The Benefits of Stainless Steel Clad Cookware

The Benefits of Stainless Steel Clad Cookware

Stainless steel clad is synonymous with professional quality.

It has all of the beneficial qualities of stainless steel with a vastly superior ability to spread heat evenly, rapidly and efficiently, yielding wares that are better at retaining heat as well as less likely to have hot spots. Stainless clad is also significantly stronger and more durable than standard stainless.  

Stainless steel is a culinary standard. It is coveted for its strength, durability and resistance to corrosion, making it virtually indestructible. It is also non-reactive making it a safe option for cooking virtually anything. Easy to clean, typically dishwasher safe and attractive with its polished shine, it’s easy to see why stainless steel is so widely used.

So what’s the difference between stainless steel and stainless steel clad? 

Stainless steel cookware is typically made of a single layer of stainless steel. Depending on the make of your cookware, that stainless can be of varying grades of quality, thickness and composition. 

Stainless steel clad on the other hand is made by layering stainless steel with other metals, often aluminum, in order to improve its performance and heat distribution. As stainless steel is not a very good conductor of heat on its own, layering the materials dramatically improves the wares ability to conduct, retain and distribute heat. This yields a pan that’s significantly more efficient and yields a better result for anything you might be cooking. 

At Lacor, our stainless clad is made of three layers. A center layer of aluminum is sandwiched between two layers of top quality, 18/10 stainless steel. Importantly, our three layer clad makes up the entire body of the wares, not just the base. This means that you get all of the benefits throughout the entire construction of the pan. This top-quality construction yields a product that is super strong, durable and meant to last a lifetime with the best heat retention, and distribution, ensuring a perfect finish meal after meal. 

Our stainless clad pieces are professional quality that’s been selected as the line of choice by some of the top chefs in the world. These top-quality wares are designed and artisan made at our family owned factory in the Basque Country of Spain.
