Let me explain first what I love about this pan. It is huge, heats up evenly and the stainless is quite stain resistant and cleans ups to like new with a little barkeepers friend. Also, the pan is very pretty and the enormous mirror finished cover makes it look gorgeous. Everything I expected from All-Clad and was very impressed with what I got.
Now, let me get to the handle problem. I had vegetables in the pan and I was trying to lift the pan and I noticed the handle digging really uncomfortably into my hand. The design is like a celery stalk, rounded at the bottom but has sort of sharpish edge up top that digs into your hands. I finished cooking holding the pan awkwardly but I thought I must be doing something wrong. I searched on the internet and see if other people had the same problem and they do have the same problem and the suggestion was to hold it from bottom. That helped a little but there is only one angle I can hold the handle from which I could get it to not dig into my palms but then I still have to hold it awkwardly.
It isn't as big a problem because of the helper handle. With it, you can take the pressure off and just let the rounded part of the handle rest on your hand. But if you want to use one hand to hold the pan and the other to do something else like move food, then you have to hold it really awkwardly. I end up holding it closer to the top of the handle so that the end of the handle can push against my arm below the wrist so it doesn't dig into my palms.
I have other tri-ply pans from Emril pro-clad, Tramontina and Anolon. Emril pro-clad has a celery style handle but it is much wider and there is so sharp edge to the handle. I can twirl the entire pan and the handle will not dig into my palms at any angle. The Tramontina and Anonlon has a solid round and smooth handle that also doesn't dig into the palms that are just big hunks of metal. Compared to the other pans, the All-Clad is a thin waifish handle. Since the pan is so heavy, I think All-Clad should have engineered a different handle for the pan. I understand making a thin handle to give the pan balance for small pans but when its a 13" tri-ply skillet, it just doesn't make sense. Fortunately, there is the helper handle and I can work around the handle problem. But, this is not something I should have to be doing with premium cookware.
Before using this pan, I had never really given a though to handles. I used to have a store brand non-stick omlette pan that would sometimes tip over and pour hot oil over the stove and floor because of an over-heavy handle. But, all the tri-ply cookware I have, none of the handle designs have even crossed my mind. They have all felt natural. I really wish the handle a big wide slab of metal that even if it adds overall weight to the pan, that it doesn't feel like I'm lifting a heavy box by strings. The handle looks like something out of a 8" pan put on a 13" pan.
Now, let me talk a little bit about looks. The only other piece of All-Clad cookware I own is a flared-rim, 14" roasting pan. I bought it in store and mainly because it was so pretty compared to every other roasting pan. It doesn't have long handles but two loop handles that roasting pans have. In the same store, there was also a round flared-rim 12" roasting pan in the store that was absolutely gorgeous but I couldn't justify spending money on two roasting pans, especially a round roasting pan. Unfortunately, this 13" skillet doesn't have flared rims so it does lose a little bit of attractiveness with the straight edge and also the helper handle isn't as big as on the roasting pans so it loses another bit of attractiveness there. Flared rims or the big roasting pan helper handles could have made this pan look better.
So, I gave it three stars (which Amazon says translates to its OK). It is an excellent pan but for the money it is OK. It could be a lot more comfortable with a better engineered handle. And, I have seen slightly prettier and better looking All-Clad cookware.
