It’s time to Party!Party!Party!!
And what better way to entertain than with this stainless fondue set by All Clad.
It has a ceramic insert which allows you to melt a variety of sauces making it ideal for cheese fondue or chocolate dipping sauce and that’s because the ceramic helps to prevent the food from burning.
The outer fondue pot is made from 18/10 stainless steel so you know it will heat quickly and evenly.
And just so your guest don’t get confused with which fork is theirs, the top of each fondue fork is color coded. There are six slots in the pot so that you can slip your fork into a slot and it stands in an upright position.
The fondue pot has a 3-qt. capacity and the six, color-coded fondue forks, a stand and a sterno burner are included in the package.(the fuel is not included).
You know when you are buying All-Clad that you are buying quality, durability, functionality and just plain good looks.

All Clad are reknown for the quality of their products and the nonstick stainless Frittata pan is no exception.
The All-Clad Stainless non-stick frittata pan is ideal for making a tasty frittata, scrambled eggs or omlettes for breakfast or Sunday brunch.
This stainless steel pan has a nonstick interior which means your eggs won’t stick to the pan but will cleanly slip from the pan to the plate once they are cooked.
The large handles make it easy to take the pan from the stovetop to the table. And they are firmly rivetted to the sides of the pan.
The pan is ovenproof to 500° but make sure you do not place it directly under the broiler. So you can start cooking your frittata on the stove top and finish it off in the oven. This is a pan you will be sure to get a lot of use from.
Unfortunately the pan should not be placed in the dishwasher, however, it will clean up easily and simply when you hand wash it in mild soapy water.

The All Clad Copper Core Double Boiler is a relatively new product from All Clad. Their copper core range is one of the best so it is nice to see they have included a double boiler in the range. If you are looking for a less pricey All Clad Double Boiler then you can also see our review on the All Clad Stainless version – All Clad Stainless Double Boiler Review.
Double boilers are one of those must haves if you do a lot of baking and this All Clad Copper Core Boiler is one that you will have for a lifetime.
The good looks of the copper core range make this a beautiful piece of cookware to have in the kitchen and you will be proud to own this one.
The copper core range of cookware is made up of 5 layers of materials or what they call 5 ply construction. This is what makes it such a fantastic piece of cookware and why the price tag is so high.
The 5 layers are made up of stainless steel, aluminum and copper. The stainless steel comprises the inner cooking surface and the outer layer. Sandwiched between those two layers of stainless steel are a layer of copper and two layers of aluminum.
Both aluminum and copper are great conductors of heat which means foods cook evenly without hotspots. Copper is particularly good at reacting to temperature changes. So when you change the temperature on your stovetop the temperature of the pot immediately changes as well. This gives you greater control over your cooking.
This double boiler is fitted with a 1 1/2qt porcelain insert. This is an excellent material as it prevents burning and scalding of those delicate foods and sauces.
The pot itself is a 2qt and can be used on it’s own for other uses so it makes this set very versatile.
Both the insert and the saucepan itself come with lids.

Windsor saucepans have flared sides and are used primarily for creating sauces. This is because firstly the flared sides allow for greater evaporation of the sauce due to the greater surface area. So if you have sauces that need to be reduced then a Windsor saucepan is idea.
Secondly, the flared sides mean easier whisking as you pretty much have more room to move.
The All Clad Copper Core Windsor saucepn is the perfect example of a Windsor saucepan. First of all, it just looks absolutely gorgeous. You really can’t fault All Clad for the beauty of their products. Secondly, it has beautifully flared sides and a flared rim for drip free pouring.
The All Clad Copper Core range of cookware would have to be one of the best. This cookware is made from 5 layers of metals. The inner cooking surface and also the outer surface is made from 18/10 stainless steel.
Sandwiched between those are layers of aluminum and copper AND these layers extend up the sides of the saucepan. You don’t get this in a lot of cookware. Most have the aluminum or copper layer in the base of the pot only. In a nutshell, this really makes for outstanding cooking results.
Both aluminum and copper are good conductors of heat so foods cook evenly and without hot spots. The copper means that you have precise cooking control as it responds rapidly to temperature change. This is perfect when it comes to cooking sauces which can easily burn if not careful.
This isn’t cheap with prices around the $250-$300 mark but it is a beautiful piece of cookware that you will be proud to own.
