An American Heritage
Born in the U.S. steel age in 1967, Clad Metals began as a small metallurgical company that specialized in formulating bonded metals for a variety of industries. Company founder, John Ulam, a brilliant metallurgist, realized the combination of different metals created composites that yielded superior results. He was awarded more than 50 U.S. patents for bonded metals and secured a contract with the U.S. Mint to make dimes, quarters and half dollars. He was later instrumental in the nation's conversion from solid silver coins to bonded layered metals used in coins today.
After years of perfecting the bonding process, Ulam established All-Clad Metalcrafters in 1971, and began producing professional quality bonded cookware for working chefs and avid home cooks. The brand flourished as early adopters realized the cookware’s extraordinary properties and exemplary cooking performance.
Today, All-Clad cookware is still handcrafted in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, with American-made steel the same way it was four decades ago. It is still widely sought after by the world’s top chefs and passionate home cooks.
The finest materials.
Raw materials are critical to performance. All-Clad metallurgists specify the metal formulations in every detail, from chemical composition to microstructure.
Since quality always takes precedence over convenience, the metals are formulated for optimal cooking performance, not for ease of manufacturing.
All-Clad bonded cookware is manufactured to the most stringent environmental standards. Virtually every ounce of unused material is recovered and recycled, including the metal dust generated during the sanding process.
The highest quality standards.
At each stage of the manufacturing process, every piece of All-Clad bonded cookware is hand-inspected to ensure that it maintains All-Clad’s rigorous quality standards. This dedication to quality ensures that every piece of bonded cookware that leaves the Southwestern Pennsylvania rolling mill is worthy of the reputation that precedes it. No detail is overlooked in handcrafting All-Clad cookware, and this is what makes it a true original. The highest standards of quality and performance are the principles that have guided All-Clad from its inception. This philosophy continues to drive the engineers and artisans who create the cookware that is widely acknowledged as the world’s best.
