All-Clad Copper Core Essential Pan

All-Clad's Copper Core cookware features bonded five-ply construction that combines the superior culinary performance of copper with the cleaning ease of stainless steel. This versatile 4-qt. pan combines the rounded sides of a French skillet with the height and wide surface area of a deep saute pan. Ideal for preparing pasta sauces and then tossing in the pasta before serving, it's also perfect for cooking family-sized stir-fries and risottos and one-pan meals like stews, chilies and oven-baked casseroles. Five-ply construction of securely bonded metals: a thick, extremely heat-responsive copper core sandwiched between two layers of highly conductive aluminum, with stainless-steel exterior and interiors. Copper core allows for the quickest heat-up time of any metal, maximum temperature control and rapid, even heat distribution. A ring of copper adds a finishing touch to the gleaming exterior. 18/10 stainless-steel interior won't react with foods and allows for easy cleanup. Magnetic stainless-steel exterior for durability and dishwasher-safe ease. Ideal for use on any type of cooktop, including induction. Flat lid locks in moisture. Improved stay-cool stick handle with finger guard for balance and control. Rim is shaped to allow for dripless pouring. Pan size etched on base for quick identification. Handcrafted in the USA.

A Must Have!
May 26, 2014
I went to a WS demonstration and saw the Essential Pan. I knew I had to purchase it! Initially I bought the d5 version and was pleased with my purchase; however, shortly thereafter All Clad offered the same pan in the Copper Core Collection. As most of my cookware is Copper Core, I exchanged my d5 for this one and couldn't be happier! The quality is simply exceptional. You'll LOVE this piece.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Size, Versatile, Design, Weight

THE ULTIMATE PAN FOR YOUR COLLECTION!
March 12, 2014
My most favorite cooking implement was my Emeril 4-QT saucier. I thought nothing could take its place until I got hold of this beauty! WOW! What a difference! In fact all of the "real" copper-core line which All-Clad offers are all unbelievable! This is a MUST-HAVE for any home Chef!!!

Well Worth the Price
January 28, 2014
I own several pieces from the Copper Core line, including the Essential Pan. I do just about everything with this pan from making pasta sauces, to braising inexpensive cuts of meat. The whole Copper Core collection is outstanding. If you can buy only buy one piece at a time, start with this one!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Size, Versatile, Shape, Design

Perfect pan I've been waiting for!
November 24, 2013
This is number 10 for my Copper Core collection. It is truly the only pan that I would call "Essential". I just browned a 3 lb. pot roast for the slow cooker with NO SCREEN and this pan is deep enough for NO SPATTER. Good balance and just the right size to handle with ease. Pasta sauce , Stir Fry , everything is coming out perfect.
Pros: great value for price, copper core
