The Presto 16-Inch Electric Foldaway Skillet is made of heavy cast aluminum that is non-stick on both the exterior and interior.
It can reach temperatures up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
The pan measures approximately 16 x 12 x 2.75 inches on the interior and has a built-in spout that helps with venting, pouring, and serves as a spoon rest.
The lid is made of tempered glass, and the handles stay cool so you can handle them without oven mitts.
The Electric Foldaway Skillet gets its name from how easy it is to store.
You can detach the handles and base, and then nest them in the pan.
The pan and cover are dishwasher safe.
Just be sure to remove the heat control.
Presto backs the skillet with a 1-year limited warranty.

Lynn DeBolt gave the skillet five stars because of the even cooking, the easy pouring and venting provided by the built-in spout, and that the clean-up was effortless.

One Customer said about it:
”I use an electric skillet almost daily, instead of cooking on my stove top. It’s just cleaner and easier that making a mess in skillets or pans, having to clean the stove and surrounding counter tops, pan, etc. Any way, I’ve been through several electric skillets in the last 20 years. Assorted brands and sizes. Here is what I LOVE about this one.
- Cooks very evenly. That said, there is absolutely a ring that gets hotter directly over the heating element that you will notice when making sauces or gravy, etc. But it does heat much more consistently throughout the pan basin than others I have used.
- SUPER easy to clean. Just unsnap the base and the whole skillet goes into the dishwater.
- Has a pour spout on one side. You can rest a spoon there also. FAB!
- Nice and deep. Holds a large capacity of whatever you are preparing. You can cook several different things at the same time.
- The base folds up and stores inside the pan. Put in the power cord, flip the lid upside down and it does not take up much cabinet space at all.
I have had this for about 6 weeks and have used it at least 30 times. So far, so fantastic.”
