About the Designer
Inspired by his mother Hilda to become a professional chef, Emeril first worked at a Portuguese bakery where he mastered the art of bread and pastry making. After high school, he turned down a full music scholarship to pursue his love of cooking. He earned an undergraduate degree and honorary doctorate from the legendary Johnson and Wales University. Then traveled to Paris and Lyon to study the classic art of French cuisine. Returning to the States, Emeril polished his skills in fine restaurants in New York, Boston and Philadelphia. When the Big Easy called, Emeril answered by becoming executive chef at the famous Commander's Palace. He's been treating us to his talents ever since these days, in restaurants of his own making. Emeril is the chef-proprietor of 10 restaurants, including three in New Orleans, two in Las Vegas, two in Orlando, one in Atlanta and one in Miami. Emeril has just opened his tenth restaurant in June 2007, Emeril's Gulf Coast Fish House, in Gulfport, Mississippi. Also an established cookbook author, Chef Emeril Lagasse has authored five books exceeding two million in sales.

Excellent Fry Pan
Kenneth from Pittsburgh, PA – Verified Buyer
Always wanted a cast iron fry pan but thought they were too expensive. Great pan for the money! Have used many times already. Instructions advise to season with pi; to maintain season on pan which I have been doing and it does remain non stick!
Howard from new york, NY – Verified Buyer
This pan weighs a ton so don't expect to flip pancakes in it. But it's solid, heats evenly, has high sides to reduce splatter and while somewhat abrasive the surface is smooth enough for easy cleaning.
Great fry pan!!
DeWanda from San Tan Valley, AZ – Verified Buyer
This cast iron fry pan makes the best southern cornbread ever!!! I got it with my reward points!! Perfect size and very high quality cast iron. Wish I'd bought a second one. Got here in only a couple days!
Donna from Dallas, TX – Verified Buyer
I purchased the 10 in fry pan. Itis big enough to prepare a large dish or cornbread. My food did not stick. Clean-up was quick and easy. My food did not stick or taste funny. I highly recommend product. I purchased 2.
Kenyatta from New York, NY – Verified Buyer
No one should be with at least one of these pans. I got two and make everything in it, fish, cornbread, fried chicken, pan cakes. This is a big big must have, please trust me.
Love this skillet
Lydia from SACRAMENTO, CA – Verified Buyer
I love the weight and extra handle to pick it up with. Everything cooks great in it, especially my pineapple upside down cake. Yummy!
Very good value
Lil from Henderson, NV – Verified Buyer– Top 1000 Reviewer
This preseasoned cast iron skillet is all that I expected: I seasoned it before first use because even though it said it was pre seasoned it didn't appear to be. It cleans up easily and is just the right size for most recipes. Would recommend buying.
ANDREA Chicago il
Andrea from Chicago, IL – Verified Buyer
It's preseason and had instructions on how to seal it, once I did that it works perfectly.
Good Omelette Maker
ekch2002 from Portland Oregon – Verified Buyer– Top 1000 Reviewer
Great pan for Omelette because of the slanted sides . Would be a great first piece of cast iron for beginners due to its comfortable size and the pre-seasoning. However, it is not dishwasher safe.
Victor from New York, NY – Verified Buyer
Great buy. Cooks really well. Doesn't burn. Need to care for it but it serves you well.
