The 5qt All-Clad Copper Core sauté pan is being offered at about 50% off at most places. Cutlery and More, which offers free shipping and no tax (outside Il) is running a 20% off sale with easily accessible code. I own this pot and at $199.98 delivered (instead of its typical +/- $500) I think it is incredible. And of course the 5qt sauté pan is my most used pot.

Just thought some might like to know.

what's the difference between these two?

one says 5 ply one says 3 ply

but the WS one only weighs 1.5 lbs so i cant imagine it being a true thick 5ply


G-man . . . others may disagree but I have not found allclad non-stick to be a very durable surface at all. I love all their other stuff but for non-stick I go to Calphalon or even scanpan.

I have one of each 8" omelet pan in my kitchen right now. The all clad is the newest and the worst performing in terms of maintain its non-stick properties (and, no, I never wash in dishwasher or use metal on them unlike your guests!!)

I have a couple of different d5 pans and they aren't super heavy. In general, I do prefer the d5 pans to the regular stainless ones.

Regarding non-stick, ironically I've had the best luck in terms of surface durability with Cuisinart. But right now I'm using Calphalon and All-Clad for the superior all-around performance. I find both to have about a 150-200 use lifespan, which means my 12-inch frying pan needs replacing every 2-3 years no matter what I do; but the others all last more than 5 years. (I do 90%+ of my cooking on stainless steel surfaces.) I don't like to spend a ton of money on non-stick stuff so the current non-stick 12" I'm using is >this< which I'm actually quite happy with. Williams Sonoma and Cutlery and More, and I think Sur La Table all also sell it under different names. (B1, NS1, HA1, etc. It's all the same thing.) It replaced a Calphalon Unison version and so far I like it better.

What do you guys use these pans for?

I've been using the same pan since 1978 and I use it several times a week. It's an old Griswold. Bought a Calphalon about 10 years ago but it lost its shape - became rounded and not flat on the bottom so I sent it back. They sent a replacement that I've never used. I figure it would be a nice gift for someone.

you can send it to me =)
Thanks for the tip and link. Didn't buy the sauté pan, but I did buy the All-Clad 13" Stainless Steel Non-Stick French Skillet. It was on sale, and with the additional 20% off and free shipping, I couldn't resist. Shipped it to Lewiston NY and picked it up yesterday. What a beautiful piece of cookware. I'm giving it its first workout in a few minutes.

That's the same one you've seen at my place, sunnylea. How much did you pay? I remember getting it for a steal at Macy's in Chicago 4-5 years ago for something ridiculous like $99USD, and that was when the dollar was at or close to par. Oh, and that was with lid.

Even at twice the price it's worth it. My favourite pan by far.

Wow, that's a phenomenal price. Mine worked out to $115 US with free shipping. No lid, though. I didn't see a lid for it on the site.
