We developed our new Thermo-Clad(TM) cookware drawing on over five decades of culinary experience, designing every element to provide years of great results in your kitchen. Available only at Williams Sonoma, Thermo-Clad(TM) is crafted in Italy to our precise specifications using an exclusive aluminum alloy that provides up to 35% better thermal conductivity than other aluminum-clad metal cookware on the market. We've configured this essential set to include a 3-qt. covered saute pan and 1-qt. covered saucepan for everything from simmering sauces and cooking grains to sauteing, browning, searing and braising. Designed and developed by Williams Sonoma, and exclusively ours. Thermo-Clad(TM) technology ensures efficient, uniform heating with precise temperature control and no hot spots. Combines a polished magnetic stainless-steel exterior with an exclusive aluminum-alloy core and a 18/10 nonreactive stainless-steel interior. Ergonomic handles provide a comfortable grip and maximum control. Double-wall insulated lids keep food warm and handles cool. Ideal for all types of cooktops, including induction. Lids are counted as individual pieces. Handcrafted in Italy.
