Default Deep Skillets, Whatís Your Opinion on Using Them

Last weekend i went to look at a skillet and lid that wasnít described well and just two photos of top of lid and bottom of skillet. When I got there I was surprised to see it was a chicken fryer / deep skillet. For those that have them and use them, I would like to hear some of your opinions of what you like to cook in them and how often you use them and your overall thoughts of them. It may grow on me, if anything Iím keeping the lid

Thanks all, it just went in the lye bath today and in time I will post a thread on it with a few questions. Itís a nice skillet with a fully marked lid

Frying food is of course what many use it for. Also, popping popcorn.

One thing to cook is burgers. It helps keep the grease from spaying all over the place. I also use it to make sliced potato layered meal. You can use about any meat, depends on if you want breakfast or dinner. I like my deep pans.

I know the obvious of frying food. It being taller than Iím used to I looking for thoughts outside the box. The popcorn idea did cross my mind. It would be a heck of a popcorn popper, itís a size #10

They make a mean cobbler also. I use mine a lot in the winter for chilie and beef stew.

Anything that you could cook in a small Dutch oven. It is one with a handle basically.

Exactly what I was going to say. I bake bread in several of mine when the DOs are busy with other things or I just want them in the rotation.

Like others, I mostly use mine as a high-sided skillet to reduce splatter mess.

I have one that's used pretty much exclusively for rice and noodles. Does a fantastic job.

Thanks once again guys, I will have to play with this one to see how often I use it and what for.

Sneak peek of skillet, more later after bath and summer Texas seasoning
