart covered sauce pan, 3-quart covered sauté pan and 8-quart covered stockpot—can tackle just about any recipe you throw at it, thanks to thick copper cores that ensure lightning-fast heating and stellar retention. In other words, you can finally master delicate sauces, especially since each piece features a starburst finish that's non-reactive with food to help preserve flavor. The five-ply bonded construction made of stainless steel, aluminum and a thick copper core gets all the credit in terms of responsiveness and durability, while the chic copper trimmings are just the aesthetic cherry on top.
We suggest taking advantage of the *whopping* $510 markdown on this seven-piece set, not just because it includes everything from a 10-inch fry pan to a 6-quart covered stockpot (with lids!), but also because each piece is highly polished for stick resistance, which will prove helpful when cooking *and* cleaning. Of course, you can also expect the same high-quality construction of stainless steel and aluminum to help ensure that only the finest bites make it to your plate.
Are you a lover of sleek nonstick aluminum and stainless-steel cookware? This 12-piece set has your name all over it since it supplies the best of both worlds. So let's say you're feeling a stainless-steel fry pan for making sauce one day and a nonstick one for an omelet the next; no worries, you've got options. Personally, we love this set for the beautiful 6.5-quart cast aluminum cocotte pot alone, which, at a fraction of the price, might just give our Le Creuset a run for its money. Other than that, all that really matters is that every piece is dishwasher- and oven-safe for up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit. What more can you ask for?
Consisting of 11 nonstick pieces made of heavy-gauge aluminum, this set may clock in the most use in your kitchen. It includes 8-inch and 10-inch fry pans, 2.5-quart and 3.5-quart sauce pans (with lids), a 4-quart saute pan (with a lid), an 8-quart stockpot (with a lid) and an 18- by 14-inch cookie sheet, all featuring a nonstick coating to release food easily while requiring less butter and oil. So just imagine how much each piece will come in handy during the week (thanks to their silky smooth surfaces for super easy cleaning) and during the holiday season (which will be here sooner than you think).
