This is a GREAT pan!
on October 4, 2002
The 8/18 12 inch fry pan by Emeril is outstanding. I bought it to replace a Belgique fry pan that was about 15 years old. The small rivits holding the handle to the pan just popped and I had to throw it away. I went looking for a good replacement and I found it in the Emeril 12 inch pan. This pan more than filled the bill. I have no doubt at all that it is really superior to the Belgique. It cooks more evenly than any frypan I've ever used, and the handle is rock-solid and doesn't get hot. The even cooking is due to the aluminum and copper bottom. The pan also cleans up very easily.
One of the things I like about the Emeril pan is that it has rivits that won't ever break. The pan is made by All-Clad, and is identical to their 12 inch pan, but at less than 1/2 the price. Really, if you are looking for an ideal fry pan, this is the one to get. It looks and feels good, is solid, and cleaning is no problem. It think it will outlast me!
