You remember all the angst I had deciding to buy my first All Clad pan last fall? Well they had this invitation only factory seconds sale in January. I didn’t think the discounts would be that great and I thought maybe I’d buy one or maybe two pans to replace the ones I had which were peeling their non-stick coating the worst.
Then I went crazy. Not totally insane but crazy. It’ll take me a couple months – maybe three considering I had car insurance too – to pay them off but I have everything I need. There are still things I want eventually but I think I’m covered for anything I am likely to need.
And if you have ever wondered about taking the risk of All Clad’s absolutely no return policy for their factory seconds sale – well, here is a photo of the hideous flaw I found on one of the pans.
That divot is roughly pin sized. I don’t know how I will live with it. At 50% or more off, I suspect I will live with it gleefully.
