  • You can cook ANYTHING in it! I love mine!

  • Yep, pretty much anything! I mainly use ours to do fried chicken like you mentioned, but I've done all sorts of things in ours. It was especially useful last month when our Gas stove went out and I had nothing to cook on!

  • Electric skillets are good for almost anything you'd cook on the stove top...and even better than the stove for some things, because (especially if it's a good one!) it is evenly heated. It's perfect for braising...There is a post on my blog for Swiss Steak that we make in my mom's electric skillet if you want an example:

  • We had one when I was a kid. But the only thing I ever remember my mom cooking in it was stroganoff, lol. I'm sure she used it for other stuff but that's what I remember. I wish I had one but we don't have room for more small appliances.
