Calphalon vs. All-Clad stainless?

josephnl | Feb 6, 2011 10:42 AM

I have essentially all Calphalon pots and pans at home, and am quite happy with them. I also have two LeC Dutch ovens, and a few non-stick pans that I use pretty much only for eggs. Whenever I watch cooks on TV do their thing, or go to stores like W/S or Sur la T, pretty much everyone uses or pushes stainless pans, especially All-Clad. Am I using inferior cookware? I seem to be able to do pretty much everything reasonably well in my Calphalon (the plain...not the non-stick). Is stainless really significantly better? Should I consider gradually replacing my Calphalon with All-Clad? What do you think...I'm beginning to get an inferiority complex!
