Now through October 24, shoppers can save as much as 78% and get discounts on multiple types of cookware, bakeware, kitchen accessories and more. Keep in mind, though, that items in the Factory Seconds sale are final sale, and they might come in damaged packaging or arrive with a slight scratch or dent. However, it doesn't mean you're getting lesser quality—none of the cosmetic flaws should impact the performance.
For instance, you can get a 12-inch stainless-steel frying pan for $109.95—that's a 35% discount from its listing price of $170. This is our favorite stainless-steel skillet, having wowed us with flared sides that made tossing food easy and a 9.5-inch cooking surface area that provided plenty of room for ingredients to breathe. We were also impressed with how evenly the pan heated and how well it retained that heat, perfectly searing steaks and reducing pan sauces with ease.
If you're looking for a full set of pots and pans, we recommend this 10-piece nonstick collection, marked down to $399.95. Usually listed for $700, this set includes 8-inch and 10-inch fry pans, 2.5-quart and 3.5-quart saucepans with lids, a 4-quart sauté pan and an 8-quart stockpot (both with lids), all for 43% off. This is our favorite nonstick cookware set thanks to the sleek finish and heavy-gauge, hard-anodized aluminum build that makes the pieces more durable. We also found its lids to have a great fit.
