    Abstract: The goal of this presentation is to share the history of All-Clad as a company, and how we grew into the premier provider of clad metal cookware in the USA.  The company was founded by a materials engineer, and materials engineering has driven the construction of our cookware from the company's very beginning to our most recent innovations.  I will share information about many types of cookware that are on the market, including single ply aluminum, cast iron, hard anodized, stainless aluminum clad, and stainless copper clad cookware, with a focus on the types of cookware that All-Clad manufactures.
