+1. I thought you could sear with this pan? May need to return otherwise.
You can certainly use high heat to sear meat.

All-Clad pans conduct heat extremely well and are very responsive to temp changes. I haven't used my fry pan yet but I imagine you can sear without going full blast high heat.... Preheat pan at medium, oil it when hot, increase to medium high and throw on the meat

Description says searing, info about the product says searing... I'd rather believe the official description of the product than some dude on RFD Smiling Face With Open Mouth

EDIT: Even the box says "Oven and broiler safe up to 600°F".
Thanks for the image. Although it does say to use high heat only for boiling? Anyway, decided to keep it. Can't wait to test it out.

Exactly. I've had this pan for years and have no issues. First you have the cure it (the same way you would do cast iron - medium heat, light oil, wipe, let cool on it's own). Never run the pan past medium heat (this is not a Wok). Clean with oil and salt.
You definitely do not need to do this stainless steel and you definitely can run it hot. That's what's great about All-Clad. Buy it once, abuse the hell out of it, and it's fine.

The link in OP is the D3

they make 3 different tri-ply fry pans:
1. D3 (OP deal)
2. D3 Amor (dimpled cooking surface) (not as well reviewed)
3. the MC2 pan (Master Chef Series)
Thanks OP, and thanks for the best explanation I picked one up and the box has D3 printed on it and the bottom of the pan has D3 also

how do you define better? for me, I prefer grabbing my debuyer over the allclads, except if I am cooking juicy or acidic dishes

I busted out my new D3 pan using this method for salmon by Kenji. It worked fantastic with no sticking at all. It's my first time cooking with clad stainless and I am a fan!

There are some good tips in there, thanks! I'm going to try that out next time I make salmon.

I'm impressed. I managed to warp 2 Matfer pans, but my de Buyer, which is thicker, has been pretty good so far. Perhaps you are turning the heat up too high? (or did at least once)

In the spirit of getting a good deal on a product actually superior to another, can someone recommend why its worth going with this Allclad over a cheaper $30/50 pan from Amazon or Costco etc? In my experience all stainless lasts close to a lifetime and have a hard time imagining the cooking surface/experience is very different.

It isn't about durability - all stainless steel will last you a lifetime. It is about the construction and the way it affects your cooking. All-Clad sandwiches aluminum (or copper, if you can afford it) between stainless. This results is a fully heated pan (including the sides) and, most importantly, generates even heat. That way if you load it up with chicken or whatever, you avoid some burning to a crisp while others are stone-cold. Having said that, it isn't perfect and I find the centre to be still a bit hotter. But it is better than you $10 pan.

do you douse your hot pan in cold water immediately after cooking? that is the biggest culprit which causes warping

depends on the construction of the $30 - $50 pans, if they are also cladded (like the $165 10pc cuisinart multiclad pro at costco), then the difference lies in how thick the conductive (aluminium) layer is, usually negligible, and material used. Allclad uses 18/10 stainless steel while Cuisinart uses 18/8 stainless steel. Stainless steel is not as good as aluminium in terms of conducting heat so it is mainly there to add rigidity, enable induction capability, and act as a inert cooking surface.
Your $10-20 T-fal pan you get at Walmart is all aluminium, which has amazing and quick heat distribution, even better than the best cladded cookware (source: https://www.centurylife.org/cookware-ev ... l-gas-etc/). But because the aluminium is thin and a softer metal, it is prone to warping. Also the plastic handles prevent you from finishing your food in the oven.
