Elite Gourmet EG6201 PFOA-Free 12

Elite Gourmet EG6201 PFOA-Free 12"x12"x3.2" 7.5Qt / Scratch Resistant Dishwasher Safe

by Maxi-Matic

PFOA FREE marbleized non-stick is more durable than non-stick and will not crack or peel. It quickly releases food for a no-fuss quick and easy clean up. Scratch resistant surface allows for worry-free cooking

The Elite Gourmet EG6201 electric skillet is an above-average skillet. It's solidly constructed with thick cast aluminum, and it heats quickly and evenly. The temperature control unit has a cool-touch knob and trigger release probe, and the lid is glass, so it's easy to clean. The surface is also non stick, so cleanup is quick and easy. Unfortunately, the skillet's lip is elevated, which makes it difficult to pour liquids from smaller containers into the skillet. The skillet's temperature can go as high as 400°F, although most recipes call for temperatures between 350 and 375°F. The skillet's auto shut-off feature works as advertised. However, the skillet heats up quickly -- it may take a couple of attempts to preheat the skillet before it reaches your desired temperature. The Elite Gourmet EG6201 is dishwasher safe, but the lid is not. We recommend hand washing the lid and washing the skillet in warm, soapy water. The skillet comes with a cooking rack, and it's dishwasher safe. The skillet has a 120V AC power adapter.
