Deep Dutch Skillet
Product Model: SK500
Would you like to cook fry chicken without grease splattering all over the stove top and yourself?
Are you one of those cooks that likes to make extra servings of stew to freeze for later meals?
Tired of scraping the pots and pans after cooking greasy or sticky meals?
If you said yes to any of those then the perfect product you need in your kitchen is the Deep Dutch Skillet.
I adore my skillet. In the winter months there is usually something going on inside of it. From fry chicken to big beef stews. Once upon a time I use a plain pan for frying chicken and ended up with more grease on the outside then on the inside. A friend made a remark about why I wasn't using my electric skillet for frying and had to smack my head against the stove...duh, the perfect object for frying.
It fits perfectly on my countertop. I do not worry about it heating up the counter-top. The feet of the skillet rises the bottom from the counter. (I used to own an older model that had left burn marks on my old countertop..so this is a large plus)
The lid is heat resistant. I still use pot holders for safety sakes, but even if I didn't, I wouldn't worry about burning my fingers. My husband uses this product without pot holders, but he is more braver then I am.
The skillet is easy to use. You stick the long prong into the opening on the side, and plug (3-way prong) into the wall. Turn it to the correct temperature and your on your way to cooking a great meal. On the directional (temp.) gauge, is easy understandable numbers of degree. 200, 300 and so on.
One hint: to heat skillet, I turn it to 300 for three minutes before cooking, then turn to correct temp need for cooking meal.
Washing it is a snap. You can plunge in hot sudsy water, make sure you dry it completely before next use. (because of opening where long prong goes)
Along with the purchase I also received simple easy recipe booklet. I have used one recipe out of the booklet and it was correctly done, I plan to try another one soon. In the booklet is also directions on how much cooking time and temperature should be used with different meats and other meals. Follow along with these, they are accurate.
Black and Decker makes great kitchen products, and their deep dutch skillet is one of my favorites.
