When I provided the link above, I was a little surprised by the cladding over aluminum. I could swear mine are clad over copper. But then I'm older than the Great Wall....
This is what the copper core looks like:
I have one of their 10" Copper core skillets that I picked up about 10 years ago at a Factory Outlet (I have no clue what the "Blemish" was - they were on sale and I got to pick it out). Was pricey, but I absolutely love it. Polishes up to "almost new" if I want to put the effort into it.Firm believer in "Mis-matched" Cookware. I have Le Cruset enameled CI, Lodge CI, All-Clad, and some old Revereware that I inherited from my Mother (Copper bottom that still polishes up and is probably 40+ years old).Each has a task that it performs better than the others.
Thanks, Tyson. I checked ours and they appear to be aluminum core. When did you buy your set? Ours were purchased almost 20 years ago. Do you know...when did the copper come out/go away?
What's the task of the Revere Ware? My mother has a full set that is 50+ years old.
new direct from manufacturer - Missen. I replaced everything with these. Allclad quality and fraction of price.John.
Thanks for the heads-up on this. Unfamiliar to me but it looks very interesting, and the reviews are great. https://www.misen.co/products/misen-cookware-sets?variant=47525341772For the past 20 yrs I've cooked almost everyday on my "Calphalon Commercial Hard-Anodized Aluminum" set, and it's still going strong. It's not non-stick, made specifically for searing and deglazing. Ruggedly built in America, cooks evenly, cleans up well, and reasonably priced. I have no experience with the premium sets discussed here, but I have absolutely no complaints and would recommend it to anyone who perhaps wants reliable quality at a lower price than All-Clad.EDIT: a quick online search suggests that this original set is no longer available. Non-stick version is, but I would stay away from that. http://www.calphalon.com/en-US/commercial-hard-anodized/calphalon-commercial-nonstick-13-piece-cookware-set-ca-1849156--1My set looks identical, except my lids are metal not glass, and the interior is not Non-Stick.When it comes time to replace it, I'll definitely look into the Misen.
