The dishes come fully dressed highly recommended by WIRED reviewers and culinary experts. Consisting mainly of stainless steel, the company’s pots, pans and other kitchenware are durable and reliable. Factor in the lifetime warranty that applies to most of the range, and it’s easy to see why people feel the investment is worth it.
That investment is usually pretty big, but right now, the All-Clad Factory Seconds Sale is offering up to 50 percent off a wide selection of imperfect (but still functional!) cookware. This event only happens a few times a year. The deals are slated to last until July 13—just like Amazon Prime Day and its many competing sales.
You will need to enter your email address to access the offers. Please note that all sales are final. Flat rate shipping is $8 and items are shipped in 10-15 business days.
What are factory seconds?
Factory Seconds Sale is operated by Home and Cook Sales, an authorized dealer for All-Clad and several other cookware brands. Items featured in the sale are items with (usually) minor flaws, such as a scratch on the pan, a misprinted name, or in some cases, just a dented box. Every product on the website has imperfection details.
While defects may vary, the dealer says all cookware will function as intended. Should any problem arise, almost every All-Clad Factory Seconds product is still backed by All-Clad’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. (Electric products have a slightly different warranty. See individual product pages for details.) I’ve personally used about a dozen Factory Seconds pots and pans, and they all performed exactly as advertised. Just remember that all sales are final.

This pan lives up to its namesake. We recommend it in our guide to the only pots and pans you need in your kitchen. Its shape makes it possible to saute, fry, sauce, and even bake. It is both oven and dishwasher safe. The listing says that this pan is second grade (meaning a physical imperfection). A smaller size with packaging damage is available for the same price.
My household grills a lot, and this pan has been a staple since it arrived. There are small holes in the bottom which make it good for even grilling or smoking delicate or finicky products like asparagus, fruit or fish. I like the handles, which are big enough to carry the basket inside without worrying about spills or burns. The listing states packaging damage.
Every fully lined pan I tried was shallower and wider than other brands. It’s a unique shape, with gently curved sides that make it easy to stir pan sauce or flip food with a spatula. The 8 inch size linked here is good to use if you are unsure. The listing states Second Quality, so there is some physical blemish.
In my opinion, electric grills are disgusting. They take up so much space! All so we can make pancakes in larger batches? Enough. Place this square griddle on the stovetop and it will do the same thing as the behemoth electric version that currently takes up an entire shelf in your cupboard. In addition to pancakes, these grills are also great for grilled cheese sandwiches. The listing states packaging damage.
