Heavy gauge copper outer layer gives unparalleled even heating and precise control for recipes with delicate components. Professional chefs or gourmet home cooks who need an extra measure of control to their cooking will appreciate these pans. All-Clad describes the thermal conductivity of this pan as ideal. Heat dispersion is enhanced by the pure aluminum core, spreading into the sides as well as along the bottom of the pan.
An 18/10 stainless steel interior provides an exceptional cooking surface. Solid cast stainless steel handles are permanently secured by high yield strength stainless steel rivets. This size pan is excellent for side dishes, smaller meals, or additions to main meal components. The eight inch would also be a good choice for a single person household where smaller portions are prepared.
The Cop-R-Chef comes with a lifetime warranty and All-Clad's bonded cookware is handcrafted in the USA.
This pan's exterior can be allowed to antique over time or can be highly polished. The interior is simple to clean and won't react with your creations. This pan is not recommended for the dishwasher as detergents can darken the copper. Tarnish or darkening can be alleviated with any commercial copper cleaner. To keep the interior at its best, don't use metal scouring pads or harsh cleaners. A paste of cleanser should clean anything warm soap and water can't handle.
Pair this with the All-Clad Copper Core Saute Pan.
