I wanted to replace some of my 28 year old original All Clad Master Chef (brushed aluminum exterior, stainless interior) with the all stainless AC. Wanted prettier pots on the stove and to be ready to move to induction cooktop in the future. Picked up an AC all stainless 2 qt saucier with lid for $100 at Sur La Table at Christmas as a present for me. First thing I noticed is it seems lighter in weight, and the handle is also lighter and less comfortable. Made Cream of Wheat (with water) once and the pan completely discolored. Brought it back to SLT and the employees were agast. I'm very disappointed in the recent feel and apparant quality of MC. When did they change? Has anyone else had these problems??
