Scratched All-Clad d5 Frypan...

Voehlbros009 | Jan 11, 201512:43 PM     15

I've been scouring the internet for 2 days trying to find someone else who had this issue (or a solution) but have had no success. Upon researching the potential dangers in cooking with certain materials my wife and I decided to switch to stainless steel for the majority of our cooking and are adding 1 pan at a time. We bought a 12" All-Clad d5 frypan and the first day made some awesome eggs and then pan seared some chicken and threw it in the oven. After washing the pan with a wash cloth and soap I noticed that the bottom of the pan (exterior) now has a whole bunch of scratches on it. Did my stovetop or oven grate do this? We are using an electric coil stovetop (can't replace it...still renting), did my burner scratch the pan? I thought these things were indestructible and we somehow scratched it day 1.

So, any ideas as to how to fix this? I have considered getting a burner plate (aluminum, copper, etc.) to put on the burner while we use this pan, but we make a lot of eggs quickly in the morning and I'm concerned that the plate will slow down the speed at which the pan heats up dramatically.

Do I have to wait until I have a decent stove to get a decent pan?!

Thank you so much for any reply/help!
