An electric skillet or frying pan makes it easy to prepare roasts, casseroles, stews, fries and other delicious dishes. Presto offers many different models of electric skillets with an array of features that makes cooking a pleasure. Presto electric skillets are known for their versatility, durability, and affordable prices.
Electric skillets can last a long time if you know how to take care of them. Before using for the first time, season your Presto electric skillet by gently rubbing in some cooking oil on the nonstick surface, then warm the skillet. Wipe off excess oil with a paper towel. This will help protect and preserve the nonstick coating.
The skillet's heavy cast-aluminum or stainless steel base distributes heat evenly. This allows food to be heated up and cooked uniformly. The temperature control can be adjusted to stir-fry, simmer, cook, bake or roast food. You can also use the skillet to keep your food hot.
Presto skillets come in all sizes and styles. There are 11-inch electric skillets, 16-inch skillets, stainless steel skillets, high sided skillets, and many more. The warp-resistant base heats up fast and you can set the temperature from 180 to 480 Fahrenheit. Stay-cool handles make it easy to carry the skillet. The non-stick surface makes the skillet perfect for no-fat or low-fat cooking.
Clean up is hassle-free because the nonstick surface prevents food from sticking to the skillet. Once the temperature control unit is removed, the pan can be immersed in water and hand washed. It is also dishwasher safe.
Pancakes, French toast and grilled sandwiches are easy to prepare on the skillet. You can also prepare a casserole, fried chicken, stew or roast. A tempered glass cover lets you check on your food while it is cooking.
If you want a small electric skillet, the Presto 06620 11-inch electric skillet is what you are looking for. Perfect for small families or for cooking smaller meals, this skillet has a domed cover and non-stick cooking surface for cooking, frying and stewing.

You can cook a meal for a large number of people with the 16-inch skillet. The tempered glass cover of the Presto 06852 electric skillet lets you look at how well your food is cooking.
