Offering simple temperature control and powered by just plugging into an outlet, an electric skillet can be a versatile and efficient addition to your kitchen. Most electric skillets can be used for frying, sautéing, roasting, and keeping food warm for a crowd, but they can vary in size, price, added features, and how easy they are to clean—some are fully dishwasher-safe, while others require hand washing. To help you find the best electric skillet to add to your kitchen, we’ve pulled together four great options. When choosing, consider how much you tend to cook at a time, what your budget is, and how you’d prefer to clean it.
