Emerilware Pots and Pans - Emeril Lagasse Pots

Updated on March 20, 2011

Emeril Lagasse

"BAM!" was his catch phrase, and we all know him from his toothpaste commercials and cooking shows, but like most television chefs, Emeril has his own cookware. You can purchase sets or individual pieces.

The most popular of the Emerilware cookware are the stainless steel pots and pans. They are fairly lightweight and pretty durable. My parents did a lot of research before replacing their old pans, and they ended up with Emerilware stainless steel. I followed in their footsteps and purchased a similar Emeril Lagasse pot and pan set.

Most of the sets come in either a 10 or 14 piece set including various sized frying pans, a saucepans, saute pan, and stock pot and matching lids. For the most part, you'll get the following items in a basic 10 piece set:

  • 8" fry pan
  • 10" fry pan
  • 1.5 qt. Saucepan with a lid
  • 3 qt Casserole with a lid
  • 3 qt Sautepan with a lid
  • 6 qt Tall Stockpot with a lid

Some of the sets may include the steamer insert and/or a 2.5 quart sauce pan.  Some of the sets may also include different size frying pans, as well. But for the most part, the 10 piece Emeril set is perfect to start you off.

Most of the Emeril pots and pans have flared rims that make pouring simple and easy. And, when you purchase the Emerilware pans, you get a lifetime warranty, which is a great offer.

Emerilware Stainless Steel

The stainless steel cookware pots and pans are generally most preferred. They feature a thick triple layer of stainless steel, aluminum, and copper, which are bonded together to ensure the fastest heat time and the best heat distribution.

Theses have a copper ring at the bottom of each pan so that the heat is fast and even.

They are not necessarily non-stick, so you'll have to add a little extra oil to the pans, but that's generally pretty normal.

Another concern is cooking on high. For the most part with the copper ring, you'll need to cook mostly on medium. It's find cooking on high for the initial heat-up, but to complete your meal, try to turn down the heat to medium. You don't want to ruin the copper ring.

Emerilware Pro-Clad

This series of Emeril Lagasse cookware is designed with the drip-free rims and ergonomic handles. These pots and pans make cooking easy... Well, sort of. You still need to have some idea of what you're doing.

The Pro-Clad cookware is bonded with a stainless 18/19 steel, which make them a nice piece to have in your kitchen. This series has an aluminum core to aid in faster, even heating.

The steel look is becoming more and more popular, but remember to be careful cooking on high, and add a little extra oil to your pan so that your food doesn't stick.

These pots and pans just make things a little easier for pouring and handling with the ergonomic design.

Emerilware Hard Anodized

Hard anodized pans are essentially hardened aluminum that have a longer lifespan than stainless cookware.

Watch out for washing these in the dishwasher because the detergent may discolor the outside of the cookware, generally leaving the interior unaffected. You can scrub the exterior in attempts to remove the oxidation, but eventually it will return to the discoloration.

They are non-stick, but you're still going to need to add a little oil to the bottom. They're also non-porous, highly resistant to corrosion and scratching, extremely durable, and the strongest cookware available.

Many people love the anodized cookware, but some believe that the aluminum may have potential to cook into your food overtime and usage. But, even still this style of cookware is very popular because of durability.

      I agree Nancy. I bought a small Emeril pan and, as I write, this is the second night I've let it 'soak' after scrambling eggs in it? Not happy at all. Would never buy another piece.

      I just noticed that the copper liner on the outside of my small saucepan is disappearing. I have only had this set for 11 months and have taken extra special care with them. Is there a guarantee for this?

      I live overseas and am not happy with my Emeril pans. They stick terribly and are not balanced. How do you claim the "lifetime guarantee"

      I love my Emerilware pots and pan set. The glass lids are awesome for seeing through. The have great evan heating without the huge price of All Clad and similar companies. I have ruined my copper ring with the high heat you talk about. But, whenever I get around to it I scrub it with a scouring pad and ketchup or barbecue sauce and it shines it right up. Mine is over 5 years old.
