Mini Electric Frying Pan

I am thinking of purchasing a "Mini" Electric Frying Pan from Elite Cuisine or Continental but have read many blogs on how the nonstick surface is coming up after two or a few uses. I really want one of these since this would be perfect for a single person. Is there something that I can do if and when this does happen? Can this be repaired? How? Would someone in my town be able to fix it?
I have not seen them sold in stores and are only available on-line. I would hate to spend extra and have to return it.
Please help.
Thanks,
Frances

    We have the same problem with the Continental brand mini electric skillet. My husband used it to cook a chicken breast 4 days while on vacation (this is what he eats for breakfast). The finish is coming off and of course, I am unable to locate anything online about this company. It says on the box a 1 year warranty, but no paperwork was included with any company name or contact number or address. Loved the convenience of this little skillet, but very very disappointed with the quality.

Cord doesnt work where do I get a new one


The cost is usually; too high with shipping to replace a cord. You may be able to get it from a rummage sale. Getting replacement parts for electrical componets usually involves a ship from area somewhere in China. Stay safe and purchase a new frying pan on sale at target or kohl's.

How do you put the handle back on a sabora frying pan when u take it off?


The handle is suppose to come off of a Sabora frying pan. It was made that way. Only, I've never been able to get it off, so I always left mine one. Now, somehow, my husband got it off. I'm not sure how to get mine on either. No rivets necessary (it just slips on and off anyway). I'll come back and repost if I find the directions online.

I am looking for a cord for my hoover fry pan model B3009 can you help me ?


I had been searching the net for a source of control cords for the line of Hoover frypans. Unfortunately, I found no source for the originals anymore. However, I continued in trying to find a substitute that would allow one to continue using these fantastic frypans. I was successful in finding one for the last generation of Hoover electric frypans that take the 1500 watt, 120 volt AC power cord. The pan says to use control no. 9906 or 78T. I have found that the powercord that fits a Presto Griddle model no. 07030 will fit and function properly. Presto also has a frypan that uses the same control. I purchased a griddle July 4, 2011 and tested the functionality the same day. The cord has the part model number of 0690005. The Presto cord will work in a Hoover. However, the Hoover original power cord will not fit the Presto. This is a good thing for us Hoover owners.
In 1965 I went to work for a retailer that sold Hover products. Vaccuum cleaners, toasters, steamirons, and electic frypans, etc. Hoover had a patent on a process to bond stainless steel to aluminum. So the steamirons and frypans were a great fit for this process. The control for these frypans had a female connection for the temperature control. These were a 1650 watt rated control. What I have been able to find is that this control is no longer available. Hoover is the only one that I am aware of that used this female configuration design.
In 1971 I went to work for the Hoover Company as a Field Sales Rep. About 1975 or so they redesigned their line of frypans and went to a male probe for the temperature reading for the controls. This is the design of frypan that I still own. About five years ago my mother found a phone number for small appliance parts to repair your broken items. She called and was told they did not carry parts for Hoover, but, was put on hold and they transferred her to an order desk for Hoover parts. They had the cord that was designed for the Hoover pans. As I remember this replacement cost about $25.00 with shipping. A couple years later, we thought that a spare in the closet would be worth having around. Hoover had no more small appliance parts anymore.
You look at the Presto cord and you can tell it is not a Hoover. However, you plug it in and it is a good fit. I hope this can help all those people out there that have a frying pan that they have acquired from a garage sale, EBAY, left in the will, etc. These frying pans were built to last like all of Hoover's appliances. Models include: Aluminum pans, stainless steel pans w/warming trays (one model had a copper anodized lid), B3039 stainless steel with broiler lids, the 81/2 inch mini fry pans, B3031 fondue pot w/ mini fry pan, and the B3087 Crepe Maker. Hoover acquired Knapp-Monarch which brought them the Nesco line of appliances. Nesco had a lot of the Hoover line under their own brand name. By the late 1970's Hoover closed out their small appliances. In the 80's the Hoover company was acquired by Chicago-Pacific which was later acquired by Maytag. Today Maytag is part of Whirlpool Corporation. Last I knew the Hoover vaccuum operations were for sale.
Hoover tried to build more use into their small appliances. That is why they built their frying pans with a warming tray below the pan. Keep your bacon warm while frying your eggs. Warm the bun while making burgers or a Sloppy Joe. Those that purchased the top of the line with the broiler lid got the most useful fry pan ever built. I use the broiler more than the pan.
Hope this will help those in need of a cord. I have seen where someone dropped the pan and broke the handles. The older pans had fixed handles. The last time Hoover sold parts this was all you could find. The last generation of pans had removable handles making it great to keep clean. From a safety stand point: It can't be fixed. However, with a little fooling around it might be possible to fabricate something using wood blocks. This is not something for someone without an engineering mindset for safety. It can be very dangerous.

I really don't think there is much you can do. You could ask a kitchen utensil distributor if they have a contact to have the pan re-coated for you, otherwise remove the rest of the coating and use it as a conventional pan.

Rounded bottom on frying pan


I did a CPR move on the bottom of my pans by turning the pan upside down and hanging the handle off the edge of my counter. I then pushed down with my palms. It was easy.
