What are you going to get, Andy? Living vicariously through your spending

Not sure yet, GG. I'll look over offerings and decide which suits my fancy. I don't really need anything. It would just be an indulgence.

The sale is live. I picked up a 2 qt. saucepan to replace an old, rather thin Calphalon pan for $90. List is $165, Amazon sells it for $137. Now we'll get to play "find the defect" when it arrives.

Thanks TS. I've been without a griddle for a while, so I got their featured item. Great deal.

I looked over the product lines and there really isn't anything I want. Given I don't need anything, I was looking for something that was a "wish list" item. Nothing peaked my interest to I'll pass until next year.

I did exactly the same thing, Andy. Right now I have more cookware than I can fit in my available storage. That aside, if I had seen anything that really grabbed me, I might've bought it. But nothing did.

Some things also seemed way overpriced. For example, I could use a vegetable steamer insert, but I have no intention of paying $55 for one. There are much less expensive steamers that would work just as well.

I agree Steve. Once I learned to make a steamer out of my wok with two chopsticks and a plate, I was all set. Also, I have one of these:

WOW, I'm sure glad I ordered it this morning. When the SC came home I was showing him what I ordered, and they've already sold out! It will be great for his famous Egg Foo Yung.

Interesting. At 5:30 EDT, it wasn't available. Looks like the sale went live last night, so I'm guessing that the best deals went quickly. I saw your post that you ordered one, and checked again, and it was available. Looked a moment ago, and it's gone. Glad that you were able to get one at that terrific price.

We got our new square griddle today! We're impressed with the solid heft of the piece and it got here in time for Shrimp Egg Foo Young for Good Friday! Yeah!!!

It was a really great buy at $25. and after close inspection, we can't figure out why it's a second.
