SEATTLE--April 24, 2001--Amazon.com, Inc., (Nasdaq:AMZN) today announced that, as an authorized online retailer for All-Clad Metalcrafters, Inc., it has launched a brand-new All-Clad store within its Kitchen & Housewares store.
The All-Clad store, accessible at http://www.amazon.com/allclad, is dedicated exclusively to helping customers conveniently find and discover the entire lineup of All-Clad products. The store will feature All-Clad's popular Stainless, Master Chef 2, LTD, Cop-R-Chef and Copper Core collections, as well as the new Emerilware line.

"Our customers have told us that they look to Amazon.com to find and discover quality brands at great prices," said Eric Broussard, vice president of Amazon.com's Home and Kids businesses. "All-Clad's premier cookware, with its attention to quality and innovative functionality, is a great addition to an already impressive lineup of prestigious brands in the Amazon Kitchen & Housewares store. We know they will be a big hit with our customers because we were getting multiple pre-order sales for All-Clad's cookware before the store even arrived."
"We're incredibly excited to work with the leading online retailer of kitchen products to add another great way for our customers to easily find the All-Clad products they enjoy," said Jeffrey Sayles, vice president commercial for All-Clad. "We look forward to expanding our relationship in May when we launch the Emeril Lagasse boutique, featuring Emerilware and cookbooks by the famous author, chef and host."
The Emeril boutique will feature a complete line of Emerilware, designed and manufactured by All-Clad with TV Food Network host Emeril Lagasse, and will be located within the All-Clad store at Amazon.com.
