The Presto Electric Foldaway Skillet model 06857 is unique in that the handles can be folded down and the base of the skillet is easily removed for cleaning and storage. Many families like an appliance that can bake, fry, grill, roast and stews. This all-in-one appliance does all that and more. It has a built-in pouring spout so you can easily pout out any liquids and it doubles as a spoon rest. Cooking your favorite meals will be a breeze because is doubles as a server when needed.

The skillet has a 16-inch surface with a 2 ¾ inch depth so you will have lots of room to cook large casseroles and other foods using this appliance. Cooking scrambled eggs, pancakes, ribs and steaks can all be done using this skillet.

A great feature of this skillet it that the heating temperature setting is evenly distributed and maintained throughout the entire skillet surface which makes for great tasting meals. The temperature setting ranges are from warm, and 200 to 400 degrees F. It does not have an auto shut-off feature which means that you must turn off the unit manually after cooking.

By using the electric skillet you will save money by not using the stove or oven. It warms up to the desired temperature very quickly. The entire skillet doubles as a buffet server. Which is great for parties and celebrations where lots of people may be over. Just set it in a location where an electric outlet is and cover it. Keep the temperature on the “warm” setting so the food keeps warm down to the last piece.

It has a non-stick coating surface which helps prevents sticking of foods. It is recommended that you avoid using no-stick cooking sprays as they may cause the cooking surface to become tacky.

As when any electric appliance, be sure to let it cool before cleaning.

The unit comes with a 1-year warranty and manual that has suggested times and temperature settings for various types of foods.

Please Note: If you choose to wash the skillet pan in a dishwasher, the bottom of the pan will likely discolor due to the caustic nature of the dish washing detergent. A gray residue may also form on the skillet bottom which may transfer onto towels and/or skin.

Glass Lid Cover Care

The glass cover may break for no apparent reason if you fail to follow these instructions.

Broken glass can cause personal injury or property damage. Do not use cover if it is chipped or cracked. Handle cover carefully and avoid rough handling. Do not handle hot cover with wet towel or place hot cover on a cold or wet surface. Sudden, extreme changes in temperature may cause glass to break.

Allow cover to cool before washing. This cover is dishwasher safe. Keep the cover clean. Do not use steel wool cleaning pads or abrasive powders which can scratch or weaken the glass. Nonabrasive pads or powders may be used if necessary. Do not scrape or gouge glass with hard or sharp utensils. 

Hand Washing Care

When washing the skillet by hand, remove heat control and wash in warm, soapy water. Make sure to also clean the underside of the pan, as necessary. Rinse and dry thoroughly. The nonstick surface may be cleaned with a non-metal cleaning pad, such as Scotch-Brite Multi-Purpose Scrub Sponge or Scotch-Brite Dobie Cleaning Pad. Firm pressure can be applied, if necessary.

Do not use steel wool or abrasive kitchen cleaners. Soaking the skillet to loosen food residue is not necessary. If, however, soaking the skillet is desired, do not soak for more than two hours. Soaking for more than two hours may damage the nonstick finish. In time, the nonstick finish may darken over the heating element. To remove this discoloration, use a commercial cleaner designed for cleaning surfaces, such as Dip-It Destainer.
