All Clad makes excellent stainless cookware. Their pans are very responsive, distribute heat evenly on their cooking surfaces and the handles remain cool to the touch so no burning yourself. I have several of their pieces as well as some Calphalon. I like the Calphalon pots I have also, however I don't think they make that particular line anymore so I can't really recommend it. I don't particularly like some of the new stuff they came out with; it seems too light weight to be able to regulate temperatures and the dark interior color can be a hindrance and a distraction when making certain foods. Le Creuset also came out with a line of stainless pans which I would be interested in trying since their enameled cast iron pans are quite nice. Good cookware can be a large investment but, if you take care of it, can last a lifetime. In fact, I inherited some pans from my grandfather through my mother which are still going strong after almost 70 years of use.
