All-Clad® Story

What began in 1967 as a metals manufacturing company specializing in coinage for the U.S. Mint soon shifted to cookware when founder John Ulam, a gifted metallurgist, made a pan for himself using a piece of leftover bonded metal. He crafted this pan using a now-patented triple-ply roll bonding process, sandwiching highly conductive metals like copper and aluminum between 18/10 stainless steel. The result? A cook pan with unparalleled heat distribution and retention.

Ulam liked his pan so much he made a few for friends, then started selling them at local fairs. By 1971, demands for Ulam's cookware skyrocketed, bringing his side-business center stage.

Today, All-Clad cookware can be found in kitchens of leading restaurants worldwide, from Le Cirque in New York, to Harry's Bar in Italy. Still based in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, All-Clad is the only cookware manufacturer to produce a full line of hand-finished cookware products made exclusively in the U.S.

In addition to their trademark cookware series, All-Clad offers five state-of-the-art cookware collections, plus a bakeware line. All share the timeless design, outstanding performance, effortless cleaning, and lifetime durability now synonymous with All-Clad Metalcrafters.

Ergonomic handles are attached with stainless-steel rivets and their length provides excellent balance while allowing them to stay cool during stovetop cooking. Hand-polished stainless-steel interiors brilliantly resist reacting with foods. All-Clad cookware is ideal for induction stovetops (with a few exception pieces) and also gas, electric, and halogen stovetops. All-Clad can go from cooktop to oven (up to 500 F for stainless interiors, up to 450 F for nonstick) to table to refrigerator or freezer.

*Exceptions: Because of their size, certain All-Clad pieces do not fit typical production standards. The Pasta Pentola and 7-quart stockpot are the only All-Clad Stainless pieces that are not induction-capable. Their height prevents the stretching of the magnetic stainless layer all the way up the sides of the pots, so their outside layer is 18/10 stainless-steel. In the Stainless, LTD, and MC2 lines, the lasagna pans and roasting pans are made from single layer material. Their rectangular shape is difficult to produce in bonded metal.


Care & Cleaning

Before using All-Clad cookware, wash each piece in hot, soapy water with a dishcloth or sponge. Rinse with hot water and dry thoroughly.

Salt Damage: To prevent tiny white dots or pits from forming on cookware, bring liquids to a boil, then add salt and stir well. Or, once food is cooking add salt. Pitting will not hinder cooking performance but can detract from the stainless-steel's beauty.

Prevent Water Spotting: After washing cookware, rinse thoroughly in hot water and dry immediately.

Discoloration: Overheating can result in blue or brown stains. If food films are not removed, they will discolor the cookware when reheated. Iron deposits in water may also cause cookware to appear rusty.

Stainless-Steel Interiors: Place cookware in warm water. Using a soft cloth, gently apply a fine powder cleanser (CHEFS Stainless-Steel Cookware Cleaner) to form a paste. Do not use oven cleaners or cleansers containing chlorine bleach. Never use steel wool or steel scouring pads. From the center outward, rub cleanser in a circular motion. Wash cookware in hot water with a mild detergent. Dry immediately.

Steel-Stainless Exteriors: The polished stainless steel exterior of All-Clad Stainless requires very little care. Use a soft cloth or nylon scrubbing pad to apply a commercial stainless-steel cleaner (CHEFS Stainless-Steel Cookware Cleaner). Use a circular motion to rub in, then rinse in lukewarm water. Do not use steel wool, steel scouring pads, or harsh detergents.

Anodized Aluminum Exteriors: The exceptionally hard-anodized exterior requires little care. The scratch-and stain- resistant exterior prevents food from sticking to it. Clean with soft cloth or nylon pad using warm water and CHEFS Anodized Cookware Cleaner or a mild detergent. Harsh soaps will lighten the dark surface. Never use steel wool or steel scouring pads. Do not wash LTD cookware in the dishwasher.

Cleaning Brushed Aluminum Exteriors: With a soft cloth or nylon pad, apply a commercial aluminum cleaner to polish off tarnish and dark areas. Rub cleaner in a circular motion and rinse off with lukewarm water. Never use steel wool or steel scouring pads. MC2 cookware is not recommended for the dishwasher.

Cleaning Copper Exteriors: To remove tarnish and dark areas, use CHEFS Copper Cookware Cleaner or another commercial copper cleaner. Apply cleaner in circular motion with a soft cloth or nylon pad. Rinse in lukewarm water. Never use steel wool or steel scouring pads. Copper exteriors and the Copper-Core copper band will darken with dishwasher use and harsh detergents.

Cleaning Nonstick Surfaces: Using a soft cloth or nylon scrubbing pad, wash cookware in hot water with a mild detergent. Dry immediately. Do not use oven cleaners or cleansers containing chlorine bleach. Never use steel wool or steel scouring pads. Nonstick cookware is not recommended for dishwasher use.
