Can I put my all clad in the oven?

I want to make a recipe that starts on the stove top then ends in the oven. The recipe calls for a cast iron dutch oven (probably like a le creuset) but the closest thing i have is my big all clad stainless steel sauce pot. Can i stick it in the oven? i looked on their web site and find no info regarding this.

  1. I don't use All-Clad myself but IIRC, it's all metal - no plastic or wooden handles - so you can put it in the oven at pretty much any temp short of the self-cleaning cycle. Since the lid won't sit as tightly as a cast-iron pot's, you might want to use aluminum foil under the lid (crimp it around the edge) to minimize steam leakage.

      No problem at all. In fact, I'd venture the heat is gentler on it than direct heat sources--such as burners--would be. Watch out, though! Because it's clad all the way up, those puppies get hot all over!

    2. Of course you can: it's all metal. I do this all the time.

      1. You can put the stainless steel All Clad for normal operations in the oven.

        Here is the information from All Clad website:
