Time to blow a lot of money on expensive and slightly marred cookware (All-Clad sale)!!

Enter code ALLCLADVIP when prompted.

Not "cheap," but considerably cheaper than usual and some items are well under Amazon's best-ever prices on these products.

Caveats:

It's their annual "factory seconds" sale. Items have minor cosmetic scratches or dents, and may lack stamps/engraving, but are supposed to be free of defects that would affect cooking with them.

Free shipping. As-is. No returns.

My mom bought a bunch of high end cookware about 35 years ago, and I have most of it now. All is going strong. Buying cheaply constructed is very false economy.

She still uses her Kitchen-Aid mixer from 1959!

I bought a set of All-Clad about 10 years ago. Besides scuffs from daily use the pieces are exactly as they were on the first day. Highly recommend.

All-Clad is great, but Tramontina is nearly as great and much cheaper.

Oh, she's not dead, just cut back on her cookware. I got her Le Creuset dutch oven because its too heavy for her.

Well unfortunately I just read an Amazon review on the Tramontina set above...it said the handles get hot on the most recent version of it. WTH??? Man. What a letdown.

Trying hard to resist the measuring cups and spoons. So much of what's available today is plastic or too-thin SS. Wish the SS ECKO line was as good as it was in the '60s ...

I've posted here about Tramontina Tri-Ply cookware many times over the years. I purchased a set for my (ex-)wife some years ago - top notch stuff.

I have four pieces of All- Clad and I am not a fan. Both my 10 and 12" fring pans have @#$%& in the middle after only a few eyes and after I have babied them. I never put water on them until they were cool and I never cooked extremely hot.

I got a D5 brushed 12” fry pan from homeandcooksales. It came with a severe convex dish:



That’s more than a cosmetic issue. I was able to get All-Clad to replace it, despite the as-is/no exchanges policy, but it was a headache. First, their online “contact us” web page was broken for at least a week; second, I’d call their 1-800 number and be put on hold for half an hour before having to hang up and get some work done. That happened twice. Eventually, their customer service web page was fixed, and they suggested repeatedly that I had warped the pan by overheating it and then dunking it in cold water. Still, they did allow me to ship it back at my own expense for an evaluation, and six weeks later, I received a replacement. It’s better than the first, but it’s still dished. I have Calphalon pans, and none of them have this problem.

I don’t know if the problem is that I bought a factory second, or whether it’s an actual problem with the D5 line. (It’s certainly a lot less heavy than a Calphalon pan, much thinner body, so I’d expect more problems with warping and dishing.) Either way, I wouldn’t buy another pan from homeandcooksales.com.

Never had an issue with all my Tramontina pan handles. There are many variations (i.e. even cheaper) of the Tramontina pans, so you need to get the right ones.

They don't get hot like my cast iron (of which I am also a big fan).

Absolutely correct. Tramontina offers a number of lines of non-Tri-Ply stainless steel cookware (including at Costco) - you don't want these. The Tri-Ply line of SS cookware is the Tramontina product line that receives all the rave reviews.

Indeed. I was going to suggest you consider the 12-piece set at $225, but I see it now sells for $326, $100 more than what I paid for ours. Check back from time to time - my experience is that prices for these sets fluctuate widely.
