Product Description

Here's a useful piece of kitchen equipment constructed of stainless steel and aluminum for strength, even heating, and good looks. Feeling like coq au vin for dinner? No problem when you have this pan on board.

The bestseller among All-Clad's renowned cookware collections, the Stainless line provides serious and professional cooks all the virtues that make All-Clad's worldwide reputation unsurpassed. Key to its high performance is a three-ply, bonded construction. Sandwiched between layers of stainless steel is a thick core of pure aluminum that spreads heat evenly across the bottoms of pots and pans and all the way up the sides. The interior is highly polished 18/10 stainless steel, so it's stick-resistant as well as stain- and corrosion-resistant. The exterior is made of gleaming, magnetic stainless steel that works on induction as well as conventional stovetops, and, with care, remains beautiful during this cookware's lifetime warranty against defects--and beyond.

This classic, straight-sided, 3-quart saut¨¦ pan makes clear why All-Clad Stainless is so popular. It's 10-1/2 inches in diameter and 2-1/2 inches deep, perfect for saut¨¦ing veal scallops with chanterelles or garlic-scented greens. Its polished 18/10 stainless-steel pan and lid handles are riveted for strength and grooved on the top for comfort. Like the pan's loop handle, the long handle (holed for hanging on a hook or peg) stays cool on the stovetop but won't be harmed by an oven's heat. Although Stainless cookware is dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. --Fred Brack

From the Manufacturer
All-Clad Stainless Construction
Each piece of All-Clad cookware features a unique metal bonding construction. All-Clad Stainless cookware sandwiches a thick core of three separate layers of aluminum between an easy-to-clean, highly polished 18/10 stainless-steel cooking surface and a magnetic stainless-steel exterior. The aluminum core retains heat and evenly distributes it along the bottom and up the sidewalls of the cookware. The stainless interior is stick-resistant and cleans easily. The magnetic stainless-steel exterior gives the cookware a gleaming finish. All-Clad Stainless also features the company¡¯s signature "stay-cool" long handles, lids fashioned from gleaming 18/10 stainless steel, and highly durable stainless-steel rivets. All-Clad Stainless cookware is one of five collections from All-Clad Metalcrafters. Designed to work on conventional gas and electric ranges, as well as induction cooktops, All-Clad Stainless cookware is the best-selling collection in a full line that includes All-Clad LTD, Cop-R-Chef, Master Chef 2, and Copper Core.

Features and Benefits
All-Clad pans with a stainless interior cooking surface are oven-safe up to 500 degrees. All-Clad pans with a non-stick cooking surface are oven-safe up to 400 degrees, but should not be used under the broiler. We recommend using a low to medium temperature when cooking with All-Clad. Higher heats are not necessary and may cause discoloration (see cleaning instructions below). Other features include:

  • Beautifully polished, magnetic stainless exterior layer.
  • Pure aluminum core that not only covers the bottom of the pan but also extends up the sides. This allows for great heat conductivity as well as an even heat distribution so you won¡¯t have "hot spots" when cooking.
  • Stainless-steel interior layer/cooking surface.
  • Long, polished stainless, stay-cool handles.
  • Sturdy, non-corrosive stainless-steel rivets won't react with foods.
  • Polished stainless-steel lids fit evenly with the pan¡¯s edges to seal in flavor of your foods.
  • The All-Clad Stainless collection is compatible with an induction stovetop (with the exception of a few pieces) in addition to gas and electric stovetops.
  • The Stainless collection is dishwasher-safe, excluding pieces with a nonstick cooking surface.

Warranty
From date of purchase, All-Clad guarantees to repair or replace any item found defective in material, construction or workmanship under normal use and following care instructions. This excludes damage from misuse or abuse. Minor imperfections and slight color variations are normal.

Cleaning Instructions
For daily cleaning, warm soapy water is sufficient. Clean your All-Clad thoroughly after each use. Food films left of the pan may cause discoloration and sticking. To get rid of stuck-on food or discoloration and stains from using too high of a heat, we recommend cleaning your All-Clad with a product called Bar Keeper¡¯s Friend. To use the Bar Keeper¡¯s Friend, simply use a soft cloth or sponge and water and make into a soupy paste. This can be used on the interior, as well as the exterior of your All-Clad (excluding the Cop-R-Chef). The Bar Keeper¡¯s Friend can also be used on the exterior of the All-Clad Stainless collection, LTD collection, and MC2 collection. For cleaning of the Cop-R-Chef exterior, simply use a brass/copper cleaner. If your water has a high iron content, you may notice a rusty discoloration. Use Bar Keeper¡¯s Friend to remove it.

