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!
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.
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.
The exterior is brushed while the interior is polished to its original luster. Handles are reattached with new stainless steel rivets. The pan has been restored to original performance and beauty.

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.
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%.
While the preferred cleaning method is with a non-abrasive cleaner, Encore pans are able to be put in the dishwasher.
You may use your Encore pans on all types of cooking surfaces, including induction.
