Emeril Stainless 12" Nonstick Fry pan
Celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse kicks it up another notch with the stainless-steel cookware collection, following the success of his nonstick collection. Bam! This 12-inch fry pan is a lustrous example of the stainless-steel collection, which is made by renowned cookware manufacturer All-Clad. Its heavy-gauge, 18/10 stainless steel is polished to a mirror finish outside and blessed with a satin finish inside to conceal utensil marks. To distribute heat uniformly and maintain it, there's a thick aluminum disk on the bottom covered in stainless steel so the pan works on any stovetop, including induction. For elegance, the disk's edge is clad in copper.
Displaying Emeril's signature, the pan's cast-stainless-steel handle is riveted for strength and has a thumb rest for comfort. In addition, the handle stays cool on the stovetop but won't be harmed by an oven's highest heat. The pan's lip flares to facilitate dripless pouring. Although Emerilware Stainless cookware is dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. The 12-inch fry pan carries a lifetime warranty against defects. --Fred Brack
