    Emeril replaces pan woman used to fend off attack

    - AP


    Chef Emeril Lagasse says he felt so bad when he heard a woman lost one of his trademark pans while warding off home intruders that he's replacing the item. Lagasse is sending 70-year-old

    Ellen Basinski a whole new set of his signature cookware.


    She used her favorite pan to fight the intruders at her home west of Cleveland on Tuesday. Police then took it from her to be used as evidence.


    Basinski was on the phone with her husband when the teens pushed their way into her home.
    Her husband, Lorain County Judge David Basinski, overheard the scuffle, called 911 and raced home. Meanwhile, his wife says she grabbed the 5-quart saucepan and hit one teen, who was going through her purse.


    The four were arrested. The judge said his wife was upset that her pan was seized by police.

    That is great. But I think we need a waiting period on pans

    Emeril is a class act.

    ETA:

    I once saw a Waffle House cook break a would be robbers face with a little (hot!) cast iron skillet when the bad guy attempted to jump the counter while screaming that this was a stick up.

    It really did cave his face in and he dropped like a rock. Pretty impressive.

    She should have picked up a good ol' black iron skillet and gone upside their heads!

    Props to Emeril!

    And his cookware does rock. That 5qt saucepan would make a mean weapon.
