An electric skillet can do whatever a stove-top skillet can do and more, such as cook eggs and pancakes, fry potatoes, and keep up with all of your skillet needs. It cooks food evenly across a flat surface and has high sides for things like vegetables, chicken breasts, and melted cheese sandwiches. Electric skillets come with covers to prevent oil, sauces, and juices from splattering. Presto has been around since 1905 and makes quality kitchen appliances, including highly rated electric skillets. The company sells 11” and 16” models. Most have glass covers, though a couple come with plastic covers that resist heat but don’t allow you to look inside without removing it. The heating component in all Presto electric skillets is detachable so that you can wash the unit without damaging it.
