The Saga of a Copper Pot (cont'd)

Back in early March I ordered a fairly large (8.5 qt.) Bourgeat copper pot with a lid from It never arrived and after several unsuccessful attempts to reach a customer service rep there, I canceled the order in mid-April via email and voice mail messages. Today I received an email saying that my order has (finally) been shipped. But I no longer want the pot. After successfully ordering two other pieces of copper cookware, I've become aware of how very heavy these pieces are, and although I've come to love cooking with copper, an 11" casserole would just be too heavy for me to manage, once it was filled with whatever I was cooking.

It turns out that customer service is now back up and running at TTF, and I just spoke to someone who assure me they'd send me a return shipping label, so I can easily return it. But here's my dilemma: when I ordered the pot, the price was $272. The price for the pot at various other websites is considerably more ($385 and up). I really don't want the pot, but at the price it seems so worth it! I guess I have three choices: keep it (and maybe learn to love it), return it, or sell it. What to do, what to do...
