MultiClad Pro

Elegant and contemporary, the Multiclad Pro line from Cuisinart consists of deluxe cookware for the professional home chef. The exteriors of the 18/10 stainless steel pots and pans feature a handsome brushed finish, while the interiors are mirror-polished for non-reactive, quick release of foods. The tri-ply Heat Surround technology sandwiches an aluminum core in the base and side walls for superior, even heating. You’ll also find solid cast stainless-steel handles that stay cool on the stovetop, tight-fitting stainless-steel lids, and drip-free pouring rims. Each piece is oven-safe to 500 degrees F, and the pans are safe for broiler-use, too.

This fabulous set consists of basics and more. The 1-1/2- and 3-quart saucepans with lids take care of everything from oatmeal to bechamel sauce, and the veggie steamer insert with its own lid fits the larger saucepan. Also included are 8- and 10-inch open skillets that turn out perfect grilled cheese, hamburgers, and crepes; 3-1/2-quart covered saute pan with a helper handle, great for braising meats and cooking fish fillets; and an 8-quart covered stockpot for stews and soups. Dishwasher-safe, this set has no coatings to flake off or plastic to melt, and will surely be passed down to the next generation. Cuisinart covers the Multiclad Pro set with a lifetime limited warranty against defects. –Ann Bieri

Some Average Guy "nww" says:

Make sense of so many options Navigating the cookware maze? Boil it down to 3 key decisions:1) Non-Stick vs. Anything ElseNon-Stick = Not dishwasher safe, average life of 2-8 years, some believe there are health concerns, a million color/style options. If you do decide to go nonstick, Anolon is arguably the best right now and at least a solid starting place to look.Anything Else = Ultimately you go stainless. There’s a bevy of reasons stainless is mandated in commercial world, sanitation and longevity being two. You can buy a stainless set that lasts, in theory, for life. Dishwasher safe. A lot of the latest offerings stick very little… and perform on par w/non-stick when using a light coating.Face it, you buy non-stick out of laziness. Well, I’d rather my dishwasher clean off the “stick” than my hand have to clean off the “non-stick”.2) Ok, so I’m going stainless! What now?Once again you have two choices… All Clad brand or Cuisinart…

Excellent Set of Cookware at a Great Price, Questionable Warranty Service Pros:+Really good looking (I greatly prefer the brushed exterior over polished)+Set includes a lid that will fit each pan (not all at the same time, though)+Curved lip for easy pouring+Includes exactly the pieces I’d want+Overall build quality rivals that of sets costing 2x the price or more+Will probably last a lifetimeCons:-Does take a bit of work to get used to and maintain (proper preheating and use of oil as well as a bit more elbow grease to clean over non-stick)-Questionable warranty (representative placed strong emphasis on the word “LIMITED” before “Lifetime”, customer pays shipping BOTH WAYS).After doing quite a bit of research, I decided to purchase this set of pans over any set I found locally or online. At 209 bucks, I really feel like this was a bargain (it’s worth 300, realistically), especially with its excellent and beautiful construction. It’s try-ply CLAD, which means…

So pleased! I ordered this set due to a great deal that was offered a few weeks back, making the set more affordable than the older model. This model, MCP-12N is the new version (with improved handle shaping and placement-I contacted Cuisinart to ask about the difference) of the MCP-12. I’ve always had cheap model Revereware, or bought scratch and dent pans from stores. This is the first nice set of cookware I’ve ever purchased. I was skeptical because I read ALL reviews on the older model. There were some negative ones, and I was leary. While affordable, they are still priced higher than what I’m used to buying. Oh-about price; I checked several places and Amazon’s price has yet to be beat.I was provided an estimated delivery date between the first and second week of November. Then Amazon sent me an email last week stating the pots would be available sooner. They arrived this past Monday, and I LOVE them! I’ve only cooked 3 meals so far, but I’ve used quite a bit of the pots…
