I have bought a lot of mine at stores that offer 40-50% off coupons in their newspaper ads.

about 60% eBay and 40% store w/ %-off coupons.

so far, only problem w/ eBay...

ME getting carried away with bidding and not using common sense to stop bidding it up.

Biggest thing to consider w/ eBay....

the bid for the pan is only PART of the cost.

There's the SHIPPING too.

watch that shipping -- it can be very high. There have been pans I really wanted and could have gotten at a very low bid BUT when the shipping was added in they were too expensive.

Have yet to have a bad experience on eBay w/ pans and have gotten some wonderful deals.

Have only had 1 questionable experience w/ eBay for a thing for my classroom. Have even bought digital camera, digital camcorder and a DLP video project with success from eBay.

just remember -- bid sensibly and watch the shipping.

I'm an ebay addict. Just check the seller's feedback rating before you bid. The only time I had problems with purchasing it was from a seller who already had a few negative comments... but I'm still an avid ebayer! (although it doesn't quite measure up to my cc addiction!)
