Have had many electric skillets and NONE compare to this one. It is very stable, cooks to temp, and stores everything within itself thanks to the lid locks being on both sides. I have stored the skillet on its side right on my cabinet top to have it ready for daily meals. Does everything a skillet or griddle can do and does it well.
This skillet is great. We've had several over the years, and this one is definetly the best one yet. There are no negatives about this product. Buy one and you won't regret it.
Already recommending to friends and family.
After having the last electric skillet for at least 30 years, we are very pleased with our new one. The other product reviews were extremely helpful when making our decision to purchase the Hamilton Beach. Our thanks to all who took the time to write a review.
I bought the Hamilton Beach skillet for cooking on my camping trips. It works great! Quick heat up, no stick at all. It cooks five pounds of hash browns in no time. One and one half dozen scrambled eggs are a breeze. Very recommended...............Mike................
I was looking for something to save on electricity and also something to cook on in the case of power outages to use with my generator. I viewed many electric skillets and the Hamilton beach seemed to be my best choice. Entire meals can be prepared with this skillet at any time. Now I won't be left in a snow storm, no power no way to prepare a meal.
This product is wonderful. I'm not big on cooking. I've tried making roasts before and it never worked out for me. I've made 2 roasts since getting this and they were so moist and juice I couldn't believe I did it. I love how the lid locks on and how you can store the lid on the skillet. I love how you can use the built in pour spout to get rid of any excess water. So easy to use. The temp dial is also nice to have. You know exactly what temp your skillet is at. Totally user friendly!
Nice large cooking area. I like the locking lid. Cleans easily. Heats evenly.
This skillet is very heavy and durable (meaning not CHEAP). Cooks evenly and cleans up great! Has rubber on bottom of legs so it does not slide on the counter top while cooking. Definitely recommend this skillet.
My sister bought this for me and it's the Best small appliance that I have. I use it a lot for Church or Work gatherings. It holds the temperatue that I set it on really well. It heats up extremely quick. BUT....the best thing is this: I cook a lot of things ahead of time in the oven in one of the Extra Large Aluminum Foil Pans (the disposable kind.....same Oblong Shape as the Skillet. NOT the Oval ones)....and it fits PERFECTLY in the Electric Skillet. Therefore, I don't have to transfer the food into the skillet to keep it hot....I set the Aluminum pan in the skillet and turn it on WARM...and it keeps the entire thing heated till I turn it off. Then there's NO MESS to clean up....just throw away the Foil Pan!! Gotta love that!!!
I purchased this skillet to fry chicken and the first thing I did was pancakes and eggs, this worked out then I tried to fry green tomatoes and had to finish them in a skillet on the stove then I tried to heat up my oil for chicken and it only got up to 320 not even close to 400 so I fried it in a skillet on the stove. Then I retuned it you just can't beat cast iron!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just love it, love it, love it! I use it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; it is perfect for me to make a large quantity of fried rice. Clean up is so easy! The only adjustment I had to make was realizing that it works more like an oven where it cycles the temperature (frying foods with a lot of oil is a little more tricky, having to adjust the temp).
I used this skillet for the 1st time the other night and it far outdid the last electric skillet that I owned. I love it!
I love my Hamilton Beach Electric Skillet. Lots of room for frying chicken, which is why I bought it. It looks nice, is sturdy, yet not too heavy to move, clean and store. The locking lid is a beautiful idea. A few concerns: the temperature control sits below the handle which gets hot when in use so care needs to be taken if the temperature needs to be adjusted during cooking; moisture seeps under the lid handle when washed which eventually dries but is annoying to see and makes me want to unscrew the lid to dry it out. Other than that, the skillet is perfect for my needs and cooked my chicken perfectly!
I love that this skillet locks on the top & drains grease!!!!!
It just doesn't get hot enough for frying. This skillet would heat up but would not retain the proper heat during the cooking process making for bad fried food. There's no way I could ever get close to burning anything. It took at least 15 minutes to cook french toast and just forget trying to cook pancakes. And I made floured pork chops that took forever and they didn't get a crispy outside at all. I tried to fry on the highest setting. The highest heat settings (375 - 400 degrees) are not really doing the job for frying, browning, or sizzling the way I'm used to cooking. This skillet is just plain unusable to me. I would return it to Walmart but I had already thrown away the original Packaging and according to the warranty they charge me to return it to them. Very costly mistakes!!!!!
Nice electric skillet. The only thing I wish it had was a vent hole, but it does have a drainage spout that can actually vent. Overall very satisfied.
This is the best electric skillet we have ever owned! It makes cooking a pleasure, and is so easy to clean. We highly reccomend it to everyone.
The clip area of the lid is hard to clean. It gets hot almost immediately though which is great. I just don't like not being able to see that something is really clean before I put my food in or near it.
great product and after researching online walmart had the best price I could find at the time. This was a replacement gift for a friend. Great quality!
