All-Clad has long been one of our favorite high-end cookware brands. The company makes both stainless steel and nonstick cookware that's heavy duty, long lasting, and reliable. Of course, these things usually come with a hefty price tag. Not today, though! Today only, you can score a number of All-Clad's classic pieces at a discount, thanks to this VIP spring factory sale.
Hosted through Home and Cook Sales, the deals include discounts as deep as 76 percent off. You just have to use the passcode "ACSPRING18" to access the full line of sales. And make your purchase before Wednesday, March 14 at 9 a.m. EST. (Or as long as supplies last.)
How are these things so discounted? They're all seconds, meaning they have minor imperfections, rendering them unable to sell at full price. However, the dents and scratches are pretty minor and do not affect the cookware's performance. Personally, I've picked up a few staple items at previous All-Clad factory sales and I haven't even been able to identify exactly where the scratches are! And if you get something with a slightly bigger imperfection, just know that it'll get quickly covered as the pan becomes well-loved in your own home.
While there are temptingly huge discounts on cookware sets (like a full $500 off a 10-piece set), our favorite picks are on stand-alone staples. For example, you can get the classic All-Clad stainless steel 8-inch fry pan for $60, down from $95. (FYI: All pieces in the classic collection include a copper core, which ensures even heating, making it easier to sear meats and vegetables for better flavor.)
Other great deals on staples include this 2-quart sauté pan with lid for $75 (down from $195), which is great for pan-frying. A less essential (but no less favored) part of my own kitchen lineup also came from this sale: a 1/2-quart butter warmer. At $50, it might be a bit of an extravagance (that's at 50 off!), but the small-but-mighty pan is great for heating up butter (obviously) and other sauces.
