Copper Core Construction
Copper Core combines the ideal benefits of copper heat conduction with the cleaning ease of stainless steel. Because this formula is a carefully-guarded All-Clad innovation, no other cookware in the world can match the performance standards of its unique bonded design.
Copper-Core's patented five-ply bonded design utilizes a copper center core to maximize heat conductivity and responsiveness. The copper ply is bonded to aluminum to enhance heat distribution while reducing weight. The bonded exterior and interior layers are highest-quality stainless steel, providing the ideal cooking surface, ease of cleaning, extreme durability and sculpturesque aesthetic appeal.
Care and Use
Before using for the first time, wash in hot, soapy water with a sponge or dishcloth. Rinse in hot water and dry thoroughly. Preheating:
Most recipes recommend placing our pots on low heat for one or two minutes before adding foods. Frying Without Natural Fats:
Things to Watch for When Frying Without Natural Fats:
- Preheat pot or pan for one to two minutes over low or medium heat.
- Add oil, butter, or margarine to the preheated vessel; just enough to cover the bottom surface.
- Add food for frying.
- Is your stove level?
- Is your pot clean?
- Is your heat set too high?
- Low to medium heat setting is recommended for optimal cooking performance.
To avoid the formation of small white dots or pits, bring liquids to a boil before adding salt, then stir well. Or, add salt after food has started to cook. Pitting does not interfere with cooking performance but can diminish the beauty of the stainless steel.Prevent Water Spotting:
After washing, rinse in hot water and dry immediately.Discoloration:
Overheating can cause brown or blue stains. Food films, if not removed, will cause discoloration on the pot when it is reheated. Large amounts of iron content in your water may cause your pot to look rusty.
CleaningCleaning the Stainless Steel Interior:
Immerse in warm water. Use a fine powder cleanser with water to form a paste. Apply paste using a soft cloth. Rub in a circular motion from the center outward. Wash in hot, soapy water, dry immediately. DO NOT USE oven cleaners or cleansers with chlorine bleach. DO NOT USE steel wool.
Cleaning the Stainless Steel Exterior:
The polished stainless steel exterior of Copper-Core requires very little care. It may be polished with one of the available commercial stainless steel cleaners, rubbing in a circular motion. Rinse in lukewarm water. We do not recommend using steel wool, steel scouring pads or harsh detergents. Nylon scrubbing pads are safe to use. You may wash Copper-Core in the dishwasher, but the copper band will tarnish.
