Not %100 to the description and not sure if new.

I ordered from "HouseWares Distributors" and the box that was delivered had already been opened before and the pan looks new but seemed to have a few black spots and watermarks on it. I don't think I got a used/refurbished pan but I'm not sure. HouseWares Distributors" also shipped the pan it it's original box with USPS envelopes stuffed inside for padding. I've got some sketchy neighbors so having the contents displayed is a bit bad.
I was also a bit thrown off after noticing that it read "made in china" on the side of the box when I thought Allclad was pretty huge on promoting how their cookware is made in America. I hear that cookware made in China doesn't seem to hold up as well, but I guess that it doesn't really bother me that much since I don't cook too often, just thought it was a bit misleading. I guess if I had looked long enough I would have found that out. Another thing that seems off is that the image of the handle is for a totally different thing and doesn't match the one on the grill pan. Not really a lot of stuff that matters, but enough to make me wonder what else is different.
After using it a few times, I've noticed that it still has a really bad smell to it and doesn't seem to distribute heat very evenly. I don't think I'll be using this pan any more.
