The All All-Clad Cookware Topic


Recommended Posts

Quite reasonable appraisal, Will.

I should fess up that I am very long at this cooking game. Been putting dinner on the table 365/year for 50 years. Thin cookware has my anathema since I began. I hate disk bottom cookware. All-clad has been an epiphany. For the first time in my trials, I caramelize sugar with my eyes closed, add cream and turn our caramels or go on to sauces and ice creams. Make fast reduction sauces. Stove top or oven braise. Saute up some veggies or seafood, deglase and reduce and turn out a spectacular pasta sauce. And the list goes on. Yes, I hate the inside rivets, but, heck, these pots belong to me. If I condone a bit of smutch around them, I only have myself to answer to.

Perhaps the subject of another thread, but don't overlook tag sales, flea markets and other second tier market sources.

IMHO, All-clad? Go for it!

Another big difference between the two is that All-Clad has riveted handles, whereas Sitram has welded ones. Some advantages and drawbacks to each.

Hi,

A few years ago there was an infomercial for some waterless cookware which used welded handles. The "chef" proclaimed that the welded handles eliminated the problem of those pesky rivet falling into the food you were cooking.

All-Clad non-stick works well. I have the All-Clad 4 space waffle maker with non-stick parts - the batter has never stuck and I never had to butter the grittle. I was surprised just how well the thing works and clean up is me wetting a paper towel and going over the grittle when done. And I put chocolate chips ontop of the batter once I pour it in - the 1 or 2 chips left come off very easily.  

 

I also have the All-Clad pancake grittle for the top of the stove that is non-stick. Works great and I've had it for 5 years.

Are you completely set on All-Clad? If not, I'd suggest looking at Demeyere -- much better quality for the price. Here are a couple of pieces I'd recommend:

Atlantis 3.2 qt. saucepan and Proline 11-in. skillet. These Amazon prices are absurdly low, so you could get both pieces for your budget. If I didn't already own more cookware than I'll ever need, I'd order that saucepan in a flash.

 

@JAZ It is like pulling hens' teeth to find actual dimensions of Demeyere pots and pans.  For the 3.2 qt. saucepan what is the height and width in centimeters?

 

I have more cookware than I'll ever need* but that has not stopped me yet.

 

 

*even some All-Clad that I half three quarters regret.

I love my All-Clad, original Master Chef. Still going strong after 25 years of misuse.

Product Dimensions 16.7 x 9.4 x 5.7 inches

 

Please use your Hewlett-Packard calculator to convert to centimeters. I'm assuming the largest dimension listed is from handle to opposite side edge of pan.

 

But are we allowed to speak of Demeyere on this thread? (Cause I have a piece or two, which are used quite rarely).

I love my All Clad (except for the handles) which. like Weino, I've owned for many years.  The Demeyre's disk bottom is a turn-off for me.

not to move too far away from the topic

 

but for completeness sake

 

Demeyre has several ' levels ' of pans.  the ones w the disk is possible somewhere in the middle

 

just guessing

 

their top of the line pans were called something else when I got a 2.5 qt saucier several years ago

 

now its called ' industry 5 ' as it has 5 all clad layers :

this panj

but in the medium size.   there are actually 3 . possible 4 sizes

 

outstanding steel pan , I got it with a deep sale , as I was going to give my 2 all-clad aluminum sauciers away

 

\when I moved to Induction.   that's what the steel pan was for.

 

no induction anywhere on the horizon it seems for me

 

and Im fine w that

 

the handles on the industry 5 are outstanding.

I have old All Clad MC which I love and newer AC which I don't. Some newer bottoms are crowned.  My Calphalon is better.

We've certainly talked about old vs. new All Clad.

 

Something about manufacturing in Canonsburg, PA...

Yes, last night I found the Demeyere dimensions on the UK site.  The problem with converting from inches is that the imperial dimensions I saw had apparently been rounded to the nearest inch.

 

I wanted to replace an All Clad LTD with an induction pan that would accommodate the All Clad double boiler insert.
