Through Wednesday, August 12, All-Clad’s well-designed, luxury goods are marked down to insanely low price points you’ll have to see to believe. You can choose from all sorts of durable pots and pans and trusty kitchen gadgets to add to your collection, which would normally run you a small fortune. It almost seems too good to be true, right?
Here’s the rub: Since these items are all factory seconds, they may have small dents or scratches or arrive in less-than-pristine packaging. Although All-Clad can’t showcase these products, the good news is that they still function perfectly and will look absolutely gorgeous on your countertop. So if you’re looking to save some serious cash on a fancy piece of kitchenware or two, keep scrolling to find six add-to-cart worthy picks that are totally worth scooping up.
1. This nonstick pan for hassle-free frying
A dependable frying pan is a must-have in any kitchen for scrambling eggs, cooking pancakes or sautéing delicate foods, such as fish. As one of the best options we’ve ever tested, All-Clad’s nonstick, heavy-duty 10-inch frying pan is a great investment. Not only does it diffuse heat quickly and evenly, it can withstand temps of up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit in case you want to pop it in the oven. It’s also dishwasher safe. Normally $115 and reduced by $45, you can currently get it for just below $70, which is an especially amazing deal when you consider that it’s made from tri-ply bonded, American-made stainless steel.
2. A restaurant-grade waffle iron
Almost everyone gets a hankering for crispy, golden brown waffles every once in a while but you don’t have to head to your favorite diner to get ’em. All-Clad’s round waffle maker delivers the same restaurant-quality results, according to nearly 500 Amazon reviewers, who gave it an average 4.5-star rating and praise it for its solid build and consistent cooking. We’ve tested its square cousin in our roundup of the best waffle makers and thoroughly enjoyed the delectably fluffy-yet-crispy waffles it whipped out, so we’d expect nothing less from this version. Normally $129.95, it’s down to just $89.99 thanks to this sale.
3. One of our favorite stir fry pans
Stir-fry lovers, pay attention: this deal on one of the best stir fry pans is totally worth checking out. Measuring 14 inches deep and built with American-made steel, this All-Clad stainless open stir frying pan will sauté your vegetables or cook your beef and broccoli mix in a speedy, even fashion thanks to its tri-ply bonded construction. In fact, it was the only stir-fry pan we tested that didn’t have a single hot spot. Once $260, it’s now available for just below $150 with these VIP savings.
4. A high-quality roasting pan
The holidays may be months away but we’d argue that it’s never too early to invest in a durable workhorse piece for Thanksgiving dinner. Even if you’re just looking for something to elevate your next family meal, this All-Clad nonstick roasting pan should do the trick. It’s able to hold up to 25 pounds and has an average 4.7-star rating on Amazon. Although we haven’t tested this model specifically, we found that its stainless-steel counterpart excelled in our oven tests. This similar 16-inch by 13-inch model “takes the heat” and “cleans like a dream,” according to Amazon shoppers, so if you’re going to buy one roaster to last a lifetime, this is a good one to invest in—especially when it’s usually $150 and going for just under $60.
5. This top-rated immersion blender
Every kitchen big and small needs an immersion blender, according to our very own cooking writer, Valerie Li Stack. They’re incredibly useful for blending up all sorts of bisques, sauces and pestos, making them a truly diverse tool to have in your repertoire. When we tried out all the best hand blenders, All-Clad’s stainless-steel immersion blender emerged near the top of our list, as we found it to be a robust, well-built option that blended soups, smoothies and mayo in a flash. Thanks to this Factory Seconds Sale, you can nab a souped-up rechargeable version for $129.95, which is $70 ff its usual $199.95 price tag.
6. This premier slow cooker with an LCD display
When it comes to the simplest ways to cook a dinner, slow cooking just might rank supreme. All you have to do is dump in your ingredients in the pot and let the machine do the rest, which is truly ideal for those who are busy with work or taking care of the kids. When we put slow cookers to the test, we found All-Clad’s 6-quart oval model ($179.95) to be an absolute “beast” in the kitchen, although we didn’t love its preprogrammed cook times. This upgraded, 5-quart version features a 10-hour programmable countdown timer, and, if its anything like All-Clad’s other stainless-steel gadgets, you can count on it for long-lasting performance (and to look great on your countertop). Williams Sonoma shoppers are pleased with it too, with one buyer stating it “heats up quickly and cooks food to perfection.” There’s never been a better time to buy it either, as it’s currently more than $120 off.
