Handles for Cuisinart Multiclad

chicksterJanuary 25, 2007

Hello owners of Cuisinart Multiclad cookware! Can you please provide some insight as to the comfort of the handles? I'm looking for some stainless steel cookware and have found the All-Clad handles to be too uncomfortable for my small hands. The Cuisinart Multiclad set seems to be a very good deal, but I have only seen them at Amazon and thus cannot try them out. While we're at it, feel free to provide feedback on the performance of the entire pan, not just the handles! Thanks for any help you can provide!

I have two pieces of Multiclad (10" fry pan and 14" wok)and a couple of Chef's Classic. I compared the handles of the Cuisinart product to All-Clad and found AC uncomfortable. They're rather sharp if your hands are small. The Multiclad is tapered from pan to tip and does not "curl" up. There is an indent for your thumb so tossing pan contents is easy.

Overall performance of Multiclad is great. I would not hesitate to buy more. Amazon.com has some sales so watch the prices. I think I got the wok for less than $50. I know I paid $30 for the fry pan.

The Chef's Classic has a different handle but it's similar in comfort. Performance is ok, considering it's not clad. Not bad pans; I would recommend them (and have). TJMaxx/Marshalls/HomeGoods has decent prices on Chef's Classic and would be a place to start to check out the handles.
