All-Clad Copper Core Chef's 12" Pan

Elite chefs depend on All-Clad's Copper Core cookware because of its superb responsiveness to heat. Designed with a shallow, broad shape, this pan is perfectly suited for cooking sauces, soups and risottos while evenly dispersing heat to prevent scorching. Five-ply construction of securely bonded metals: a thick, extremely heat-responsive copper core sandwiched between two layers of highly conductive aluminum with an easy-clean stainless-steel exterior and interior that won't react with foods. Allows for the quickest heat-up time, maximum temperature control and rapid, even heat distribution. A ring of copper adds a finishing touch to the gleaming exterior. The domed stainless-steel lid helps seal in moisture. Riveted stainless-steel handles stay cool on the cooktop. Ideal for use on any type of cooktop, including induction. Hand crafted in the USA with materials from the USA.

Chef's Pan = Awesome Wok
March 12, 2015
I'm sure a chef will tell you this pan is great for other dishes/cooking styles, but I purchased this pan to serve as a wok (yes, I know A-C makes a wok, but this is a better size pan for my needs than the larger wok), and it is most definitely my go-to pan for stir fry. The generously sloped sides are perfect for tossing food around and allowing it to slide back down to the heat, and the flat bottom is nice for browning small amounts of meat. I find that it is a nice capacity to make 4 nice, big portions of stir-fry.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Size, Shape, Design

Great source of heat
August 18, 2014
I've been buying the copper core line for awhile and what I like about them is that they accumulate the heat and then the heat source (flame) becomes less important.
The pan or skillet takes over and you can take the heat source down and let the instrument do the cooking.
First time, I scored, par boiled, skinned and seeded 10lbs of tomatoes - used this pan with olive oil, fresh basil and red pepper flakes to make a pasta sauce. The tomatoes/juices simmered perfectly and reduced to make a great sauce. GREAT pan!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality
