Until Tuesday I’d never heard of an electric saucepan. They apparently aren’t popular, but they are a wonderful invention. Based on the same concept as an electric skillet, they are a saucepan that plugs in and heats up without any other heat source. I found mine at a thrift store: it cost $3. Considering the reviews I’ve read, they heat higher and faster than individual tabletop burners or warmers. Mine has a dial marked by degrees, so I know exactly how high I’m heating my food. It only takes a little more room than a regular pan to store… but so far there’s no need for storage concerns. I use it, wash it, and put it on the counter where it sits ready to prepare my next meal.
