Paula Deen's culinary career began in June 1989 out of her kitchen with the Bag Lady, a home-based lunch delivery service in Savannah. The bag lady was extremely successful and soon outgrew her kitchen. On January 8th, 1996 she opened her own restaurant, The Lady & Sons, in downtown Savannah. In 1999, USA today named the Lady & Son's the "International Meal of the Year". In 1997, Deen published her first cook book, The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook. As luck would have it, a major publishing company house picked it up when one of their literary agents walked into the restaurant to escape a rainstorm. Shortly after that, Deen's cookware was appearing on QVC. In the next few years Paula published many more cookbooks. "Paula's Home Cooking" premiered on the TV Food Network on November 16th, 2002. The program features Deen doing what she does best-being herself, teaching people how to bring joy into their kitchens and homes. With Deen it is about teaching viewers to bring out the best in their families and creating happy memories no matter what the budget is. In Fall 2006 Deen launched her second program, "Paula's Party", on the Food Network. She invites guests to participate in her cooking classes. Viewers get an inside look at what makes Deen so special- her clever wit, jovial laugh and sheer genius at making people feel good.

Takes too long to heat food and esp water but certainly doesn't burn anything.
Won't work on smooth top stove

This is an awesome pan, but won't work on smooth top stoves. Took an hour to boil water on my stove. Had to sell it to my sister-in-law. After research must be due to the copper bottom. Would highly recommend this pan to anyone other than flat top stove owners.
Takes forever to boil water on smooth top stove.

This is a BEAUTIFUL pot, I absolutely love it... BUT it has taken over an hour to boil water for pasta. I think I'm going to have to either return it (if they will accept it back) or sell it to someone else that doesn't have a smooth top stove. I'm really bummed!

i love the copper bottom. It cooks evenly and quickly. Unfortunately, the stainless steel interior gets dull and blotchy ater just a couple of uses.
Paula's cookware is first rate!

I bought this pot on a recommendation from a friend that Paula Deen cookware is high quality, and that is the truth. I love the weight and the copper bottom. I will be using this pot on a regular basis.
