Product Description

Product Description

Delicious sauces and foods with All-Clad quality; what could possibly be better? Attractively designed and incredibly tough, this chef's pan is constructed of three layers of metal; two stainless steel outer layers with an aluminum core. The stainless steel exterior combined with the aluminum core allows the pan to be used on all types of stovetops, including induction, and heats it evenly to eliminate hot spots. The included stainless steel lid holds in heat and steam to create succulent and juicy meals. The stay-cool handle features an eyelet which can be used to quickly hang the pan for storage, and it is riveted directly onto the side of the pan for extra durability. Comparable to a saucier or sauce pan, it is easy to make flavorful sauces and fried foods with little effort.

Producing some of the finest cookware in the nation, All-Clad has been featured in many high class and gourmet restaurants for its superior performance and aesthetically designed pieces crafted from American artists using the finest metals. A firm believer in quality over convenience, All-Clad's metals are formulated and bonded with cooking performance in mind, and are combined with stunning designs to provide you with the best cooking experience possible. This chef's pan is backed by a manufacturer's lifetime warranty against defects.

Amazon.com

The bestseller among All-Clad's renowned cookware collections, the Stainless line provides serious and professional cooks with all the virtues that make All-Clad's worldwide reputation unsurpassed. Key to its high performance is a three-ply, bonded construction. Sandwiched between layers of stainless steel lies a thick core of pure aluminum that spreads heat evenly across the bottoms of pots and pans and all the way up the sides. The interior is highly polished 18/10 stainless steel, so it's stick-resistant as well as stain- and corrosion-resistant. The exterior is gleaming, magnetic stainless steel that works on induction as well as conventional stovetops and, with care, will remain beautiful during this cookware's lifetime warranty against defects--and beyond.

This rounded, woklike pan with a narrow, flat bottom makes clear why All-Clad's Stainless is so popular. It's 12 inches in diameter and 3 inches deep, perfect for stir-frying pad thai or cooking asparagus in black bean sauce under its domed lid. Its long, polished 18/10 stainless-steel handle is riveted to the pan for strength, grooved on the top and rounded on the bottom for comfort, and holed in the end for hanging on a hook or peg. Like the pan's helper handle, it stays cool on the stovetop but won't be harmed by an oven's highest heat. Although Stainless cookware is dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. --Fred Brack

I bought this pan four years ago and planed to use it as an everyday wok, mainly to make stir-fry dishes. After years of use, I finally have to admit that it is not a good replacement for a traditional Chinese wok. However, I still like it overall. It has even heat distribution, versatile, sturdy, easy to clean, well-made, and looks nice.
If you are looking for a stir-fry wok, don¡¦t get this pan and choose a traditional carbon steel wok instead. One major disadvantage of this Chef¡¦s Pan is that it cannot reach the high temperature required to make tasty Chinese stir-fry dishes. If you preheat it for 3-5 minutes, add some cooking oil and then food, the pan quickly cools down. You end up boiling the food instead of stir-frying it. The essence of Chinese stir-fry is to cook food at very high temperature in order to seal the juice in the food. Boiling removes the juice along with the flavor from the food. A traditional wok, made of either carbon steel or cast iron, can reach the high temperature required for stir-fry dishes.
A traditional carbon steel wok is very cheap and can last a life time if cared properly. The downside is that it can rust easily if not cared properly. (I prefer the type without the nonstick coating because the Teflon nonstick coating won¡¦t last long under high heat, and it will eventually disintegrate and get into the food.) You MUST season a traditional wok before using it the first time. Seasoning the wok builds a brown-black patina on the interior that makes it non-stick and also prevents rust. After cooking, wash the wok with hot water only (No detergent !), wipe dry with paper towel, and then heat it on stove to remove any moisture on the wok. Do not soak it in sink after cooking or you will regret.

I recently purchased this pan, and I couldn't be happier. It looks great, is easy to clean, and heats beautifully! Food browns well, and so far, doesn't stick. This is the pan I use most, for stir-fries, for braising, for sauteing, whatever. My old pans, a set of Calphalon hard-anodized non-stick pans, are going to be replaced, one by one...
The other great purchase I made was the All-Clad Non-stick grill pan--it is wonderful!

This beauty can cook up a feast!

It has a large enough capacity for me to make a family-sized dish...all in one pot. While another critique says it does not replace a traditional Asian wok, it is called a "chef's pan"-not "inferior wok" and it does a number of jobs incredibly well! I really like the Chef's pan for searing then sauteeing. It can simmer and is the right shape for reducing...I've made everything from browned sausage ribbolita to apricot chicken in this beauty. And, creating the fond-that essential for so many sauces-is a treat in the All-Clad Chef's Pan. Plus, it's made in America! What's not to like?

As always with All-Clad, it cleans beautifully, simply, and looks amazing. If you want a wok, buy a wok, but if you want a chef's pan, this is the one!

If you're looking for a wok, this is not your pan. I had this same pan in LTD and used it several times a week for years and it held up beautifully. Unfortunately, it was lost in a move so this one replaces it. I use a Scotch Brite two sided pad on the inside and out and when needed, a little Bar Keeper's Friend to keep the stainless sparkling beautifully. Heat is spread evenly throughout and I love how it goes from stove top to oven.

I recently received the "copper core" version of this pan as a gift and, though I have not used it much yet, I think it is necessary to mention that the Amazon product description is wrong--this pan is not a wok, or "wok-like" in anything more than a superficial sense (it has rounded sides). It is much shallower than a standard wok, and has a much larger flat portion on the bottom than a standard flat-bottom wok (it is more like a deep skillet with a lid than it is wok-like). Yes, one could stir-fry in it, but that means little (one could try to stir-fry in a skillet or sauce pan also). This makes the complaints of "Student" moot; this pan was never meant to replace a traditional wok (if it was, why would All-Clad also make a wok in the same series of pans?).
Stir-frying will certainly be easier and better in an actual wok; I have one made by Calphalon and it is great. As far as this chef's pan goes, I plan to use it primarily for fricassees and braises.

This pan is not very versatile-by far my least used pan. It doesn't sit well on a stove burner, doesn't have terrific heat distribution and takes up a lot of storage space. It's basically a small wok with a lid. I love the all-clad line, but this pan is a loser. Buy a large frypan instead.

So easy to clean. Cooks evenly. Will be switching to All-Clad over time. This shape cooks everything if you need a one-size fits all while you await to funds for a full-out conversion. Next on my list is a 10" fry.

Good "wok" for 4 people or 2 people with leftovers. It is not big enough for more than 4. Overall good sturdy construction and it does heat evenly. I use medium or medium heat, does not require anything higher or may burn the oil/food. No problem with sticking as long as you keep stir-frying.
I bought the metal All-Clad Stainless Solid Square Spoon and used it to stir-fry with this wok. What a big mistake! It left irreversible scratches all over the wok after just one time of light use! So the lesson here is DO NOT USE METAL UTENSILS ON THIS WOK!! Use wooden ones instead. I called All-Clad and they said their limited warranty does not cover these kinds of scratches, only manufacture defects. Be warned!
This wok has performed very well otherwise. Cleans up easily as long as you soak it in water after use if you don't have time to clean right away.
