Cookware Collections

All-Clad offers many other products such as small kitchen appliances (toasters/slow cookers, waffle irons), cookware (pots or pans), ovenware, baking sheets, bakers, and kitchen tools (tongs. whisks. serving utensils. spatulas).

However, we will only be focusing on their most popular product range: cookware.

Before we get to the specifics of All-Clad and whether or not the expensive prices are justified, let us first take a look at the products and what options there are.

All-Clad completely revamped its cookware ranges in 2020. C4 Copper, LTD, Thomas Keller and Thomas Keller collections have been discontinued. FusionTec is All-Clad’s new ceramic collection. D3Everyday has a completely revamped version and D3 Everyday is the new D3 Cookware.

Here I will briefly review each of the collections available right now and explain what makes them unique.

View our All Clad Buyers’ Guide for a comprehensive breakdown of the best All-Clad stainless Steel collections.

My All-Clad Collection And How It’S Held Up To 15 Years Of Cooking

The All-Clad collection I created was built by me over the years. I purchased a few things from samples sales, and then bought more. Asking for pots for special occasions and asking for them to be given as gifts. When I saw the pan, I bought it at a thrift shop without a lid.

Credit to Meghan Splawn. I first bought the two-quart saucepan online during a second sale. I bought it mostly to make caramels and other candies in my post-culinary apartment. The pan was dripping with sugar, but it’s still beautiful. My two children now eat a lot of Annie’s mac and cheddar, morning oatmeal and stove-popped popcorn in it. It is the pot I buy most for newlywed friends because it is perfect for making soup, rice, and more when cooking for two.

Credit: Meghan Splawn. My All-clad Collection grew with my family. To my pantry, I also added a 4 quart soup pot (which All-Clad describes as a “casserole”) The “seconds pot” can also be used on cooktops. I had a gas stove, so it wasn’t an issue. However, it will spin on my flat glass cooktop. This pot is my favourite. It cooks pasta quickly on weeknights and can be used for melting chocolate or making fudge. It has a bit of burnt-on blackness that I blame on a batch (or two) of burnt popcorn by my husband. This could be scrubbed out using a bit of elbow grease but the bottom is still fine.

All-Clad Stainless 4 Quart Cake – 200 at Sur la Table Credit : Meghan Splawn. I was given a 12-inch saute pot by Alton during my internship and was eventually offered a full-time position managing his cookbook projects. This All-Clad pan is what I use for stovetop-to oven cooking. You use it for making frozen potstickers from Trader Joes as much as you do for baking homemade pretzels. This is what my husband calls the “family pan”, as it makes large, delicious meals in a fraction of the time it takes to cook. Also, it is so easy to clean. Stainless steel cookware does require generous greasing to keep things from sticking, which is especially true of this pan. For different purposes (it’s great for long braises and acidic sauces that need a lid), I love this pan as much as my cast iron 12-inch skillet.

Another few All-Clad Pots are good quality and last many years. But I find myself reaching for less of them: an 8-quart pan, a saucier of one-quart that’s great for cooking marinades and melting butter, and half-quart cocottes which my kids use as toys. These pans would make great gifts if you have a particular use. However, I rarely buy these pots for my friends and sometimes even think about purging them.

And perhaps the most important thing, I vote against All-Clad’s high-priced nonstick cookware. A nonstick 8-inch skillet I used for regular egg frying didn’t last much more than two years. In my opinion, you can buy a better nonstick skillet for way less.

Most All-Clad cookware is designed to last a lifetime and I’m 100% confident mine will. I’ll be writing another review within another fifteen years! Given the high price point, I can definitely understand the temptation to buy a set to try to save a little money, but I love the way I built my collection over time, getting the pots and pans I truly needed.

1. All-Clad Triply 12-inch Fry Pan. We love the All-Clad Triply 12-inch Fry Pan. This stainless steel skillet is better than any other. A USA-made, fully-clad, triply-constructed skillet was raved by the tester. The pan cooked delicious steaks and perfectly seasoned sauces, without showing any signs of burning. Though it’s lightweight, it retains heat nicely and is the best in the group at even heating.

Amazon’s All-Clad Triply 12-inch Fry Pan is $189 2 All-Clad Waffle Maker During testing, this sturdy waffle maker proved to be a delight. It consistently produced four deliciously crispy pieces with melt-in your-mouth centers. The customization setting allows you to adjust the browning level, from light to dark. A drip tray is attached at the back to make it easy to clean.

Amazon has the All-Clad Waffle Maker for just $199 All-Clad Immersion blender This All-Clad stainless steel immersion blender is a great choice. The All-Clad Immersion Blender is a long-wand blender with a blending head that encourages liquid flow. It was able to blend soups, smoothies, mayo, and other ingredients quickly and efficiently in our testing. The All-Clad 10 piece HA1 hard-anodized nonstick cookingware set This set features a beautiful black finish with shiny metal handles. Unlike other nonstick cookware sets that can’t produce a crispy sear, our reviewer found the pans to do particularly well in creating a hard sear while she cooked chicken with skin on. As the pot’s lid allows steam to escape, it is ideal for making fluffy rice. You will receive an 8-inch and 10-inch frying skillet, 2.5-quart and 3.5 quart sauce pans, an 8quart stockpot, and a 4-quart saute and saute pan.

Get the All-Clad HA1 Hard-Anodized 10-piece Nonstick Cookware Set at Amazon for $499 5. All-Clad SD700450 Slow cooker Although large and heavy, these sturdy, ergonomic handles make transporting it much easier according to our testing. Its black, ceramic insert is safe for oven use and cleaning in the dishwasher. The insert has handles, which allow you to move the inner pot around like the outside. The insert is programmable with three cooking modes: Low, High and Hi/Lo. Once cooking is completed, it automatically switches to Keep Warm setting and will last up to six hours.

Set All-Clad Ha1 nonstick fry pan

Justin Park / Justin Spruce – Wayfair: Buy on Bed Bath & Beyond. The All-Clad HA1 Fluffy Fry Pan Set was purchased so that our reviewer could test it in his own kitchen. Continue reading to see our complete product review.

All-Clad is an American line of cookware and kitchen appliances made in the heart of Pennsylvania’s Steel Belt. Though the sturdy and useful cookware from All-Clad is not cheap, the All-Clad All-Clad Fry Pan Set HA1 is one of their more affordable offerings. To see if this company’s nonstick pans are as durable and efficient as their higher-end products, we tested them on both 8 and 10. The skillets were tested for durability, performance and easy cleaning. We prepared breakfasts, lunches and dinners over several weeks.

B3 Line

The B3 collection is All-Clad’s first collection of pots and pans to be constructed outside the U.S., in China. Although the change was disappointing for some All-Clad loyalists, it has been praised by its users.

Nonstick, the entire range is made of heavy-gauge, three ply, bond anodized aluminum. It offers nonstick benefits without many of its drawbacks. The B3 has a thick stainless steel base that won’t warp and is induction compatible.

The cookware can be used on all stove tops. It is also oven-safe up to 500oF and dishwasher-safe.

B3 is a great choice if you’re a beginning cook: since the production is outsourced, the line is a bit more affordable and the nonstick surfaces are a little more forgivable.
