Electric Frying Pan

The electric frying pan has been around for many years, and it is still being used in kitchens throughout the world today. An electric frying pan is a pan that operates on electricity rather than over a range top or stove top. There are some models whose heat index can be adjusted with the flick of a knob to decrease or increase heat.

Usage

Electric frying pans are often available in either a round shape or a rectangular, one and sizes vary. An electric frying pan may be used to cook meats, poultry, and seafood, fry eggs, or make pancakes. Some electric frying pans are manufactured with additional coatings, such as nonstick, stainless, copper or cast iron, depending on your preferences.

Advantages/Disadvantages

One advantage to using an electric frying pan is that they cook foods more evenly and thoroughly. They are a little more difficult to maneuver because of the cord, however. Electric pans are also a little more difficult to clean because of the cord, which in some cases can be removed completely, depending on the model.

Suitability

Electric frying pans are considered to be suitable for college students in dorm rooms, small apartment dwellers, or individuals who do not have an actual stove top or range to cook and prepare their meals.
