I'm not familiar with Emerilware but there have been several threads on the stuff. You might get a lot of info from a search.
If price isn't an issue, and you want stainless, I'd recommend All-Clad. In general, I prefer tri-ply stainless to disk bottom stainless, especially if you have a gas stove. With smaller pans and skillets, the gas flame can extend beyond the edge of the disk and cause burning where it hits the thin stainless sides of the pan. That wouldn't be as much if a problem with an electric stove.
Good luck and have fun shopping for your new pans.
