From the minute I picked up one of these new All-Clad baking pans, I couldn’t wait to try it out. Tri-ply bonded stainless steel with an aluminum core gives each of the pans in this line impressive heft, and the 8-inch square one I tested produced lovely, even browning on cornbread and brownies. It also performed nicely as a roasting pan, the perfect size for cooking for one or two.
The riveted stainless handles make the pans easy to get in and out of the oven (and are particularly useful on the pie plate, where bulky oven mitts can damage a crust). Besides the 8-inch square pan ($80), the line includes a 9-inch round pan, $90; a 9×13-inch pan, $100; a 10-inch pie pan, $80; and a 12×15-inch shallow baker, $120. They are sold only at Bloomingdale’s stores and at Bloomingdales.com.
