With minimal effort and only a couple hours of cooking time, you should have a perfectly tasty pot roast right from your electric skillet. The seasoned carrots, potatoes, celery, and onion will cook right beside the roast for great flavor and perfect tenderness. Electric skillets do a great job by cooking evenly throughout the pan and regulating the temperature consistently, which makes them a perfect choice for summer baking. Even beyond keeping the heat down, this could be a great option if your oven is already full of casseroles for family gatherings!
