Thats all I use when I fry eggs. just make sure you use a very thin spatula to flip the eggs, Do not use any metal utensils, you can find very thin plastic spatulas that will stand-up up to the heat. I found mine at a local CVS store that works just fine.

yes you can fry eggs in it, but I would suggest making sure they are in the middle of the pan, since the heating element on the bottem circles the bottom of the pan and tends to cook eggs unevenly

Well, in an absolute pinch. There is a lower temp setting and a 'warm' setting besides all the higher temp settings. I'd think you'd want to watch it very closely if 'boiling'. You'd not want to scorch the cooking surface of the pan should you boil the water dry or the soup mixture. Otherwise, I'd recommend another type cooking tool.

Yes, I do both the soup and the pasta. The key is to have the water be no higher than half-height. Else it will boil over. Even if it boils over, all you have is the mess. I made that mistake many times (smile here).

I use it mostly for making rice, and boil over is a problem there, too. Just keep the water level no higher than half, and set the temperature to just past '200', and you'll be okay.

answer 1
As with most skillets the heating element in a circular pattern and will naturally heat up in a circle just above the element. This skillet will cook hotter in this area rather than in the middle. If you preheat the skillet with the lid on prior to cooking you will find this will improve the heating surface to heat more thoroughly.

answer 3
It does cook evenly. I find that it is better to start cooking at 350 degrees then decrease the temparature from there. At 350, the heat is most evenly and quickly distributed. You can then use the cover to keep in the heat after reducing the temp control.

That's a no, due to the heating element. However, because of the non-stick surface, it washes very quickly. If you let the food dry on, just fill 1/2 full with hot water and let sit for 5 min. DO NOT use metal based scrubbers and DO NOT scrub hard with a plastic scrubber, or it will eventually wear down the coating.

Right between 200 and 250 degrees, it will keep it warm without a problem. But, as always, you still need to check and stir periodically, especially with gravy.

answer 6
Your best bet is to get one of those simmer plates for your gas burner. It will keep your pan a bit further from the flame and allow a good simmer. I don't recommend this Rival electric skillet as a solution because it simmers poorly. Two reasons: it cycles on and off in order to maintain the chosen temperature, so it is hot, then cool. AND it doesn't simmer well because the heating element is a circular affair that does not cover the entire cooking surface; its just a ring with no heating in the middle or on the edges.

I keep the temperature on 325 degrees, butter the outside slices of bread and cook until I see the cheese is almost melted and the underside is a nice golden brown.
