I learned two things from watching Season 2 of The Bear. The first is that I would still follow Carmy, played by actor Jeremy Allen White, off a cliff for both his cooking and his veiny, tattoo-laden forearms. Like the rest of the internet, I am horny for Carmy—maybe even hornier than I was in Season 1, if that's even possible. The second (arguably more important) finding from my thirsty, late-night viewing sessions is that if my cookware isn't All-Clad, I don't want it. Sorry! But this is a Michelin-star home kitchen I am running!
If you watched Season 2 of The Bear, then you know the Original Beef of Chicagoland crew has been using janky, burnt-to-the-crisp pots and pans (thanks, Mikey)—but they really want to upgrade to All-Clad, which Chef Sydney explains to newly-appointed sous chef Tina is because of the 3-ply layering in the stainless steel that makes for super even, pro-grade cooking. Tina eventually gets her All-Clad, and it's a beautiful moment for the whole kitchen staff (but especially Tina, who beams at her shiny, new powerhouse of a pan).
Lucky for me and all my other fellow The Bear fans, All-Clad cookware is on super sale for Prime Day, and when I say "super sale," I mean super sale; the discounts are hot enough to make you say, "yes, chef." Select bundles are currently a whopping 50 percent off, which rarely ever happens. Needless to say, All-Clad's discounted cookware is flying off virtual shelves faster than The Beef's Italian beef sandwiches—you gotta get it while you still can.
While there are a handful of individual pots and pans on sale, it's really the cookware sets that are worth your time and attention. Specifically, the All-Clad D3 Stainless Steel 10-Piece Cookware Set (originally $1,160, now $595) that's been slashed nearly 50 percent off and will instantly elevate your home-chef game the minute it arrives at your door.
Originally $1,160, now $595
Includes 8 and 10-inch fry pans, 2 and 3-quart sauce pans with lids, 3-quart sauté pan with lid, and 8-quart stockpot with lid.
Each piece in the bundle is made in the U.S. from the brand's iconic triple-ply construction that features an aluminum core wrapped in two layers of durable, high-quality stainless steel for premium heat distribution and consistency. Every piece comes with bonded riveted handles for a safer grip, plus matching lids. And they're versatile; All-Clad D3 Stainless Steel cookware is compatible with every cooktop, including induction stovetops, and is oven- and broiler-safe up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit. Best of all, it's easy to clean up—a quick rinse with some soap and water gets stuck-on bits of food, oil, and gunk out of the pans in seconds. (It's technically all dishwasher safe, but any chef will recommend hand-washing your pieces to keep 'em looking like new.)
For the serious Carmy wannabes, the All-Clad Copper Core 5-Ply Stainless Steel 10-Piece Set (originally $1,930, now $1,200) is currently 30 percent off. It's got all the same pieces as the D3 Set, only it swaps out the aluminum core for a stronger, warp-proof copper core and adds two extra layers of stainless steel for extra durability and responsiveness. Whatever you throw at these things—Italian beef, spaghetti pomodoro, even "chaos menu" items—they'll take it like a champ, and they'll look good doing it—the copper core looks chic; you can see it in each of the pans, a band of orangey copper in the bottom that stands out on your countertops when you're not cooking.
Originally $1,930, now $1,200
Includes 8 and 10-inch fry pans, 2 and 3-quart sauce pans with lids, 3-quart saute pan with lid, and 8-quart stockpot with lid.
While my fantasy of running away with Carmy to start our own upscale Italian beef shop is just that—fantasy—the All-Clad sale is very, very real. Get your own chef-quality cookware before Prime Day ends July 12, or before it all sells out.
