Double Skillet Cooking System Review

The Double Skillet cooking concept is able to cook just about every thing from boiled eggs to a full roast! Just like an oven.. the two halves clip together to roast or stack on top of each other for layer cooking. Each pan is 57mm deep and 20cm diameter with removable handles and glass lid

We asked long-standing member and 'cook extraordinaire' Cas54 to give her views on the double skillet - find out below what she thought (article updated May 2020 with new supplier)

Image Key

Both pans used on one burner (Fig.1)
Pans can be used separately - can also be used as a frying pan (Fig. 2)
Pans locked together used on the hob ... work like an oven (Fig. 3)
Without handles .. can be used in oven ie: as cake tins (Fig.4)
Stacked with handles inside and glass lid ... ready for storing (Fig. 5)

Double Skillet - where to start

Suitable for gas & electric stoves
This multi purpose pan will cook almost anything.
The 2 x 9.5" diameter non-stick pans have detachable handles for easy storage and oven use. It comes complete with glass lid, it is lightweight, easy to clean and take up minimum storage.

Just like an oven

The two non-stick pans clip together to roast (see illustration 3) or stack on top of each other utilising the heat resistant glass lid for layer cooking.
Remember when you are laying cooking, the pan with the lip is always the bottom pan, and the top pan sits in the recess lip as shown in Figure 1.

The double skillets are so versatile and you can do a whole range of cooking in them including: Roasting, Boiling, Frying, Toasted sandwiches, Chips, Jacket potatoes, Cakes, Re heating of Pies and Pasties, Pizzas etc.

Layer cooking

When you are layer cooking the pan with the lip goes on the bottom, and you must cook something substantial because this is the heat source to cook your vegetables with.

For example: When cooking braising steak, casserole, mince, chicken pieces in sauce or stew in the lower pan, then put your vegetables in the upper pan. (not potatoes, because these are better cooked in the lower pan.) Try to keep your veg an even size as you would for a microwave and add half a cup of boiling water to the veg. Put the glass lid on and sit your veg pan into the lip of the lower pan, then sit it all on together as the veg will take as long as the meat to cook.

If you want the vegetables to cook quicker and softer, lay them in the pan with half inch of water (glass lid on) and sit them on the direct heat, then bring to the boil and leave on direct heat for approx 4-5 minutes before putting on top of your meat. This will cook them quicker and softer

Cas54's Conclusions:

All in all ...... I have found the Double Skillet to be the most used bit of kit for camping (and indoors).

Used everyday ....... makes perfect rice (one of my downfalls) .... roasties in 30/40 mins .... reheating pies rolls and pizza's ... and not forgetting the camping omelettes

With non stick interior ...... and the detachable handles, (I only attach handles while cooking on the hob) the pans are easily cleaned .... even in the smaller camping wash bowls

For Storage ... they stack together .... I keep handles in bottom pan for safe keeping, and the glass lid fits nicely upside down on top of pans ..... along with a milk pan - meal ideas are endless.
