NESCO Electric Skillet Modernizes the Historic Dish

Tuna casserole, green bean casserole, shepherd’s pie, tater tot hotdish. For decades, families across the United States have enjoyed variations of the simple casserole. They have even become a part of traditions. NESCO appliances have always been along for the ride, and our Electric Skillet makes cooking and serving your favorite casserole even easier.

The word ‘casserole’ is derived from the french word for “deep saucepan.” While it originally referenced the dish it was cooked in, it has also become synonymous with the food itself.

The dish, first appearing in American cookbooks during the early twentieth century, have provided economic sustenance during America’s Great Depression and both World Wars and provided a way for families all over the country to not only stretch expensive protein during hard times, but also utilize leftovers in a new, tasty way.

Chances are you have your own memories of church suppers, potlucks, or holiday dinners with a family casserole recipe as the centerpiece. Love them or hate them, they are often simple, versatile, economical, great for sharing, and delicious.

NESCO Electric Skillet Makes a Perfect Casserole Dish

Historically, casseroles are prepared, placed in a dish, and then put in a conventional oven to finish cooking. This could sometimes take more than an hour and multiple dishes.

NESCO’s 12-inch Electric Skillet, at 4-inches deep, allows you to cook, fry, bake, and serve all from the same device. This can be accomplished without ever turning on your oven.

The Electric Skillet has a premium non-stick interior so everything you cook releases easily and cleans quickly, and the adjustable temperature allows you the flexibility to prepare a variety of foods at home or on the go.
