All-Clad’s Copper Core range adapts copper for modern kitchens. This stock pot, from base to rim, heats quickly and evenly relative to other stockpots, and the pasta insert provides a built-in colander that lets you cook and drain with the same vessel. It 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. Curved rims allow easy, drip-free pouring, and the riveted handles are permanently secure. It comes with a tight-fitting lid that retains moisture well. A thin band of exposed copper is visible from the outside, an accent that gives this range its singular look.
Why we love it
‘If you regularly cook for a family of four or more, this stockpot with pasta insert makes easy work of weeknight pastas, boiled potatoes, and so much more, especially because of how much faster copper boils water.’
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