All-Clad Stainless Selection
In recent years, a professional-size 14-inch fry pan was added to the Stainless fry pan assortment, as well as several popular specialty pans, including: the small-size petite brasier with a dome-shaped lid; petite roti roasting pan; and the beautiful, large-capacity Dutch oven and French oven oval roasting pan with roasting rack. Both of these one-pot comfort food specialty pans comes with All-Clad¡¯s popular high dome-shaped lid. Other specialty pans include a larger brasier pan with domed-shape lid; a complete family of round-shaped saucier saucepans for versatile stove-top cooking; a flare-sided Windsor pan in two sizes, designed for reduction and the creation of rich sauces; and a contemporary "Soup for Two" 3-1/2-quart soup pot; casseroles; an open stir fry; a versatile wok-style chef¡¯s pan; and a "Pasta Pentola" 7-quart stockpot with colander insert and lid. All saucepans, casseroles, saut¨¦ pans, stock pots, and specialty items come with lids. Double boiler and steamer inserts, including the large steamer insert for 6-quart, 8-quart and 12-quart stockpots, are available as well. Stainless cookware sets are available in various sizes, from a starter 5-piece to a complete 10-piece set.

Customer Reviews:

  • Love this Pan!!
    My pasta sauce and a lot of frying start here. This pan is very deep. It fits two hallibut steaks perfectly with room for building a sauce. I think my sides are 3 1/4" high. It came with tongs and a splatter screen which come in handy.

    It is an impressive pan -- beautiful and heavy. It heats evenly and quickly. I love All Clad quality. Diswasher safe. To keep it sparkling, use Bar Keeper's Friend....more info
  • Measure it!!!
    I've never liked my All-clad 3qt saute because it's too shallow. The 4qt seemed deeper so I bought one however when I got it home it appeared only slightly taller than my 3qt. The 4qt should measure 3 1/4in, according to All-Clad, but the one I bought was 2 7/8. I tried to exchange it but all 5 in stock measured the same so I ended up returning it. By my calculation, this is a 3.5 quart pan. If you have a 3qt, this isn't worth spending your money on....more info

  • A Kitchen Essential
    I purchased the 4-quart saute pan a few months ago, and I have used it at least 3 times a week since then. I agree with the other reviewers that the taller sides are a big advantage over the 3-quart pan. This allows you to toss your cooked pasta into the sauce, poach meats and do various other tasks without worrying about the liquid spilling over, which is what concerned me about the 3-quart pan. I found that the 6-quart pan was far too large for my burners. I have cooked pasta sauces, chicken breasts, chicken thighs, meatballs, poached chicken, you name it, in this pan. It is extremely versatile and worth the price and the amount of space it takes up in the cabinet. If you have limited kitchen cabinet space, as I do, I think that this saute pan, a large non-stick skillet (All-Clad has a great one in its stainless collection), the 3- or 4-quart sauce pan and a large Le Creuset french oven is all you need for most stovetop cooking jobs....more info
  • Great for smother frying or where you need a lid
    This pan is the one you want for smother frying and braising things (like frying cubed steak then simmering in gravy, making smother fried pork chops, or making a pot roast.)

    The straight sides are more useful for frying things then simmering them in sauces. That way, you don't have meat or veggies riding up on the sloped sides of the pan and not cooking all the way through.

    The pan does not brown and fry quite as well as the standard fry pan -- so it is not really a substitute for your frypan for making burgers, and fast cooked type foods like chicken breast, pan fried steaks, and stir fry. (that is why it got the 4 stars) Because of the straight up sides, it really is closer in capacity for frying to the 10" fry pan.

