All-Clad handles, imo, are just poorly designed.  The only complaint I have about the brand.  I now use a Viking sauté pan rather than my AC because the handles are much more friendly.

 

Here's the secret: pick it up with a side towel. It will finally make sense. I try to cultivate a habit of using a towel any time I grab a pan, just to avoid absentmindedly branding myself, so it's no trouble. That AC handle suddenly becomes comfortable, and more secure (less likely to slip or pivot) than any other handle I've used.

sorry for my late reply but my facts/details are:

 

-young dude building up cookware+kitchen equipment. for pots etc i really just have a good sized le creuset dutch oven and a 2qt sauce pan. i find the 2qt sauce pan to be...way too small? i dont really use it too much. ideally i think i'd have a 4qt and a 3qt sauce pan (or maybe saucier).

 

definitely interested in buying slow in order to buy quality. i do have an induction top but in 2022 i'm not sure how much that throws things off for quality pans?

I absolutely love my all clad 3qt saucier. It’s a great pan, hugely versatile - I wouldn’t be without it.
