One of the must have appliances in your kitchen is the multi-purpose Presto 06852 16 Inch Electric Skillet with Glass Cover. This glass covered electric skillet is one of the better electric skillets on the market. It is an extremely versatile piece of equipment and can be used for roasting, griddling, baking, braising and much more. This jumbo sized skillet is easy to use, clean and maintain.

It is especially great for when you want to serve food buffet style right from the skillet as it can keep food warm for as long as you want. You will find that is very easy to cook food in the skillet with virtually no sticking as it is made with heavy-cast aluminum with a non-stick surface that is vastly superior to the Teflon that you would find on other, cheaper electric skillets.
