I just heard David say that Emeril will be coming to QVC soon. I wondered what was going on with the Southern Channel, all his products were clearing out and no new products. Now we know.
Good for him. I like his products but not QVC S&H!
I agree also--Good for him! NOW if only QVC can make a better deal with UPS and their shipping rates that would make all of us a lot happier!!
I heard it too! I thought he hadn't been on in awhile because of his cooking show on the Hallmark channel. (I could be wrong about the station) I like him on the Southern Channel because they actually cook! I hope when he come's over here his food is not just sitting in the products he's trying to sell with everyone oohing and aweing over it. I have to say I'm disappointed because they always have flex pay and free shipping with a lot of his products and doubt we will see that here. And that means I won't be buying can't afford it. Sad I really like his products!
He was on the Q for many years before landing at HSN........... I agree that HSN offers much better flex pays, and such a better S&H deal.........wish the Q would wake up and offer the same type deals to their customers...........

While I like Emeril, QVC's shipping charges are through the roof! Most times I try to find the item from another source. I've seen the time where the item may cost a tad more, but when adding the shipping in, I still save money over the Q.
I love Emeril, too and can't to see him on the Q. A couple weeks ago HSN was having a kitchen clearance and I picked up 2 of his 5 pc bakeware sets for $20 each. Total shipping was ~$5.00 and they were both sent in the same box. Imagine that. I hope they bring his steakburgers. They're the best burgers I've ever had.
Wow...he's been on HSN for quite awhile. Wonder why he's moving on...
Oh gag if he is on with David.

I wonder if this means Martha is soon to follow? Martha owns Emeril, I assume she owns the HSN stuff, too.

He said "Lagass".....he didn't even pronounce his name correctly. I noticed it right away. I guess Emeril has severed his relationship with HSN since he has only been with them? Can you be on both?
That's a shame. I've purchased several of Emeril's items from the other network, mainly because of the easy pays and low shipping. I think the excessive shipping prices will encourage me to find less expensive venues.
Bob B always said Lagass--but I don't remember Emeril pronouncing it that way. . .
I heard David say that also about Emeril coming to Q but the format is so different than the southern channel that he might get his own show. The other channel gives them a whole hour or more and I agree with the other posters that they do really cook. We'll see!
Before Emeril become an HSN vendor, he was on Q. It's unusual for a vendor to return. Interesting.
I like Emeril. I bought a couple of his pans from the other channel and they have held up well. Wonder if Todd English will move over to?
I went to one of his book signings.
I do not remember Emeril on QVC. He was on ShopatHome before it went bankrupt (and started selling knives and coins infomercial style). T/hat is where he debuted his cookware, knives, etc.
As far as his last name is concerned, it is my understanding that "Lagass" is the correct pronunciation; however, when he began cooking in New Orleans and subsequently became famous, people mispronounced. As a result, he began pronouncing the "e" (most likely to avoid having to continually correct people which gets annoying after awhile).
If he is guaranteed we won't be getting GREAT FREE s/h deals and more like HSN!!!!!!!
I have gifted a set of his ha enamelware which they have loved. Other than this I don't have any other pieces of his cookware or items.
And Todd English green pans - people I know have JUNKED them! Then again, after buying my caphalon set I'm hooked!!!
Good for Emeril always enjoyed his cooking shows!
I hope they do show him cooking like he has done for years on the Southern Channel. I have noticed that the individual product demos on Q are getting longer like the Southern Channel, so I am hoping they will have live cooking. As far as s & h, the Q is so high and if they think they are fooling us when they raise the price and say s & h included they are kidding themselves.
I am not in the market for cookware, but for those who are,
Emeril's pans are sold at Sam's Club, you may want to compare prices.

I loved watching him on the southern channel also.
I have a good bit of his cookware and I love it.
We used to eat at Commander's Palace long before he was ever on TV or was famous. He worked the dining room, saying hello to so many people and sincerely asking how their meal was and listening! He knows and loves food--no matter how his tv persona may come off at times. He was always happy and enthusiastic and very concerned that the patrons had a good meal and a good time. Just how you would imagine a great New Orleans restaurant experience to be! Saw him at a book signing too a couple of years ago.
I can't remember the last time I heard about someone moving from HSN to QVC. Usually it's the other way around.
