Non-stick pans are great, allowing you to brown and caramelize food without having them stick to the cooking surface. Problem is, those non-stick coatings chip pretty easily, making it highly likely that you’ll need to replace the pans within the next couple of years. If you’re not quite into revamping your cookware every couple of years, you may want to check out All-Clad’s D3 Armor Frying Pan.
Like traditional non-stick pans, the new cookware minimizes the chances of having your food stick to the cooking surface, so you can brown that fish, chicken, or stuffed burger patty without having bits of it stuck all over the place. Unlike them, it does that without the Teflon coating, removing the chances of chipping the cookware and leaving it utterly useless.
The All-Clad D3 Armor Frying Pan derives its non-stick talents from a riveted bonded matrix on the cooking surface, preventing food from catching into the 18/10 stainless steel’s tiny gaps and pores the way they would on regular frying pans. It uses three layers of bonded metal (steel on the exterior and interior, with aluminum on the core) for fast and even heating, apart from giving it high levels of durability. Features include a broad surface for cooking multiple pieces of food, flared sides to facilitate turning food items, a rim shaped to allow dripless pouring, and a stick handle that stays cool throughout cooking. It comes in two sizes: 8- and 10-inches.
Available now, the All-Clad D3 Armor Frying Pan is priced starting at $99.95.
