My husband loves waffles and was impressed with the hotel breakfast bars that allow you to make your own waffles. Not alot of restaurants serve waffles anymore, so when I saw this one on sale, I had to get it for him. It's so easy to use, the instruction manual should be entitled "Waffles for Dummies". It's non-stick coating is super easy to clean and I love the spill tray underneath. It turns out (literally) perfect waffles everytime. The adjustable setting allows each one to have made-to-order crispness. It really couldn't be more simple to operate and anyone could pretty much figure out how to operate it without the manual. Just plug in, adjust the temp to your liking, flip the switch, you are alerted when it's ready, fill, then close the lid and rotate handle. Wait for the beep and "Voila!", perfect restaurant quality waffles, every time!

Worth it's copper weight...in gold!

After my 20 yr-old wedding gift cookware set bit the dust, I convinced my husband that All-Clad Copper Core would be a good investment...and prayed that I was right. The 8 inch frypan was my first experience with All-Clad and my prayers were answered! This pan is by far the best frypan I have ever used. It doesn't claim to be non-stick, but with the right amount of oil (or butter) it comes pretty close. We use it mainly for frying scrambled eggs, potentially a disaster. After using lesser quality stainless cookware, it required some adjustment. The copper core allows cooking at lower heat and possibly shorter periods of time. I even turn the heat off when I flip the egg and it continues to cook perfectly while the stovetop cools down. I've used it to saute and brown onions which will stick if the heat is too high. Clean up, however, is a breeze. (All-Clad doesn't recommend the dishwasher for Copper Core, but I find it extremely easy to hand wash. It's almost fun, since the pan comes out sparkling clean and gleaming). Just follow the manufacturers instructions for use and care and you can't go wrong!

Cookware at it's Best

After the demise of my 20 yr-old wedding gift cookware set, I decided to upgrade to All-Clad Copper Core. This cookware is used by professional chefs and culinary institutes worldwide, and now, I know why! The copper core allows the pan to respond quickly even to electric coil burners that are on their last leg. Water seems to boil faster and cooking is done more evenly. One of my favorite things to prepare in this pan (3 quart) is rice. It's perfect in 20 minutes and clean up is a breeze. With a mild dish soap and little bit of Bar Keepers Friend, it maintains it's mirror-like finish. Even at the hefty price tag, I would recommend it to everyone. Buy a piece at a time or save up and splurge on an entire set! You won't be disappointed. I would suggest investing in a pot rack to store it on, it deserves to be shown off!
