I live in an older mobile home which has old appliances such as an air conditioner that gave up the ghost, then the gas stove decided to give it up. Rather than mess with repairing the gas stove, I decided to go electric. First I bought a single electric unit which was used for a while until I bought a double unit. The pots and pans where too tipsy with that unit, so it finally hit me that I needed an electric skillet that would do all I needed to do. The 16" Presto electric skillet with a glass cover is a great unit. It fried some great chicken and then allowed me to make perfect milk gravy. The next meal was a roast with vegetables, which also produced a good gravy that was made a great stew. I have also fixed perfect pancakes with over easy eggs that don't stick and break open. There is much more that I haven't used the unit for, but I am sure it will produce good food. I am very happy with my new electric skillet. Lew.
