Bagging a Special Buy bargain at ALDI can sometimes prove challenging.
And this was certainly the case when the store released a Steamboat pot as part of their Asia at Home kitchenware range.
The 32cm, non-stick pot, which came with a handy in-built divider, was quickly swept off shelves around the country, leaving many disappointed shoppers unable to get their hands on one.
After one woman excitedly shared her purchase on a popular ALDI Facebook page, others said they were still scrambling to locate one.
“Wow that's awesome I didn't see those in Brisbane,” one wrote.
“Omg I need this or maybe 2 of them for all the seperate meals I cook,” commented another.
Luckily, some eagle-eyed fans have tracked down the handy kitchen item sharing where it can be purchased at an even cheaper price.
“Just found one on Catch.com.au for cheaper if you can’t find it at Aldi,” one shopper said.
Others also suggested trying Ebay and Amazon.
But it appears Catch of the Day had them for the lowest price ranging between $20.99 and $27.99 across different sizes.
But be quick, it’s sure to sell out quickly here too!
