As great as All-Clad brand!
on February 4, 2013
I've always wanted an All-Clad 12-inch frypan. My sister has one and I've used it several times so I know how great it is. But I had such a hard time spending $150+ for a frying pan! I researched comparables and found that Cooks Illustrated rated this an affordable comparison to All-Clad. I've always been happy with Cooks Illustrated's recommendations so I bought this from Amazon. Bottome line is: I'm SO HAPPY WITH IT!
One thing I had to learn is that it conducts heads so well that you may only need a medium heat to cook most foods (I have an electric stovetop). I've browned various cuts of beef, pork, and venison with great results - nice, even browning, great fond, no burning or "hot spots." I've also stir-fried veggies and been pleased with the results.
I would recommend this product to any home cook looking for a quality frying pan at a reasonable cost.
