They are both SS.
Actually I don’t know for a fact. I just remember handling a D5 at a store and distinctly remember it to be heavier than expected. And in a separate occasion holding a ‘regular’ All Clad pan and it seems to feel fine. But hasn’t done side by side.
Which I think is fine for me as I plan to use both the CI and the SS side by side. So for sticky stuff like meat and eggs, I’d just use the CI and SS for the others.
I do remember that browning onions and garlics, etc makes the SS surface somewhat hard to clean (relative to my CI). Does the Silvinox actually make the surface less sticky as Demeyere claims to be?
We don’t have a dishwasher so everything is handwashed. Good point about MC2/LTD. Set the exterior aside, how’s MC2’s performance versus regular Allclad triply?
