What experts didn't like
Overheating could lead to discoloration/scorch marks.
- BestReviews
The most common complaint against the All-Clad is its price. And that’s a fair grievance: Similar offerings from Calphalon and Tramontina cost a fraction of what the All-Clad does.
- New York Times Wirecutter
Rivets are tricky to clean around.
