I had no idea that this type of electric skillet was so popular, however, I can sure understand why. It has enough room in it to make a generous soup or stew, or to brown and fry and roast almost any size of meat cut. It can be used to roast or bake, stew or fry. Seriously, one of the most versatile cooking devices available.
The temperature gauge on the control that provides it's power is accurate and has a very wide range of temps.
If the non-stick version is purchased, it's also very easy to clean and requires almost no maintenance.
For the person with a tiny kitchen and a large selection of recipes, it's the one-pan-does-all appliance!
