cuisinart warehouse sale

aser Dec 2, 2009 04:46 PM

I cleaned up today and bought a grip of pots and pans. Basically look at Cayne's website and most of the Cusinart/Waring Pro line was available at the sale for steep discounts. 50% and above. Conair products were also available for the ladies.....

I would highly suggest you go.....


Fri Dec 4 -> 12pm - 9pm
Sat Dec 5 -> 9am - 6pm
Sun Dec 6 -> 12pm - 5pm

    Thank you so much for the tip. I didn't get anything decent at the William Ashley Warehouse sale this year so I will go up tomorrow.
    How did you find out about the Cuisinart Warehouse Sale? is there a mailing list I can join for next year?

            No, it still does not work.
            This error is displayed:

            Not Found
            The requested URL /prod...cat=146 was not found on this server.

            I think the problem is that the URL is corrupted after "prod" as the 3 periods following don't look like they should be there. Does the link work for anyone else?

              Sorry, here are the fixed links. I bought strictly pots & pans, for that it's an enormous deal. The only appliance I bought was the $20 hand blender, yes it's open box w/ 90 day warranty, but it seems to be working fine. Looks brand new also.

              F&F day on Wednesday was busy, but probably not as bad as it will be this weekend. Lining up to pay took about 30 mins. To be honest, that's how it goes w/ these warehouse sales. You will have to fight the crowd, can't avoid it. Some sales are a waste of time, but this one is def worth it.

          By the way, I got one of the $40 5.5qt saute pans. When I got home I realized they only charged me $20 for it. I don't know if that was a mistake or if it was marked down. Probably a mistake.

          It was a zoo at 1pm on a friday. I can only imagine how insane it's going to be on the weekend.

            Definitely a mistake, they were $40 for me.

        This sale is an annual event, and some of the proceeds go to a Children's Wish charity. They really do have some great deals, and over the last few years we have picked up some great things.

          Thank you for telling us about this! Seems like a fantastic deal

          Can I ask how the stock/selection seemed? I can't get there until Sunday, and I'm wondering if things will be all sold out

            I can't help you with your stock/selection question, but I have another comment. I happened to be in the general area this morning and thought I'd 'drop in' and pick up a saute pan....yeah, right. Cars were parked for blocks all around the place and there was an enormous line-up at about 12:30 pm on a Friday, not even a weekend day!Looked like a two-hour process, and I didn't even get inside. It appears that it was combined with Conair products, too. Make sure you budget enough time if you go there.

              Those sorts of sales are for unemployed people, if you actually work it will cost you more than you save just to be part of the frenzy.

                  It's true. I went, wish I didn't. I wanted to get in and out, I think I was there for 2.5 hours. And a huge caveat, virtually all the electric kitchenware (coffee makers, juicers, toasters, ice cream makers, etc) are refurbished. The best deals are probably on the pans, which are new.

                Stock is very good, there are large quantities of each item stacked up together. You're not going to have to fish for things in a mountain of mess.

                If you're just browsing, probably not a good idea. If you have an idea what you want to get, then you'll find lots of deals. Again, check Cayne's site, most of Cuisinart/Waring Pro's products listed at Cayne's are available at the sale, at roughly 50% off.

                Some are new, some are open box w/ 90 day warranty.

                  thanks again for posting about the sale!

                  i managed to finally get there yesterday w/ my bf, and while the advantages were no line ups/wait time and easy parking, they ran out of some of the stock. they had JUST sold out of the saute pans which is what i really wanted, and ditto the skillets for him. esp frustrating because i saw the saute pans in other ppl's carts hah. we both picked up the 7 piece set though (what a great deal!) and a bunch of other things

                  i'll definitely remember to go earlier next year

                  And you would need one to get there and cart your stuff away.

                  Edit: I've edited this about 8 times as I remember other stuff.

                  I went yesterday. I can confirm Yongeman's impression of bedlam. It was busiest when I arrived, but had actually quietened down by the time I left (5:30pm) The lineup was over an hour to pay. On arrival parking was a nightmare, but was simplicity itself at leaving time. Certain items had already run out. So, no immersion blenders or mini-choppers.

                  The refurb stuff I bought has never been used. It's just returned open-box stuff. Here is some of my stuff:

                  Two ionic hair driers. $12 each. ALL the hair driers are twelve dollars.


                  Two of those tourmaline ceramic hair straightener thingies at $20 each. Here is one of them...


                  Then on to cooking. I got this food processor plus a weird whisk attachment. http://www.amazon.ca/Cuisinart-Food-Processor-Metal-cup/dp/B0000VZZJ0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen&qid=1260024754&sr=1-1 for $125. As I said earlier, never been used.

                  Then a coffee burr mill http://shop2.aol.ca/shop/product--locale_en__productId_2784624.html for $20

                  I also noted the following:

                  Waring Pro induction ring. $75: http://www.amazon.com/Waring-ICT100-Professional-Induction-Cooktop/dp/B000VWFMNW/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top It is better than the 3/5 review suggests as one woman gave it 1/5 because it didn't work with her ceramic pots.
                  14 cup food processor $90
                  Whole bunch of 'lesser' food processors for lesser price, including one with a 'free' mini chopper. Here are some and my best recollection (ie not very trustworthy) :
                  I think $80 for http://www.amazon.com/Cuisinart-DFP-14BCN-Processor-Brushed-Stainless/dp/B0000645TW/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1260030699&sr=8-4
                  There were 7 & 11 cup ones as well.

                  Lots of breadmakers, ice-cream makers
                  Waring pro slicer $50
                  Percolators and electric kettles were good value.
                  Stacks of coffee makers including at least one grind-and-brew.
                  A wall full of those TSC-type foot massagers, pedicure, spa whatsits. Sorry wasn't interested in them. Tried to imagine a culinary use for them and failed.
                  Really solid/heavy electric can opener at I think $20. May be this one: http://www.amazon.ca/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=cuisinart+opener&x=0&y=0
                  Lots of toasters, 2 & 4 slots plus double length slot. I think it was $30 for this one: http://www.amazon.ca/Cuisinart-CPT-170C-Countdown-2-Slice-Toaster/dp/B002RWJNDE/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen&qid=1260028597&sr=8-3
                  Food slicer $50: http://www.amazon.ca/Waring-Pro-FS150C-Food-Slicer/dp/B000CFU75G/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen&qid=1260028789&sr=8-5
                  Food grinder $40 I think: http://www.amazon.ca/Waring-Pro-MG100NC-Meat-Grinder/dp/B002S51Y4G/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen&qid=1260028789&sr=8-6
                  Cuisinart 800 watt stand mixer was $150. http://www.amazon.ca/Cuisinart-SM-55C...
                  The 1000 watt one was $200.
                  At various prices there were bowls, and these stand mixer attachments: meat grinder, pasta maker, food processor, blender. All of these were less than 50% of Amazon price but supplies were shortening.
                  Ice cream makers, both the soft sludge type and the proper churn one. Can't remember the price but I suspect 50% off normal shop price.

                  They still have lots of stock as of Friday evening.
