All-Clad pots and pans inspire an unparalleled passionate fandom in home cooks. The Pittsburgh-made cookware is tough enough to withstand a beating and somehow still looks good on your stovetop after a lot of wear and tear. And it lasts forever.
All-Clad is known for its even heat distribution and durability: The secret to this is a solid core of either aluminum, stainless steel, or copper that extends all the way to the rim of each pot and pan. These pretty babies will usually set you back, though. One of our favorite stainless steel saucepans fetches a hefty $150 at full price. And while we do think the investment is worth it, we're of course all about a good deal.
This week, the brand is hosting a major factory sale at Home & Cook Sales, meaning you can get some of our favorite products at seriously deep discounts. The pieces are seconds quality, so expect small inconsistencies (logos absent, minor cosmetic scratches) but no flaws that will affect the performance of the cookware. If you’re willing to look past those minor blemishes, shop away. Since there's such a crazy amount of merch, we’ve picked out a few of our favorites for you. One note: All the product links will direct you to the sale home page. You're also required to agree to the terms and conditions and enter your email upon your first visit—it's just an unavoidable annoyance of the sale site. We recommend copying our favorite products into your 'find' tool on the sale homepage so you can shop these pots, pans, roasting dishes, and more like a pro.
In our product test, All-Clad's pan didn't win overall due to its high price point—but at 67 percent off, it's a pre-Thanksgiving steal. While a rimmed baking sheet can do in a pinch, a roasting pan is really the ideal way to prepare your turkey. The depth of this All-Clad pan allows you add quite a few vegetables and has plenty of room for basting liquid so that your bird stays juicy and your vegetables don't scorch. The deep sides also mean that all the delicious drippings (hello, gravy) stay nice and contained.
Stainless steel curved prongs slide underneath your turkey easily to lift it onto a platter. You can also use one to stead yourself while you carve. After Thanksgiving, don't store them away until next year—they're just as useful for roasts throughout the year, like chicken, ham, or a leg of lamb.
8-Inch and 10-Inch Nonstick Skillet Set
The 8-inch and 10-inch set of nonstick frying pans are a great deal at 49 percent off of their regular price. While this nonstick skillet didn't technically win our product test of the best nonstick skillets, they are a longtime favorite of our Digital Director, David Tamarkin. The 8-inch skillet is the perfect size for omelets and crepes, while the 10-inch is just the right size for a weeknight stir fry.
10-Inch Stainless Steel Fry Pan
If stainless steel is more your speed, this 10-inch stainless steel skillet is the slightly smaller version of our product test winner. It's not at all flimsy, but it's also light enough to keep it from being unwieldy. It heats consistently, has a sturdy, comfortable handle, and doesn't show wear easily. But, best of all, the gently sloping sides make for a generous amount of surface area for browning.
Set of Paring Knives
The Epi Test Kitchen is in favor of replacing your paring knives every year, since it's essential that they be extra-sharp. Because you're not re-sharpening and re-using endlessly, we recommend going for a reliable but inexpensive small set. These two, which are 43-percent off, are only about eight dollars each. If we were to break down the cost per slice after a year of dicing...well, let's just say they're a bargain.
3-Quart Stainless Steel Saucepan
Usually $200, this 3-quart saucepan is down to $109. In our product test of the best stainless steel skillet, it impressed us with its unique proportions: This saucepan is wider than most others, which makes it more versatile for tasks like whisking a pan sauce.
Belgian Waffle Maker
When we asked one of our writers to test waffle makers, she came back declaring that none of the machines even came close to the All-Clad. The sturdy stainless steel construction, drip-catching tray, and pleasant chime when your waffles are done make it the best in the business. Unlike other waffle makers on the market, this one heats evenly and doesn't compress the batter, producing waffles that are crisp and golden on the outside and fluffy on the inside.
5-Quart Sauté Pan with Copper Core
Copper cookware is incredible, but expensive, which is why we usually lean towards stainless steel, non-stick, and cast iron. But at 56 percent off, this roomy sauté pan is considerably more affordable than most copper-core pans out there. Copper is an excellent material for even heat distribution and conductivity, while the stainless steel exterior provides a more durable surface that heats up quickly and can withstand constant use. This pan is excellent for sautéing and browning meat, and it comes with a lid which means you can always cover your food and turn down the heat for a longer cook.
Rowenta Lint Remover
Okay, this isn't cookware....but when I saw that this battery-powered lint remover from All-Clad's sister brand Rowenta was on sale, I had to include it. I use one at home, and it has kept even the oldest sweaters looking new season after season. I would buy mine again full price—meaning, this deal is too good to pass up.
