I'm just amazed with what I can do with my All-Clad pots and pans.
The insert is quite convenient. I actually enjoy cooking more often. The double boiler and steam inserts has allowed me to prepare my food in a more interesting and elaborate ways.

the double boiler insert
All my cookware is All-Clad, both up north and here in FL. I've used it for 30 years. I love all of it. This insert was the only thing I needed yet. It is wonderful.

Great for non-All-clad pans, too
I bought this because for years I have been putting one saucepan inside another for a double boiler. This fits two different 8" diameter pots I already have and it works beautifully. I only regret I did not buy it years ago.

Did not fit. Was too big to use with the tri-ply. Returned it.

"Love this so much, I bought one for Mom!"
Excellent for steaming veggies, and deep enough for most artichokes. Works like a charm and easy to clean up. In typical All-Clad style, the quality is great. Buy one for yourself and one for Mom! (I did!

love the all clad products, really needed a double boiler.
Anne J on Dec 2, 2017
In my last move,some seven years ago, I lost my double-boiler insert. So. for that period,I have been balancing one saucepan in a larger one. It works pretty well, but there is always an element of anxiety. I have a saucepan (not All-Clad) that this will fit.

I have used All-Clad stainless cookware for the last 25 years. It is still just like new. I needed a double boiler, and this fits one of my saucepans. It is as good as expected.

I have used All-Clad pots & pans for over 25 years in both of my homes up north and in Florida. The double boiler insert was the one thing I've been missing in my FL home. Now my cooking utensils are complete. I feel All-Clad is the best cookware.

Lana W on Dec 25, 2016
I already have All-Clad cookware. This is an addition to my set. I will ONLY buy All-Clad because #1 It is made in the USA of USA steel. #2 It heats the food evenly without burning. #3 You do not need to use a high heat to cook with. I LOVE my All- Clad cookware.

Pan Size

Into what size sauce pan is this supposed to go?Thanks
A shopper on Dec 4, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This double boiler fits the 3, 4, and 5 qt saucepans
What is the capacity of this double boiler?
A shopper on Nov 7, 2012
BEST ANSWER: This double boiler insert has a 3 qt capacity.
Does this work with the 3 QT saucier
A shopper on Mar 29, 2013
BEST ANSWER: There is a 1/2"" difference in the diameter of the 3 qt sauce pan and the 3 qt saucier, so I don't believe the double boiler would fit properly into the saucier
would this pan insert work with a 2 or 4 qt saucier?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This insert will work in the 2qt saucier, but not the 4qt
Does this insert fit into All-clad copper core pots?
A shopper on Apr 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It fits any 8" diameter pan I would think. It fits two non-All-clad pans that I have and the lids fit it since they are also 8" in diameter.
Can i use this double boiler as a stand alone pot? Is this stove top safe?
Jeongeun Y on Jan 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No. The bottom of the pan is considerably thinner than a regular pot in order to transfer the heat from the boiling water in the pot below. This thin bottom would not be appropriate for normal cooking temperatures.
Does this work with the 2 quart saucier?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have the insert for a 3-quart sauce pan (now regret; a 2-quart would be more useful)
I have a 3 qt and 4 qt D5 saucepans...will it fit and can it be brushed stainless steel?
A shopper on Mar 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will. You can use the lid from either pan to cover said boiler to accelerate the heating process. Doesn't matter if it is brushed. It also fits into the 2 quart copper clad sauce pan (happy accident).
Is this available to order?

I received an email stating this was now available to order. When I click on the link in the email, the product page says it is unavailable
A shopper on May 3, 2012
BEST ANSWER: This item is currenly reading in stock and available to order. The item # is 828020. You can go to and just enter that item number in the search field and it will bring the product up so you can order it.
