When Drew Barrymore launched her Beautiful kitchenware line last year, she changed the countertop game. Seemingly inspired by the sage cabinet trend, her debut collection, which touted a double-basket air fryer and a two-slice touch-screen toaster, proved that small appliances can be colorful, functional, and affordable. Now the actor and Flower Home founder may be giving the Crock-Pot some competition with a tool that makes food prep easier, especially in tight quarters. The new 5-in-1 Expandable Skillet eliminates the need for a bunch of individual hands-off products that tend to clutter up your kitchen. This one practically does it all.
The $59 appliance is the first electric skillet on the market that sautés, steams, simmers, and slow cooks all within a cast-aluminum shell that has the ability to expand. The extender enables you to nearly double the pan’s depth, taking you from a 5- to 7-quart capacity in seconds. Running behind? The 1,500-watt heating system gets you cooking in just minutes and offers five settings, from a sizzling high heat to a low and steady temp that transforms the tool into an attractive buffet server for gatherings.
One of our favorite features has nothing to do with the actual food prep at all. At the back of the piece, you’ll spot a stainless steel lid rest, meaning there’s no chance you’ll misplace the top mid-sauté or constantly need to wipe up steamy condensation in between taste tests. And best of all, once you remove the heating probe, it can be fully immersed in water to make cleanup a breeze.
