Have you tried ContourPlot?

ContourPlot[Sin[x y],{x,-Pi,Pi},{y,-Pi,Pi},PlotPoints->50];

For specific contours, use the Contours option. Here I am looking for
contours of sin(x*y)=0 or 0.5

ContourPlot[Sin[x y], {x, -Pi, Pi}, {y, -Pi, Pi}, PlotPoints -> 50,
ContourShading -> False, Contours -> {0, .5}];
