Anything you would use a stovetop frypan for

Also makes a good wok.
And is good for simmering things like asparagus that are better lying flat.
And its nice flat bottom makes it a good choice for pikelets and drop scones. You can do a roast in them no trouble.
We cooked for a year (during a reno) with an electric frypan, an electric saucepan, and a microwave. (They don't make electric saucepans any more - slow cookers seem to fill that slot.)

I like toasted sandwiches cooked in them. Recently I have been putting a bit of oil in to cook the first side and marg. the other side.Easier to do rather than butter both sides. Don't do on full heat.
Rice rissotto-pkt of course! Have fun.

I was told at a recycling centre that people are buying them for home brewing ;)

My Cambodian relatives love them for steamboat type meals.

I love mine too!Makes me feel all nostalgic - Mum used it ALOT when I was a child, then when she passed away in my teens, my Dad kept it, and now, in my 30's, I have it back. it's great for making bigger meals in, ie stirfries, bolognaise etc. plus chicken drumsticks. but really I just like the 80's feeling when I'm using it :-)
