I just recently picked up an 8" Cuisinart model 722-20 stainless steel skillet for $2 at a thrift store.

It works great!

Space summed it up quite well. I give. Stainless isn't for me. From the comments in other threads stainless is quite popular so I'm sure someone will pick it up. I tried to price it attractively. :-)

My mother is going to loan me a cast iron skillet that she is not using to see if I like that.

Make sure it's properly seasoned before you make a judgement on it...

My mother-in-law (not my mother who is giving me the skillet to try) is a huge cast iron fan. So I'm hoping it goes well.

Well good luck Dave, though at the price you're asking I think you're awfully optimistic. My feeling is that a standard craigslist price for an item that is perfect is about 50% of retail. Adjust downwards for condition. For example, I just bought a bike that retailed a few years ago for about $1,000 and is just a little scraped up and weathered but otherwise perfect for $145. You're asking 67% of new price for something that looks beat to he11 and will require some serious work to polish up. I'd suggest somewhere south of $50 as a start.

Davester,

Agreed. At $50 or less, I can definitely see someone buying the pan and putting a bunch of elbow grease in to cleaning it. Same goes for buying the pan and then returning it to All-Clad for replacement, assuming they will cover that under warranty. At $80 or even $70 or so, I'd be inclined to pass on it.

The isn't so much for elbow grease cleanup. It's in the event I had to return the pan to All-Clad for replacement in the event I couldn't get the job done myself. The inconvenience and agita of dealing with the warranty replacement and possible cost of shipping to return it to All-Clad offsets any savings I'd get buy purchasing it as a used pan.

But, Dave did say OBO - So, I'm betting he'd take any reasonable offer. smiling smiley

Hey Dave, I didn't post this before because it seemed you were getting good tips, but here I go:
While the skillet is still hot from regular use, put a stainless steel scrubber and a wet kitchen cloth above it, and go to town.
The steam and abrasion will get rid of everything.

- - -> Please be warned: It will get to hot for the bare hand.

I used to push the combo with a spatula, and it worked good enough.
Now I use a silicon glove and it's quick and effective... I'd think an oven mitten or similar could be used with the same results.

Your skillet seems very nice, it'd be a shame to downgrade because of this small, fixable detail.

At any rate, good luck.

You may be correct about the pricing. I plan to list the skillet on eBay this weekend. I'll lower the price but as Robert noted I said OBO in my listing here.

This skillet is the d5 version from All-Clad which has five layers where the normal version only has three. I would hope an interested buyer would see that as an advantage. We will see.

rich in distress, I really appreciate the continued advice. I've found that I spend more time cleaning this skillet than I do cooking or eating combined so it's time for it to go. Hopefully someone with more skills in the kitchen than I have will buy it and be happy. I think if a person didn't care what the pan looked like then it would be perfect for them. It heats quickly and the food cooks very evenly on it. I was impressed with that part of the pan. I didn't have much trouble with food sticking to it. Eggs required a little more oil but overall it wasn't a problem. Cleanup is my only complaint.

You need a glass bead sandblaster. Shine it right up!

are you only selling it because it looks ugly? fwiw, restaurant skillets are the ugliest you will ever see, yet people gladly spend $$$$ for entrees cooked in those skillets. . .

I really now what you are talking about; sometimes you just have to let things go because, as good as they may be, they just don't work for you.

Yet, since cleanup is your only complaint...

nah... I won't urge you to try it.



I'll just tell you that I just made a mess in a perfectly clean stainless steel skillet.
Three deboned breasts, oil, s+p, onion and garlic.
Twenty seconds later it was as clean as before I started.

Good luck!

why do people keep insisting on elbow grease, scrubbing pads and steam, etc, etc, etc.

OVEN CLEANER!!!!!!!!!! If it will strip a century of crud off of an abused cast iron skillet from a garage sale, with several applications, then why not give it a try on stainless?

Sweet Jeebus people!
