I received my 2 qt. saucepan a few days ago, and it looks perfect to me.
Amazon has the All Clad 12" fry pan on sale for $82, which is less than the $89 I bought it for at the factory seconds sale. Bonton was running an All Clad sale a week or so ago. Looks like All Clad is running into price pressure from the competition. Is Le Creuset far off?
