I have purchased almost all of my All Clad from them. My theory is the same as Jeek's ... how long will it take you to nick a brand new pristine skillet? Is it worth that amount of money to use a pristine piece of cookware for that short an amount of time?
On maybe 6 of the pieces I couldn't tell anything at all. On 2 or 3 there was a small scratch -- like 1/2 inch. On one there was a larger scratch maybe 1 1/2 inch. I contemplated sending that one back, but kept it anyway. They'll take things back, of course.
They are a great company to buy from. They have a retail store somewhere where they let you root through the stock (all "seconds") and choose your own.
Most of mine are 8-12 years old now and still going strong.
If you call and talk to them they'll probably tell you when their next sale is. I get flyers now.
