I am thinking of buying a few items from All-Clad's copper core line. I mostly use Caphalon's non-stick right now (bought a set a few years ago on sale) and le Creuset pots and am looking to upgrade. I'd love to get copper, but am bothered about the maintenance.
Does anyone have any comments on the copper core line?
Has anyone actually ordered on-line from the All-Clad outlet store?
I looked through some old posts and someone said that the scratches on the merchandise ran from very apparent (which I definitely don't want; would rather pay full price for perfect pans) to small (which is fine). I'm worried, though, that by ordering on-line, I'll get the worse stuff (although I suppose I could call and ask a sales person to pick out items for me). Any advice?
