The Oster CKSTSKFM05 16 Inch Electric Skillet provides a generous cooking surface (measuring 16 by 12-inch with a depth of 3 inches) that heats quickly and evenly. It can be used to cook breakfast foods, variety of meats, pancakes and much more!
The skillet has a secure-fitted tempered-glass lid with steam vent, which allows for monitoring your food while cooking.
Out Of Time?
Using the lid, the electric skillet works really well for frying chicken, making a casserole, or cooking a stew.
The temperature control is easy to use: Simply turn the dial on its temperature probe.
The Oster electric skillet has cool-touch side handles for safe transport, and a removable temperature dial. When the temperature dial is removed, both pan and lid can be fully immersed in water for a quick and easy clean-up.
The skillet has a 24 inch power cord, of which 1 customer complained was too short. However we need to point out that when it comes to safety, a shorter cord is actually better to prevent tripping or entanglement.
There are mixed reviews (both positive and negative) on the durability of the Teflon coating, which makes us wonder if people are taking proper care when it comes to nonstick surfaces: Always use wooden or heat proof silicone utensils.

The Oster CKSTSKFM05 16 Inch Electric Skillet is very suitable for large families thanks to it’s large cooking area and 3 inch depth. It does have some issues, particularly the aforementioned non-stick layer, but we feel this has to with proper care of the material.
Considering the price and the size of the skillet this a good buy.
A similar item is the Presto 06857 which is even slightly cheaper.
