Ready to Buy New Pots: Need Advice

I have all clad , mauviel, falk, and sitram catering. I always go for the sitram catering. It comes out of the dishwasher looking brand new.

taking the plunge into le creuset

I had the same thing happen and returned mine to Williams and Sonoma( where I purchased it) with no receipt and was given a new pan. I would contact Le creuset to get a replacement.

allclad versus demeyere skillets

When I started this post my main interest was fully cladded frypans. I really would like to have the demeyere proline which is 4.8mm of aluminum and no rivets. A 11" demeyere pan costs $180. I can get the 12" stainless all-clad for $75 or the Copper core for $120. I have a Falk culinair fry pan 2.3mm of copper which is just too heavy to try and shake when sauteing mushrooms etc. I have disc frypans( vollrath, sitram catering) which end up with burnt material on the sides of the pan. I presently do not own one piece of all-clad. I am trying to figure out which line would be best and easiest to clean. I first only considered the all stainless but now after hearing positive remarks about the copper core I am not sure.

allclad versus demeyere skillets

I know there is a significant difference in weight between the stainless and the copper core. Have you always washed them by hand. I wish they would have omitted the exposed copper band. They even have pouring edges. I am tempted, especially with my discount!

Has anybody tried or have all-clads copper core line?

allclad versus demeyere skillets

I can't shake cast iron when sauteing mushrooms. The allclad stainless steel has an aluminum core. I want a fairly light pan with no burnt edges.

allclad versus demeyere skillets

yes, I thought with the claded(sp) pans one would avoid burnt sides. I assumed burnt sides resulted from the pan being just stainless steel without aluminum on the sides.

Actually the LTD is more expensive and slightly heavier. Unfortunately Allclad will not provide the thickness of their products. I know the demeyere is 4.8mm.

allclad versus demeyere skillets

I am working temporarily at Williams and Sonoma with a great discount. I am wanting a fully clad skillet. I do not own any allclad but with this discount I am tempted. I am tired of the burnt edge on disc skillets. I am debating between the all stainless versus the LTD. Is the LTD external finish as durable as the stainless? I really want the demeyere proline. I am not sure I can justify the demeyere with the great allclad discount at w/s. Help!

I have purchased many Le Creuset items through this website. Their prices are the best I"ve seen and they frequently give bonus coupons for an additional 20-30% off. I have many different colors. I am amazed at how easy they are to clean, even baked on food. You have to be careful when storing them so they won't be chipped. They give you little protectors to prevent damage to the lids. http://www.ekitchengadgets.com/lecreu...
