I've purchased three items on their "seconds" sale, and all of them looked first quality to me. The last item came in standard retail packaging without any indication of it being a "second". I've already replaced all of the items that needed replacing, so no additional purchases for me at this point.

Yeah... money's very tight for me at the moment. Plus I already have a handful of All-Clad pans. Maybe next time around.

I was just throwing it out there since I got the email this morning. There is more available than the last couple of times I checked. I didn't need much either, but the griddle is needed for our camping trailer.

Some of those are such good deals I'm practically crying. Darn car repair.....although when I think of it, with the kind of cooking I do, getting All Clad for me is like getting a race car to just sit in commute traffic. I have to ask myself, "Why?"

Thanks for posting, I am drooling over the great price on a copper core chef's pan. I want one but just ordered a new toy this morning (I ordered kettlepizza).

But not for the type of cooking where you burn the grease into the pan! Nobody starts a neophyte rider out on an Olympic-bound horse.

Good-quality tools always make a difference, but if you keep thinking about yourself like that, you will never get better. Now that you know you are using too high a temperature to preheat your pan, you can stop and your cooking will improve.

True. Of course, now that I think about it, isn't the copper like an Olympic bound horse?

But here's what I need to figure out with my pans. How high is too high? My stove knob goes up to 7 and I am usually cooking on 3. Any lower, and I'm going to be simmering everything.

And what do I do about food that needs a high heat? Like searing steaks? And scrambled eggs? I love Julia Childs' method of making scrambled eggs and she starts them on a high heat.

Then there's all the stuff I make that goes into a 425° oven while it's still in the pan. That was my point in getting stainless steel in the first place, that I could take the pan from the stove and put it right in the oven.

I have done that with the copper and it seems to be all right. In fact, the only thing that makes my copper discolor is my stove and I think a lot of that is because of the electric coils.

By the way, the grease I burned into the pan? My pan was only on 3 when I did that. It did clean right out though with Bar Keeper's Friend.

Today I received the 20 x 13 griddle that I ordered last Tuesday. Looks perfect, came in the retail box, with the normal advertising paperwork enclosed. If there is a cosmetic defect, I can't find it. And the price is sure right - $99.95 on Amazon, $39.95 on the sale.

Congrats on that griddle Rick, it looks like a honey.

The one thing about it I'm questioning is why the unnecessary huge tall handles? For me, they would be a vertical storage problem.

I like the tall handles for ease of handling - not too worried about storage. When we get our new hard side camping trailer, it will live there and do multiple duty as a griddle/frying pan/baking sheet. I can cook an entire breakfast of sausage and eggs on it all at the same time - or a half dozen pancakes or 4 slices of French toast. I can do a semi stir fry with peppers and onions and meat strips as long as it isn't too saucy - lots of possibilities.

I'm going to enjoy figuring out all of the uses I can put it to out in the woods. It's a perfect size to straddle 2 burners on the typical 3 burner stove that is common in campers.
