the finest materials
Raw materials are critical to performance. All-Clad metallurgists specify the metal formulations in every detail, from chemical composition to microstructure.
Since quality always takes precedence over convenience, the metals are formulated for optimal cooking performance, not for ease of manufacturing.
All-Clad bonded cookware is manufactured to the most stringent environmental standards. Virtually every ounce of unused material is recovered and recycled, including the metal dust generated during the sanding process.
- A pure core of aluminum, stainless or copper - not only on the bottom, but all the way up the sides of each piece of cookware - distributes heat evenly and provides professional results.
- The 18/10 stainless steel interior cooking surface won't react with food and cleans effortlessly.
- Long, stick handles are cast from solid stainless and ergonomically designed for comfort and to stay cool on the hob.
- Rivets are formed from high-yield strength stainless steel and treated to remove trace elements of iron that could cause corrosion.
These painstaking efforts result in a finished bonded product that maintains the same integrity it was created with, even after a lifetime of cooking enjoyment.
