Used cooking equipment

how comfortable are you buying 'previously enjoyed' cookware for your kitchen?

i need a few things but can't afford new and am having a hard time getting over the used factor. it puts me off that I know that the piece has probably been exposed to quite a bit of what i don't know.

am i the only one? and what are your experiences with used cookware? did anything nasty grow on your face after using it? :P just kidding.
