All-Clad’s Copper Core cookware features bonded five-ply construction that combines the superior culinary performance of copper with the cleaning ease of stainless steel. This versatile 4-qt. pan combines the rounded sides of a French skillet with the height and wide surface area of a deep sauté pan. Ideal for preparing pasta sauces and then tossing in the pasta before serving, it's also perfect for cooking family-sized stir-fries and risottos and one-pan meals like stews, chilies and oven-baked casseroles.

  • Five-ply construction of securely bonded metals: a thick, extremely heat-responsive copper core sandwiched between two layers of highly conductive aluminum, with stainless-steel exterior and interiors.
  • Copper core allows for the quickest heat-up time of any metal, maximum temperature control and rapid, even heat distribution.
  • A ring of copper adds a finishing touch to the gleaming exterior.
  • 18/10 stainless-steel interior won’t react with foods and allows for easy cleanup.
  • Magnetic stainless-steel exterior for durability and dishwasher-safe ease.
  • Ideal for use on any type of cooktop, including induction.
  • Flat lid locks in moisture.
  • Improved stay-cool stick handle with finger guard for balance and control.
  • Rim is shaped to allow for dripless pouring.
  • Pan size etched on base for quick identification.
  • Handcrafted in the USA.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, all around Perfect size for a family of 6 people. The sides are sloped at a great angle for stir fry, one pot meals, sauces, etc. It holds its heat, and clean up is easy. Good quality construction. Very sturdy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful pan I love the All-Clad copper core pans and this design in particular is amazing. Just the right size for most recipes and very efficient use of the surface area of the pan.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Copper Core Essential Pan This is kind of like a 4-Qt saucier pan. Unlike the 2/3-Qt saucier pans, it has higher sides which makes it a really nice all-in-one pan (Fry oil doesn't get all over the place). My first dish was a simple Pad Thai. I was able to lightly fry peanuts, stir fry chicken, vegetables, noodles, and then bring it together with the sauce. Too easy, and the wife was ecstatic with the result. Cleanup was simple...soak it in dish washing liquid for 10 minutes, remove the "blemishes" with bar keeper's friend and hand wash with dish washing liquid. Looks like new. I really like the pan. I think it provides quite a bit of versatility, the heat response is terrific, and I would buy it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential may not be an overstatement. I saw this pan at one of their stores lurking on the shelf with all the other copper core pans. Something about it stood out from the rest. I think it was the way the rounded sides came up to a height above the sauté pans it was setting beside. Sure I have similar capacity pans that would work, had been working just fine. Along with a good shape there was good balance and feel matching its looks so I brought it home & gave it a try. "A try" is the operative phrase as now it's the first pan my wife grabs relegating me to the old pans. "Essentially" she said I needed to get one for her if I wanted to use mine. In that one use I found functionality really was good. Easy to flip items being sautéed & deep enough to cook down green leafy vegetables that start piled high & cook down to a more manageable level. I'm going to have to get another one of these!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite pan A good size and easy to clean. A little heavy but manageable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best pan in my house I bought 4 pieces of the All-Clad copper core when they were on sale last month. I picked this pan because it was large and we have a large family. It is the pan we use almost every day. It is always dirty, I wish I had two. If you only buy one piece, buy this one. You can make sauces, then add the cooked pasta and the pan is big enough to hold both. Love love love this pan.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have! I went to a WS demonstration and saw the Essential Pan. I knew I had to purchase it! Initially I bought the d5 version and was pleased with my purchase; however, shortly thereafter All Clad offered the same pan in the Copper Core Collection. As most of my cookware is Copper Core, I exchanged my d5 for this one and couldn't be happier! The quality is simply exceptional. You'll LOVE this piece.
