No. You can cook on all of our conventional cookware with metal, plastic or wood utensils
• Always cook on a low or low-medium heat.
• Never use a nonstick pan under a grill.
• Never leave any pan unattended on top of the stove or in the oven.
• Do not use metal utensils.
• Do not use abrasive cleaners or metallic scrubbing pads or brushes.
• Do not use aerosol spray oils on your nonstick cookware.
• Do not put your nonstick cookware in the dishwasher.
• Clean any cooking residue with a mixture of baking soda and water.
Do not put your non-stick cookware in the dishwasher because high heat and harsh detergents will corrode and dry out the surface. Almost all non-stick problems are related to a build up of visible and/or invisible layer of cooking residue on the non-stick surface.
We recommend cleaning the non-stick with a paste made of equal parts bicarbonate of soda and water.
Rub in a circular motion with a non-metallic scrubbing/cleaning pad recommended as being safe for use on non-stick surfaces, or perhaps a soft brush such as a vegetable brush.
Then rinse well with water.
If the bicarbonate of soda mixture starts turning brown, you are on the right track.
Rinse well with cool water and dry. Then condition the non-stick surface by wiping a little vegetable oil around the surface with a paper kitchen towel.
Wipe off any excess.​
​While we recommend hand washing, Copper-Core is dishwasher-safe. The copper band will tarnish with dishwasher use and will need polished with a commercial cleaner to restore its luster. I you choose to wash your Copper-Core in the dishwasher we recommend using detergents free of lemon and chlorine additives.
Yes but the Copper band could tarnish.
1. All-Clad has a policy of manufacturing all of its bonded cookware in the USA. This means that it purchases its metals only from US suppliers and bonds them at its own rolling mill on-site in Canonsburg PA. It then forms them at the same location into high performance cooking vessels.
2. All-Clad is the originator of bonded cookware technology and is committed to investing in bonded cookware manufactured solely in the USA.
3. There are areas in which All-Clad does not manufacture in the USA. These are:
- Where the bonding of metals is not required for superior cooking performance (E.g. tools, accessories).
- On regular non-bonded components where making them in the USA would add to the retail price but not generally to performance.
- Where manufacturing constraints exist at the Canonsburg plant (E.g electrical kitchen appliances).
4. All-Clad's tools, accessories or electrical kitchen appliances, are manufactured by select partners overseas qualified carefully by All-Clad with highest quality controls.
The cooking surface of All-Clad cookware is made from high-quality 18/10 stainless steel, a proprietary formulation of 304 grade stainless steel specially adapted to meet All-Clad specifications regarding grain size, texture, alloy content, and other physical properties that guarantee the superb culinary performance that makes All-Clad the world's finest cookware. All stainless steel used by All-Clad is certified to meet National Standard ISO 9000 (International Organization for Standardization) for all 304 series stainless steel intended for use with food. Every "melt" by our steel suppliers is tested and certified to meet the ASTM 240 (American Society for Testing and Materials) standards.
All-Clad's nonstick surfaces do not have harmful PFOA gases. The quality of our cookware eliminates hot spots that can damage nonstick and cause the surface to burn and flake off. When used responsibly, nonstick cookware poses no threat to people or animals and can be useful in creating a healthy and well-balanced diet.
