This versatile pan is designed for browning meats and vegetables on the stovetop followed by braising with the lid in place to seal in flavors and keep foods moist. The pan is from All-Clad's three-layer bonded Stainless Steel cookware line, which pairs classic style with modern practicality. A capacity engraving on the base makes for quick identification, and an improved ergonomic handle ensures comfort. Tri-ply construction sandwiches a heat-responsive aluminum core between an easy-care stainless-steel interior and exterior. Aluminum core transfers heat quickly and steadily along the bottom and up the sides, so the contents of the pot cook evenly. Stainless-steel cooking surface with starburst finish provides superior stick resistance and won't react with foods. High, straight sides and large surface area accommodate larger cuts of meats while containing juices. Large domed stainless steel-lid included for covered cooking. Ergonomic, riveted stainless-steel handle stays cool on the cooktop. Pan size etched on base for quick identification. Ideal for use on any cooktop, including induction.
