All-Clad Factory Seconds Sale - March 14

There will be another All-Clad factory seconds sale coming up on March 14. I bought a fry pan during the last sale and couldn't find the cosmetic blemish that made it a second. I've seen similar comments on a deal site.

In the past they have posted the promo code needed to enter the site once the sale is live, and I'll assume the same this time.

How does one get a promo code?

Last time it was posted on the page when the sale was live, and I'm assuming it will be the same this time, so it should appear on March 14.

I got my 12" fry pan for $89 on the last sale... love it! And like Tenspeed, no idea what it was to make it a "second". Looks perfect to me.

Pure speculation on my part, but I can see that this might be a good way for All-Clad to move some first quality excess inventory without offending their retailers. I don't know what the markup is by the time the goods get to retailers, but I'll guess that All-Clad's direct price isn't too far off from their wholesale price. There might be some seconds sold, but all of the comments I have read on a deal site are in line with the experience I had with one piece - can't identify why it is a second. Perhaps someone with better knowledge of margins through the distribution and retail chain can offer an opinion.

At any rate I'm pleased with the 12" fry pan, which is an improvement over the Calphalon pan it replaced. I have a small saucepan that's on the list for replacement, and I'll be looking for one at the upcoming sale.

Prices have increased a bit since I bought my All-Clad pieces. I suspect the sale prices may be in the range of the retail prices I paid back when.

All of my AllClad is "seconds" and I never could figure out what made them so.

Had them for nearly 20 years now, used every day, and they look pretty new still.


Thanks for posting!
