Why did I wait so long??
February 26, 2012
I needed to replace old non stick cookware for way too long. I spent a lot of time reading all the extensive customer reviews I couId find on All-Clad Copper Core cookware as well as other brands. However I wanted to buy MADE IN THE USA and All Clad is! I also wanted to switch from aluminum to stainless steel which is said to be healthier. I wanted to get away from nonstick; but was worried about the clean up. This cookware cleans up easily. I have no regrets! It cooks beautifully. The skillets give foods a golden brown color. The cookware heats up and cools down quickly. Low to Medium heat is all you need. If you are looking for light weight; this may not be your choice. The large pieces are heavy but you can feel and see the quality. This large set with several big pieces is pricey but will last generations and you should have most everything you need. After I used this cookware a while; I realized all my worries were unfounded. I definitely made the right decision.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Size, made in usa

Heat Dispersment is the same as Mauviel
October 29, 2011
These pots disperse heat so well that the bubbles of boiling water originates along the sides and bottom of the pan, just like Mauviel copper pots. The COPPER-CORE pots are so responsive that medium heat is all that is needed to boil water. Frying eggs can be done on low.
The food cooks well , evenly and tastes great.
Clean up is easy. For anything really stuck on, deglaze the pan with a bit of water or brandy.
I have back problems and this set gives me the dispersion and even cooking of copper without the excessive weight.
This set performs so well by best friend even bought one after trying mine!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Color, Size, Versatile, Shape, Design, Weight
