All-Clad Seconds Sale 2009


It’s that time of year again, folks—the All-Clad Seconds Sale is next weekend, June 5th and 6th. Last year I made the trip to the Washington County Fairgrounds near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and was amazed by the deep discounts. You can read this post and its comments for a full report, but here’s a quick recap: The prices on a wide range of All-Clad’s high-quality (cough, very expensive) pots and pans were reduced by 40% to 70%, and I wound up with two flawless and reasonably-priced pots that I now use all the time.

If you’re in Pittsburgh next weekend but can’t make it to the Washington Fairgrounds, a local kitchen store and cooking school called Crate is holding their own All-Clad Seconds sale. According to the Crate website, Wüsthof knives will be also be discounted, as well as some cutting boards, towels, and salt and pepper mills. I’ve never been to this location for the sale, so I can’t vouch for how long the lines might be or how much merchandise will be there.

Wherever you wind up in your quest for pots, it looks like Pittsburgh is the place to be next weekend. Happy shopping, and let me know how the sale goes!

    I first heard about this sale a couple of years ago, and have never been able to go. It does sound amazing! My sources say to bring a friend; it’s definitely a “team sport”! happy hunting to anyone who gets there — may you find wonderful pots in perfect condition for unbearably low prices!

      It does help to have a pot hunting partner in crime; last year I searched for pots, and sent my husband to find the corresponding lids! It’s a lot of fun, if you can make the trip!

    Hi. I just had to post something. I searched all the blogs for the 2010 June All Clad Seconds Sale trying to determine if I should make the 4 hour trip from Baltimore. Well, thanks to your site I did. I have no regrets. I wish I could go again today. I like specific information on sales like this so here it is (so you can prepare for the Dec sale):
    – Know what you want and what it costs on Ebay, Amazon, WS, Bloomingdales, etc. – BECAUSE, some of the prices were better in the stores. For example, the grill pan was selling for $95 when Bloomindales has had it on sale for the past year for around $49 sometimes less.
    – Bring a basket if you decide to buy alot
    – Biggest deals were on Copper Core by far. Now, I personally use the regular stainless everyday and think that they are good enough. BUT, at the prices the Copper Core was going for, you just couldn’t beat it! So here is just a taste…most (if not all) Copper Core was 70% off. So, I bought a $445 8 qt stockpot for $133 + $19 lid (small scratches). Sauce pots (CC) went for $73 but they ran out of lids. Chef pans went for $109
    -Another big disount was on electrics (I did not buy because I was alone and tired of carrying and pulling everything around) – The prized and coveted $300 7 qt slow cooker aluminum went for $149 and they were selling like crazy. By 11:00 the AC rep said that she was on her 4th pallet. The E-grill went for like $150 I think.
    -They had Copper R galore but noone wants to polish now days, right?
    – Non-stick was not priced well at all. I could find better deals at WS or Ebay and maybe Bloom’s during their hot sales.
    – Utensils were discounted but not enough for me…I can be cheap about some things. Utensils went for $11, some $15. When they go to $5 then I will buy:>)
    – Got a LTD 10″ Stir Fry (cute as a button) for $33
    – Krups Coffee pots went for $39
    So, in summary, I will be back in December as I asked if customers in line (nicest people for the most part) and the sales folks if the discounts are as good in December and they said yes. Only thing is that some of the staff are unfamiliar with the warranty policy. After I had spent over $800 she said that there wasn’t a warranty. Well, because of the blogs, I knew she was wrong. I called All Clad HQ and they said Limited Lifetime warranty, meaning send it back and you will get another second…sounds good to me.

    If you would like pics. Let me know. I have pics of pots I bought. Thanks for reading!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
