Making Chocolate Ganache with All-Clad Copper Core

Candymakers and chocolatiers alike prefer the heat-responsive benefits of copper core cookware for making their sweet creations. Being able to consistently control and tweak the temperature of copper core stainless steel cookware makes it ideal for creating your own sweets at home where you need to be precise in controlling your temperatures.

Having an All-Clad Copper Core Sauce Pan turns creating a chocolate ganache from a process requiring a double boiler, to a one-pot wonder. Copper’s ability to react to heat quickly and precisely is exactly why a ganache can come out rich and luscious without having to use a double boiler or worry about burning during the process. Once the cream begins to simmer, you need to turn the heat down as it can burn easily. If the pot does not react quick enough once turned down, the bottom of the cream can burn as well.

Over time, even with the utmost care, cookware with a copper exterior will begin to tarnish and wear. All-Clad Copper Core Cookware provides the benefits of copper with the easier-to-maintain beautiful stainless steel finish.
