All-Clad Stainless 12-Inch Chef's Pan

Rick SolieDecember 4, 2009

$200 on Amazon.

I like the "chef's" pans because I can make pasta sauce in the pan and the high sides allow me to then dump in the noodles to finish cooking in the sauce. The one I have is OK, but it warps from time to time and I have to beat it back into shape with a piece of 2x4 and a rubber mallet (whump!). Won't last forever. I don't do real wok cooking so that's not a concern, and I don't need non-stick.

Any opinions/alternatives?

Saw an ad on cooking dot com today for a 12" All-Clad fry pan (not chef's pan) for $89.99. But since it isn't a chef's pan, may not be what you want.

Thanks. The chef's pans have higher sides than the frying pans (hence the high price, presumably).

I'm not sure why you can't dump noodles into spagetti sauce in a dutch oven or even a big saute pan but I know what its like to get used to a certain way of doing something that works for you.
This site has what you are looking for for 119.00 (no lid)
w/lid 142.80

Are you sure the bottom is the same size as the one you have?

Is it worth it? Dunno. I have a small All Clad sauce pan and a bunch of LeCreuset. I do really like the feel of my little All Clad. Seems quite sturdy.

There is an All Clad pan exclusive to williams-sonoma called the saute/simmer pan. It is a 4 qt capacity pan which sounds exactly what you are looking for. I have a large assortment of All Clad and Calphalon pans and ever since I bought this one from Williams-Sonoma, I swear it is the only one I use.
