Pros:Even cooking, see through lid, attractive design

Cons:steel handles - quick to grab, hot to touch

The Bottom Line: If you love breakfast, buy this skillet. Everyone can eat while things are still hot.

After years of watching my mother make pancakes and chuck roasts in her electric skillet, I knew I needed to have my own. My husband, who believes 'Cusinart' translates to 'best' in all things zapped the Cuisinart Electric Skillet with the registry gun without second thought. We have now had it in our home for about six months.

We most often use it for: Pancakes, Hashbrowns, Fish, Bacon, French Toast, Mexican Hats

How an electric skillet differs from a stovetop skillet: An electric skillet plugs in to dispense quick heat to the entire cooking surface. This means food is cooked more quickly and more evenly than on the stove top.

My experience with this skillet:
Before making pancakes the first morning with my Cusinart Electric Skillet, I noticed it was oval shape. I am use to a rectangular skillet and thought the oval would mean less pancakes. However, the surface space is 12x15, which is relatively large for a skillet. I can comfortably fit up to six pancakes at a time. Which means I don't go hungry, while my husband eats and waits for me. The large surface also provides nice even cooking. All of the pancakes (or whatever you put in) are ready at the same time, rather than having one burnt, one ready, one undercooked.

A temperature dial plugs directly into the skillet and ranges from Warm to 450 degrees. The skillet heats up quickly with an indicator light that tells me the entire surface is the desired temperature to start my pancakes.

The surface has a non-stick interior, although I use a little spray, which makes it especially great for sticky food like pancake batter. I find the nonstick on this skillet works well and makes clean-up easy. I generally pour a little soap and water into the skillet after cooking and then after breakfast pour it out and rinse it. The skillet is also dishwasher safe.

The Cusinart Electric Skillet comes with a flat glass lid, instead of a dome. I find the dome is easier if you plan on cooking corned beef, chuck roast or other tall meals where you need the top to come up. However, for my use, the flat lid is exactly what I need. The glass cover makes it easy to check on food without heat escaping. The lid also has a small hole so steam can escape without the lid dancing, like it does on the stovetop.

The one thing that has been a pain with this skillet are the handles. The Cuisinart Electric Skillet has stainless steel handles on both sides of the oval surface and the top of the lid. Numerous times, I have not been thinking and burnt myself. I use this skillet so often that it became a real problem for me. My husband and I went down to the Home Depot and bought black foam pipe covers, which I cut and wrapped around each handle. It was the perfect solution because I no longer need a pot holder to cook and I can enjoy my skillet without the frustration of burns.