    Size wise, this pan holds enough for approximately 4 good sized portions of meat, gravy, and veggies....more info

  • Excellent
    All-Clad is a huge thumbs up for me. Made osso buco in this pan and it was a dream. The only thing about this pan is how incredibly HEAVY it is. It would have been 5 stars otherwise....more info
  • Great cookware
    We have tried a lot of brands of good cookware, but this beats them all! Excellent finish, solid construction. Very useful size, too. We will buy more of this brand and type....more info
  • Great Saute Pan!!!
    I am a big fan of All-Clad (have several of their pans) and bought this pan for my father, who's becoming quite an adventurous cook since his retirement. We tried it out right after Christmas making a tomato sauce for homemade pizza, sauteing the onions and garlic to a sweet golden brown before adding the crushed tomatoes with puree. My father was particularly impressed with the fact that the pan distributed the heat so evenly that nothing burned or stuck despite being left unattended at times. The size is perfect for sauteing lots of things simultaneously or providing lots of surface area for a quick reduction. And the lid fits nice and snug--it could definitely be used as a braising pan, particularly in the oven. It's now his favorite pan and I'm sure he'll make lots of great meals with it! ...more info
  • Love this pan!
    I absolutely love this pan. There is no problem with food sticking to the pan because it is such a high quality product. It is 200% better than any non-stick pan that always seems to get scratched and peels. The only thing is, I wish it was a 14 inch pan instead of 12 inch - but regardless, I use it for everything and love it. I will continue to buy All-clad pans in the future....more info
  • Nice product, well made
    I really like the weight of this product, it is heavy but not overly so, and well balanced on the range. I believe All Clad is still made in the US (or at least this product is) which I appreciate. I have a lot of All Clad pans, I have never been disappointed with them. They are more costly than most pans, but I will probably have them for life....more info
  • A Great Saut¨¦ Pan for Those Large Portions
    I got my 6 quart All Clad Stainless saut¨¦ pan about a month ago and I've been using it frequently. I cook large batches of meatballs with it and I'm impressed with how the meat does not stick, how well the meat browns, and how well the pan reaches temperature and returns to temperature, even as I place all the meatballs at once instead of in batches like with my old Calphalon 5 quart saut¨¦ pan.

    My only suggestion to All Clad to improve this pan is to replace the long handle (the handle they use with the stainless line) with the longer handle they use with their Copper Core line (when the pan is 6 quarts). I notice that it is easier to handle my heavier Copper Core pieces than my stainless and LTD pieces when the pan is full. And the longer handle should also make it easier to remove the pan from the cache rack when the lid is stored through the handle. All Clad should also think about putting the longer handle on the larger pieces.

    This pan is a keeper.

    UPDATE January 4, 2008: I just converted from an electric range to a (natural) gas range (mine is a Wolf). When I used this saut¨¦ pan on my old electric range, I needed to rotate the pan while cooking since I placed it over two coil elements to try to keep the pan sufficiently heated. Now that I have a natural gas range, the French skillet's entire bottom heats evenly over a single gas burner. I no longer have to rotate the saut¨¦ pan.

    One last note. If you have a gas range (mine is a Wolf) I really noticed just how quickly the Copper Core pans heats up when compared with the stainless and LTD lines. When I was using an electric range, I appreciated how quickly the Copper Cores heat up. My suggestion is to hold each pan and determine whether you can comfortably handle the weight of each pan and whether the pan's handles are comfortable to you. I like the longer length handles on the All Clad Copper Core pans. All Clad uses a different length and style handle for their LTD and stainless series than the Copper Core series. That standard length handle does not work for the larger saut¨¦ (6 Qt), sauce (4 quart), and fry (14") pans: it's just too short. It's all right for their other pans.

  • Excellent Saute Pan! Love it!
    To be honest if this pan didn't come in the set I bought I probably would not have it. Thank goodness it did because it turns out that I love it. It is great for sauted spinach, veal or chicken picatta, you will find you more uses for this pan everytime you open the cabinet. It heats evenly and is very easy to clean. As all All Clad is, this pan is excellent quality and very well made. I have just about every All Clad item made and love them all. Well worth the money and designed to last a lifetime. It also comes with a lifetime warranty. How can you go wrong?

