Good cookware is worth it’s weight in gold. The more you use it, the better it should be. That’s why skimping on basics like saucepans is always a bad idea.
Of course, just because you’re not skimping doesn’t mean you’re not going to save money if you can. Wasting money is just foolish, and you are not a fool.
This is the good stuff. It’s three layers of bonded metal: pure aluminum sandwiched between a black anodized aluminum exterior and a stainless steel interior for excellent heat conduction in a non-reactive cooking surface. It even comes with a lifetime warranty.
Spend $250.00 on All-Clad LTD and you can even get a free bonus au gratin dish ($130.00 value, see site for details and restrictions) to boot. Or to cook in. It’s up to you, but I know what I would do.
As for this handsome, sturdy 4 quart saucepan with lid, it usually runs $210.00, but at Cooking.com right now you can get it for the bargain basement price of just $104.99.
All the looks, all the versatility, all the sturdiness, and all the extras for half the price? Now that’s what I call a good deal!
