Wok cooking has been around for centuries, first over open coals, which made round bottom pans so practical. On today's cooktops, the All-Clad Copper Core 14 Inch Open Stir Fry Pan still meets traditional tastes while providing a secure base on flat surfaces. Designed to work with any burner style, exterior construction is magnetic stainless with beautiful copper banding exposed to showcase its premium signature styling. As the process moves quickly along for Asian dishes, the Copper Core stir fry pan can take high heat to toss meats and crisp up veggies with room at the sides to scoop upward while whisking a center reduction. Construction is also conducive to fast cooking with a patented five-ply layering that begins with a copper center surrounded by aluminum that covers the base and sides. With faster responsiveness and wider heat distribution, ingredients in varying textures and sizes all come together for successful completion. All-Clad's Copper Core 14 Inch Stir Fry Pan is more than a specialty piece. With a stick-resistant stainless interior, it requires less oil for a variety of other cuisine favorites, and it also responds well to low or medium temperatures. A helper handle adds balance to the longer handle when tossing foods or transferring a full pan to counter space.
