All Clad Lagostina - -
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.
