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. It can go in the dishwasher, bonds well to induction hobs, and has riveted handles that stay cool as you cook. It is clad with five layers of metal all around the pan: 18/10 stainless steel on the outside, two supportive layers of heat-responsive aluminium, and a core of copper, which is an exceptional conductor of heat. The layers let the pans distribute heat evenly, even the parts furthest from the heat source, and curved rims provide mess-free pouring. A thin band of exposed copper is visible from the outside, an accent that gives every pan in this range its singular look. (Keep in mind that more dishwasher use means more polishing; it will not affect the pan’s performance.) The set, which is exclusive to Borough Kitchen in the UK, includes:
- 20cm frying pan
- 25cm frying pan
- 17cm (1.9 litre) deep sauce pan with lid
- 22cm (2.8 litre) sauce pan with lid
- 25cm (2.8 litre) saute pan with lid
- 28cm (7.6 litre) stockpot 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
