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 the exterior and an 18/10 stainless-steel interior is a thick aluminum core that spreads heat evenly across the bottom of the pan and all the way up its sides. The interior is 18/10 stainless steel, highly polished so it's stick- 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, remains beautiful during this cookware's lifetime warranty against defects--and beyond.
This 8-quart stockpot makes clear why All-Clad's Stainless is so popular. Though not classically tall and narrow, it simmers soups and stocks and accommodates enough ragu Bolognese to feed all the relatives. And it's ideal for braising foods on the stovetop or in the oven under its polished lid. Because of the aluminum core on the bottom, foods cook uniformly, even though the pot is 5 inches deep (11 inches in diameter). And because the interior is nonreactive, tomatoes and other acidic foods won't taste metallic. Its lid and stay-cool loop handles are riveted for strength and won't be harmed by an oven's highest heat. A rolled edge facilitates dripless pouring. Although Stainless cookware is dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. --Fred Brack
From the Manufacturer
All-Clad Stainless Construction
Each piece of All-Clad cookware features a unique metal bonding construction. All-Clad Stainless cookware sandwiches a thick core of three separate layers of aluminum between an easy-to-clean, highly polished 18/10 stainless-steel cooking surface and a magnetic stainless-steel exterior. The aluminum core retains heat and evenly distributes it along the bottom and up the sidewalls of the cookware. The stainless interior is stick-resistant and cleans easily. The magnetic stainless-steel exterior gives the cookware a gleaming finish. All-Clad Stainless also features the companys signature "stay-cool" long handles, lids fashioned from gleaming 18/10 stainless steel, and highly durable stainless-steel rivets. All-Clad Stainless cookware is one of five collections from All-Clad Metalcrafters. Designed to work on conventional gas and electric ranges, as well as induction cooktops, All-Clad Stainless cookware is the best-selling collection in a full line that includes All-Clad LTD, Cop-R-Chef, Master Chef 2, and Copper Core.
Features and Benefits
All-Clad pans with a stainless interior cooking surface are oven-safe up to 500 degrees. All-Clad pans with a non-stick cooking surface are oven-safe up to 400 degrees, but should not be used under the broiler. We recommend using a low to medium temperature when cooking with All-Clad. Higher heats are not necessary and may cause discoloration (see cleaning instructions below). Other features include:
- Beautifully polished, magnetic stainless exterior layer.
- Pure aluminum core that not only covers the bottom of the pan but also extends up the sides. This allows for great heat conductivity as well as an even heat distribution so you wont have "hot spots" when cooking.
- Stainless-steel interior layer/cooking surface.
- Long, polished stainless, stay-cool handles.
- Sturdy, non-corrosive stainless-steel rivets won't react with foods.
- Polished stainless-steel lids fit evenly with the pans edges to seal in flavor of your foods.
- The All-Clad Stainless collection is compatible with an induction stovetop (with the exception of a few pieces) in addition to gas and electric stovetops.
- The Stainless collection is dishwasher-safe, excluding pieces with a nonstick cooking surface.
From date of purchase, All-Clad guarantees to repair or replace any item found defective in material, construction or workmanship under normal use and following care instructions. This excludes damage from misuse or abuse. Minor imperfections and slight color variations are normal.
For daily cleaning, warm soapy water is sufficient. Clean your All-Clad thoroughly after each use. Food films left of the pan may cause discoloration and sticking. To get rid of stuck-on food or discoloration and stains from using too high of a heat, we recommend cleaning your All-Clad with a product called Bar Keepers Friend. To use the Bar Keepers Friend, simply use a soft cloth or sponge and water and make into a soupy paste. This can be used on the interior, as well as the exterior of your All-Clad (excluding the Cop-R-Chef). The Bar Keepers Friend can also be used on the exterior of the All-Clad Stainless collection, LTD collection, and MC2 collection. For cleaning of the Cop-R-Chef exterior, simply use a brass/copper cleaner. If your water has a high iron content, you may notice a rusty discoloration. Use Bar Keepers Friend to remove it.

Top Customer Reviews
I bought this to make soups, marinara sauces and stews, as well as to work with the All-Clad Stainless Professional Universal Steamer Insert to steam vegetables or couscous.
The pot is attractive, simple, gleaming and professional looking, and a pleasure to use. It has a thick-bottomed surface that distributes heat evenly. It rarely burns unless I am completely distracted and forget about something for a long time on high heat. The few times I have burned it badly, it is not ruined as some other pans I've used...soak, and scrub and it's good as new.
Even heat distribution
Easy to clean; even if it does burn, it is not ruined
Good size for a good amount of pasta sauce, a stew for a big crowd or a soup. Also can be used for water boiling/steaming.
A lot more money than other pots which are also perfectly decent.
If cooking isn't one of the main pursuits in your life, you'll probably be just as happy with another decent brand. However, if like me, you cook all the time, in great quantities, for tons of people, seriously consider All Clad. I've given away all of my older pots, and now I use only All Clad in my kitchen.
It's been a joy to own and use. Unlike the 6-qt, whose handles get a mite warm after long stove-top cooking, the 8-qt handles rarely get hot, even after cooking on a gas range for a couple of hours. I don't regret our original purchase decision, but I do like the 8-qt version a bit better than the 6-qt now.
