***ALL COMMENTS CLOSED! To see the Winter 2016 sale, see THIS POST! ***
There are certain times of the year where I get super excited:
♥ Birthdays (Mr.Fantabulous’ or mine)
♥ and the All-Clad Factory sale (it’s a double bonus as it happens TWICE a year!
I’ve known the dates now for a couple of weeks which was pure for me to not share with you guys. Easily I’d get 50-100 emails a day “Hey TKW, when’s the next sale?”, “What do you recommend at the next sale and btw when is it?” or “Hey I need to schedule my vacation for this sale, when is it?” Seriously LOVE this! Knowing that folks are just as much into these amazing products as I is priceless! I’ve been so fortunate in my career to have met and worked with so many incredible folks from All-Clad. Honestly I don’t think there is one more genuinely nice statement I can make about this company. Not only are their products superior from a chef/home chef/engineer standpoint but also the employees are truly exemplary. For more details about the specifics of their products read one of my numerous posts about All-Clad.
Feel free to ask questions below; if I don’t know the answer I can do my best to find out. So what would *I* recommend getting if you’re a first timer? First go with what is in your price range.
- 12″ Stainless Steel Pan
- 10-12″ Non-Stick pan
- All-Clad PC8 (Pressure Cooker) – this is honestly AMAZING!!!
- Stock pot
- Dutch oven
- Sauce Pan (1-2 sizes)
Now granted there are a bajillion other things I could and would recommend but those right there are the perfect starter edition to an amazing collection! And if you’re not sure what a pan is for, just ask.

♥Things to know:
ο They accept cash and credit card (at least they did the last 18 times I’ve gone).
ο Bring a friend or two! Share the experience!
ο There is no better day to go though if there is something you really want, it’s best to go on Friday morning as items sell out fast.
ο The past few times people started lining up pretty early (like 6am) but I go later in the afternoon and there is always a boat load of product left.
ο What is so awesome about this sale is that throughout the entire 2-day sale, the wonderful folks of All-Clad keep replenishing the products.
ο If you buy more than your vehicle can fit (trust me, you will buy and buy and buy!) in the past they have offered UPS shipping.
ο The sale is in-person only; no online ordering. Take the trip and visit – Pittsburgh is GORGEOUS this time of year and it truly is a site to see!
**** Keep an eye out on my Facebook page about their V.I.P. online sale!!! This is AWESOME and perfect for those of you that can’t make the sale in person! ****
ο The All-Clad employees that work at this event are SUPER nice and extremely helpful!
ο They have recently had a few shopping carts for people to use. If they are being used they do provide heavy boxes that you can either pull around or carry.
ο If this is your first time going, be prepared to be amazed!
ο There will easily be 150k-200k people who will flow through this event.
ο When you walk in they do have a map of all of the items broken down by ‘type’ of product – Copper Core, D5, Electrics and so forth.
ο Ask for me when you’re there! I’d love to meet you and say hi!