    Also, if you should get something stuck to the stainless steel use a product called "Bar Keepers Friend" to clean it. Most supermarkets have it and Kitchen Etc. and Bed, Bath and Beyond carry it too. The container (like a Comet can) is gold with blue and white writing. All Clad recommends it for cleaning stainless steel and it works like a dream and is very inexpensive....more info

  • Great product
    Previously I had a Calphalon saute pan in this size and used it for a number of years although it warped shortly after I purchased it. The All-Clad pan is noticeably heavier than the Calphalon product and I've had no problem with warping yet. I'm careful not to run cold water into a hot pan as that can cause it to warp and to cook at a reasonable temperature. Also the lighter color of the stainless steel (as opposed to the dark anodized Calphalon product) makes it easier to insure that it's been properly deglazed, capturing all the nice browned bits into the completed dish. I recently replaced my Calphalon skillet with an All-Clad one for similar reasons. I'm sold on the All-Clad product....more info
  • All Clad versus Calphalon One
    I own both All Clad and Calphalon One. I know there are a lot of All Clad vs. Calphalon One discussions/debates. My personal experience is both are really good and you can't go wrong with any one of them. I am not a professional cook - so it's purely a point of view from a person who wants to learn more in cooking.

    A few points:
    1. Clean-up - I think Calphalon One is easier to clean, just soak it in hot sudsy water for 15-30 mins and the remains will fall off. Even I didn't make a mess, I need to clean my All Clad with Bar Keeper's Friend (BKF). I use BKF on my Calphalon One only when the mess is really bad.
    2. Time to heat up - For some reason, my All Clad pan heats up quicker than my Calphalon One pan. But the time difference is very small.
    3. Level of "stickiness" - To me, changing from non-stick to stainless steel and hard anodized aluminum is smooth and easy. As long as you follow instructions, sunny-side-up eggs do not stick on both brands. I have yet to try scrambled eggs (I think I shouldn't try, but I am really curious)...
    4. Handle - I read that some people have problems with All Clad handles. To me, no problem at all! Maybe I am used to holding the pan back-handed and the All Clad handle just fits nicely. Calphalon One handle is also great - haven't heard any complaints at all.
    5. Aesthetic issue - Since this line of All Clad is stainless steel (very shiny), it will show its normal tear and wear easier when compared to Calphalon One, which has a much darker color & non-shiny surface. Just look at your stainless steel kettle and you may get what I mean - It's just very hard to avoid those normal tear and wear and it shows because the surface is shiny. I only use wooden utensils and no steel wool nor abrasive cleansers! Of course, those normal tear and wear will not affect the quality of the cookware.

    Conclusion: You can't go wrong with any one of them. The price difference, in general, is very small between the 2 lines. Personally, I prefer Calphalon One since it's much easier to clean and it doesn't show normal tear and wear easily (relative to All Clad stainless steel). And I don't mind waiting for just a little bit longer for the pan to heat up.

    Hope this helps someone in making purchase decisions!...more info

  • Part of a Set
    This pan was part of a larger set. Although I mostly cook for one, I find this pan small for a saute. I would have rather had a 3-quart pan.

    With that said, I still have to praise the All-Clad quality. The pan heats evenly and quickly. Clean up is easy because I can put it into the dishwasher. ...more info
  • "Jack of All Trades" Pan
    I love All Clad cookware & was in the market to add to my collection. Initially, I wanted to buy the 14" fry pan, a wonderful item. The store owner asked me how I would use the 14" fry pan & I told her I wanted to fry & saute in it. I also mentioned I'd try to use it to braise as well. Given the fact I needed a large pan to serve mulitple purposes, the owner recommended I consider purchasing this 6 qt. saute pan instead. The pan has a diameter as wide as the 14" fry pan, & can be used for frying, sauteing & braising. Additionally, the cover is included in the price of this 6 qt. saute pan, unlike the 14" fry pan, which doesn't come w/a cover. I'm aware of the differences between a fry vs saute vs braising pan, but not being a purist & also wanting to conserve on storage space & cost, I bought this 6 qt saute pan. The store owner was correct, I use this pan all the time & it works perfectly as a fry, saute or braise pan. Given it's an All Clad, it has 1st class performance for heating quickly & evenly, cooking perfectly & cleaning up in a flash. Not to mention its beauty & perfect constuction, along with a lifetime guarantee. Don't hesitate to buy this pan!!!...more info
