All-Clad's c4 Copper cookware.

Williams-Sonoma is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the All-Clad brand by highlight its broad selection of cookware and other kitchenware products.

Founded in 1971 by John Ulan, All-Clad Metalcrafters was the first cookware company to use bonded or clad construction. This technique layers different metals such as stainless steel and aluminum into one. The result is cookware that performs better than items made with a single metal.


Today, the company’s stainless steel cookware is still made in Canonsburg, Pa., with American-made steel.

As part of the celebration, the kitchenware specialty store is sharing with consumers recipes representative of the prior five decades. They are fondue (1970s), creole blackened fish (1980s), barbecue chicken pizza (1990s), sticky buns with candied bacon (2000s) and avocado toast (2010s).

Among the featured cookware collections promoted by Williams-Sonoma is All-Clad’s C4 Copper collection, which is exclusive to the retailer. The brand’s first-ever copper cookware offers the ultimate in heat responsiveness and conductivity with its patented four-layer construction. The collection is made in the United States.

In addition to cookware, the retailer also promoted several other All-Clad lines that include kitchen electrics, cooks’ tools, bakeware and outdoor products.
