Thanks everyone for the replys. One of the things I really like are the better handles. The new d5 and CC all have the newer, and in my opinion much better handles.
My plan was to get the WS d5 version of the 4 qt SS Saute/Simmer pan next that I think uses the same lid as the 12" skillet?
Thanks again for all the feedback.
Bloomingdales is having a sale and they have the 12" AC Stainless w/lid for $79 and the AC copper-core w/o lid for $129.
I was planning to get the 12" stainless when I discovered the copper-core discounted. They also are selling the 10" AC copper-core for $109.
The new AC copper-core is induction ready and stamped on the bottom of the pans.
My question - are the copper-core worth the extra $$?
I have had pieces of the Calaphon Tri ply for years...I recently added more - all the new pots and pans have Induction stamped on the bottom.
