Second-hand stainless cookware - good idea?

Jitterbug | Aug 19, 2009 08:13 AM

I have been researching stainless steel cookware and had been leaning toward purchasing some pieces of the Cuisinart Multiclad pro. However, I just came across an advertisement for a used set of All-Clad, and I might go check it out.

Is buying used stainless a good idea? Is there anything in particular I should look for as far as how it has been treated? Will the warranty still stand?

I normally have no reservations about purchasing things second-hand but used All-Clad still costs enough to make me think twice about it. PLUS I will be ending up with some pieces I wasn't intending to buy as it is a set.
