Sitram Cookware
« on: April 01, 2012, 09:08:24 PM »


I got some really good quality cookware, better than the crap I use at least.  It's called Sitram Bistro Pro.  I'm not sure if this is professional/ commercial cookware or not.  I can't find much info on the Bistro Pro series, I think they probably stopped selling it long ago.  I found other Sitram series' and it's pretty expensive and they do have a professional series.  This was from my 2nd unit and it's the first set of cookware I've found.  I really have no idea what to sell this for or what features people look for in cookware.  It is well used, but it's real heavy and feels high quality to me.  Any tips or suggestions are appreciated.  I have more pics too if needed.

Cookware is a hard one to price. Those look like the home edition. Industrial usually doesn't have glass top and have solid handle's.

I love cooking and trained under a French chef for two years out of highschool (before deciding the kitchen wasn't my dream) so I'm only good for a cooks view, not a flea sellers view.

But I wouldn't pay more that $5ea piece.  You can get new, same/better quality, at Ross for $10-25ea. Less per piece if you buy set.

And I believe those dont have the added, thicker, base plate (bottom)?

I'd say toss ur stuff and use them yourself.
Quality cook sets make all the difference and make cooking more enjoyable.

I would do like Alias and use it myself, but I'm into cooking, so I would actually get some enjoyment out of them.

The pieces on ebay have done pretty well, but shipping the lot would be a pain and these are probably in rougher shape than the ones I saw in the completed listings.

I'd probably throw them on Craigslist for $75 OBO and see what kind of response comes in.

Good luck!!

You may do well on eBay since your listing would be against all the eBay stores overpriced listings.

If people don't research and see $75 new and then your used.....


What I meant to say before with pricing cookware is, for example, I have an Emeril pan that on HIS site sells right now for $125. eBay and various sites, $60-90.
I got it at Ross for $15!


The stuff is so overpriced to begin with and prices all over the board......hard to say what used would go for.

I have had good luck selling higher quality cookware on Craigslist, I think $50-$75 would have been about right in near new condition. You mentioned they were "well used" so you may want to do like Alias said and keep it yourself and replace the cookware you have.

I could probably pull $25-$30 at the flea market with that set. Original retail price and name brand mean almost nothing at my flea market, getting more then $5 for a used pot & lid and more then $3 for a used skillet is near impossible, even if the set retailed new for $200. Scratches on the surface and burns on the bottom will kill the value of any cookware.

ok, thanks guys.  Just to correct something someone said, they do have the plated bottoms.  They are made in France.

If they do have the heavy gauge bottom then I'd keep them if, as you say, your current set isn't very good. You will notice difference  for sure! 
I love the handled Rondeau. The saut pan thing on far left. New, that was probably a $100+ pan if you bought it individually.
Those are great for browning off meat then straight into oven.

Like was said above, if you need the money I'm sure you could get $50-ish.
But sometimes not spending money IS making money.
you got a great product there that, taken care of, will last a lifetime.
Grab a cook book and enjoy them! :)

With everyone on keep them. And sell what you have. We have sold the uglest used up pots and pans like crazy. They were cheap, .50 a piece then decided we were selling too cheap raised price to $1. each piece (lid is separate) sold out.

So keep them and sell yours.  ;D

I'm not much of a chef, so I'll try and sell them first but at least if someone tries to lowball me I can say "if I can't get at least $75 I'll just keep them".
