All-Clad’s 2-Piece Kitchen Helper Set Is the Cookware You’ll Use Every Single Day — and It’s on Sale for $150
We here at The Kitchn are loud and proud members of the All-Clad fan club. We’re not alone: The cookware brand has been a go-to among industry professionals and home chefs alike for decades, thanks to their high-performing and long-lasting pieces. (Emphasis on that last part — former editor Meghan wrote her review of their products after 15 years of testing, and she has no doubt that they’ll continue to deliver top-tier results for a lifetime.)
Considering that, the fact that they cost a pretty penny make sense. Even so, you’ll save money in the long run, since you’ll have no need to replace them further down the line. Still, we’re proponents of not spending more than you have to, and right now, you can get two All-Clad everyday essentials for nearly the price of one. You read that right: The Kitchen Helper Set, which includes a fry pan and saucepan, is almost half off.
What Is the Two-Piece Kitchen Helper Set?
Trust me, you’ll find yourself reaching for both pieces in this set every day of the week. As mentioned, you’ll get an eight-inch fry pan and a single-quart saucepan, both of which have two layers of high-quality stainless steel and a heat-conductive aluminum core. The fry pan offers a flat base with flared sides — making tossing and flipping a breeze — while the saucepan’s higher sizes retain heat and prevent evaporation. It goes without saying that they’re compatible with all stovetops, and they can even go in the oven as long as it’s at or below 600°F.
Both items have earned our stamp of approval on our corresponding Best Lists. Meghan even deemed the two-quart version of the saucepan the All-Clad pan to get, because it’s perfect for more elaborate tasks like sauce and candy making as well as the simpler ones. “A whole decade of use has passed and this 2-quart pot is still looking new and seeing daily use,” she wrote. “It makes way more morning oatmeal and Annie’s Mac and Cheese now than candy, but that’s part of what makes me love it even more.”
“And it cleans up so easily,” she added. “I’ve been able to scour off everything from burnt caramel to day-old mac and cheese with ease. Those are two things I can’t say for the less expensive pots I’ve owned.”
What All-Clad Reviewers are Saying
Average Rating: 4.2/5
“Very well made and convenient size if you just want to cook one small portion or make sauce or oatmeal.” — Eliza1
“I have a set of All Clad and these are the finishing pieces! I love the high quality and design — perfect for one or two serving sizes.” — LJ Welter
“There are very useful and accompany a larger set well. They would also make a great gift for the All Clad enthusiast who already has a ‘complete’ set. The little one quart is surprisingly handy for a lot of things.” — Scott V
If you find yourself most often cooking for one or two, you won’t want to miss out on this stellar deal. Without a doubt, both pans will become the most-used items in your kitchen, but their appearance and performance won’t show it, even years later. Make sure to take advantage of the sale price while you still can!
