Best Electric Skillets

 

Q. Why might I need an electric skillet?
A.
You might wonder why you’d need an electric skillet when you could just use a regular skillet on your stovetop. Well, electric skillets aren’t for everyone, but they can be extremely useful in a range of situations. Some people use electric skillets in dorm rooms or other accommodations without kitchen facilities, like in RVs. Other people use them for holiday cooking or preparing meals for large groups of people, when they need to use more pans than their stove can accommodate. Other people simply like the ease of use and the fact that they don’t have to turn on their stove and heat up their house.


Q. What size of electric skillet do I need?
A.
If you only ever cook one or two servings at a time, a compact 10- to 12-inch skillet should suffice. However, if you usually cook for larger groups or prefer to cook in batches, then you’d be better off with a large 14- to 16-inch model.

Q. Are electric skillets easy to clean?
A.
Some electric skillets are easier to clean than others. Some models have a detachable skillet part, which can be removed to either wash by hand or put in the dishwasher (assuming your chosen model is dishwasher-safe). You’ll also find models where you can’t detach the skillet part from the heating element and electric parts, so you can only carefully wipe out the skillet while the base unit is unplugged.
