I love a good bargain as much as the next person, but when it comes to the items that get used every day, investing in higher-end options will definitely pay off in the long run. When it comes to my kitchen, there are a few daily essentials I consider splurge-worthy: my coffee machine, my blender, and above all, my pans. I’ll admit that, in the past, I’ve bought pans for their cheap price tags, but those days are firmly behind me — purchasing replacements year after year became a total pain. I’d rather shell out a bit more on the front end and own something that’ll last longer and deliver excellent results every time.

All-Clad’s cookware certainly fits that bill. Decades ago, the brand set the standard for cookware, becoming the first to layer stainless steel and aluminum for superior heat conduction and durability. These days, not much has changed; All-Clad is still the one to beat. (Our editors can attest to that.) If you’re ready to upgrade your everyday pan, this is the best time to do it, because the brand’s highly-rated D3 skillet is almost half off for a limited time.

What is the D3 Stainless 3-ply Bonded Cookware 10-inch Skillet with Lid?

Before I say anything else: One of our former editors has sworn by All-Clad cookware for 15 years, and even after all that time, she’s still “100% confident” that her pieces will last her a lifetime. If that doesn’t confirm that it’s money well spent, I’m not sure what will, especially when you factor in that this stainless steel skillet is so versatile. It offers the brand’s trademark tri-ply construction, as well as a flat base and flared sides, which make flipping a breeze. Shoppers say that the long handle is perfectly angled for avoiding the burner. Whether you’re cooking steaks or eggs, the experience (and even more importantly, the results) will be top-tier. The skillet works with all stovetops and can even be popped into the oven.

Though she tested out the sauté pan rather than the skillet, contributor Stella couldn’t say enough positive things about the D3 line, which she found exceptionally easy to clean. “After a literal decade of use, there are no stains inside or on the underside of my pan,” she said, adding that “there’s no difference in quality from its first to its 3,650th day of use.”

What All-Clad Shoppers are Saying

Average Rating: 4.5/5

“Fine craftsmanship, excellent construction, swift border perfect for sliding cooked food off to plate. Long handle and angle perfectly set for avoiding heat from adjoining burners. Perfect weight to size ratio. Perfect for steaks, fish fillets and mostly for spanish style omelets. Made some cod fillets and came like a magazine picture; nicely cooked WITHOUT STICKING. The best frying pan there is.” — Zoraya

“This is my new favorite pan. I always used my 12″ cast iron pan, but now this is my go-to pan. I have used it to make burgers, fried eggs, and scrambled eggs so far. Cleanup is easy. I love it!” — KH53

“We were nervous to replace our nonstick pan with stainless, but we’re really loving it. The pan is easy to grip/maneuver (LOVE the length of the handle), it heats quickly and evenly, and with the use of steam (hot water in the pan then put the lid on for 5-10 minutes), we can easily clean even sticky scrambled eggs. I can’t wait to replace all our other pans when they wear out with All-Clad.” — Nikki S.

Any time an All-Clad pan is going for $100 or less, it’s a good idea to snag it as quickly as possible. It’s a major bonus that it’s the skillet, in particular, that’s almost half off right now — it’s ideal for all kinds of daily meals and tasks, and despite frequent use, it’ll look just as new as the day you bought it years down the road. Sounds like a steal, if you ask me!
