It’s no secret that we here at The Kitchn, like many other pro and home chefs, love All-Clad cookware. It’s definitely earned its stellar reputation, according to our editors. The quality of their pieces is hard to beat; after all, they’ve been a staple in our kitchens for almost two decades, so you could say that they’re worth the money and then some. “I’m 100% confident mine will [last a lifetime],” our former food editor, Meghan, wrote. “Given the high price point, I can definitely understand the temptation to buy a set to try to save a little money, but I love the way I built my collection over time, getting the pots and pans I truly needed.”

That’s not to say you have to pay full price, however. Right now, it’s never been easier or more economical to start your own All-Clad collection (or add onto it). The brand’s VIP Factory Seconds Sale is in full swing, and one of the most versatile items you can buy is going for over 60% off. Read on for all of the details about this stellar fry pan and why shoppers are saying it’s “the best there is.”

What is the Stainless Steel 10-Inch Fry Pan with Lid?

First off, a little bit of context behind the Factory Seconds: Minor cosmetic imperfections result in steep discounts. They might not be engraved on the bottom, or include slight variances that are hardly noticeable — but there are no defects that hinder performance. This do-it-all pan offers all of the hallmarks of any brand-new All-Clad, ideal for everything from searing to browning to frying. Turning food is a breeze due to its flared sides and flat base. Most importantly, its three-ply stainless steel (All-Clad’s most popular line) construction is just as exceptional, heating quickly and thoroughly. For just $70, it even comes with a lid to help retain moisture and cook meats to perfection. And, like any All-Clad item, it’s backed by a lifetime warranty.

What All-Clad Shoppers Are Saying

Average Rating: 4.5/5

“I love this skillet!! That is all I can say. It’s freaking easy to clean, no sticking… Just heat and magic! Well worth the investment!!” — Beaver Dam

“Fine craftsmanship, excellent construction, swift border perfect for sliding cooked food off to plate. Long handle and angle perfectly set for avoiding heat from adjoining burners. Perfect weight to size ratio. Perfect for steaks, fish fillets and mostly for spanish style omelets. Made some cod fillets and came like a magazine picture; nicely cooked WITHOUT STICKING. The best frying pan there is.” — Zoraya

“This was my first purchase of stainless steel from All-Clad. This is the perfect 10 inch skillet that I needed and it is easy to use. Please read the directions on how to properly use and take care of the skillet. It will last you a very long time. I will continue to purchase more All-Clad cookware.” — Anonymous

Considering that its sale price is $100 on All-Clad’s website, grabbing it at $30 cheaper with just a minor imperfection or two is a no-brainer. Factory Seconds ends in a little over a day, though — so run, don’t walk!
