When it comes to great and affordable stainless steel cookware, you really should take a look at the Emeril Cookware Pro-Clad Stainless Steel Cookware collection.
Usually, we stay away from the chef-branded type of cookware sets – mainly because, it tends to cost more JUST for that ‘signature’, and that higher price takes the cookware out of the affordable category for many of us.
Thankfully, that’s not true when it comes to All-Clad Emeril cookware. The Emeril Cookware Pro-Clad Stainless Steel Cookware has been crafted thanks to the partnership between Emeril Lagasse, a celeb chef and All-Clad.
One of the striking things that most people talk about is the price. The price of the Pro-Clad is much less than what All-Clad sets are priced at.
So what is it that makes the Pro Clad so well priced? Is it better than All Clad cookware? Let’s find out in this Emeril Pro-Cald review.

What’s in the box?
For starters, the cookware set includes a 12 piece cookware set that includes everything you will need from fry pans, sauce pans to even a Dutch oven and steamer insert.
The splatter screen is a nice bonus piece that most stainless steel cookware sets do not have.
The versatile collection of all the cookware pieces allows you to cook practically everything with ease.
Worth the Money?
All in all, YES, this 12-piece Emeril cookware set is a great value. VERY high-quality cookware that should last you a long time.
The range of pots and pans should can be used for a range of purposes and the Dutch oven is the key highlight of the set. It’s one of the more unique additions that you will not find in other cookware sets.
Here is a look at why this stainless steel cookware is a great choice.
1. What’s It Made Of?
The cookware set is made up of tri-ply stainless steel which has three different layers that are core bonded.
The inner core is made up of aluminum and it allows even heat distribution.
You will find all of the pots and pans are made up of the same material and all of them heat up quit evenly.
If you have not experienced cooking with even heat before, you will not want to move back once you’ve used the Pro-Clad cookware set.
The mirror polished surface looks amazing and the inner surface of the pots and pans have a brushed finish to ensure food does not slip while cooking. The handles are made up of stainless steel and they tend to be sturdy and comfortable.
It’s dishwasher safe! Always a “must” in our criteria for the BEST stainless steel cookware.
The handles do not heat up when cooking thanks to the design so you can cook comfortably without difficulties. We LOVE cool handles on our stainless steel pots and pans!
The only thing I, personally, wished this set had was a 12″ skillet. Easy enough to add, but would be nice if the set came with it.
Also, this cookware IS oven safe.
4. Emeril Pro-Clad vs All-Clad
If you compare the Pro-Clad set to the existing All-Clad cookware sets that already exist, you will notice that there’s a huge price difference and the Pro-Clad is quite cheaper.
Does this mean it’s not as good as the All-Clad cookware sets?
The Pro-Clad is cheaper due to the country of origin of the products. The Pro-Clad set is manufactured in China which leads to low manufacturing costs due to cheap labor costs and that’s the only difference when it comes to quality.
Considering the Pro-Clad is good enough for a celebrity chef like Emeril Lagasse, you too will love the set!
