A WINNER all around!

Just bought another one for a friend. I own 2 of these myself, one for each of my homes. The quality is as good as All Clad but at a fraction of the price. I see reviews stating this is expensive, but obviously they are used to purchasing cookware in the dollar store. As far as a lid, yes you can purchase one directly from Tramontina. I actually did write to them to purchase this exact pan from them directly and their retail price with a 25% discount is $94.00 FOR THIS EXACT PAN. A steal at this price and Walmart is the only store that carries it.

At last a frying pan that works

I purchased the 12 inch and the 10 inch fersions of this pan because it was recommended on a cooking site. It is tri-ply meaning that there is a layer of aluminum sandwiched between the inner and outer stainless steel surfaces all the way up to the rim. When I got them I washed them by hand and immediatly set about seasoning them like a cast irom skillet. I used a grapeseed oil with a high smoking point and left it on a burner just below the smoking point until a layer of fat was visible whien I dumped out the oil. I wiped it with paper towels and then put it in a low oven for an added hour. The result is a pan that is almost as nonstick as teflon and we can use ordinary metal spatulas turners on. It works so well. It is heavy but not a much as cast iron. Altogether we are delighted with the pans we got--and they didn't cost an arm and a leg.

Great skillet

This is a the best skillet. You have to put a film of oil (not a lot) and heat it up before putting in food, the oil should shimmer. If the skillet isn't hot enough the food will stick but you don't want it smoking hot, medium to medium high depending on your stove. No lid but I use a Mainstays universal lid I purchased at Walmart, it doesn't really fit but it works (the skillet has rounded edges for pouring). The handle is long but it fits in oven (not the lid) to 400 degrees. Its really a solid skillet, I bought it because I wanted a large skillet that won't warp. When you realize this is a triply clad skillet, the weight and size, you can't believe they can make it and sell it at such a low price, its a great value.

needs a helper handle and a lid.

pros: great skillet, love the shape, nice size. nothing sticks if you heat it empty and make sure the oil is hot before adding your food. Made chicken parm the other day from stovetop to oven and just needed to soak the pan in water for a few mins. to get out some burnt on cheese.. Planning on getting the rest of the pieces to replace the rest of my pans. cons: really could use a helper handle for pouring out sauces and definitely should have a lid that local Walmart has a universal lid but not by Tramontina and it is to small. That is why i gave it a 4 instead of a 5. I wanted the skillet for the slanted sides rather than the straight saute pan side but really want a lid

This full tri-ply cookware -- just like ALL-CLAD

Cook's Illustrated (America's Test Kitchen) has found Walmart's Tramontina Gourmet line of cookware equivlent to ALL-CLAD at one third the cost. Cook's illustrated (CI) cut-through the Tramantina Gourmet cookware and found that it is full tri-ply. The tri-ply sandwich of 18/10 stainless - Aluminium - 18/10 stainless runs throughout the cookware from the bottom to the walls. CI found its heat distribution and cooking characteristics the same as comparable ALL-CLAD pieces.

Tramontina TriPly Cookware - 12 inch Saute Pan

A fantastic value. Highly recommended by the Cook's Illustrated magazine / America's Test Kitchen - they say it is comparable to All-clad and others - and it absolutely is, at a fraction of the price! I bought and love the 8-pc. set, and have been buying the additional pieces as they come available on line at Do not hesitate in the least to buy this cookware!

Excellent product.

Seems, after a few weeks, to be a very good buy. I work on the cooking surface and the bottom of the pan with Barkeeper's Friend after each use and it seems to be getting better as I go. However, from the beginning, it worked quite well for even heating and sticking at a minimum. The sticking was my main question. Working at medium heat seems to be no more clean up effort than a old Teflon skillet and not much more than a new non-stick. My son convinced me stainless is the way to go as a long term cooking solution and get away from replacing every few years. I had handled the pan prior to purchasing and was well aware of the handle. It is a bit lacking in the ergonomic factor for a frying pan this large and this heavy. The pan and handle are both designed for easy cleaning and that cancels out the handle problem for me. In fact, I am now thinking about getting more pieces of this styled cookware.

Close to All-Clad and a great bargain from China

I have this pan as well as a similar 12-inch All-Clad. I paid 2 1/2 times more for the A-C, but the A-C did come with a lid... The A-C is lighter, which along with the handle shape, makes it easier to use and less apt to tip unexpectedly when carrying or pouring from it. The Tramontina actually has a more highly polished interior surface than the A-C, but mine has a couple of small pits (I bought it via site-to-store and should have checked it out better). Be sure to clean well (Bar Keepers Friend) before using as there seemed to be polishing compound residue left on the pan (and especially on the inside of lids of other Tramontina pans I have purchased). But enough of the nit-picking, for the price you can't beat this product, if only it was made in the US like A-C...

This pan works as well as it's $$$ competition

In the short time I've had this pan, I've not only sautéed with it, but used it to oven roast chicken as well. (Preheat pan in 450⁰ F oven, place seasoned and lightly olive oiled bird breast side up with trussed legs [tied together w/kitchen twine] for 35 to 50 minutes depending on size, turn oven off and let bird remain in the oven for an equal amount of time.) I have their 12" 5qt. covered Jumbo Cooker and several of Tramontina's non-stick pans and cannot rate them highly enough. When a glass cover cracked in hot dishwater for the 12" deep fry pan I have, the woman in their customer service replaced the entire pan as I mentioned that I liked it, but the coating was wearing off. She said they'd had an early early problem and replaced everything for no charge.

Why pay more?

I was about to make an investment in a set of All Clad cookware when I ran across the Cook's Illustrated review and rating of cookware sets. I was astonished to see that the Tramontina rated a close second to All Clad but at a fraction of the price! I've owned the set for just over a month now and couldn't be happier with my purchase. In my kitchen, the 12" saute pan is a workhorse and gets lots of use, especially on weekends. In my opinion, it seems identical to All Clad in terms of cooking characteristics - the best feature is how quickly it heats up and maintains a steady heat over a moderate flame. I have sauteed chicken, vegetables and eggs in this pan and it performed admirably. It looks great, feels great in your hand and cleans up nicely.
