A lot of times closed down places sell everything to an action house. I do not know how to look for one, but I do know that you are corect you can get really good prices on stuff. However it doesn't neccessary means you'll get good stuff. I bough a frying pan from a restaurant supply store a while ago, at the same time I bought one, also comercial type, from Sam's club. The one from reataurant supply is ready for the garbage. The sam's club one is still in pefect conidition.

I know! I scored an awesome deal on a complete Cuisinart cookware set last Black Friday on Amazon. I had my eye on that set for at least half an year, and I'm so glad I waited for Black Friday :)

As in with anything, you have to know what makes a good piece of equipment and be able to recognize the signs of a well made pan. You can find good and bad cookware from ANY source.

But after you have educated yourself on quality, you can find bargains in used restaurant supply stores or on the net. But I bet you, I will pay far less in a used restaurant supply store than ANYTHING you can find on places like Amazon!

I *knew* I'd seen you somewhere! I do a LOT of shopping on Amazon also! Maybe ten items a month. Love the place! Great prices usually. See ya there!
