A copper frying pan is a must-have for cooks inclined to perfectionism (and/or chefs), for no other material responds to heat as superbly as copper. All-Clad’s Copper Core range takes copper a step further and adapts it for modern kitchens. The entire pan, from base to rim, is clad with five layers of metal: 18/10 stainless steel on the outside, two supportive layers of heat-responsive aluminium, and a core of copper, making it induction-compatible. A vented, stay-cool handle ensures a comfortable grip and a curved rim allows easy pouring. A thin band of exposed copper is visible from the outside, an accent that gives this range its singular look. Available in small (20cm), medium (25cm) and large (30cm).
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 sea bream 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
