The time has come to ask the famous “uncle of America” for a favor. Yes, because in the United States the sale at low prices of All-Clad, the famous range of stainless steel pots, still for three days available at about half price. If you are a chef or foodies you probably already know the brand.
Among the brands preferred by chefs and experienced home cooks, All-Clad produces some of the best stainless steel kitchen utensils on the market: the multi-starred Thomas Keller it even has its own line, the TK.
The reason why the stainless steel cookware of All-Clad they are so popular is their structure: they are completely coated with seven layers of different metals, which are fused together to exploit the strengths of each material. For example, stainless steel is a non-reactive and resistant metal, but it is a bad heat conductor. Aluminum and copper, on the other hand, are better heat conductors, but they are – at the same time – softer and more reactive metals. Cladding it means stratifying these metals, ending with a stainless steel surface, so as to create a stronger and more robust pot or pan, which is also an excellent heat conductor.
The pieces of the All-Clad high-end can reach $ 300, but there are several models on sale with about 40-60% discount. If shelling out $ 100-150 for a single pan may seem like a lot, remember that there is a lifetime warranty on all the pieces All-Clad – and in reality it is a small investment for a product that will last you practically forever.
