All-Clad d5 Brushed Stainless 8" Nonstick Fry Pan - BD55108NSR2
Originally designed to meet the demands of professional chefs, All-Clad continues to be the undisputed choice in four-star kitchens throughout the world. The cookware has exquisite lines, impeccable balance, meticulous hand-finishing, and superior heat-conductivity. Stainless with d5 technology, the latest line from All-Clad, now delivers unprecedented evenness of heat for uniform browning. This cookware boasts five layers of metal (alternating bands of aluminum and stainless steel) - this construction not only heats more evenly, but more quickly and retains heat longer to make the cookware more energy efficient, and more durable. There are two aluminum layers, one to conduct and one to sustain heat. The stainless-steel core diffuses heat and delivers consistent results. The non-stick interior prevents most foods from sticking and is easy to clean. The magnetic stainless steel exterior has a brushed finish and can be safely used on conventional gas and electric ranges, as well as on induction cooktops. The flared rim of the cookware is designed for easy, dripless pouring. This line also features newly-designed ergonomic handles that offer superb handling comfort and control. The skillet has sloping sides which make it easy to turn and remove foods, as well as encourage the rapid evaporation of moisture, so pan sauces reduce quickly and foods sear rather than steam. The non-stick skillet is ideal for searing delicate items which have a tendency to stick or break apart, such as fish, and for preparing pancakes, fried eggs, an omelette, or a crêpe. This non-stick product features a state-of-the art reinforced system rather than a simple coating. The surface of the substrate is blasted with an abrasive, which prepares the surface for better adherence. White hot particles of stainless steel are then sprayed onto the surface. Once these particles cool and harden, they become part of the surface of the substrate, and form a series of "peaks and valleys."
