I hate my All-Clad - what am I doing wrong?

Inspired by all the new posts, I attempted an omelette in my AC using the advice given. Low heat, long slow warm-up of pan, add plenty of fat (the butter turned brown, so I wiped out the pan, let it cool and tried again), add food, gently nudge to release. It was the most moist and tender omelette I've ever made. Thanks, Chowhounders!

Thanks. Maybe the better question is, why do people like them then?

Hi! First post, persistent lurker.

I received a SS All-Clad frying pan for Christmas, and frankly, it sucks compared to my two old inexpensive cast-iron pans. It seems like everything sticks to it. I've tried seasoning it like cast-iron to no avail. I was about to chuck it in the Goodwill pile until I realized how much those things cost and how much some people like them. Am I doing something basic wrong?
