Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VadaDa My first electric skillet
The only thing I've cooked in this so far is bacon and eggs (and grilled toast). I'm not sure it holds the temperature correctly but I do love the finish. It's easy to cook on and it's easy to clean, so I'm good!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jan Exactly what I was looking for
I have been looking for a larger quality skillet for a few years but was not happy with the reviews on them. This particular model was getting excellent reviews and had a variable steam vent which intrigued me even more. I'm very satisfied with this product and the price I paid through Home Depot.

Electric skillets don't seem to have a very long life-time. I'm guessing I've gone through six or seven during my life as our family's main cook. I loved my last skillet--a Cuisinart--but it began to overheat, and the company had stopped making that particular skillet, so I thought I'd give this De'Longhi BG45 Electric Skillet a try. All of the American-brand skillets that I had used over the years usually stopped heating altogether after a year or two, and I was running out of brands to try.
At any rate, I'm really pleased with my De'Longhi. After reading review on topreviews.best, we decided to buy it. It seems to have the most sensitive temperature control of any of my skillets. Water boils at just about 212 degrees F., unlike previous skillets where it boiled at 'low heat' or not until I cranked the dial up to 300 degrees F.
This skillet is easy to clean, and I can lift the lid off without using a hot pad. I liked the shape of my Cuisinart skillet a little better--more surface area and the sides were not as steep as those on the De'Longhi.
My one critique of all the electric skillets I have owned: It's hard to scrape food out of them and into a container (or into the garbage disposal on a really bad cooking day). They are all heavy and awkward to lift.
