Keltin, keep checking ebay. Sometimes you'll luck out and get a piece for a reasonable price. I got a small flat bottomed covered wok and a 1 qt. open sauce pan - the extent of my All Clad collection. I was at TJMaxx last week and saw a huge All Clad fry pan, a little scratched up - marked $299.99!

The most expensive fry pan that All Clad makes (12 inch Copper Core) goes for $225 brand new.

You can find super duper discounts on All Clad at Cookware and More.

I'm sure whatever they are charging for it, much of the price is for the cachet of her name. You can get better quality product for less money.

They call this a sauté pan, but I consider this style to be a fry pan. It’s $500 for the 6 Qt model!

And, when you buy All-Clad or Calphalon, you are not only paying for your pan, you are also paying for every pot and pan they give to television chef's, free fer nuthin, to use on their programs, so you can't win unless you buy no-name brands, which is exactly what I did. I bought Le Gourmet Chef's tri-ply stainless line, first receiving a 7 piece set as a birthday gift, then filling in whith other pieces over the years, for about 1/3 of the price of All-Clad, and, quality-wise they are every bit as good, with the same no-nonsesnse guarantee. Yes, they are made in China, but, so was Kwai Chang Caine!

They are saute pans -- with the straight sides.

That particular one is $340 at Cookware and More.

$200 in SS. And $140 for the more reasonable 4 quart model.

And even cheaper when they have a sale.

Yep, I mistakenly thought it was a fry pan, but that's the one - ss with a copper core and cover. Jeez, I thought $299 was outrageous. Had no idea it retails for $500!!!

$299 is outrageous and $500 is nuts, IMO.

But the cheaper All Clad is cookware you'll pass on to your grandchildren.

Maybe there should be a Cookware Police Force out there, because manufacturers just seem to call things whatever they like. What is being called a sauté pan on one site looks exactly like the chicken fryers I’ve always used.

Then, what is called a fry pan by some looks exactly like what others call a sauté pan.

Well, as long as it works well, I don’t care what they call it.
