Impressed with Quality and Ease of Use
December 31, 2013
The set arrived for Christmas and was beautiful. I have only had it a week but I have been very impressed.
I made an omelette, which I used to make on a non-stick pan, and it came out perfect. I coated the pan with butter and it didn't stick at all, except for a spot on the side, but it cleaned up great with just a dishcloth and regular detergent. I made messy oatmeal and it also cleaned up easily. The pan heats very evenly (we cook on gas). I made risotto tonight and the inside was a little discolored after cleaning, but the Barkeepers friend powder made it clean up like new. The short handle does get hot if you have been cooking for a longer period of time.
We don't have a lot of storage, so we are using the nice bags that the pots came in as "buffers" so we can stack them in our cabinet and try to prevent scratching. So that takes a little more time to put them away, using the bags.
I would definitely recommend this set. We are very pleased.
Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Design, Weight
Cons: Difficult to Store

After owning Calphalon non-stick 15 years I finally bought this set plus 2 non-stick frying pans, an extra saucepan and the griddle. I am so disappointed!!! The outside of a couple of the pans are discolored, I have 2 chips on the inside of the pans I mash my potatoes in. All-clad said it was from salt or sugar but it is a chip. Lifetime warranty is a joke. I am so careful with these and have only had them 6 months. My old set looks better than these already. I would not recommend this brand. I did my research and thought I was getting a set of pans that would last a lifetime.
Cons: Quality, Fragile

All-Clad d5 brushed stainless
January 7, 2012
I have been cooking for years with a set of Calphalon non-stick pans and I thought that it was time to upgrade and finally get away from the non-stick products. First of all these pots and pans are beautiful to look at, along with being built very well (heavy). I have found that if you heat your pan properly and then bring the oil to the correct temperature that they will act similarly to non-stick. Also, you do not need to cook on high heat, low to medium will work just fine. Clean-up has been very easy, just some soap and water with the occasion barkeepers friend. Overall this is a great US made product that I plan on keeping for many, many years.
On a side note: I purchased an All-Clad roasting pan that I promptly sent back once I realized it was made in China. I am not going to pay a premium price for some contracted Chinese company to stamp the name All-Clad on the side of some roaster.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Design, Weight, good size, beautiful
Cons: makes friends jelous, you might gain weight
