Great Unit, use it 3 to 5 times a week
Bought this skillet after growing tired of replacing non stick coated skillets, due to the non stick coating failing/pealing as early as 6 months of use.
The Sunbeam is easy to clean, and after seasoning the surface as instructed most foods do not stick if I use a little olive or canola oil.
Heats up fairly quickly.
I use it as often as 5 or 6 times a week.
Great for cooking chicken breasts with the right temp.
Also cooks steak well. Which I found the ones with non stick coating do not do well.
Use 4 times week approx
Easy to Clean
Regulates Temp Well
Lid fits well

Size is good for Single or Two People easy to Store.
While washing my new pan for the first time a 2.5cm long very thin spike of metal went right through my little finger because the rim of the lid wasn't cut correctly and running the tea towel around it was enough to lift the spike. After many emails, and a long wait, the pan was replaced by Sunbeam and I sent the faulty one back as they requested. I included a note and a warning so anyone opening the package didn't get hurt. It's been three months and I am still waiting for an apology for the pain and inconvenience. No matter how good the pan has been since then my experience with it and Sunbeam has been an unhappy one.
Loved it for 12 months, then half the element stopped working. Of course out of warranty, I would like another but worried same thing will happen. It is a great size for two, still making up my mind to try another one or not?
After 20 odd years of fantastic FP250E & SK012G we bought a 6450 two days ago, followed the book to a T. The season oil burnt, smoke came out the plug area, the bottoms brown, lids poor fit, temperatures crazy, insides groovy not polished, its going back. No more, Sunbeam.

I had a Sunbeam Ellise Stainless Steel Skillet SK6410 for 10 years absolutely beautiful but unfortunately like all things the sealed heating element failed to work. I have replaced with another but better and improved. Sunbeam Ellise Stainless Steel Skillet SK 6450. Very highly polished stainless steel. Looks great, more heat settings, higher domed lid and wider look through glass lid. Used a couple of times performance is just great, ideal for slow and Stir fry cooking. With the higher dome lid roasting large meat a breeze. Thank you Sunbeam for another lovely Skillet.
We spent months looking for our ideal electric fry pan; not too big, with a stainless steel rather than non stick coated inside surface and now after settling on the Ellise skillet find it nothing special. The salesperson told us that the base had excellent heat coverage but we haven't found that at all. When using it for pikelets the outer edges are pale and uncooked although fine for things like stews and poaching eggs. A little bit disappointing really
Looks great, perfect size for 2 people, high rise lid for roasts & baking, stainless steel as well as non stick option
Element doesn't have good all over coverage so outer edges don't cook well
I love my skillet! I use it most nights, and it is surprising how much you can fit in this little baby! No complaints about it, my sister has one too, and loves it just as much.
Great size for 1/2 person cooking, heats up quickly, good temperature control, easy to clean (although have not tested it in the dishwasher!), stainless steel surface does not scratch and peel like teflon non-stick pans.
no steam vent in the lid
Perfect the right size Can't do without it
This skillet is marvellous for single households as is not as large as the normal fry pan range.Cooks beautifully from small amounts to larger meals.Is very easy to keep clean just a wipe afterwards and the Stainless Steel is looking great again.The glass dome see through lid a great asset
energy efficient,reliable and great to use I could'nt do without it
Questions & Answers
Where can I I buy the stainless steel ellise? I dont want anything else
I am looking for an electric skillet frypan and was wondering if this one was still available as I have been unable to find one in ant store.
Can you put this pan in the dishwasher or must it be washed by hand??
Below are the cleaning instructions for the SK6410.
Care and Cleaning Control Probe:
If cleaning is necessary, wipe over with a damp cloth.
Note: The Control Probe must be removed before the skillet is cleaned and the Control Probe inlet must be dried before the skillet is used again.
NEVER IMMERSE THE CONTROL PROBE IN WATER OR OTHER LIQUID.
Pan and Lid:
The pan and lid are fully immersible and can be washed in warm soapy water using a mild household detergent and a soft washing sponge. They can also be cleaned in the dishwasher.
