its a great deal, especially when you buy lots of all clad. The only negative is in the inaccurate description. The only way I learned it was not induction compatible was by reading other reviews. I have an induction cooktop and decided it was worth purchasing at the great sale price anyway. On the box after receiving the roasting pan was the only place it said not induction compatible. ALSO!! It is not flat top compatible either. Both not induction or flat top compatible should be mentioned.
