All Clad Lagostina - -

leffer Nov 22, 2010 04:28 PM

I was at Bloomingdales and found a good sale on all clad lagostina cookware. The salesguy told me it was made in Italy however good for the money . Big difference from All-Clad prices.

Can anyone provide info on it? I need it for induction and this seemed decent

I got the 8qt stockpot... (but can return it! - :))

    for what it's worth, I have a couple of lagostina pots that I bought (yikes) over 30 years ago and they are still used every single day and have held up beautifully - except for the plastic knob on the lids which are slightly cracking now. I don't know whether they have cheaper or more expensive lines, but my pots are still workhorses that get the job done.

      Do you have a magnet with you? If it sticks to the bottom of your pot then it'll work with induction.

      If it's all made in Italy, it's jaw-dropping cheap. 12" pan for $50, but without a helper handle. Too bad I don't need any of those.

      I believe they're going to have a sale again sometime next month (third time within the last 3 months or so already!) for those who are interested.

        I have a bunch of All Clad Stainless Steel (AC SS) Tri-Ply, one piece of the newer AC SS D5 line, and two of the Lagostina Melodia pots: the 4 qt soup and the 6 qt stock pot. I think the quality is very similar to the AC SS Tri-Ply, and I really like the handle design and flared rims. Is this the pot you bought?

        I purchased the Lagostina pots this last summer at Williams-Sonoma when they were clearing them out, so I've only been using them for about 3-4 months compared to having used the AC Tri-Ply for several years. So far I have used both the 4qt and 6qt pots for making soups and pasta, and have been really happy with them.

          Yes! That's it. I then went to Marshalls and found a Le Creuset 8 qt that would work on induction for $50.
          Difference is the look - obviously. I guess I just wondered why the line didnt sell - even at Williams-Sonoma. I do think its tri ply...
          Thanks for your info!

            That sounds like a great price for the Le Creuset tri-ply! How much was the Lagostina?
