how to get food not to stick in new all clad pan?

addicted2cake | Nov 18, 201005:52 AM     13

Hi everyone,

I recently bought an Allclad simmer and saute pan. I have no problems with the simmer and saute part as nothing sticks and clean up is a breeze. I think I'm doing something wrong, though, when I just want to brown chicken or beef cubes. My food is sticking. I have a ceramic/glass stove top (hate it, but not changing any time soon) and I use low heat to preheat my pan. Then I add oil, let that heat up a bit, then add meat/chicken. Nice brown color and I love how quickly the pan heats up, but the sticking is perplexing. I would love to sear a steak or a salmon fillet (have never done either), but am afraid I'll screw it up. I've been cooking for years, but in nonstick pots and pans. This is my first venture into tri-clad cookware.

Thanks for your help!
