All Clad Master Chef 2

The All Clad Master Chef 2, or All Clad MC2 line, is a commercial, light weight, professional line of cookware. Redesigned and re-engineered, the MC2 presents a classic aesthetic look and incredible performance. Featuring a 3-ply construction and a beautiful brushed exterior, the Master Chef 2 line of cookware will suit both professional and gourmet kitchens.

All-Clad Master Chef 2 features a patented three-ply bond that utilizes a thick aluminum center core and an aluminum alloy on the exterior to make this cookware perform exceptionally well with heat.

The use of aluminum also makes this cookware much lighter. The interior is made from high quality 18/10 stainless steel to offer the best possible cooking surface. It withstands the use of many types of utensils without any worry of damage.

Benefits of Master Chef

Made in the United States, All-Clad Master Chef 2 offers the clean taste of stainless steel on the interior of this cookware. Easy to cook with, stainless steel offers the ideal cooking surface. It does not react with food or muddy your flavors. It is easy to clean, and cook with. Stainless steel handles are riveted securely to the pans.

The aluminum core distributes the heat quickly and evenly. Like all of All-Clad's products, the core is not restricted to the bottom of the cookware, but extends up the sides as well to provide the best heat conductivity as possible. The brushed aluminum alloy exterior provides a contemporary, classic look to any kitchen.

Cooking with MC2 Stainless Cookware

For the best results, this cookware should be allowed to warm up briefly before your oil is added. Wait another few minutes to add your food to the pan to prevent sticking. To keep your cookware in the best condition, don't add salt until liquids are boiling to help the salt to dissolve quickly before it can pit the stainless steel interior.

To avoid discoloration, don't cook over high heat. Keep your stove turned to low or medium to preserve the beauty of your cookware. The cladded metal will be more than sufficient to cook your food well at these lower temperatures.

Cleaning Tips

All-Clad Master Chef 2 offers the same lifetime warranty that All-Clad offers on all of its cookware. The Master Chef 2 collection must be hand washed. Placing them in the dishwasher will invalidate the warranty. A cleanser called The Bar Keeper's Friend is an excellent choice for cleaning your Master Chef 2 cookware. It is safe for the brushed aluminum exterior as well as the stainless steel interior.


The All-Clad Master Chef 2 collection comes in many designs, including frying pans, non stick, sauce pans, sauciers and casseroles. Pasta pans, sauté pans, stockpots, braisers and stir fry pans are also available. If you need large sizes, this is the collection for you. Stockpots are available in sizes up to 20 quarts… large enough to make soup of the day or enough corn or chili for a party.

You'll be amazed at how well All-Clad's MC2 cookware will braise tender meats, make tasty sauces, and fry everything from chicken to eggs to perfection. Comfort foods never tasted better than when prepared in an MC2 braiser pan or cassoulet. If you need smaller cookware to fit your needs, many pans come in 1 or 2 quart sizes as well.

Made with All-Clad's dedication to quality, the Master Chef 2 collection is engineered to perform well in the kitchen while remaining lightweight and easy to care for. Safe for all stove top surfaces, MC2 pans can also go in the oven. It is easy to brown a roast on the stove top, then pop the entire pan in the oven to finish the cooking at a slow roast for tender meat and vegetables later.

You will enjoy the MC2 cookware in your kitchen, and while the initial investment may make your heart skip a beat, once you work with it, you will know it was worth every penny and then some. All-Clad offers some of the best cookware in the world, and your kitchen deserves it.
