Rival CKRVSK11 11-Inch Square Electric Skillet The Rival Electric Skillet is a simple product as a very affordable price. The 11-inch square cooking surface may be a little small for some, but it really benefits when taking advantage of the skillets dual function as a buffet server. Simple controls make it easy to use and both the pan and the lid are dishwasher safe for straightforward cleaning. The Rival is a no-frills product, but a good choice for those on a budget. 4. Oster CKSTSKFM05 16-Inch Electric Skillet, Black and Stainless Steel Oster is well known for producing reliable and affordable kitchen appliances and the cheaply priced Electric Skillet provides more than enough to satisfy the budget-conscious. Like the George Foreman, the Oster provides a 16 x 12-inch cooking surface and a tempered glass lid. There is also a temperature probe for easy temperature setting and adjustment, and cool touch handles for buffet serving. A thin aluminum base makes it slightly difficult to maintain a steady heat, but this is only a minor drawback. 3. Presto 06852 16-Inch Electric Skillet with Glass Cover Next up in our list of electric skillet reviews is the excellent Presto 16-inch electric skillet. Presto is the leading name in skillets and this product really gets the job done in terms of both cooking and serving. A deluxe, non-stick surface – inside and out – ensures stick-free cooking and easy cleaning and the pan and lid are both dishwasher safe. Design is elegant and heat is even across the surface – a great choice. 2. De’Longhi BG45 Electric Skillet De’Longhi is well-known for making a range of healthy cooking machines for the kitchen, and the BG45 Electric Skillet carries on the brand’s reputation for producing quality goods. This 16 x 12-inch pan features a non-stick coating and an embedded heating element that helps keep the skillet heat balanced as you cook, although we’ve seen some rare reports of uneven heating. This elegantly designed product also comes with a tempered glass lid and adjustable steam vent for more precise cooking, and results are very consistent. 1. Presto 06857 16-inch Electric Foldaway Skillet Making a second entry in the list for Presto, the Electric Foldaway Skillet is everything that a skillet should be. Featuring Presto’s non-stick surface, a heavy-cast aluminum base and simple heating control, this machine is a must-have for any kitchen. Why this machine gets the nod over the BG45 though, is due to two design features: the built in spout for pouring liquids and fold down handles to detach the pan from the base for convenient under-counter storage. Also available in the Presto 07115 ceramic 12-inch version in addition to the 16-inch, this Presto is our best electric skillet available and the one most worthy of your dollars.
