If you’re in the market for new cookware and you’re a fan of Emeril Lagasse, you’re in luck, today. Right now Amazon has this 12-piece Emeril by All-Clad set available for just under $130—their lowest price ever.
The thing to understand about a chef-branded offshoot line like this is that, no, this isn’t “regular” All-Clad (which is top-of-the-line, commercial-grade cookware), but a lighter-weight set that still passes professional chef muster. That is to say, it’s still pretty nice, but not commercial grade. The reviews are very favorable. And the price is pretty much unbeatable for what you get; this set includes 8″ and 10″ fry pans, an 11″ sautÃ© pan (the two largest of those three come with lids), 1.5 qt and 3 qt lidded pots, a steamer insert for the 3 qt pot, and a 6 qt stockpot. That’s a nice starter or replacement set if you’re in need. The pots are oven-safe to 500 degrees and it’s all dishwasher safe, too.
I’m a little sad I can’t justify more cookware right now, frankly.
