The second generation of All-Clad's Master Chef line (MC2), this cookware combines brushed aluminum with stainless-steel accents for a contemporary look. Like All-Clad's other renowned cookware collections, Master Chef provides serious and professional cooks with all the virtues that make All-Clad's worldwide reputation unsurpassed. Key to its high performance is a three-ply, bonded construction. Sandwiched between the exterior and an 18/10 stainless-steel interior is a thick aluminum core that spreads heat evenly across the bottom of the pan and all the way up its sides. The interior is highly polished so it's stick- as well as corrosion-resistant. Handles, rivets, and tight-fitting lids are all gleaming stainless steel.
This 8-quart stockpot illustrates the Master Chef line's stylish yet practical design. Though not classically tall and narrow, it simmers soups and stocks and accommodates enough ragù Bolognese to feed all the relatives. It's also ideal for braising on the stovetop or in the oven under its polished lid. Because the aluminum core extends up the sides, foods cook uniformly, even though the pot is 5-1/4 inches deep (11 inches in diameter). And because the interior is nonreactive, tomatoes and other acidic foods won't taste metallic. Its lid and stay-cool loop handles are riveted for strength and won't be harmed by an oven's highest heat. The stockpot's rolled edge facilitates dripless pouring. Master Chef cookware carries a lifetime warranty against defects and should be hand washed. --Fred Brack
