I received a piece of All Clad stainless for Christmas that I am not sure I want to keep. It came from Williams-Sonoma, so I went to the web to look at other options, I discovered that they no longer had the regular AC SS line; now they have an "exclusive" AC d5 SS, which of course is even more expensive than the old SS line.
Does anyone have any pieces of both the old and the new? If yes, have you found d5 to perform better? Ad copy claims "20% faster heating and more consistent results."
Most of my AC SS pieces are 5-7 years old and I've been happy with their performance . My current thinking is that if I decide I to return the pan, I'll simply return it and go elsewhere to buy another piece of the old line, but thought I would check to see if anyone had tried the d5 yet.
Thanks in advance for sharing your experiences, -sou
