Which All-Clad Cookware Collection is Right for You?
One of All-Clad’s most popular lines is the D3 Stainless Collection, which features a three-ply bonded design with a thick aluminum core to conduct heat and a stainless steel exterior to evenly distribute it. This line is
excellent for all chefs, even beginners, and is compatible with induction cooktops. For those developing their cooking skills,
the All-Clad D5 Brushed Stainless Collection is an ideal alternative. It has five layers of alternating stainless steel and aluminum for even heating, plus an induction-optimized exterior layer that creates a forgiving cooking surface and
professional results for browning and searing. (Do be careful with metal-on-metal contact when cooking. Stock up on wood, nylon and silicone utensils to use with your new nonstick pans. Metal is a no-no on nonstick because it can scratch.)
Those looking to master their techniques will want to consider the All-Clad Copper Core Collection, which features five-ply bonding with a copper center for rapid heat conductivity and responsiveness, making it more precise. It
features an attractive polished steel exterior with copper accents, flared edges for drip-free pouring and heat-controlling handles. Be sure to explore the HA1 Hard Anodized Collection for more cooking-style-specific options.
No matter which collection you choose, each All-Clad skillet features a starburst cooking surface that’s stick-resistant, non-reactive and easy to maintain. Plus, All-Clad cookware is oven- and broiler-safe to 600
degrees Fahrenheit, for total versatility in the kitchen.
Where is All-Clad Made?
All-Clad products are manufactured in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. Located near Pittsburgh, this small town has been the home of All-Clad since the company was founded in 1971. The region is the main hub for the American steel and aluminum industries and home to some of the world's top metalworkers, making it the perfect location for the latest in metal fabrication technology.
Should I Season My All-Clad Stainless Steel Pans?
All-Clad stainless steel pans do not need to be seasoned. Instead, simply preheat your pans on low or medium heat for one to two minutes, then add fats (1 to 2 teaspoons of oil or butter) to the hot pan to coat it well. This will maximize browning and minimize sticking when using your stainless steel All-Clad pans. Users should never apply aerosol non-stick sprays to All-Clad cookware.
Can You Use Metal on All-Clad?
Metal tools and utensils should not be used on All-Clad nonstick cookware as they can potentially chip or scratch the nonstick coating and hinder its performance. The All-Clad lifetime warranty may be void if metal tools or utensils are used on the nonstick cooking surface. Additionally, users should not use scouring pads or steel wool on All-Clad nonstick cookware. For All-Clad bonded stainless steel cookware collections, all tools and utensil materials are safe to use 1 to 2 teaspoons of oil or butter) to the hot pan to coat it well. This will maximize browning and minimize sticking when using your stainless steel All-Clad pans. Users should never apply aerosol non-stick sprays to All-Clad cookware.
How Do I Clean My All-Clad Stainless Steel Pans?
Follow these steps to clean your All-Clad stainless steel pans:
Wait for the pan to cool down before cleaning. (Placing a hot pan under cold water could cause warping.)
Use a nonabrasive, non-chlorine cleaner. We recommend All-Clad cookware cleaner for the best results.
Immerse the pan in warm water. Form a paste with the All-Clad cookware cleaner and, using a soft cloth, rub the paste in a circular motion from the center outwards.
Wash in hot, soapy water to remove the paste, then rinse.
Dry immediately to prevent water spotting.
Do All-Clad Pans have Teflon?
All-Clad pans do not contain Teflon. The brand's nonstick cookware uses a high performing, PFOA-free nonstick coating to keep foods from clinging to the surface, including delicate or sticky foods. The quality of the cookware also eliminates hot spots, which may damage nonstick coatings and cause the surface to burn or flake off. Be sure to follow All-Clad cookware instructions for the best results.
How Do You Clean Burnt All-Clad Pans?
For burnt-on food along with discolorations and stains from exposure to high heat, a specialty stainless steel cleaning product called Bar Keepers Friend is recommended for cleaning. Combine this product with water to create a soupy paste. Apply the paste to the interior and exterior as needed. Rub the paste on the surface of the pan with a soft cloth or sponge until burnt areas or heat-related stains and discoloration have been removed.
Does All-Clad Have a Lifetime Warranty?
All-Clad cookware and bakeware are backed by a lifetime warranty. The brand's kitchen electrics, accessories and spare parts feature a limited warranty, with kitchen appliances also supported by an extensive authorized service network for repairs and spare parts.
