The unit provides a smooth cooking surface that heats quickly and evenly - measuring a generous 16" x 12". Use it for anything from scrambled eggs, pancakes and French toast to frying bacon for BLTs, making grilled cheese sandwiches and much more. A secure-fitting tempered-glass lid comes included, which helps trap in heat and moisture and allows for checking on cooking food at a glance. With the lid in place, the skillet works exceptionally well for frying chicken, baking a casserole, or cooking a stew. To set or adjust the temperature, simply turn the dial on its user-friendly temperature probe. Other highlights include a sleek modern look, cool-touch side handles for safe transport, and a dishwasher-safe design (with the probe removed) for quick clean-up. This Oster® Electric Skillet has a 1-year limited warranty.

Great Size! Good Quality!After my old skillet was going out, this was a great replacement. It looked like any other skillet, but once I pulled it out of the packaging, I could see how large the skillet really is. Not only is it larger than normal skillets, it's also a deeper pan. This really helped when making large meals like my chicken curry that made huge quantities. My only gripe about this product is that the standard cord is extremely short, making options of where to cook with this limited if I didn't have an extension cord. Overall, I think this is a good product to have in my kitchen.
FYI: I received this product as a sample to review.

4.5 Stars from my family of 5My family and I love this thing. We've been using it almost everyday since we got it. First, the only thing I will say negative is the cord length. I could use a few more inches. And there's a pretty loud hum during warm up but as long as you know that's what's up, you won't think somethings about to blow up. Now, the good stuff: it's huge, seriously. Plenty of room to cook for my family of five. The temp control is awesome. It's great to set it and not have to keep messing with it. Super easy to wash and nothing sticks to it. We love this thing. Can't wait to cook dinner with it tonight!

Uneven heatingThis skillet looks good out of the box and set up is super easy. The lid has a nice weight to it and the cord is sufficiently long. The handles stay comfortable to the touch during cooking and cleanup isn't difficult.
Unfortunately it lacks in even cooking across the surface. When cooking bacon the ends we're beautifully crisped while the middle of the strips were still chewy. It was quite obvious where the heating elements were. I will use the skillet only for items that need to be moved around like scrambled eggs (which cooked up well). I would not recommend for pancakes, French toast (ok I have breakfast on the brain) or hash browns. I really wanted to like this skillet more, it'll be a backup in the kitchen but not a frequently used item.
Full disclosure- I received this product for free to review.

Efficient and reliableI was quite happy with this product. My original review was 5 stars and it still is! The size is perfect for larger meals but still small enough to store efficiently. My favorite feature is the vented lid which keeps my food warm and moist. I also love the fact that it can be washed which makes clean up a breeze. It doesn't heat up your kitchen so this would also be ideal in the summer time for meals instead of cooking on your stove.
I received this product as a sample to review and I'm so glad I did because I plan on using it for many more years to come!

Love it But...I Bought this skillet for its size and because we like them so much. We have used it about five times since we bought it and the temperature control probe broke. I haven't found a replacement part for it so now I have a great skillet to look at instead of cook in.

Great productAfter using this skillet a few times, I realized how much I love it. The skillet is larger than most at a 16 x 12 size. It's large enough and deep enough to cook for a large family. The modern style comes easy to clean with the nonstick coated pan. I love the cool touch handles. After cooking a meal, I can move the entire skillet to the dinner table for serving. It also comes with a steam vented glass lid so you can easily view the food cooking. I highly recommend this skillet to anyone who likes to cook an array of food at one time such as stir fried beef and vegetables. Extremely convenient and large enough to cook bacon and eggs together. Although I received this product to review, I would be extremely satisfied if purchasing for myself.

Everything sticksI bought this product 1 & 1/2 months ago. From day 1 everything stuck to the skillet. it doesn't matter how much oil / butter you use everything will stick. Ground meat even sticks!

I like this skillet a lot. However...This thing works like a charm. I can't say enough about the operation of the unit. However, it fell off the counter the other day due to teenage roughhousing and the handle broke.
Like the other reviewer, I cannot find replacement parts.
The skillet would have gotten 5 stars if not for being unable to replace parts.
If anyone knows where to purchase replacement parts let me know by posting a reply or another review.
