We have the Wolfgang Puck Bistro set...probably similar to Emril. IT is great...You only need to have the stove on Med-high heat to get it really hot in the pan. Then, make sure you add a nice little layer of EVOO before you cook and clean up is pretty easy.
My directions say to let the pan heat up first, then add the oil and let that heat and then add the food...uh, OK!??
Oh, by the way, never cook anything in it and tell people here that you did...you'll never hear the end of it!!
