If you want the unparalleled heat responsiveness of traditional copper but not the high maintenance, All-Clad’s Copper Core range is the perfect choice. Constructed with five layers of metal—18/10 stainless steel on the outside, two supportive layers of heat-responsive aluminium in the middle, and a core of copper—every pan in this range is induction hob–compatible and does not require polishing to prevent verdigris. The Copper Core range includes a thin band of exposed copper visible from the outside, a design feature that shows off its unique properties. The layers allow for even heat distribution, reaching the parts furthest from the heat source, and a curved rim provides mess-free pouring. The comfortable recessed handle is vented to stay extra cool as you cook.
The set (exclusive to Borough Kitchen in the UK) includes:
- 25cm stainless steel frying pan
- 17cm deep saucepan (1.9 litre/2 quart) with lid
- 25cm saute pan (2.8 litre/3 quart) with lid
- 28cm stock pot (7.6 litre/8 quart) with lid
Why we love it
‘We use the Copper Core range in our cook school because of how well these pans can withstand heavy use, and how precisely it cooks all kinds of food, from potstickers to tikka masala.’
About The Brand
All-Clad was founded John Ulam, a renowned metallurgist whose inventions transformed the automobile, aerospace, and mint coin industries. An avid home cook, he applied his knowledge of bonding metals with very different properties, such as stainless steel and aluminium, together to make pans. The result was cookware that cooked food more evenly, was easy to clean, didn’t alter flavours, and didn’t tarnish or warp. So when All-Clad opened the doors to their Canonsburg, Pennsylvania factory in 1971, cookware was yet another industry he transformed.
Their products are still manufactured in the USA, where each and every piece is inspected for strict quality control. In addition, they adhere to exacting environmental standards, recovering and recycling nearly every ounce of unused material.
We believe their Copper Core range to be the best copper pans for induction hobs, offering the superior performance of copper with minimal clean-up. Their stainless steel TriPly and d5 ranges are durable and versatile, with user-friendly features like pouring rims and comfortable handles that stay cool as you cook.Shop All-Clad
