Hi folks -- Chris Kimball's Milk Street is launching a line of 5-ply stainless steel cookware made by Regal Ware. They've had 3-ply pieces on the site for a while but this is a new line.
According to a promotional email: "It is made from 5-ply professional grade stainless steel sandwiched around a pure aluminum core... The magnetic stainless-steel exterior makes this premium cookware ideal for any cooking surface, including induction cooktops. (When rated against other top brands for induction cooking, this skillet was more efficient.) ... [Regal Ware has] been around 99 years (founded in 1919, hence the name of the cookware), and their cookware is made here in the USA. (They used to purchase rolls of metal from the All-Clad company before All-Clad started making their own cookware.) It’s a family-run business, and it’s a company that I am proud to partner with."
Eight-inch skillet is $125, 10-inch is $155, 12-inch is $205; covered saute, saucepans, and stockpot start at $260 up to $495.
I'm not seeing specifics on the ply thickness of the layers. Based on the descriptions, how does this stack up against others? What's Regal Ware's reputation?
