This STAINLESS d5® Polished 6-Qt. All-Clad Essential Saucepan with Lid has rounded high walls and a large surface for easy skipping and stirring. This pan is generous in size for braising, simmering, browning and cooking all-in-one meals, including soups, stews, chili and baked dishes. The lid maintains humidity and heat to finish cooking on the stove or in the oven. The only cookware of its kind, STAINLESS d5® from All-Clad, features patented technology in five alternating layers of reactive aluminum and heat-resistant stainless steel. The STAINLESS d5 cookware heats up slowly and evenly, which gives perfectly golden proteins, from the center to the edge. The interior in 5-layer 18/10 stainless steel, with its starburst finish having benefited from high-precision polishing, prevents food from sticking and taking on a metallic taste, while its stainless steel exterior is exceptional beauty.
