Tri-ply construction sandwiches a heat-responsive aluminum core between an easy-care stainless-steel interior and exterior.
Aluminum core transfers heat quickly and steadily along the bottom and up the sides, so the contents of the pot cook evenly.
Stainless-steel cooking surface with starburst finish provides superior stick resistance and won’t react with foods.
Ideal design for cooking stocks and also well suited for canning, blanching and preparing food in large quantities.
Loop handles allow for easy transfer on and off the stovetop.
Capacity etched on pan base.
Ideal for use on any type of cooktop, including induction.
The bestseller among All-Clad's renowned cookware collections, the Stainless line provides serious and professional cooks with all the virtues that make All-Clad's worldwide reputation unsurpassed. Key to its high performance is a three-ply, bonded construction. Sandwiched between the exterior and an 18/10 stainless-steel interior is a thick aluminum core that spreads heat evenly across the bottom of the pan and all the way up its sides. The interior is 18/10 stainless steel, highly polished so it's stick- as well as stain- and corrosion-resistant. The exterior is gleaming, magnetic stainless steel that works on induction as well as conventional stovetops and, with care, remains beautiful during this cookware's lifetime warranty against defects--and beyond.
This 6-quart stockpot makes clear why All-Clad's Stainless is so popular. Though not classically tall and narrow, it simmers soups and stocks and accommodates enough ragu Bolognese to feed all the relatives. And it's ideal for braising foods on the stovetop or in the oven under its polished lid. Because of the aluminum core on the bottom, foods cook uniformly, even though the pot is 5 inches deep (11 inches in diameter). And because the interior is nonreactive, tomatoes and other acidic foods won't taste metallic. Its lid and stay-cool loop handles are riveted for strength and won't be harmed by an oven's highest heat. A rolled edge facilitates dripless pouring. Although Stainless cookware is dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. --Fred Brack
From the Manufacturer
All-Clad Stainless Construction
Each piece of All-Clad cookware features a unique metal bonding construction. All-Clad Stainless cookware sandwiches a thick core of three separate layers of aluminum between an easy-to-clean, highly polished 18/10 stainless-steel cooking surface and a magnetic stainless-steel exterior. The aluminum core retains heat and evenly distributes it along the bottom and up the sidewalls of the cookware. The stainless interior is stick-resistant and cleans easily. The magnetic stainless-steel exterior gives the cookware a gleaming finish. All-Clad Stainless also features the company’s signature "stay-cool" long handles, lids fashioned from gleaming 18/10 stainless steel, and highly durable stainless-steel rivets. All-Clad Stainless cookware is one of five collections from All-Clad Metalcrafters. Designed to work on conventional gas and electric ranges, as well as induction cooktops, All-Clad Stainless cookware is the best-selling collection in a full line that includes All-Clad LTD, Cop-R-Chef, Master Chef 2, and Copper Core.
Features and Benefits
Beautifully polished, magnetic stainless exterior layer.
All-Clad pans with a stainless interior cooking surface are oven-safe up to 500 degrees. All-Clad pans with a non-stick cooking surface are oven-safe up to 400 degrees, but should not be used under the broiler. We recommend using a low to medium temperature when cooking with All-Clad. Higher heats are not necessary and may cause discoloration (see cleaning instructions below). Other features include:
Pure aluminum core that not only covers the bottom of the pan but also extends up the sides. This allows for great heat conductivity as well as an even heat distribution so you won’t have "hot spots" when cooking.
Stainless-steel interior layer/cooking surface.
Long, polished stainless, stay-cool handles.
Sturdy, non-corrosive stainless-steel rivets won't react with foods.
Polished stainless-steel lids fit evenly with the pan’s edges to seal in flavor of your foods.
The All-Clad Stainless collection is compatible with an induction stovetop (with the exception of a few pieces) in addition to gas and electric stovetops.
The Stainless collection is dishwasher-safe, excluding pieces with a nonstick cooking surface.
