Stainless steel is a real powerhouse in the kitchen due to its versatility. When it comes to cookware, copper is the best heat conductor but stainless steel yields numerous practical advantages such as compatibility with all hobs and the oven, easy maintenance and tremendous value for money.
We believe it’s a tie for The Best Of The Best between All-Clad Copper Core and Mauviel M’Cook. Both collections have 5-layer construction, cast stainless steel handles and pouring rims. Copper Core enlists the aid of copper for superior heat responsiveness. We recommend hand washing and drying immediately as the visible copper band will need polishing from time to time if exposed to a dishwasher. M’Cook offers the best combination of price, range and quality.
