Ellen Basinski is getting her favorite sauce pan and then some.

The 70-year-old wife of an Ohio judge used her pan to fight off four teens who had invaded her home.

But Basinski was upset when the police took her pan as evidence.

Chef Emeril Lagasse says he feels for the woman.

He's sending Basinski a set of his signature cookware to replace the pan she used as a weapon.
