All-Clad had reintroduced its original Master Chef collection, resulting in the MC2 collection. The MC2 collection features a "matte finish" exterior surface of brushed aluminum that adds an "industrial style" look to kitchens. This collection features gleaming, polished, stainless steel handles on the pan, as well as gleaming, polished, stainless steel loop handles on the stainless lids. Hand washing is recommend when cleaning your All-Clad MC2. Dishwasher use will deteriorate the exterior beauty of your pan.
