Originally designed to meet the demands of professional chefs, All-Clad continues to be the undisputed choice in four-star kitchens throughout the world. The cookware has exquisite lines, impeccable balance, meticulous hand-finishing, and superior heat-conductivity. The cookware features a unique metal bonding construction in which a thick core of aluminum is sandwiched between an easy-to-clean, highly polished 18/10 stainless steel cooking surface and a brushed aluminum alloy exterior. The aluminum core retains heat and evenly distributes it along the bottom and up the sidewalls of the cookware, eliminating hot spots when cooking. The stainless interior is stick-resistant and cleans easily. The matte finish exterior of brushed aluminum gives the cookware a distinctive style. The stock pot is great for preparing stocks and soups, boiling water for pasta, and cooking large batches of chili or chowder. The stock pot has two stay-cool loop handles attached with non-corrosive, stainless steel rivets and a lid fashioned from polished 18/10 stainless steel that fits even with the pan's edges to seal in the flavour of foods.16 quart/15.1 litre capacity.Oven safe to 500 F.

To remove stuck-on food or discolouration and stains resulting from using too high heat, clean using Bar Keeper's Friend stainless steel cleanser.
