Emerilware 10-pc. Stainless Steel Cookware Set.

Hey, guys, let's kick it up ONE..........MORE............NOTCH!!!

I just want to tell you that I bought this 10-pc. cookware set in October, and I use it every chance I get! It's very heavy, durable and has a razor-sharp shine and a thick triple-layer clad bottom on the pans with a band of copper.

I bought it online fron ChefsCatalog.com. I love the heavy quality construction of this set! It has riveted handles, stainless steel-trimmed glass lids, and is just begging for things to be cooked in the pans!

It's made by All-Clad Metalcrafters through an agreement between them & TV celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse with his endorsement on the cookware.

You certainly won't go wrong if you buy this set. I love it!!

thanks for the info corey.
i have the 10 pc. non stick emerilware, in fact i have 2 sets (long story). i am not very happy with the non stick coating as it has worn off 2 of the pans so i threw them out. i know that i haven't abused the coating with metal utensils, so i can only assume that overheating them ruined the surface.

mudbug has the same set, and has reported to be happy with them, but then again, she "cooks" a lot in them with wine, and is a generally happy person when "cooking".

i've been thinking about getting a stainless steel set, so i'm going to compare the ss emerilware to the ss set sold in costco, and then go to wms. sonoma and drool over their sets. i wonder if you get a discount for drool covered items? probably not, they have a lot stuff that is like that.

part of my decision will be based on the lids. i cannot stand glass lids with metal rims; too hard to clean quickly. another consideration will be metal v.s. synthetic handles. i don't trust rubber or plastic looking handles in the oven, even if they say they're rated to 450 degrees.

You're welcome, buckytom!!

The main reason that I DID NOT buy a non-stick cookware set is for the reason that you stated - one of your pans started to lose the Teflon coating. Plus top health officials warn against these anyway, saying that the Teflon coating in cookware has an ingredient that supposedly causes cancer.

But do not be thrown off thinking that the stainless steel-trimmed glass lids are hard to clean. They really are easy to clean. Should you ever encounter that problem, just wash them in the dishwasher if you have one. Or just let
them soak in hot soapy water for a few minutes.

Cuiusinart & All-Clad have stainless steel cookware sets that have the matching stainless steel lids. Make sure that the set you choose has good strong riveted handles. Let me know how you make out. Good luck!

You won't regret it.

I love it!! When I'm done using mine, as part of the usual ritual, I just go ahead and clean the copper bands with a paste cleaner that I bought from the super market. It works out fine!

I also have the non-stick 10 piece Emerilware which I bought last month. I only use plastic or wooden utensils. When I clean them, I use cloth and a plastic brush. The other day I noticed that the plastic brush left fine scratches in the non-stick coating! I'm not too impressed with that.

Hence the reason that I will NEVER buy non-stick-coated cookware ever again!!

The stuff just seems to find a way to work itself loose and start peeling and flaking off anyway.

Please, don't believe the hype. Stay with non-Teflon-coated cookware.

how in the world did I miss this zinger from you (hic)? Once again, you have proved you deserve the title of mr. smartypants.

I only use the wine (that I am not drinking) in my oh-so-servicable and ancient club aluminum pans or Le Creuset or SS.

I've just added a few matching Emerilware stainless steel pans to my set, making it a 16-pc. set so far.

I may get the large 8-qt. stock pot to replace an aging large aluminum pot. Then, I want the pasta pot with the pasta insert and maybe the matching 12-inch frying pan. Then I should have a complete 20-plus-pc. set!! I should be satisfied then.
