I chose the Cuisinart because....
It is much prettier than the All-Clad or Tramontina
The handle isn't as huge and "clumsy" as the Tramontina,
The All-Clad pan has a tapered thin handle which makes it much more difficult to control heavy ingredients than the Cuisinart
The Cuisinart has a pouring lip the All-Clad does not. The lack of a lip makes the All-Clad a messy nuisance and nearly useless in an active kitchen environment.
The Tramontina lip is huge and ridiculous looking yet does not seal better or serve any other functional purpose
The Cuisinarts' corners can be reached with a whisk just as easily as my All-Clad. This was one of ATK's test criteria
I already have an entire set of Cuisinart Chef Classic pans so the lids are all interchangeable
I have owned my Chef Classic pans since before Cuisinart produced Multiclad pans. Other than the sides getting very hot like a commercial black steel pan and can scorch cream-based ingredients if you don't know what you are doing (as mentioned by ATK) I have had no complaints
The Cuisinart performs EQUALLY AS WELL as the All-clad and costs less than either of the other pans.
One plus for the Tramontina...It has a helper handle which made emptying the pans' contents into a colander or down the drain much easier. I found that an oven glove or pot holder worked well with all pans in these situations as even the helper handle got very hot on a gas stove
Final note: Are there any suckers out there that want to buy my used All-Clad pans so I can go buy the entire set of the Cuisinart Multiclad Pro...and still have enough money to buy a new dishwasher?
After using each about a half dozen times, I was pleased with the performance of both. Neither seems to have any significant performance advantage over the other. Both heated evenly, were solidly built, and were comfortable to lift and pour. Neither handle heated too much during cooking even after simmering tomato sauce for hours. The Cuisinart's handle was warmer than the Calphalon but not by much. I did find the Calphalon slightly easier to clean food that had become stuck to the surface. However, that was negated by having a third handle rivet to clean around. Essentially, performance was the same from both lines. For those that are concerned with the appearance of the cookware, the Cuisinart Multiclad line has a brushed finish. The Calphalon Triply are polished to a mirror finish. Both were fine with me as I don't much worry about how they look.
I chose the Cuisinart sauce pans for a few reasons: lids, pan sizes, and price. I like the Cuisinart's metal lids more than the Calphalon's glass ones. I don't understand the benefit of glass lids. They can't take the higher heats that metal can, can break if dropped or banged, and fog up when used so you can't see what's in the pot, anyway. The sauce pans in the Cuisinart line are available in 1.5, 2, 3, and 4 quart sizes. That's perfect for my needs. The Calphalon was availabe in 1, 1.5, 2.5, and 4.5 quart sizes. I really wanted something in the 3-3.5 quart range since I use it frequently but it is not available from Calphalon. They do make a 3 quart Chef's pan but I didn't want the curved bottom. The Cuisinart Multiclad sauce pans are priced approximately 50% less than the Calphalon Triply pans. Since they performed evenly well, the Cuisinart Multiclad Pro seemed to fit my needs best.

I would not recommend this griddle for Induction stovetops. It might be ok if your stovetop can merge the two burners into one.
Cabe señalar que es la segunda ocasión que devuelvo productos de esta marca, por el mismo motivo.
One month later, I just noticed that rust started to develop around a small pit on the lid. I saw this tiny pit when I first received the saucepan but was not bothered by it...I thought it's stainless steel anyway.....damn I was wrong....I always hand wash and let it air dry...and that's enough for the lid to rust......seeing the rust on the lid is quite scary....not sure how much rust I've digested already....
At nowhere on the saucepan, packaging box and pamphlet does it mention 18/10 stainless steel.....it's probably not 18/10 stainless steel. Nevertheless, it's a very good saucepan, especially at this price....I just hope it is at least 18/8....
I got the 4 quart. All is can say is we've been using it it DAILY, it is such a pleasure to work with.
Great heavy bottom, can hold heat really well, with great distribution for searing and browning.
It looks great and feels very sturdy and the handle is long enough that on our gas stove, it won't overheat the handle. Feels like an all-clad but without the high price tag.
5 stars, well deserved, we both absolutely love this saucepan
edit: one year later, it's still beautiful, works as well as day one. Great purchase.
Interestingly there used to be lots of reviews of this pan that said it warped around the time that I bought it, but now they don't seem to be on Amazon.ca anymore, and the rating is full 5/5.
Fills the gap nicely, as a 6-quart pot is too small for dinner for more than 5 or 6 people and the 12-quart pot is just too big and unwieldy on the stove for anything other than a long cook stock.
Would highly recommend to all my fellow sauce makers out there!
However, after the first use on a medium heat gas stove the pan has warped and now spins on a flat surface. I let it cool before washing and washed gently. Warranty only covers US customers so a waste of a hundred dollars - lucky I can still use it on gas stove.
Very disappointing and unfortunately I can't recommend this product.
