Just got an All-Clad LTD2 saute pan and I was wandering if it is save to put it in the oven. Thanks

Does your pan have a non-stick coating? – Chris Steinbach Dec 5 '12 at 9:58
nope, looks like stainless on the inside – Zdravko Danev Dec 5 '12 at 12:31

Update: sorry, this line is layered steel and anodized aluminum construction.

From the Amazon product description (almost certainly direct from the manufacturer), emphasis added:

LTD2 is safe on all stovetops - except induction and backed by a lifetime warranty. The “workhorse” of all cookware shapes, All-Clad fry pans' versatile shape and size make them a frequent choice for scrambling eggs and bacon on Sunday morning, or preparing a quick chicken sauté dinner on a weeknight. Our conventional fry pans go in the oven and under the broiler.

That is one of the primary benefits of the good All-Clad stuff, or similar cookware from other brands.

The only pots you don't want to put in the oven are ones with phenolic (sp?) or other plasticized handles or knobs--although some of these are rated to 400F degrees. I also would not put non-stick pots in an oven above about 450F, or under the broiler.

All steel and aluminum pots are great, partially because they are oven and broiler safe.

Before I switched to all-steel exterior all-clad, I used anodized aluminum (the old, original Calphalon). It also went into the oven and under the broiler without issue. My current all-steel all clad has been going in the oven and under the broiler for many year without an issue.
