Calphalon Sale?

Anyone heard if they are going to rent out an empty store again this year for their big sale?

They only do it every 2nd or 3rd year and I think this might be the one.

They sold things through Andersons the last year or two, but it wasn't nearly as good as the other, bigger sales.

What say you?

On a somewhat related note. My wife and I had received several calphalon pieces when we first started dating in the 90’s. They had not worn very well. Faded, became quite sticky, generally in bad shape. I emailed them just a month ago. I sent them the pieces, and they replaced each of them, with brand new, beautiful cookware. Stuff, undoubtedly nicer than what initially started with. We couldn’t be more thrilled. As a family that cooks all the time, we truly appreciate the quality, particularly the new stuff, and most importantly, the great customer service.

I haven't heard anything, nor seen any flyers. I did visit their Facebook page and saw that someone had asked (twice) if they were having the sale, but no one from Calphalon responded.

My Calphalon has worn out as well. I purchased it in 2002. I'm probably not going to buy Calphalon again. I don't think its all its cracked up to be. I do love my stockpot though.

I've already discarded and replaced the 12" frying pan. The 10" is just about shot too.

Email them-they’ll replace them, no questions asked. Also-the quality of new stuff is great

We slowly replaced (almost) all of our Calphalon stuff with All-Clad. It's more expensive, but I don't see myself having to buy another frying pan for the rest of my life, so there's that.

It's great that Calphalon will replace their cookware though. I love it when a company stands by their product, no matter how old it is.

Top of the line All-Clad is lifetime cookware. That said, I have a number of Calphalon pieces that have held up well. They are the newer (last five years) pieces and the quality is great.

The only Calphalon piece (8 qt. stockpot) I ever had trouble with I bought from Williams-Sonoma. They replaced it no questions asked. Ended up having problems with the replacement after a few years and they replaced it again. "Old" model no longer made so I received the new version of it. Much higher quality - and comes with a pasta/steamer insert.

One of the great things about Williams-Sonoma - generally pricey but they stand by everything they sell - for life.

And that is why I only buy kitchen supplies at W-S!

Although I can’t find any official announcement, an employee told me that Williams-Sonoma announced yesterday that they are closing their Toledo location.

Very sad if true. But not terribly surprising. I was surprised they located one here to begin with since WS stores are typically found only in upscale areas.
