My husband and I received a set of Emerilware Stainless Steel Cookware for our wedding. I cannot say enough about this cookware. We were originally looking at AllClad cookware but ended up going with this set because of the lower price and comparable quality. I am very happy we did. This cookware is very sturdy - no loose handles like our old pans. They clean easily and the copper ring on the bottom is very attractive, which is good because we have the pans hanging on our wall. We just have to polish the copper occasionally to keep it from oxidizing. I also love the glass lids that allow me to monitor my food without taking off the lid - plus I think they are more attractive than metal lids. My husband loves that the pans can be used in the oven as well as the cooktop. Doesn't Stick As long as you use cooking oil and don't burn your food, the pans don't stick much at all. Durability These pans are very durable. I can see us using these pans for a very long time.
