Nice size Not a bad price (with 20% off coupon) this is a nice skillet. We had a recent haul of Morel Mushrooms this spring and I spent several days with this skillet. The size made it easy to cook a lot at a time. The head was acceptable but I did have to set it all the way to high to maintain a good browning temperature. I always assume 350° to fry just about anything but any below high, it seemed to have a hard time keeping the shrooms bubbling. I thought the bottom got a little hot after long time use. I recommend putting something under it if you plan on leaving it on for more than hour. I have Formica counter tops so I worry about them when high heat is involved. It cleans up easily, being able to submerge the whole thing is a real plus. Being able to cook larger quantities is too. I con't have a fry pan that will hold more than 3 pork chops. this will hold at least 4. May 23, 2013
Great Product Great product, large enough to do a full meal or what ever you want. Had a smaller one before this one and I prefer this one for its size. Heats up quickly and evenly. There is a little vent hole in the glass cover to release the pressure. By the way love the Glass cover, did not have this with the last one. I love to see what I am cooking and how it is going without removing the cover. All of my pots and pans now have glass covers. This was just a nice added touch to this electric skillet.

Wouldn't recommend .The skillet doesn't heat up evenly.I use the or a skillet at least 3-4 times a week.Found it hard to cook a whole skillet full because of the uneven heat.I also found that the temp.setting has to be turned up to the 400degs setting to get a good heat esp.when the skillet is full.After reviewing the reviews on the cuisinart skillet that will be my next purchase.There was 1 plus and that is it cleaned up easily.

Great purchase This skillet heats evenly and I love that I can immerse it completely in water to clean it. February 29, 2012
