Farewell old friends.

When Jeff and I were engaged we won these 3 pots from Dillards because we were on a wedding registry. I have had the for 14 years. I am sure that I have been eating Teflon for about 4 years because it is all scraped off. They are pretty lame pots and I have known for awhile that I should probably get some new ones, but just could not stomach the price of new ones.
Then the other day I was making the typical back of the isle swoop that so many of us make at Target (in case you don't know the end of isle's is where all the great deals are) And I saw this sticker. (another new thing I learned see the 75 on the top right corner that represents the percentage off of the price)
It was for an entire set of these!! Woo Hoo!! 8 new pans, pots and skillets. I was jumping up and down, seriously. They had like 5 sets and if they were not so heavy I would have shipped them for wedding gifts.
So, I now have no more excuses of ruining dinner. Wee hee I love a good deal and it was worth the 14 year wait.

Excellent- I love Calphalon stuff.

I still have a few older things from when we got married and I wonder if by year 14 I will be able to replace them :)

Anne said...

Oh my heavens, I need those (since I have a total of zero pots and pans)! I should go see if my Target has some.

I always do the back of the aisle sweep. Usually I just end up buying $50 of stuff I don't need, but it's so fun! That is an amazing deal. You will love those pots.

So Cool! Awesome deal, you deserve it!! I want to jump up and down, too. :o)

You will love calphalon! I got some as wedding presents, and still have them. I wouldn't cook with anything else! I scorched a pot roast like you wouldn't believe when I was first learning how to cook on a gas stove, and it cleaned out of the pot like a breeze!

What a fabulous deal. Congrats on not eating Tephlon anymore (that made me laugh cause I'm sure we're eating it too)!

Deanna Payne said...

Allison said...

Wow! What a great price, being an avid Target shopper myself color me impressed.

this blog speaks to me in a big way. my favorite place on the planet is target - not kidding - and my favorite thing to see there are those gorgeous red stickers!

Cindy said...

Great deal! I have this set and it's great. I went from no teflon (husband has problems with even the concept of eating it - even though I'd eaten it for years too :)) to this. Just be careful of the handles - I burned my hand pretty nicely not realizing they got hot (even the lids - did it again...an oh, duh moment if ever there was one)

What a great find!

Charlie said...

Wow...you found a great deal! I worked for Calphalon and I'm sure you paid less than the factory cost for that set! Nice find. You will love the cookware. They cook very well!

Lene said...

Wow - that is an amazing deal.

I never find deals like that when I have the money to spend. So glad you got them.
