All-Clad will be hosting James Beard award-winner Chef Hugh Acheson at the Groupe SEB booth at the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago.
Acheson, also an All-Clad Chef Ambassador, will be cooking with the brand’s newest collections, d3 Armor and HA1 Hard Anodized. He will be at the All-Clad/Groupe SEB booth, S4406 & S4410, on March 6.
All-Clad’s newest collection, d3 Armor, was created with All-Clad’s patented d3 technology. The new technology was developed by Bill Groll, All-Clad’s vp/product development, and features a textured surface engineered with a three layer, selectively bonded matrix – offering better release than uncoated pans and more durability than traditional nonstick pans, the company said. The pan’s armored geometric interior is dishwasher safe as well as oven and broiler safe to 600 degrees F, according to All-Clad. The line can be used on all cooktops, including induction. The collection will be open to all retailers in September 2016. The line will include an 8” fry pan, 10” fry pan, 12” fry pan, 3-quart sauté pan with lid and a 12” oval fish pan. Suggested retail prices ranges from $110 to $250.
All-Clad’s d7 line is available in either a seven-piece collection or open stock. According to the company, d7 products are made with a patented seven-layer bonded construction – three aluminum layers and four stainless steel layers – that is designed to provide doubly uniform heat conduction with 25% less weight than cast iron. The three aluminum layers are intended to ensure top efficiency for conducting and sustaining heat, while the four stainless steel layers are designed to retain the heat. The domed stainless steel lids were created to help circulate heat and moisture, to help with tenderness. The company also added design elements to provide convenience to the consumer, like ergonomically-designed stainless-steel handles that provide a secure, comfortable grip, as well as flared edges to help provide drip-free pouring.
In addition to the collection, All-Clad has a 3.5-quart round Dutch oven/cocotte available in the d7 line. Made in the U.S. with a suggested retail price of $199.99, the oven doubles as serveware, transitioning seamlessly from the stove to the table, according to All-Clad.
