Yeah, right...the pictures included are after me trying to scrub with baking soda for half an hour and then boiling vinegar in it. Just stay away. The non-stick peels off and the pan is unusable.
if i already have an allclad set, will my lids fit this? none What is the capacity? At least 5Qt.? No to 5 quarts. 4 or 5 cups is a comfortable amount. It will hold 8 or 9 CUPS but it will be too full to work with. This is skillet not a saucepan Can you use metal spatulas in either the stainless or the bonded versions? You could use metal spatulas in the stainless versions, but eventual marring (even etching) will harm the finish. I wouldn't use metal anything on the bonded surface. Where is this pan made? All Clad cookware is made in Cannonsburg, Pennsylvania. There wasa time where All Clad had certain lids made in China but they pulled that back to the USA. I purchased one of these pans from Amazon for use in Culinary school and I love it. Heat distribution is excellent and I have never had any issues with the non-stick surface. The construction is classic All Clad, very durable and built to last. Does this have aluminum in it? Yes, it does. The product description on Amazon says: 3-ply bonded construction consists of durable stainless steel encapsulating an aluminum core for even heating throughout.
