We have had our Emirilware for about 3 years. Recently we have observed them heating unevenly in the bottom. Then, today, we barely averted a disaster. My husband was boiling water on the stove on medium heat. Once the water started to simmer, he was moving the pot over to the sink when the bottom half of the pot turned to liquid. As he extended the pot to the sink so the liquid would fall into the sink, the molten liquid hit the porcelain on the sink. As a result of the heat of the melted metal, our sink was shattered and there are holes in the counter top.We will have to replace our sink, our counter top and the tile on the floor. The sink is shattered, the counter top had a hole burned into it, and the tile was burned from the molten metal. My husband's shoes were burned, and we will have to replace the cookware.
