anodized aluminum with stainless interior vs multi-ply cookware

jann10333 | Dec 26, 200906:57 AM     3

searching for a new 5 quart saute pan. I had decided on Cusinart multi-ply(like the price and lip over all clad) then saw a Cusinart anodized with a stainless interior. Now wondering what the actual benefit of the outer stainless ply on the multi-ply is other than looks? Since aluminum is the major heat conductor for both, would the anodized with stainless interior be just as good, or maybe even better given the durability ? the pans are identical, same warranty etc, the aluminum goes up the sides to the top of the pan in both cases.
thanks for any opinions
