Cookware from Cutlery and More?

Have any of you ordered cookware from Cutlery and More? They seem to have decent prices with free shipping. I was just wondering how they were to deal with.
I was thinking of ordering an LC pot from there and wondered if they were first runs, seconds, factory outlets?

The website doesn't say either way.

  1. They sell new, first-quality merchandise. I haven't bought anything from them, though.

    1. Have ordered 4 different times from them with no problems. Items as described.

      1. Never ordered from them but I can recommend Chef's Resource. I bought my staub from their website. Another site had it cheaper....and they beat that price by a few bucks (I bought it here rather than the other site because they had a few more things I was buying). They have free shipping and the also have le creuset. I am trying to come up with an excuse to buy another piece. I think I want the LC 3.5qt braiser or a 5.5qt round oven. Just don't know what would go nice with my grenadine staub.

          Shawn, here's a complementary color chart I've found useful in the past. I've never seen any grenadine Staub, so I don't want to make a specific recommendation myself.

            Thanks Jay.

            BTW...Chef's Resource has an offer for a free le creuset stockpot when you spend a certain amount on LC.

        2. I have always gotten what I paid for. Shipping times have been quick and items properly packed. I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again.

          1. I've bought quite a few items from them. Whenever I have wanted to find out about an item, I have called them. They are definitely professional.

              Thanks for the replies, I think I will give them a try. I am going for 4.5 qt this time. Next on my list will probably be the 5.5 qt.

              I like to cook in big batches for leftovers or the freezer. Not that I just love leftovers, but when you work everyday, it's nice to have something in the fridge or freezer to warm up.
              I also like one pot kind of meals too. Very convenient.

              I have got to where I absolutely HATE fast food. Left overs may not be ideal, but they are better than fast food.

              So, I am all about round ovens and crock pots. :o)

                Hey! In praise of leftovers --

                I'm single, and I usually cook big batches on the weekend and refrigerate/freeze individual portions for lunch at the office. I think lots of dishes taste as good or BETTER the next day (or the next week, or the next month). Some examples: LBJ chili, gumbo, lentil soup, clam chowder, beef stew, spaghetti sauce, and chicken cacciatore.

                PS. I think my 5.5 quart LC is just the right size for this kind of cooking.

                  I'll add another example which I just made yesterday: goulash. It took a great deal of getting ingredients together and keeping all of the instructions in order. We don't make it often, but we do have enough left over for another meal, and it usually tastes better.
