Is it the real thing-I don't think do.
I recently fell for the All-Clad Model 51125 offer-12" SS fry pan and lid for $99.95. It's all over the "net. I got mine from Cooking.com. I don't think it's first class All-Clad. I sent it back(at my expense) because it seemed light and flimsy. I went to a Local store that sells All-Clad and checked out the 12" fry pan that MSRPs for $155. It felt heavier(didn't weigh it) and was engraved with the All-Clad logo on the bottom. I sent an email ot A-0C and they rsponded that this pan is the same as the 5112 that Cook's Illustrated raves about. Still don't believe them. Anyone else have any experience with this piece of equipmnet. I notice the Amazon ad at the bottom of this page for the same pan!
It was at our local Dillard's store. Didn't think about it being
D5. I'm still confused but no matter what,I wasn't impressed with the AC fry pan even though Cook's Illustrated has it as the top one for several years.
I checked out the 12" $155 AC fry pan at the Dillard's web site and the details read three layers.
I got an email form someone at Cutleryandmore.com that explained the All-Clad situation somewhat. The company has redesigned the basic stainless steel line and will be discontinueing the old stuff. To differentiate the two they are now kniwn as Original SS and Stainless Steel. You can read about it at the All-Clad web site.
Anyone ahve any experience with Cuisinart Pro Multiclad fry pans? They have a 12" for $70 at Cand M. I ahve soem of the saucepans and really like them.
