Vollrath's tribute to those chefs who want the best of both worlds - stainless steel for neutral flavors and aluminum for fast, even heating. This skillet is ideal for gas, electric, and induction cooking. The ultra durable 8 gauge 3-Ply construction maintains its shape under constant commercial use. The 18-8 stainless steel interior does not affect colors and flavor of food. A 3004 aluminum core provides even heat on bottom and side walls of pan. An 18-0 stainless steel exterior is induction ready. Exclusive GatorGrip insulated handle is rated at 450°F for stovetop or oven use.
