All-Clad "Outlet" in PA?

CindyJ Mar 31, 2009 07:09 AM

I remember reading about a place somewhere in the Philly 'burbs" that sells All-Clad seconds at deeply discounted prices, but I can't remember where it is. Can someone point me in the right direction, please? And, is it really a great place to shop?

    It's in Trooper. And they have good deals on irregulars. My sister-in-law has picked up a few pans from there and you really can't tell that they are an irregular.

      Thanks for this information. I'd love to know if anyone knows of other cookware related outlets in PA or NJ. It would be great to keep a list of these for all of us to refer to.

        There's a LeCreuset outlet up in (I think) Montgomery county near Berks county. It's in a large outlet mall right next to the nuclear power plant. Wish I could be more specific. I'll try to get better info.

          That would be the Philadelphia Premium Outlet.


          I haven't checked out the Le Creuset store, tho. Le Creuset lasts forever and 25+ years ago I got what I needed. Still looks new.

            That's good to know. I have one small piece of Le Creuset that my SIL gave me that belonged to her mother. Seems very sturdy and cleans up perfectly. I saw lots of nice pieces last week at the HG store in Moorestown in all sorts of colors. Didn't check the prices, though.

              You can also join the VIP club for the outlets, getting access to coupons/discounts/sale emails... there are a few other "foodie" places at the Phila Prem Outlets in Limerick as well. (This is about 15 mins West of KOP for those unfamiliar)

                There's also a Calphalon store there. I haven't been in there tho. :)

                We just got a larger Le Creuset oval Dutch oven at the outlet up in Limerick. Great deal. They gave us the same price as the scratched ones but for a new one. Just ask.
                Here's the odd thing though. The next week we were cooking with our 20 year old smaller Le Creuset Dutch oven. When we were cleaning it up we noticed a non-repairable gouge on the bottom and had to toss it. Was it jealous about the new addition to the family? We'll never know.

                  Before tossing it, you should have called LC customer service. There's a lifetime warranty on their products and, based on my personal experience, they really do stand behind it. Chances are they would have replaced your damaged piece free of cost.

              Despite many attempts, I've never found a good deal on pots, pans or bakeware at Cookware and More in Trooper. Many of the pots and pans are severely damaged and yet they cost plenty. I've been horrified by the gouged, bent, warped items that they sell for probably 25% discount over brand new. A more favorable part of the outlet is the wide variety of miscellaneous (new and undamaged) accessories that are admittedly costly but nonetheless enticing. The Trooper outlet is not for the budget-conscious or budget-strained. However, around the corner on Foundry Road is Taluto deli outlet. A 10-minute shopping stint there will more than make-up for your disappointment over Cookware and More.

              They're actually having a sale now that I think might end on April 2nd

                I would also recommend T.J. Maxx; they often have All-Clad, though it's hit and miss. I bought a large saucepan there for $30 and a small stock pot for $15. I'm not sure if they're irregulars, but if they are, you can't tell. Good hunting!

                  One way to know if it's an irregular is if there's a "S" etched on the pan, usually around the handle. Typically it's only a cosmetic defect.

                  Also, for those in western PA, the All Clad store has a seconds sale twice a year at the Washington County fairgrounds. Great prices.

                    Is there any outlet store near the factory, or is this place near Philly the only real outlet?

                    Fearing that there's no actual outlet, do you happen to know when the next sale is?

                    HomeGoods also carries nice cookware at discount.

                    Does anyone go to the QVC Outlets? There's one in West Chester and another in Frazer.

                      Where in West Chester is it? I know there used to be one near the K-Mart on Paoli Pike, but I think it's no longer there.

                        I googled it and came up with this ....

                        But it must be gone now. I know the one in Frazer is still open.

                      For what its worth there is also a Calphalon outlet store at the Philadelphia Premium Outlets in Limerick. Like any outlet store the deals are hit or miss. We live close enough to drop-in periodically, and have been able to pick up some really good deals! They also offer some decent coupons through the outlet and sometimes for responding to a post purchase questionaire.

                        I bought a really nice Calphalon pan at either TJ Maxx or Marshal's, great price too.

                        Wilton Armatele is a nice place to check out. Its in Mount Joy which is just west of Lancaster.

                        If you visit there, be sure to check out Bube's Brewery. The catacombs are very cool:

                          Here's some info about the seconds-sale in June. The next one might be in December. http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09155/...
                          If you go to the All-Clad web site, you can get on their mailing list. They might let you know in advance when the next seconds-sale will be. Or around Thanksgiving you could start checking the Post Gazette site for stories about All-Clad.

                            The all clad outlet is in an industrial park off Germantown pk between Fairview Village and East Norriton. Take Foundry lane off Germantown to Industry Lane, then turn right. Gambone and Direct Buy are on the corner of Germantown where you turn. They are real nice in that store with all kinds of kitchen things besides all clad. Also check out Talluto's authentic Italian food store and Antione Amrani Chocolate Factory in the same park. Tallutos is just a hole in the wall but their pastas, olive bar, sandwiches and dinners to go are excellent. Amrani chocolates are expensive but you've never tasted chocolates so good, wonderful flavor that lingers on the tongue. It's a mini foodie destination in an industrial park.

                              Wow !! Thanks for that. I grew up in Fairview Village and my mom still lives there. Gives me a reason to visit until the line at Penny's Pizza thins down.
