I adore my electric skillet! It heats up quickly and evenly so I don't have to wait forever or worry about burning the one side while waiting for the other side to cook. I also like that the base won't heat up without the skillet potion on it. It makes me feel safer just on the off chance that I accidentally leave it on when I take the skillet part off to wash it. It is non-stick and they meant it. I just barely have to wipe it off with a sponge to clean it. Pancakes don't even stick to it if I forget to spray Pam onto the skillet before pouring in the batter. It has degree settings so I can cook basically anything in it and have the proper temperature. I also love that the top detaches to become a pan that I can just stick in the oven. It aves me from having to store yet another item. It's pretty sturdy too. It gets pushed around some in my cabinet but I have never seen any evidence of it, not even a scratch. If you're looking for a new skillet I would definitely suggest this one as an option!
