We bought this skillet because our Farberware finally gave out. We wanted a similar product, preferably made in the U.S.A. This product was the only one listed that was made here. It also seemed to fill most of our requirements. it was pricey, but we figured that since it was made here, that was worth the higher price. Unfortunately it was not made here. It was made in China. Overstock needs to stop doing this. I had heard from someone else that this happened, but I thought that they had stopped falsely listing the country of origin.
I purchased this skillet last year and have used it about once a week. Now that our stove top needs replacing ... I have been using it every day. It's worth every penny. The stainless steel is not thin. This is a solid, well made pan. It's easy to clean. I only put the base, without the plug' in the sink. A soft sink brush or cloth cleans this pan very easily. This electric skillet pops our popcorn better than our popcorn machine. It's a good backup for your kitchen and a good purchase.
I have a cheaper electric skillet with hot spots and it is really annoying to use. The AROMA SKILLET is so nice to cook in, no hot spots, easy to care for and is really pleasing to look at. I put in on the table as a serving dish. Excellent Skillet!
I would certainly recommend this electric skillet. I have used this type (electric) skillet for many years. I had some concern with it being stainless-steele, but no worry it cleanes up like a dream. Cooks evenly, couldn't be more pleased. Oh! a big plus it is beautiful, I keep it out on the kitchen cabinet.
