Emerilware vs Cuisinart stainless cookware - opinions please
Emeril Stainless or Cuisinart Classic Stainless??
Or something else????
I thought I had it narrowed down. I was going to get the Emerilware (set of 10 pcs. about $150 after all discounts applied). Even though I am not real interested in the 2 frypans (in either set- I would use non-stick more often) or the stock pot(I have one already), I am mostly looking at the sauce pans and saute pans. Emeril has 2 sauce, but one is actually a "casserole" and doesn't even have a long handle. Cuisinart has 2 but the overall quality didn't seem as good but was slightly cheaper. I would probably want 3 saucepans. I thought I could always buy some openstock, but where?? I bought the Emeril set last night but I haven't quite decided if I am going to keep it.
If I just bought open stock and got the sauce pans that I really need what store would I go to? I do not want high end, but it doesn't look like BedBathBeyond, Linens n things or Macys carries too much of a variety of openstock pieces.
I agree with the idea of don't buy the whole set buy pieces - but can you get emeril in open stock? I looked a little online but didn't really see anything.
Please give me your opinions, everyone always is so helpful and I really don't know much about this cookware stuff ...but I'm learning!
