All-Clad cookware is a brand of handcrafted, bonded metal cookware. On its website, All-Clad Metalcrafters proclaims that it is "the only bonded cookware manufacturer who utilizes American craftsmen and American-made metals to produce a complete line of finished bonded cookware products."
All-Clad produces premium cookware for the professional chef or home gourmet. These products tend to be more expensive than other cookware, due to their handcrafting and materials.
All-Clad Metalcrafters was established in 1971 by John Ulam, who discovered a new way to bond (or "clad") metals into a more durable and efficient form of cookware.
All-Clad makes several lines of products using various mixes of copper, stainless steel and aluminum. All-Clad attests to the safety of both its aluminum and nonstick surface materials.
All-Clad products are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes intended for both stove-top and oven use. Several product lines offer frying pans with nonstick finishes. All-Clad also makes specialty items such as fondue pots and tagines, tools and countertop electrics such as slow cookers.
The primary benefits of All-Clad cookware are (1) its more efficient cooking, due to the unique combination of metals; and (2) the lifetime warranty of All-Clad products.
