Cuisinart's new Multi-Clad Pro cookware brings you all the benefits of multi-layer construction at sensational low prices. Multi-Clad Pro pans are formed from three layers of bonded metals; pure aluminum in the center for rapid and even heat conduction, 18/10 stainless steel on the cooking surfaces and exteriors for beautiful, long-lasting, easy-care durability. This multi-layer construction ensures that heat is conducted evenly up the sides of the pans, just as it is on the bottoms. Multi-Clad Pro pans will quickly respond to changes in burner settings, cooking beautifully on the lowest or highest heats. They'll also last a lifetime with minimal care, cleaning up beautifully in the dishwasher. The newly-designed, arching handles are designed to minimize heat transfer and offer ideal balance when working with full, heavy pans. The rims of Multi-Clad Pro pans are tapered for drip-free pouring. 12" skillet has helper handle.
