Representing the best in American craftsmanship, All-Clad's d5 Stainless Steel line incorporates five-layer bonded construction as well as functional advances. This multipurpose pan is ideal for one-pot preparations that call for sauteing, simmering and braising. Each of the five bonded layers serves a specific purpose, creating a noticeable difference in cooking performance. 18/10 stainless-steel interior for easy cleanup. Two aluminum layers, one to conduct and one to sustain heat. Patented stainless-steel core diffuses heat for consistent results. Magnetic stainless-steel exterior for durability and dishwasher-safe ease. Pan is shallow and wide enough to sear chops and reduce liquids quickly, yet deep enough to fit whole chicken pieces under the lid without crowding. Improved stay-cool stick handle with finger guard for balance and control. Rims are shaped to allow for dripless pouring. Extra-large loop handles are easy to grip, even with oven mitts. Pot size etched on base for quick identification. A Williams Sonoma exclusive.
