Family Sized Skillet
Electric skillets may appear to all be relatively the same at first glance, but a closer inspection of any model will allow you to highlight the best and worst points of that particular skillet. Some may provide a larger cooking surface than others, but perhaps they are a bit underpowered and take too long to cook many dishes. Still others will have other inconveniences that may make them a bit of a pain to use. With the Dash DRG214RD Family Size Electric Skillet, you get a great all-around skillet that seems to be loaded with positives while containing almost none of the negatives that you will find with many other models.
One of the biggest problems with many models is that they provide too small of a cooking surface. You won't have this problem here, though. This family-sized pan is perfect for cooking and entertaining guests, letting you cook up healthy portions of food for multiple people. The 14" x 14" x 2.5" cooking dimensions provide you with a cooking capacity of up to 20 cups, allowing you to feed up to 6 people. This also makes this skillet good for stews, sauces, roasts and more, allowing you to really up your repertoire of dishes that are quick and easy to make. Those who like hearty portions of food will absolutely love this skillet.
Quick and Even Heating
A common issue with many electric skillets is that they often take too long to heat up to the desired temperature, but thankfully that is one negative that is missing from this model. The heating element of this skillet allows the pan to heat up very quickly to the desired temperature, all while providing an evenly heated surface that won't vary in temperature. This means that all of your dishes will be cooked evenly while also preventing the possibility of burning parts of the food while leaving other parts undercooked. This also gives you plenty of options for cooking methods, so whether you want to bale, fry, sautee, or even grill, you'll find that this skillet will be up to the task.

Larger skillets can be great for cooking large quantities of food, but they tend to be bulky and heavy, which greatly impacts their portability. Not that everyone needs their skillet to be truly portable, of course, but at times when it is necessary to take a skillet somewhere for cooking, it would be nice to have one that can be easily carried without too much trouble. That's why a smaller skillet like the Nesco ES-08 Electric Skillet can be a huge help for those who often take a skillet with them for certain events, all while still being quite suitable for use at home.
The smaller dimensions of this skillet, featuring an 8" x 8" cooking surface, make it small enough to be portable, yet still large enough to be an excellent choice for a family of 3-4 people. With this model, you can easily prepare simple meat or vegetarian dishes with a convenient and compact frying pan, while also having enough features to make the use of the device simple enough for anyone to use. The controls are simple and easily understandable, and this skillet is also easy to clean, with the lid able to be cleaned in the dishwasher, so you won't have to spend an unseemly amount of time washing it by hand. Simply put, this skillet provides a ton of convenience in a relatively small package.
Simple and Convenient
This is a lower-powered skillet than all of the others on this list, using a total of 800 W, which can be handy for those who want to save a bit on their electricity bill. This has both its positives and negatives, of course, and we feel we should mention the latter here first. Being lower powered, it can take a while for this skillet to heat up to its cooking temperature, and it also takes a long time to cool down once it is turned off. Having said that, you'll find that once it gets heated up, it maintains a precise temperature that allows you to cook your food exactly how you want. The temperature control allows you to achieve these precise cooking results with an easy-to-read dial.
The device is also equipped with a die-cast aluminum tray, a durable tempered glass lid, and heat-resistant and non-heating handles. The tray provides a non-stick surface that not only gives you a completely uniform cooking experience all across it, but also aids in cleaning. The lid helps lock in the heat as well as moisture, and ensures that your dishes are cooked to perfection. Although the model featured here has smaller dimensions, there is also a larger option available for those who need more cooking capacity. As it stands, though, anyone with more modest requirements for the amount of food they need to cook will find this model to be a great option.

A skillet (basically, a large frying pan) is a usual kitchen appliance that millions of people can't do without when cooking delicious dishes. Most skillets are stovetop but the technology does not stand still - it is developing every year and so electric skillets are now getting more and more widespread. Its advantages are clear - no gas supply is required in your house and you can cook in it and serve a dish right in a skillet. Let alone the situation when you move to your cottage for a couple of weeks and need a frying pan - an electric skillet is indispensable in this case. You can cook a lot of dishes in an electric fry pan: from a simple omelet to a shrimp stew and from French fries to an appetizing turkey. Any electric skillet goes with a lid which speeds up the cooking and keeps your kitchen clean.
If you like grilling, pay attention to our review of the best electric griddles - these compact appliances is a great electric alternative to conventional outdoor grills.
What Features to Compare
If you think a choice of the best electric skillet is easy, you are totally wrong. There are so many of them in any large store but still people get confused and very often get really poor appliances. That is why we have decided to make our electric skillet review as simple for a common buyer as possible, and yet, provide as much necessary information as you need to make the best pick.
First of all, you are buying an electric fry pan for cooking and if you are not an experienced wife or husband, you might not even put your finger on what exactly you can cook with the help of this appliance. Therefore, begin with Cooking Options - find out what kind of food you can make in an electric skillet. Of course, an electric frying pan is big enough to cook nearly anything - from your favorite French fries to a beef stew with potatoes. However, some electric fry pans are designed to accommodate the whole turkey, for example. Also, skillets are deeper than usual frying pans which means you can have pleasure baking: make pies, biscuits, and a lot of other stuff. Next, any electric skillet is perfect for cooking stew - you can make a stew and serve it right in a pan, without a need of another dish - most skillets are designed with a removable thermostat. Also, it is easy to roast in a deep frying pan and you can sometimes roast a whole turkey for Thanksgiving Day! No need to say, the cooking abilities heavily depend on temperature every electric skillet can provide. Most of them support a temperature from 200 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (not Celsius - be attentive!). You need at least 375 degrees for cooking poultry, beef, pork, or veal. 300 degrees are enough for frying sausages or eggs whereas baking requires 300-400 degrees. Also, some electric frying pans have a Warm mode which is convenient if you need to keep a dish warm for some time before serving it.
Next feature you need to consider is the Cooking Surface of an electric skillet. Honestly, you do not need to know how much a whole frying pan weighs but what you truly need is the dimension of the frying pan. They are usually square, round, rectangular, or oval. The shape is usually important for cooking: a rectangular one is the most suitable for a turkey, fish, or a hen, for example. But if you are buying an electric skillet for baking - a square form will be the most convenient. Next, consider the capacity of the pan - it depends on the depth. 3-inch deep skillet will not be suitable for roasting a hen or turkey, so you need a deeper one (at least 5 inches). Naturally, if you have a big family, a small skillet will not be enough, so choose a big one.
Also, pay attention to the Material a frying pan is made from. Most skillets are made of aluminum or aluminum alloys and weigh around 4.5 pounds. However, stainless steel pans are more durable. All electric fry pans have a special non-stick coating which requires particular care since if it gets damaged, you might need to buy a new skillet. However, it is better to buy a pan with a reliable coating than save up some money and then throw a skillet into a trashcan.
Finally, make sure to choose a skillet with a decent level of Convenience. The best electric skillets boast a transparent tempered-glass lid through which you can see what is going on and control the cooking. Also, good lids have a small vent hole through which excessive steam goes out. Some frying pans also boast a special spout that facilitates pouring liquids (it is particularly important to remove oil, for example). And do not forget to check if a frying pan is dishwasher-safe since if it is - the cleaning will be just a piece of cake.
