ALL RESULT IN DELICIOUS MEALS MADE EASY - The Tagine, One Pot and Cast Iron Smoker Debut
CHICAGO, March 12, 2006 – As consumers look beyond the basics in the kitchen to create more distinctive and challenging meals, Emerilware now offers three specialized cookware pieces that offer the style and quality for which Emerilware is known.
The new Tagine, Cast Iron 4-in-1 Smoker and One Pot each deliver meals with intense flavors with their specific capabilities, and they join a complete line of successful cookware from Chef Emeril Lagasse and All-Clad.
“I’m delighted that my collection with All-Clad now includes these types of specialized cookware,” says Lagasse. “The Tagine has the functionality to make both classic and ethnic meals the whole family will love, and the 4-in-1 Smoker’s versatility as a smoker, roaster, grill, and broiler pan is great for both mid-week meals and weekend entertaining. The One Pot has patented “steam surround” technology that can help prepare healthy meals up to 25% faster than a conventional sauté pan.”
The new Emerilware Tagine adds a twist to this traditional form of Moroccan cooking, which is becoming so popular. A conical terracotta cover shaped so that moisture infuses the food with intense flavor and tender texture is paired with a hard enamel aluminum pan, which has a nonstick interior for easy clean up. Unlike most tagines on the market today, the Emerilware Tagine has riveted stainless steel handles to make it easy and safe to cook with as well as to serve from. Recipes developed exclusively for the Tagine by Emeril himself are also included to help home cooks create delicious courses that will impress the palate as well as the eye. Available April 1, it will retail for $99.99.
With Emerilware’s new 4-in-1 Smoker, all of the juicy flavors of wood smoking are now available indoors as the stovetop is transformed into a wood smoker. Smoke cooking retains moisture so that food is succulent and tender, and it is a healthy way to infuse flavor without the use of fats, salts or oils. There’s no need to worry about smoke filling the kitchen – the only thing the Cast Iron Smoker creates is intensely smoke-flavored, healthy meals. The cast iron body and lid will not warp or distort under the intense heat needed for smoking. It also can be used as a grill – the reversible lid is ideal for char-grilling vegetables and meats – as well as a roaster and broiler pan. The Smoker comes with an enamel drip tray and rack, four flavors of Cameron’s wood chips and Emeril’s recipe pack. Available April 1, it will retail for $99.99.
Making real meals real simple, Emeril’s innovative Stainless Steel One Pot allows a family to enjoy wholesome, weekend-style dinners any day of the week. The One Pot’s patented seal-tight lid, which wraps food in gentle pressurized steam, cooks in the hearty flavors, while not cooking out nutrients. This “steamsurround” technology also means food can be prepared 25 percent faster than conventional stovetop cooking. The lid can be opened safely at any time to check on cooking, add spices or taste test dishes. The One Pot also comes with a steamer insert for steaming fish and vegetables. Its nonstick cooking surface ensures quick clean up. Available April 1, it will retail for $249.99.
Like all of the pieces in the Emerilware line, Emeril worked closely with All-Clad in developing the shape and features of the collection. Handles of cast stainless steel, securely fastened to the cookware with industrial-strength stainless steel rivets, have been carefully researched with Emeril to be ergonomically designed for maximum comfort and balance.
Available in April at fine specialty and department stores nationwide, the Tagine, 4-in-1 Cast Iron Smoker and One Pot bring innovation to every cook who wants to create more unique dishes in the kitchen.
