Beautiful utility hallmarks this 4qt gem. ATK did not test this pan when it awarded the Tramontina pan best bang for the buck. ATK used the “Chef Classic” which is not a full tri-clad pan but a layered base only pan. I Ordered both this and the Tramontina pan to compare to the All-Clad I already own.I chose the Cuisinart because….It is much prettier than the All-Clad or TramontinaThe handle isn’t as huge and “clumsy” as the Tramontina,The All-Clad pan has a tapered thin handle which makes it much more difficult to control heavy ingredients than the CuisinartThe Cuisinart has a pouring lip the All-Clad does not. The lack of a lip makes the All-Clad a messy nuisance and nearly useless in an active kitchen environment.The Tramontina lip is huge and ridiculous looking yet does not seal better or serve any other functional purposeThe Cuisinarts’ corners can be reached with a whisk just as easily as my All-Clad. This was one of ATK’s test criteriaI already have an entire set of Cuisinart Chef Classic pans so the lids are all interchangeableI have owned my Chef Classic pans since before Cuisinart produced Multiclad pans. Other than the sides getting very hot like a commercial black steel pan and can scorch cream-based ingredients if you don’t know what you are doing (as mentioned by ATK) I have had no complaintsThe Cuisinart performs EQUALLY AS WELL as the All-clad and costs less than either of the other pans.One plus for the Tramontina…It has a helper handle which made emptying the pans’ contents into a colander or down the drain much easier. I found that an oven glove or pot holder worked well with all pans in these situations as even the helper handle got very hot on a gas stoveFinal note: Are there any suckers out there that want to buy my used All-Clad pans so I can go buy the entire set of the Cuisinart Multiclad Pro…and still have enough money to buy a new dishwasher?
I wanted to switch over to a NON-nonstick coated pan for cooking to avoid all the harmful chemicals. Knowing that this has 3-ply construction on the bottom as well as the sides I thought it’ll help cook food better than the pans which only have 3-ply on the base. I wasn’t sure though if the food will stick, but to my surprise, it doesn’t. I made an Indian cauliflower curry with lot of spices (but less oil) to test if it has any burning or sticking issues. No issues so far. Only downside is that this pan is significantly heavier in comparison to non-stick/ceramic/hard-anodized pans that I own. But oh well at least I know the nonstick chemicals aren’t leeching into my food.
I was looking for a set of stainless sauce pans to replace my very aged Magnalite aluminum set which has pitted badly. I wanted fully clad stainless cookware. I looked at All-Clad Stainless, Cuisinart Multiclad Pro, Calphalon Triply, and the Tramontina Triply. I wanted a rolled lip to make pouring easier so that eliminated the All-Clad and Tramontina entries. Not sure which of the remaining two I wanted, I bought one each of the Cuisinart Multiclad Pro and the Calphalon Triply Stainless to test.After using each about a half dozen times, I was pleased with the performance of both. Neither seems to have any significant performance advantage over the other. Both heated evenly, were solidly built, and were comfortable to lift and pour. Neither handle heated too much during cooking even after simmering tomato sauce for hours. The Cuisinart’s handle was warmer than the Calphalon but not by much. I did find the Calphalon slightly easier to clean food that had become stuck to the surface. However, that was negated by having a third handle rivet to clean around. Essentially, performance was the same from both lines. For those that are concerned with the appearance of the cookware, the Cuisinart Multiclad line has a brushed finish. The Calphalon Triply are polished to a mirror finish. Both were fine with me as I don’t much worry about how they look.I chose the Cuisinart sauce pans for a few reasons: lids, pan sizes, and price. I like the Cuisinart’s metal lids more than the Calphalon’s glass ones. I don’t understand the benefit of glass lids. They can’t take the higher heats that metal can, can break if dropped or banged, and fog up when used so you can’t see what’s in the pot, anyway. The sauce pans in the Cuisinart line are available in 1.5, 2, 3, and 4 quart sizes. That’s perfect for my needs. The Calphalon was availabe in 1, 1.5, 2.5, and 4.5 quart sizes. I really wanted something in the 3-3.5 quart range since I use it frequently but it is not available from Calphalon. They do make a 3 quart Chef’s pan but I didn’t want the curved bottom. The Cuisinart Multiclad sauce pans are priced approximately 50% less than the Calphalon Triply pans. Since they performed evenly well, the Cuisinart Multiclad Pro seemed to fit my needs best.
