Have had a one quart Emeril brand pot for less than a year purchased at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Performed beautifully for awhile. Did not overheat the pot; it heats up VERY quickly and continues to hold heat for a long time, even off the flame. Just noticed that the bottom covering of the I would guess aluminum core is separating, making the pot unusable. Don't want molten aluminum dripping on my stove or body. Is this a common complaint. What do the manufacturer's suggest, beyond using a lower temp flame -- and what is THAT exactly?A very expensive piece of cookware is unusable after less than a year.
