4508 This All-Clad stock pot is low rather than tall, which means it can go easily in the oven or be used for large stews on the stovetop. All-Clad stainless is a tri-ply of spun aluminum encased in stainless steel. It is a plating process which insures that the bond is permanent. You get the excellent heat distribution of aluminum but the inert quality and durability of the stainless steel.
Another advantage is that you can use any kind of utensil on this pan, including metal. All-Clad cookware is proudly made in America in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania.
