I registered for some All-Clad (Master Chef) but as has been mentioned a few times already they are being discontinued (reasoning, according to my BB&B contact is the small parts of the cookware are made in China and will be now be completely mfg in the USA!) and I have just found out that it is all out from the stores near me. My shower is in a month and good cookware is what I am most excited about/need most desparately.
I love All-Clad and am not sure if I will take it off yet or not, but there are other brands of SS that are not being discontinued and I am willing to get something else mostly because of the handle. Too bad about the brushed metal though, I really like that on the MC2.
So, can anyone tell me if they have used All-Clad as well as any of the below and what your thoughts are? This is stainless steel only.
- Calphalon (not a fan of the regular non-stick black cookware but will consider giving their SS a chance)
- Sitram (never heard of them)
- Le Crueset
- Culinary Institute of America (not familiar with this name at all either)
