What is Encore?  

All-Clad Encore delivers top performing pans at a significant savings for you, all while protecting the environment. Through the Encore recrafting process, artisans restore pans that have been returned to us over time to their original performance and beauty, instead of sending them to the landfill.

Because of the original quality and craftsmanship of All-Clad products, well-loved pans can be restored and live a second life in your kitchen. See below for what makes this cookware so special!

Lifecycle of an  Encore pan

used pans


Our lifetime warranty allows consumers and retailers to return All-Clad products for various reasons. We developed a rigorous restoration process to avoid sending thousands of pounds of metal from returns to the landfill while using 95% less energy than creating new pans from scratch.

Sanitize + Refurbish

At our factory in Canonsburg, PA, the handles are removed, sanitized, and polished. The pan is sanitized with high temperature heat treatment and restored to its original shape.

Find below the most common questions about the ENCORE Recrafting Program

  • What is the major difference between Encore and a new pan?

    The largest difference is with the cosmetics of the product. Typically, All-Clad products have a very pristine finish. Given that Encore pans have lived a past life, there will likely be scratches or minor dents which could not be removed during the restoration process. These cosmetic imperfections do not have any impact on the overall performance of the pan.

  • What type of use and performance can I expect with Encore?

    All-Clad is known for its superior performing cookware. From speed-to-heat to evenness, our products deliver superior results. Encore is no exception. These pans perform exactly as you would expect any other All-Clad product to perform and we stand behind that 100%.

  • Are Encore pans dishwasher safe?

    While the preferred cleaning method is with a non-abrasive cleaner, Encore pans are able to be put in the dishwasher.

  • What cooking surfaces do Encore pans work on?

    You may use your Encore pans on all types of cooking surfaces, including induction.

  • Can I put Encore Pans in the oven?

    Encore pans are able to be placed in ovens up to 500 F.
