    Hi, Jason:

    If you don't mind irregulars/seconds, http://www.cookwarenmore.com/

    They claim at least 32% off MSRP.

      Have you bought any of the irregulars?

      I'm in the market for two or three new saucepans. I don't mind dings and scratches such as you would accumulate through use but I don't want anything totally f'd up either.

        Hi, kengh:

        Nope. I sorta skipped over A-C on my way from LC to copper.

        FWIW, others here have commented that they can't differentiate between the seconds and the "Firsts".

          I've bought an irregular skillet and stockpot at cookwarenmore.com, and all that was wrong with them was that they were pre-scuffed on the bottom.

          They were much cheaper than retail.

            Good to know. There is apparently a special going on for the 1 1/2 quart sauce pans. Just bought a couple from Amazon since they were 79 or so versus 72 for the irregular.

            Most of our All-Clad comes from cookwareandmore.com, although they used to have a shop in Flemington, NJ and we would travel there to pick out our pots and pans. All of the flaws are pretty minor, and can be as small as the LTD on the bottom being mis-printed. Call them and talk to them about what you want, and they will likely work to find you something with the fewest flaws.

            I just bought two more pieces during their 20% off spring sale. A 2-qt saucier and a 3-qt saucepan. I have 4 pieces from them, and I couldn't even find a flaw on them.

            I wouldn't buy anywhere else.

            This is a pretty good deal on a 10 or 12 inch fry pan with lid...


            Check the Clearance section there for other deals.

              If you aren't in a hurry and have a TJ Maxx or Marshalls nearby, start checking them out. I think you will find the best prices there. Once in a great while, you might find an absolute steal. I think the going price for a 12" saute pan is currently $59.99 at TJM, but a couple of weeks ago, I found two for $39.99 each at Marshalls. Also check Ebay.

                I have bought a bunch of stuff from cookwarenmore, as have others who have responded. Their idea of irregular/seconds is pretty strict. Like a scratch or two on the bottom which, after you have used the pan once or twice, is never seen again. Can't recommend them too highly, or, as another respondent commented, call them and they will work with you. .

                  I have looked at cookwarenmore and i just cant pull the trigger, the reason why is because i have no control over the defected.
                  Im just being cheep wanting a new all clad for cheep lol

                    I have bought from them as well and there was certainly nothing that I could possibly detect as a defect. Remember, this is cookware that is going to get used; presumably not added to a permanent museum collection. You will have to spend considerably more time cleaning and polishing your pieces than cooking with it if you intend to keep it looking like it came out of the box for more than a few weeks. At that point any visible defects will be masked by normal wear and tear.

                      Do not think this! I m hard pressed to find the smallest scuff! There is absolutely no way that they would send a defect that could affect performance. They are perfect in my eyes. I just bought two more pieces.

                      If you plan to house them unused in a museum.... Pay full price. If you plan on using them even once, then they'll sustain more 'damage' them they have from cookwarenmore.

                      Try looking on Ebay.

                        eh, I watched all-clad pieces on ebay for a while until I realized that the vast majority of good pieces were going for the same or more money than they could be had elsewhere. The exception was the occasional piece that was mis-categorized or mis-labeled. Many pieces seem to be being sold by people re-selling what they find at homegoods for more money.

                        Bed Bath & Beyond has the 3 qt. stainless saute pan and lid for $99.99 with free shipping. They recently sent out a 20% off one item e-mail with a code, and this item was on the page in the link and that brings it down to $79.99. I would call them and see if you can get them to send you the promo e-mail to get the discount.

                          I just bought a nice saucepan at HomeGoods which is affiliated with TJMax and Marshalls. Will be stopping by those, too.

                            I picked up a pretty good collection of AllClad at my local TJMaxx. Also some fancier stuff like Swiss Diamond, all at half price or less.

                            If you live in Canada the Hudson Bay has it on sale for %30 off. looking at the 5 piece tool set for $100.00. NOT SURE if a good deal found out that their are different type of sets and maybe this is the cheep one.Looked online cant find anything better for this area. Please advise.

                              Wms-sonoma is selling the 4 quart essential pan for a hundred bucks. Ltd. time father's day deal, I think.
