Summary: I have had this skillet for a very long time - probably around 15 years. I use it for liquidy type things mostly (I make this tomato onion mushroom green pepper gravy - yum yum), or for things I need to stir often (browning, sautéing etc).
I was very disappointed with this electric skillet
1 March 2016
Summary: I was very disappointed with this electric skillet. Upon the first use, while heating the skillet, there was a humming/buzzing droning noise that was off and on throughout the cooking process. I sent this back and requested a new replacement.
Summary: Great pan but does NOT hold the temperature. I was given this as a gift and love the pan but it's virtually impossible to use because the temperature shuts off sporadically while using. Called Cuisinart and they were not helpful.
Summary: I loved the skillet like this that I owned previously. It is great for cooking for a large group/family. Sadly,this unit is defective. It has a section that does not heat. I will try to return for a replacement. See photo of pancakes with one corner remaining as raw batter.
